Applications Support Engineer Interview

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.

Questions such as tells me more about you, why you like Mathworks, why this position, your future aspiration, the understanding of the position, the GPA and the academic background, describe an occasion when things did not go according to plan, are you legal to work in the US. They are all basic. Nothing heard now.

    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...
