Graduate Project Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Adelaide

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Motorola Mobility in August 2011.

Interview Details It was a quick interview with one project manager of local office and one engineering manager of MS, AU.

Engineers are required to be hands-on and could get exposed to different area of networking and telecom: design, order, installation, maintenance, documentation.

The interview was pretty relaxed and conversational

Plantation, FL (US)

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Motorola Mobility in November 2010.

I have been doing quality assurance and there were several questions regarding actual situations that I had in my job experience.

Interview Question – Programming questions about java and python.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I had already experience in the field and I give a couple of calls to follow up. My best advice is the follow up after the interview.
