    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at MathWorks in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    First round : Video round with 5 standard questions.

    Second round : Technical telephonic for about 1 hour. C, basic programming, Math and Signal processing. All the questions were posted here already. Prepare everything mentioned here, do not leave even a single one. The interviewer doesn't say if your answer is right or wrong. They just move on to next question.

    I have answered 100% correct. But after 5 days, the online status got updated to "match not ideal this time" !!! So not sure what they are looking for.

    Applications Support Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at MathWorks in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I spoke with a recruiter at a university career fair, entered my name in the accompanying laptop, and was contacted a few days later. The phone screening interview was set up for a week or two later, and the technical phone interview happened about 3 weeks after that.

    The screening interview was not too bad; it mostly seemed designed to make sure that I could speak intelligently about what I had put on my resume and that I had some genuine interest in and knowledge of the company.

    The technical interview was almost exactly as expected from all the reviews on here, though I recommend browsing through at least a hundred of these if you want to cover all the questions. The interviewer's accent occasionally made it difficult to pick up on keywords (mutex...) but she was willing to spell things out if I asked nicely. The questions were not very surprising based on the reviewing I had done (based on questions posted here)--the exception were a couple of coding questions where she read aloud some C code and asked what it would print.

    One comment the interviewer had was that if we did not make it to the Webex portion of the interview, it was only a matter of time and had nothing to do with how well I was doing. (I did not get to do the Webex portion.)

    Still waiting a week after the technical interview to find out if I made it to the next phase--they said they would get back within two weeks.
