    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at MathWorks.

    Interview Details

    The first round is a pre recorded HR round for which all the questions are known - GPA, Visa status and questions about the position. Then the phone interview. The recruiter began with questions from the math section. These questions were unexpected. Lot of questions on AP, GP,probability and other concepts. None in matrices, linear algebra or calculus.(Forgot my formulae! :() I was disappointed. Then there were programming questions in C,C++ and JAVA . All were expected and are previously mentioned. I think I couldn't go forward because I didn't do well in the Math section.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions on Arithmetic Progressions, Geometric Progressions and probability was unexpected. I was expecting matrices,linear algebra or calculus.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at MathWorks.

    Interview Details

    HR Manager called after 3 weeks since I applied. Straight forward questions that are expected. Phone interview lasted about 45 minutes. There were no difficult or unexpected questions asked, but do prepare beforehand to ask and answer questions about the company, yourself, difficult situations and so on. Overall, very nice interviewer and easy interview. I was told they would call in 1-2 days to confirm an in person interview.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at MathWorks in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The 5 questions are listed in glassdoor. It looks like a little bit confusing for the questions "Why this position" and "What kind of your experience/background that fits this position", when one is under pressure... And the time for the 5 questions are limited, Max: 2 mins; Min: 1 min. Thus, there is no need to prepare too much thing to answer...
