    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Sunnyvale, CA (US)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Pretty standard: you are screened on the phone first; a manager describes the position and high level need for a hire. Then asks about the reason the candidate is on the market. Some questions on past work. If satisfied, it then goes to the technical team. Typical technical questions: sorting, linked list to code on the board; questions on work done in the previous companies.

    Interview Questions

    • Write a linked list add and delete functions on the board.   1 Answer

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milford, CT (US)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Milford, CT (US)).

    Interview

    I gave them my resume at a college career fair. They contacted me a few weeks later and set up a phone interview.

    The phone interview consisted of a coding problem, which you had to solve using Google docs while the interviewer watches you. The interviewer was very nice and we fixed a couple bugs in my code together.

    Next I had an on-site interview which lasted all day. I met with 8 different people from the company for 6 interviews and a lunch period. Almost all of the interviews were technical in nature. This includes coding, drawing software diagrams on a whiteboard, and verbally answering some questions. Once again everyone was very nice and they make it very easy for you to succeed.
