Senior Systems Engineer Interview

Senior Systems Engineer
Los Angeles, CA

I applied through other source and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Motorola Solutions.

Interview Details – Responded to advert in LA Times. Received call about 2 weeks later. Did a panel interview with 3 persons. Had an offer back in a week. Negotiated start date and bonus/salary.. Went to Chicago for orientation for a half week. Returned to LA and started work.

Interview Question – Nothing really that difficult or unexpected. Drilled a little bit about technical experience.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – One iteration of negotiation. I ended up with bonus in lieu of some salary for first year. But that was OK because I wanted to join the company.

Procurement Intern Interview

Procurement Intern

I applied through college or university and 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.

Interview Question – How will you work on your weaknesses before joining the company?   Answer Question

Difficult Interview

Senior Staff Mechanical Engineer Interview

Senior Staff Mechanical Engineer
Holtsville, NY

I applied through an employee referral and 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.

Interview Question – Questions on how I would approach a problem that they have already solved in the past.   Answer Question
