Very Difficult Interview

Test Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee
Plantation, FL

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Motorola Mobility in November 2010.

Interview Details – The hiring process probably took around a month after the first interview. It was really to the point, I had experience already as a test Engineer and the questions were based in different situations in the SDLC.
I have been doing quality assurance and there were several questions regarding actual situations that I had in my job experience.

Interview Question – Programming questions about java and python.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I had already experience in the field and I give a couple of calls to follow up. My best advice is the follow up after the interview.

Senior Manager, Warranty and Operations Strategy Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Sunnyvale, CA

I applied through other source and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Motorola Mobility in September 2013.

Interview Details – Made initial contact through networking to hiring manager. I was phone screened by hiring manager. Fairly straight-forward questions, and no IQ tests or puzzles. Next, spoke to HR recruiter. Again, standard interview questions (why are you looking, and why now? why are you interested in this particular role?) This role requires having worked in a supply chain or operations capacity, knowing how to predict hardware failure rates and putting together a strategy to manage hardware, once it is in the field.

Interview Question – Unexpected question from HR recruiter: What's your current total compensation and base? Be prepared to give ranges for the job you are interested in. A bit surprised being asked about this topic, so early in the interview process.   Answer Question
