    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Motorola Mobility.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me a month or so before graduation. There was a video chat interview where there was one goggle doc based programming question to find out different permutations of a give string. Then after that there was one more phone interview which consisted of a bunch of oral technical questions, no coding involved. Then they flew me out to their HQ in chicago where I went through 4 rounds of technical interviews. I aced almost all of them except for one where I faltered. After a couple of days the recruiter called saying that I did very well but they would rather hire a phD grad.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Motorola Mobility (Horsham, PA) in March 2009.

    Interview

    Interview was re-scheduled twice. Second time because the HR person forgot to actually schedule it. HR people seem to not care. Interviewed with 3 people for a total of about 2 hours. Only one person asked technical questions. No questions were asked regarding my desired salary, start date, etc. People were somewhat friendly. Dress code is casual, many people wear jeans. Managers have offices, other people have cubicles.

    Interview Questions

    • One person asked about details of a project from 12 years ago (I worked on at least 10 projects since then).   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Motorola Mobility (Libertyville, IL) in November 2012.

    Interview

    One phone interview. Phone interview was largely technical, asked to answer some basic data structure/algorithm problems. Interviewing engineer seemed friendly, ended the interview with some non-technical questions. I thought the interview went fairly well, based on my answers to the questions. But I was called the next day, and told that I was not longer being considered for the position. Overall, not the best experience, not the worst.
