    Interview Details

    It was a phone interview. Done with the first round with general questions, which are mostly available in glassdoor. My suggestion- Talk more about the things that are relavant to your background.Before they ask you try to tell them that you are passionate to work for them. Explain them the way you can deal with concepts. If you have work ex mention that in your talk. In total, it is an easy one.

    Interview Questions
    • How do you organize time? Do you use any tool to do that? Explain any of your projects such that a non technical person can understand? Have you ever faced conflicts in a team and how did you resolve it?   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at MathWorks.

    Interview Details

    I applied through my university's career website and got an email in less than a week requesting me to schedule a phone interview.

    The interview was pretty easy (all behavioral questions and no technical content) and the questions that were asked were as follows (as far as I remember):

    1) Why did you apply for this position?
    2) What is your cumulative GPA?
    3) Are you authorized to work without restrictions in the United States?
    4) Have you ever faced a conflict while working in a team? How did you handle it?
    5) How would you manage yourself if you were faced with multiple tasks?

    At the end, I was asked to schedule a time for the second round of interview which would be strictly technical and would involve a 1 hour session with a senior member or someone like that.

    Overall, I must say it was a very positive experience and the recruiting manager was very polite and both professional and friendly in her conduct!
