Interviewed at Motorola Solutions
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 Question – 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

Interview Details – I sensed that the company was in the process of imploding, and that the interviewer was not himself secure in his position. The company has lost so many people that the one's left are shell-shocked. This is not a healthy situation.

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.

Very Easy Interview
I applied through a recruiter and 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.
