    Systems Technologist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Westminster, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Westminster, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Motorola Solutions.

    Interview Details

    Applied for the position online and received a phone call from HR to conduct a phone interview within a month of applying. Phone interview consisted of talking with the hiring manager and reviewing my past work history, interests and knowledge from a high level. On-site interview was with two hiring managers: one for the position that I applied for, and one for a position that has similar qualifications. The questions here were pretty straightforward and was primarily a deeper conversation about my past work history in the relevant areas. The interview was pleasant, but one of the hiring managers was an extraordinarily strong personality - almost arrogant - and was certainly a turn-off for me. Additionally, they had not paid attention to my salary requirements in the application, which were 20-30% above what they were offering, and they seemed appalled when I answered their question regarding salary with the same number that I had placed into my application. Overall, it was a waste of my time because of this, and the interview was pretty much over after that question.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Motorola Solutions.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was very casual at first and the included a formal interview process afterwards. There were also introductions to the engineering team, which probably was testing how much of a match a candidate was. With this position, they tested more for analytical skills, communication/personality skills, and if your interest was in RF at all. Also, make sure that you know that Motorola Solutions does not make phones anymore!! That is Motorola Mobility and it will help that they won't have to explain that.

    Accounting Temp Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McAllen, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McAllen, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Motorola Solutions in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed for the location in McAllen, TX. I was interviewed by two people separately the same day. The location and office seemed very professional with security clearances but I was surprised by the two people interviewing me. I showed up wearing a suit and I was expecting to see my interviewers wearing business professional or business casual instead one was wearing casual (black jeans and short sleeve button up shirt) and the other looked like he was going to a night club. Both seemed to have learned English as a second language and one was confirmed by himself to have recently come from the plant in Reynosa, Mexico.

    I found it highly troubling that the 1st person interviewing me, who was supposed to be in charge of the cost accounting department, did not know the difference between a periodic or perpetual inventory system and asked me to explain to him the difference between the two when I had inquired what system the company used...which is BASIC accounting theory.

    I was notified by the recruiter a day or two after the interview that my interviewers had reached a decision and told him something along the lines of 'although (I) was a greatly qualified candidate, unfortunately they had found someone else' .
