    Senior Manager, Warranty and Operations Strategy Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sunnyvale, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 daysinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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

    Product Quality Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Motorola Mobility in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    There were multiple steps in the hiring process, starting out w/ an interview from HR and then a call from the manager that I would be working for. It was my impression that there would be at least two other interviews before I would be flown out. The HR interview went well and she seemed pretty nice and just asked high level questions like compensation requirement and if I was willing to relocate. The manager interview was more focused on skills.

    Interview Questions
    • Motorola obviously deals with large quantity of products when then produce something so the question I received inquired why I thought I could bring my small production skills to a large production product.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Very technical interview process with 5 different individual technical interviews. Each interview covered different technical aspects related to the job. Initial meeting was with an HR representative. The set of interviews lasted the whole day with a break in between to walk through the site and see the cubicle setup. Met with HR representative at the end and he covered the next steps.

    Interview Questions
