    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Motorola Mobility in November 2010.

    The interview process was sadly lacking any truly knowledgeable people. The whole interview process seemed to lack and standard process and the technical interview was handled by an individual that barely new what kind of questions to ask. They seemed more interested in what my degree was than what my experience or knowledge of the position I was interviewing for. A total joke!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Motorola Mobility in September 2010.

    I was initially contacted by the hiring manager via email to set up a telephone interview. The initial telephone interview was about 45 minutes. Subsequently I had a round of telephone interviews which included the hring managers supervisor and 3 colleague level professionals.
    The final piece was a second discussion/interviw with the hirng manager and then an offer followed.
    The odd and unique part was I never actually met anyone in person, as everyone I interviewed with were remote to my location.
