    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Motorola Solutions (Chicago, IL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call from HR recruiter within hours of submittal. The recruiter was calling on behalf of the hiring manager who wanted to schedule a phone interview ASAP. The recruiter was very enthusiastic and quick to respond, thorough in providing details of the job and expectations (noted that MSI was moving to downtown Chicago and the position would be based there). The phone interview w/the hiring manager was less than impressive; first, he didn't have a copy of my resume so it's doubtful he knew anything about my background or why he was talking to me. Secondly, his description of the job had a completely different emphasis than what the recruiter described which is also what was published online. The interview was short, not productive and ended with the hiring manager just saying: "Okay, well, let's stay in touch..." I was skeptical about MSI prior to be called and the experience told me that that skepticism was borne out in the process. MSI is no longer the company it was. It's a shell that's focused on EBITDA and nothing more.

    Project Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Motorola Solutions (Schaumburg, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Applied for the position online and about five days later received a phone call to set up a phone interview for later that day. The gentleman called back with 3 other people in the room so it was a group panel phone interview. The interview lasted about an hour and consisted of each person asking questions about my resume and my project management experience. The questions were easy to answer and one interviewer even stated that there was no question that I have "this project management thing down". I asked questions about what a resource would need to know and do to succeed in the role and the main guy fumbled over his answer and basically just read the job description back to me. I asked if all candidates would be contacted whether they got the job or not and he told me yes, however I have not heard anything in weeks so I am guessing I won't be moving on to the next step in the interview process.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Motorola Solutions (Schaumburg, IL) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I submitted a resume for the position online. An internally recruiter contacted me a few days later for an in person interview in Schaumburg, IL. The recruiter mistakenly thought that someone had pre-screened me which no one did. I requested a phone screen instead of going directly in for an in person to ensure it was the right position. Had the phone screen with the hiring manager. All seemed ok. Contacted by the same internal recruiter for the in person. Internal recruiter setup the face to face with hiring manager and a few peers. I arrived for my interview and recruiter gave me the wrong door number. Left message for recruiter who did not call back minutes before the interview. Met with hiring manager who was very professional. Seemed like a genuinely good person who went through the Motorola Solution organization setup. After meeting with him I met with 2 of his peers which went ok. More of conversation as opposed to Q & A. Met back with the hiring manager for another 30min. Left the interview and was told they would look to make a decision within the week. I contacted the recruiter that Friday just to see if they were still looking to make a decision same week. Again the internal recruiter could not contact me back which was very unprofessional of the recruiter. It is 2 weeks since the interview and the recruiter could not even as a professional close me out if I was not chosen as a candidate. Motorola Internal Recruiting needs to be trained on how to handle potential candidates are presented offer and if not how to professionally close them out.
