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.

    Interview

    Very relaxed interview in a stress free environment. The person interviewing me was very pleasant to talked to and made the my experience much better than anticipated. They asked me to tell them about myself and then proceeded with a few technical questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Motorola Solutions in November 2015.

    Interview

    Technical lead gave me an interview with zero technical questions which I thought was weird. He talked about what his team was working on and asked me about my resume and experience, and what I was interested in working on. It seemed a good fit. He told me he would let me know an answer that week (within 4 days). Then he went off the grid for over 3 weeks, even after I followed up after 1 week (3 days after he told me he'd let me know an answer). Then randomly I'm contacted saying they've closed their search for summer interns. Seemed very unorganized and the vetting process seemed weak. Would not recommend.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Motorola Solutions (Plantation, FL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted my application online and got a email request to speak with me over the phone. We weren't able to rearrange the time because of tight schedules, but finally had the phone interview (the interviewer was maybe 1 hour late in calling me). Thought it went decently, but I haven't heard back from them since, and the interviewer doesn't respond to emails. Overall, good experience in seeing what kind of technical questions they would ask but horrible interviewer/interviewee communication on the part of the interviewer.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Motorola Solutions in January 2015.

    Interview

    I had an informal interview out of campus. I have a very bad impression of this company when the manager told me that he doesn't understand what is work life balance. "Work is life: life is about work", that's what he said. Oh my Gosh! It's scary to know that there are still managers like that in 2015
