    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schaumburg, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Motorola Solutions in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    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 Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Motorola Solutions.

    Interview Details

    The interview process I had at Motorola Solutions was a somewhat strange experience. It was one of those interviews where all conversations went delightfully, the fit seemed to be relatively good----then I never heard back from them, despite multiple follow-ups. Not personable.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked in a few different ways "how I'd work with extremely difficult personalities", in such a way that I realized there must have been some intense cultural issues with some middle managers that I would have to work with. It was unexpected that several people who interviewed me asked me the same question.   Answer Question

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Schaumburg, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schaumburg, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Motorola Solutions in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    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.
