    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Motorola Solutions in April 2017.

    Interview

    Great Human Resources team, precise and prompt.
    However, the next stage comes (came?) with challenges. A telephonic interview. The hiring manager in Chicago called late, the first red flag, and then presented with a curt, strange and strong accent, with poor spoken and communication skills, the questions were not clear, so I ended up repeating, paraphrasing his questions which was an odd challenge. A 30-minute discussion ended up in an hour. The next panel conversation was much better.
    All interviewees must realize Motorola is terribly slow, and runs with an enormous red-tape, so be ready to get gray by the time you come to the acceptance.

    Interview Questions

    • Prior projects, What will you do in the new org. Basic, ungrasped Project Management questions.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Motorola Solutions (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through college career fair. Had a phone screen where they asked basic behavioral questions about my background and interests. Then a week later, I had a video interview through google hangouts with a few of the engineers at the company. 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.

    Systems Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Motorola Solutions (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Process was very organized and quick. Talk about what they are currently doing and try to explain how you would be a good fit. The interview process is very laid back. 1st interview was a behavioral interview, the second interview will be at one of the three locations ( a little more behavioral not really techy, but still know your stuff just in case)

    If you are a college student do not freak out, they are aware that you are graduating college and do not know everything. Just be sure to show how willing you are to learn more about the company and will do a good job.

    Associate Customer Service Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Motorola Solutions (Denver, CO) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Hr called and asked questions about my background and gave a brief description of the job.
    I was left hanging for 4+ weeks, being told the hiring manager hasn't responded about the next step of a in person interview. Hr didn't answer emails at all, there is no voicemail to leave messages, so good luck with catching her actually answering the phone. She promised phone calls back with updates and never followed through. I guess your not supposed to expect any kind of communication after your initial phone screen, weird!
