    Senior Electrical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Libertyville, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Libertyville, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. 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.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Motorola Mobility.

    Interview Details

    All day interview starting with a portfolio presentation. Then a series of one-on-one interviews. Sandwiched in there is a technical exercise and a working lunch. Kind of grueling. They're not confrontive, but very focused. The whole process made you evaluate your professional experience. The facilities are new and bright and very google-esque. It seems like an exciting, challenging place to work. Everything is in flux with the Google takeover and people's roles are still evolving.
