    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Waterloo, ON

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Waterloo, ON) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Phone Interview, as part of a co-op education process. Most of the interview was a casual conversation about my goals and education, with only one real technical question. Overall, it didn't seem like any of my previous interview experiences.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BlackBerry in June 2020.

    Interview

    Rather straightforward, it was the very first interview with a recruiter over the phone. We mostly covered my background and my interest in applying for the position. I was told they would get back to me shortly. It took close to 3 weeks before recruiting followed back up. The email I received was the same person I had previously spoken to asking to provide him some times/dates to speak about the position. I was a bit confused because it appeared as though they forgot we had spoken. I replied back and the they confirmed that he did forget that we spoke and then advised me that they would not be moving forward with my candidacy. I found this process to be disorganized, unprofessional, and frankly a waste of time.

    Senior Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Irvine, CA (US)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    This is actually for Cylance in Irvine. It has been acquired by Blackberry but most of the staff is still Cylance. I was interviewed by one of the Cylance guys. The interviewer was intellectually hostile. He was one of these PHD type guys and it seemed his main goal was to prove that, "You don't know what I know". lol Like peeling an onion, he just kept digging at everything I said with basically, "why?". That is till you got the point where you couldn't explain anymore because it was too detailed and he wouldn't stop till you hit a dead end.

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA (US)
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Mountain View, CA (US)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    Strange. It was very quiet in the office like no one wanted to work there or was afraid to communicate with coworkers. Nice location. Interviewer was pleasant and business like. Business is not heading in the right direction. Feels political based on what was shared.

    Customer Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at BlackBerry (Austin, TX (US)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    Had a ten minute face-to-face interview with one of the senior managers.

    Heard back sometime later and was offered an interview. It lasted about 2 hours and was split between two panels, one focusing on behavioral questions and the other focusing more on technical.

    Incredibly enjoyable experience, the people were interesting and it wasn't like talking to a brick wall like other places.

    Quick responses and kept in touch throughout the entire process.
