    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Motorola Mobility in February 2016.

    Interview

    Thought it should be a HR interview but it was actually a tech interview. Ask lots of tech questions about circuit design and computer systems. It is kind of difficult.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Motorola Mobility (Chicago, IL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    After a initial coding test, I had two back to back technical video interviews. The interviewers weren't very sure of what they wanted and made the experience quite stressful. The second round was especially vague and I wasn't sure what they meant. Example - Create a program that must perform an initialization sequence. And I was supposed to code this.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Motorola Mobility (Pittsburgh, PA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Straight forward, had an in person interview, followed by a phone screen with a recruiter, and then two back to back conversations with the design team. There was a long waiting period in between my initial interview and the follow up with a recruiter, but after I heard back the rest of the process only took about a week.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Motorola Mobility.

    Interview

    They asked different kinds of questions. They asked programming questions. They gave a problem. They asked to develop an algorithm for the problem. After that they asked to code the algorithm in any language. They also asked a different problem. This problem was from a different area. It seems they don't care if an interviewer has worked in a particular area or not. They just asked questions from an area which they know.
