Interview Details

First round of interviews, got call through employee reference. Recruiter mailed me after about 10 days with a link to complete a video based HR interview. There were 5 pre-recorded questions. Pretty standard questions like, 1) What makes you a good fit for this role? 2) What are the relevant skills that you have that apply directly to this role? 2) What previous experience do you have for this role ? 3) Tell us how handled a situation where you had multiple responsibilities/difficult situations? 4) Work authorization etc.
Got a call for technical interview, waiting on that.

Interview Questions
  • Standard HR questions, nothing unexpected. Answers have to be short (~2 mins) and you only get one try. So its better record yourself once by using the practice set.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Submitted my resume at my university's career fair and was contacted by an HR rep within a week to schedule a short 15-20 minute phone call. Same questions asked as seen in other reviews. At the end of the phone call, scheduled a technical phone interview for the next day. The technical interview was 30 mins and questions were asked about my OOP language of choice (java) and control systems. Was told that part of the interview would involve going through my resume but it was basically 30 minutes of being drilled technical questions. Heard back 3 days later to set up another phone call, waiting on that.

    The first interview was just a standard HR phone interview. Why MathWorks? Why this position? Tell us about one of the projects on your resume, etc. They also ask about GPA and work status.

    They scheduled at technical phone interview at the end of the call.

    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
