    Marketing Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Motorola Mobility (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    The interview process was very unorganized. The recruiter set me up with the interview but disappeared, so I was unable to follow up with him. Another recruiter set me up with a face to face to meet with 3 managers. Upon arriving, I found out that emergencies came up with 2 of the managers, another manager had to be found for the interview. I guess I was not on the schedule. We did a Skype with another manager but I could not see her. I could have just spoke to her by phone. All appeared not interested in interviewing!

    I followed up and got a call back from a new recruiter that I was still under consideration for the position but later never heard back from anyone. To this date, after a couple of months, I have not received any final feedback on whether I am still under consideration or if the position has been filled. It would have been nice to receive a call or email, instead of being left hanging after investing a lot of time in the interview process with this company.

    Intern Interview

    Interview

    By far the worst interview I have done. The HR was great, reached out to me and set up everything nicely. The hiring manager at the day of the interview was late to the virtual interview about 20 mins. He was at home dressed in a regular shirt, had absolutely no knowledge of my background (I doubt he even looked at my resume ahead). & Started off with telling me my background was not what they are looking for after I introduced myself...... Why would you list you are looking for someone with engineering background if you are not? He also don't have an clear idea what interns will be doing, and not even a good idea on some of the description he wrote. The whole time he was rude and put a lot of comments that are not very nice. I have experienced a lot of interviews & had three previous internships when I'm in college, so I think my fustration is relatively reasonable.

    I don't know what other people's experience is with the interview, but good luck to you!

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Motorola Mobility in February 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview, then follow-up phone interview and went on to have two on-site interviews - one with several members of the team and one with the person I would be answering to directly. Overall the interviews were pretty standard.

    Researcher Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Motorola Mobility (Chicago, IL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process is like another piece of data, and I believe it's a glimpse into how a company runs and what it will be like to work there.

    First you have a phone interview with the HR manager, and then a phone interview with the hiring manager, and if that goes well, they ask you to come in for a in-person portfolio review with the team (6 people) + 4 additional 1:1 interviews.

    Afterwards, I never heard back from anyone, even after I emailed a follow-up - which is frustrating after you spend personal and working time to prepare and interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Motorola Mobility (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    They did not reimburse me for traveling 150 miles to the nearest airport. I had to repeatedly explain to their representative the location of the nearest airport to my location. They were clearly more interested in hiring someone who was a good talker, than they were interested in someone with good engineering skills.
