Senior Electrical Engineer Interview

Senior Electrical Engineer
Libertyville, IL

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Motorola Mobility in January 2013.

Interview Details – I was contacted by a HR personal regarding this position. The HR conducted a pre-screening followed by a phone interview with the hiring manager. I was called on site for a in-person interview. The interview consisted of an electronics quiz followed by talk with the hiring manager and the team. Overall, it was a good experience. The company is hiring and laying people off at the same time. So, there was a little bit of ambiguity (at the moment) while talking to most of the people during the interview.

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Libertyville, IL

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Motorola Mobility in November 2012.

Interview Details – One phone interview. Phone interview was largely technical, asked to answer some basic data structure/algorithm problems. Interviewing engineer seemed friendly, ended the interview with some non-technical questions. I thought the interview went fairly well, based on my answers to the questions. But I was called the next day, and told that I was not longer being considered for the position. Overall, not the best experience, not the worst.

Interview Question – Asked how to implement a binary search tree, with support for insert and delete operations.   View Answer

Information Systems Engineer Interview

Information Systems Engineer
Libertyville, IL

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Motorola Mobility in November 2010.

Interview Details – The interview process was sadly lacking any truly knowledgeable people. The whole interview process seemed to lack and standard process and the technical interview was handled by an individual that barely new what kind of questions to ask. They seemed more interested in what my degree was than what my experience or knowledge of the position I was interviewing for. A total joke!

Interview Question – All the questions were canned simple questions. Like tell me about yourself and what experience do you have in Systems Engineering.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They were not willing to negotiate on anything!
