    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Motorola Solutions (Schaumburg, IL).

    Interview

    Manager reached out to me from his database pool as I had submitted a resume a couple of years earlier. I had 5 on-site interviews. They did not seem to have a standardized set of questions to ask. This was unprofessional, it seemed. I was surprised at the low level of difficulty of questions they would ask a candidate who had flown in from out of state spending an entire day at their facility. Perhaps this was because the skill set I was hired for was not their core skill.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Motorola Solutions (Schaumburg, IL) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview which only consisted of me talking about my resume and projects. There was no coding questions.

    The onsite interview consisted of speaking with 3 engineers and 1 hiring manager. Everybody was very friendly. Spent a lot of time with each engineer talking about my projects. There was some basic coding questions, object-oriented questions, multi-threading questions, etc. One of the engineers really liked me and I got an offer in less than 24 hours.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Motorola Solutions (Schaumburg, IL) in March 2013.

    Interview

    45 minute interview which included your standard behavioral questions. Team of engineers make fun of you during interview and set you up for opportunities to be disrespectful. You'll be hired or not based on one technical question: "have you ever built your own computer before?" All they want to know is if you have any experience with systems and software. They might ask if you have familiarity with various computer systems, windows, unix, linux... Don't bother even writing a thank you note, nobody in the whole company has business cards. If you have a reasonable GPA, and any experience with computers you'll probably get the job. They also want to know that you know what the responsibilities of the position you're applying for are.

    Reasons for Declining

    No job security everyone starts out at the same salary and the engineers there are rude.
