Software Engineer Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at BlackBerry.

Interview Details Started by handing in a CV. This lead to a telephone interview lasting about 30 minutes, mainly behavioural questions. After this I was invited to an assessment day at their campus, I had three interviews, which included both technical and more behavioural questions. Before leaving, I had to complete a small programming test (finding errors in code etc..)

Interview Question – Which of the following best describes TCP, and which describes UDP, and why: A telephone conversation and email.

This was unexpected to me because I had mentioned internet programming was not my strength, as my course had not covered it yet.

Negotiation Details – No negotiation, offer was far better than other offers I had received.
