    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Motorola Solutions in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I got the offer to interview from a career fair organised by my school. The interview was scheduled immediately for the next day. There were two interviewers. One of them was the Director of Global procurement and the other was a Category Manager at the firm. The interview started with behavioral questions. Most of the questions were situation based and I tied in my prior experiences to each of those situations. The interviewers then moved to my skill sets and my weaknesses and how I can tie them to my job requirements.

    Senior Staff Mechanical Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Holtsville, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Motorola Solutions.

    Interview Details

    Started with a phone interview with the hiring manager. Then a formal interview consisting of meetings with multiple people within the hiring department including the head of the department. All of the interviewers asked good questions and appeared to be very knowledgeable. Unfortunately, after being given verbal confirmation that I would be receiving a job offer it never actually materialized. Phone calls, voice mails and emails have gone unanswered. Not sure what happened... everything sounded great.
