    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lowell, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lowell, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Motorola Mobility in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    this review applies to Motorola Mobility - a Motorola spin-off, which is somehow still in Motorola's corporate structure.
    After 1 phone screen was invited for an on-site interview with a group of engineers (4 total). Prior to the interview had to fill a long application form. Interviews were average, no difficult technical questions, very friendly. Took me around the place and labs. I was unimpressed with the work environment - small dark cubicles. I didn't feel excited about either the environment or the work they are doing. There was a little test they asked me to write. It was pretty easy, except for the ObjectiveC part, in which I didn't claim any knowledge.
    I rate this interview as a positive, as I liked all the people, the questions were relevant and to the point, and the attitude was friendly. I was not interested in pursuing this position, and, apparently, the feeling was mutual.

    Software Product Manager Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Motorola Mobility in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Initial contact with the hiring manager was via telephone. On-site interview took place with 3 interviews including the hiring manager, her director, and an associate. Interviews were informal and there were no in-depth technical questions asked. I felt very comfortable with the interview since I had previously worked for Motorola Mobility at the same location. Unfortunately, the hiring manager and her director were almost hostile in their attitude and questions. I left the facility with a sense that I would not be getting an offer...and would refuse one even if made.
