    Engineering Interview

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

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Motorola Mobility in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed for a completely different position than the one I was offered.
    The personnel I spoke with had nothing to do with the position I was eventually offered.
    Company had everything online, only the online forms only worked with a 5 year old version of Windows Internet Exlorer. That should have warned me right then and there to run away, but foolishly I stuck it out.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Motorola Mobility in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied it online. Entry level position. Phone-interview is scheduled after 2 weeks of application. It's pretty easy, just describe some experience related to that job. Onsite interview is set after 2 weeks of phone screen. Nice travel, nice hotel and also nice interviewers. People are so kind and direct you to answer the questions. There are some quiz but pretty easy. Totally 9 people's one to one interview and no presentation or panel interview. Get notified by HR a couple of days later and I accept it.

    Software Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Libertyville, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Libertyville, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed 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.
