Application

I applied online. The process took 6 months. I interviewed at QNX Software Systems (Ottawa, ON)

Interview

In span of few months, went through several interviews and some assignments. The interviewing manager doesn't bother reading or checking the assignments you submit. During the last phase of the interview the manager asks if the code works, despite having more than few months to review the code and test if it works. The assignments are a joke and they're never used for actual skill evaluation. They praise you during the interview process and string you along for a long time then offer a minuscule compensation package. Comparing the salary of CEO John Chen and average employee salary, you will see how unfairly their average employees are compensated. BB/QNX really needs to step it up and offer compensation package comparable to Shopify, Amazon, Microsoft, Intel, Facebook, and Apple. It’s wonders BB and QNX lost significant amount of talent to other tech companies.

Interview

PHONE INTERVIEW: general questions about your resume. Then talk about the code which sent to you. The code file is sent before the interview. But they do not have an online share board to talk about the issue of the code. Thus you only can use the line number to point out which code has some issue. After that ask some question about the c.

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at QNX Software Systems in Aug 2017

Interview

First interview by phone with shared screen. Technical questions and problem solving skills. Problems like: find issue with the code. Write specific function and unit test for it. And etc. In couple weeks there was second interview. Which was rescheduled several times. Technical questions and architecture questions. I would say I screwed up on second interview even though questions were not that complicated. I was preparing myself for multi-threading, algorithms and design questions. But there were bunch of questions related to processing strings. Answers for these questions are easy but not obvious when you stand next to white board. Probably because they interview a lot of people the interview process felt like roasting. It wasn't relaxed at all. Below I listed some of questions which I remember, but there were more. P.s. After couple weeks they have called me and offered a position. I have declined.

Interview Questions
  • Design architecture of social network. How would you post feed from client app. How would you notify other client app about new feed. What would table that stores user feeds look like?
  • Basic string processing questions like: verify given string is valid IP address with range 0 ... 255. Write unit test for it.
  • With given numbers (for example: 14115, 5123, 9434, 53, 837) find combination where concatenation of these numbers will return the largest possible number. (I thought this was dynamic programming question first. Then tried very lame approach, but the answer was really simple, which is embarassing).
  • Write basic hashset. How would you solve collisions (very straightforward).
  • In given c++ code find all issues. Code processes file: looks for a specific string is each line of the file. Specifically written poorly so it is hard to understand it.
