I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Motorola Mobility (Denver, CO) in August 2013.
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.

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.
- To show how you would workout a series of problems related to technical subject matter being discussed. It was definitely a rigorous pen and paper Q&A session. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Motorola Mobility (Libertyville, IL) in April 2013.
Applied online, took around one month to got contact by the HR. The HR claimed Motorola is Google now, and forced all the candidates to reveal the current salaries. HR said that's Google policy, I need to confirm with people who work in Google if this is true.

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Motorola Mobility (Marlborough, MA).
This job was for a co-op at the undergraduate level. Interviewed for about 30 minutes. Was asked about current knowledge of C/C++, linked lists, arrays... Implement a small program that involved manipulating an array of integers. I was basically tested on my proficiency in C programming
- Did not really have a difficult question. Just show how proficient you are in C Answer Question
Did not need to negotiate. Offer was pretty decent and I was satisfied
- Accepted Offer
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Motorola Mobility.
The interview process took FOREVER and I interviewed with no less than 15 people, some of whom I would never work with or around. The recruiter tried to convince me to take a lower base salary due to the bonus (which was taken away that year). It seemed like the hiring manager had little choice about the candidate - their manager was the actual decision maker.
- Tell me about a time that you failed. Answer Question
