    Interview

    Just a phone call with the manager; Overall just inquisitive, but nothing too intensive. Was just honest about what I knew and didn't know. I was interviewing for a software position, during covid though so I imagine the process has changed since.

    IS Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Motorola Solutions in August 2020.

    Interview

    Random email requesting an interview by another line manager. It was something I apparently applied to several weeks before and they could not or would not send me a job description. They called me 45 min. after the scheduled meeting...Interviewer was an offshore resource and difficult to understand. Did not listen well and immediately started firing off technical questions - no overview of the role, company, or any of the typical niceties. I don't think he had my resume in front of him either, as answers to 1/2 the questions were right on it. It was a complete waste of time and left me with a very bad taste for this company. So unprofessional. I still don't know what the role was I supposedly "interviewing" for...lol.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Motorola Solutions (Boston, MA) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Had an internal recruiter reach out to me a few weeks prior. It was a typical interviewing cycle. Passed the phone-screening with the hiring manager, and so forth. Came in for a F2F that was going to last a good chunk of the day.

    When I got there, there was no reception, but I rang the doorbell. It took a few seconds, but someone (younger), answered. He thought I had the wrong door, and thought I was a DELIVERY GUY. Gee, judgmental much, young hotshot? That's what I thought anyway, but I told him I was actually here to interview. My enthusiasm for the job took a bit of a plunge after that...first impressions, DO matter!

    As for the interview itself: nothing much to write home about. The senior staff talked about my experience, and such. Some were decidedly non-English speakers, and were very hard to understand, and they were asking me to explain some complicated SW concepts.

    One guy on their team decided he didn't like me, and proceeded to throw a nasty coding problem one might find on a Hackerrank challenge.

    In the end, was given the corporate brushoff notification, and that was it. They've since re-posted the job...no thanks!

    Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Motorola Solutions.

    Interview

    First, the positives. Everyone I spoke to (and there were many) was pleasant and professional. Interviews were relatively easy, both from a technical aspect and a managerial skills aspect. I honestly expected them to be much much tougher. The most difficult one turned out to be one where the interviewer had a bunch of canned interview questions, but no idea what questions to ask after getting my initial answer.

    Bu that’s where the positives end. This whole process lasted 5+ months. Phone interviews, face to face interviews, with what appeared to be headed toward a positive conclusion, and an offer. And then suddenly, for lack of a better word, I got “ghosted”. No more updates, no responses to any communication, and for over a month, left hanging, until finally getting the official auto-generated “thanks but no thanks” email. Had this been a 15 minute phone screen, and nothing further, I wouldn’t be so down on how everything was handled, but considering how this was far beyond that, some acknowledgment beyond an auto-generated message isn’t too much to ask. Sad thing is, as the last month went by, and the communication suddenly stopped, it took me from being incredibly excited about the opportunity, to really questioning if I would accept the job if it was offered.

    Overall, I definitely expected a bit more out of a company with the kind of history and reputation that defines Motorola.
