    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Motorola Solutions (Schaumburg, IL) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very streamlined. I first completed a phone interview with HR, then an hour phone interview with a hiring manager who covered high level technical questions. After being brought onsite, had an hour and a half technical interview. The interviewers mostly asked questions about previous class projects and experience and asked me to explain the circuit operation.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Motorola Solutions (Chicago, IL).

    Senior Treasury Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Motorola Solutions (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I was working with a recruiter who asked if I would be willing to consider the position at MSI and I agreed. The recruiter forwarded my resume and we scheduled a phone interview the following day. The phone interview went well and they called me back within 30 minutes to schedule an onsite interview with the Director of Treasury and the Global Liquidity Manager. After my first onsite interview I was asked to come back for another meeting with the Treasurer and the Assistant Treasurer. The recruiter then notified me that MSI would like to extend an offer and asked for clarification around my current comp details. I provided my details and asked for the timeline for follow up. Rather than coming back with an offer, MSI came back requesting another phone interview with the person who held the role previously. I did not hear anything back for another 3 weeks, at which point I was notified that MSI decided to go with another candidate.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Motorola Solutions (North Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Got a call for a phone interview which was very casual, mostly asked questions about classes I've taken, languages I worked with etc. Then got a call for an on-site, which consisted of interviews with 4 different people on the team, followed by a short concluding one with the team lead. Overall not bad, they asked questions about projects I've worked on, my experience with other technologies, and some technical questions about data structures/object-oriented programming. Didn't hear back for 2 weeks so I contacted the recruiter, turns out I was rejected.

    Software Engineer On Consoles Team Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Schaumburg, IL
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Motorola Solutions (Schaumburg, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through my university's job board, I got an email from an engineer about a week later. A couple of weeks after that I had a phone interview with another software engineer. It seemed like it was mostly for them to describe what the role was about and they asked me some very basic programming questions like what are the differences between a linked list and an array. After that they asked if I was still interested and when I would be able to do an on-site interview. The on-site consisted of 2 technical interviews, a lunch break, and a management interview which was a mostly an HR style one. The technical interviews were pretty easy but they asked a lot about formal software development techniques that I wasn't really familiar with so I think that's what I did wrong.

This interview was more or less the same structure as the phone interview, with behavioral questions about my background and interests. There was no technical questions asked. The interviewers were friendly and the overall process was easy and straightforward. About 3 weeks later I got an email saying they would no longer pursue me as a candidate.
