Very Easy Interview
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Motorola Solutions in April 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.
Interview Question – "have you ever built your own computer before?" View Answer
Reason for Declining – No job security everyone starts out at the same salary and the engineers there are rude.
