    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Motorola Mobility in October 2007.

    Interview Details

    Had my resume on Dice. HR sent me e-mail of interest. My e-mail reply was rejected as bad address. Frustrating! Could not reach anyone in HR. Found old friend working there and obtained interview. Phone interview happened first. In person interview was very easy. No test. Easy verbal Q&A.

    Interview Questions
    • How much work pressure can you withstand to deliver product on time under budget?   View Answers (2)
    • The interviewing manager knew very little about software and nothing about C. The engineers who interviewed me all asked astonishingly easy C questions.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Like most candidates I tried to keep my current salary secret and asked for more than current. HR said give me correct current salary or interview ends now. Very hardball with HR. They would not negotiate salary or benefits at all but I got more salary than I was making before anyhow.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Motorola Mobility.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by three people. It was all one on one interview. They asked pretty much typical questions like "talk about yourself", :what is your strength and week point", "how you can contribute to the company", etc. Then they asked me "what is most important thing in software project management?" since I was interviewed for software manager position at that time.
