My Interview was a short chat with my hiring manager before chatting with the head of HR. The hiring manager asked me a few of the standard "why did you want to work here", "what will you bring to the team" style questions before we got talking about the tech related to the role I was applying for. I left feeling like I'd just been talking shop with a lecturer or friend from University before the head of HR entered the room and we went on to discuss where I was at in university and where I hoped to take my career. I followed up the interview a month later with an email to find out whether my application was successful and a week later I was told I had the job. Others have told me of similar experiences with their interview taking place over a coffee/lunch break at a local cafe and them meeting the team they would work with to assess whether they would fit in. Your interview experience will probably vary dependant on where in the company you are being hired and who conducts the interview.
What tips or advice would you give to someone interviewing at Motorola Solutions?
Know what you are likely to be doing as part of the job you are interviewing for and be prepared to provide examples of why you believe you'd be good at those tasks. In my experience, my hiring manager valued aptitude for what the company was looking to deliver and their core technologies over that of academic prowess. it may be helpful to know a bit about the history of the company, most importantly don't confuse Motorola Solutions with Motorola Mobility, they are separate companies.
Does Motorola Solutions require a background check? What kind of background check does Motorola Solutions do?
Not all roles will require a police check but expect your hiring manager to do some of the standard background checks of their own. Some roles will require police checks performed by the police agency of your state of employment that check for any criminal history within Australia. additionally, on top of this, some roles may require a national security clearance or vetting by Interpol dependant on your area of work.
