    Algorithm Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Holtsville, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Holtsville, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Motorola Solutions in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    The position listing was for a machine learning/computer vision type engineer. The interviewer talked about the company, himself and what I would do in the role. The company has taken a bit of a tumble in the past but I didn't mind interviewing because I didn't have a job in hand yet. I did well on the technical interview but they closed the position due to funding difficulties a month later.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Motorola Solutions.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Details

    I was called by the parties in charge of the project. I spoke with each of them for approximately 45 minutes. The project was for a proprietary system. i am not at liberty to say more than that. they asked for examples and references, which I provided. We discussed salary, project deadlines, other virtual contributors, when and where i would be provided with the materials i would need to review to complete the project. The project was completed ahead of schedule and they were very pleased with the result.

    Interview Questions
    • Why I insist on working on a virtual basis only.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Very simple, I told them what I expected and they paid it. I include the following sentences in all my cover letters:

    "I work strictly on a contract/freelance basis. Clients are invoiced for work performed. Payment is due upon receipt."

    Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    Very comprehensive interview process cycling through multiple interviewers in equal time increments. Staff is extremely knowledgeable but very approachable and easy to talk to. Questions asked were straightforward with good answers being accepted at face value. Although a lengthy and intense process, interviewees will have a good idea of their performance and eligibility when walking out the door at the end of the day.

    Interview Questions
    • Problem solving questions using actual road blocks experienced by interviewers. Try to arrive at the same solutions they did in a fraction of the time. If you enjoy a challenge and like testing yourself like I do, these questions prove to be very fun and encouraging when answered correctly.   Answer Question

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Motorola Solutions.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position online and it led to the hiring manager writing me an email asking when we could talk. He called and we had a very casual phone interview where he asked about my resume and some experience. A week or two later I was emailed about going up and doing an in person interview. They flew me out, paid for everything and the interview was extremely laid back. Questions weren't technical at all, more personal which was surprising. A week after the in person interview I was contacted one last time where it was implied I had gotten the position. Sent offer over and I accepted.
