Intern Interview

Schaumburg, IL

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Motorola Mobility in October 2009.

Interview Details – The interview was more like an interrogation than anything. The interviewer definitely did not want to be there and he just acted like he was mad about something the whole time. Overall, it was very unprofessional on their part. I am sure not all their interviews go this way, but my experience was not a good one.

Billing Clerk Interview

Billing Clerk
Schaumburg, IL

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Motorola Mobility in April 2010.

Interview Details – A recruiter found my resume online and sent me an email regarding a Motorola position as a Billing Clerk.I responded and she called me back in 5 min. She asked me some questions and said she would like to submit my resume to the Motorola hiring manager. I said of course! 2 hours later she called me back to tell me the hiring manager wanted to have a phone interview the next day. We had that interview which couldn't have gone any better. The hiring manager said they had a computer ready but would have to get her decision cleared on Monday and have IT set me up with a password and login ID. I then tt my recruiter again and she said when she hears from Motorola , she will fed ex me paperwork to get started on drug screening and background check. we are in this process currentyl.

Interview Question – Explain exactly what skills I used in my daily interactions with customers , internal and external.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – My best advice to anyone job hunting is that when you talk to recruiters or potential employer, talk with a smile on your face . My customer service background taught me that and I get compliments on that all the time. You want to sound your happiest and enthusiastic on the phone as well as in person.
