I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at MathWorks in May 2014.

Interview Details – Step 1 : A phone screening, it includes all basic HR questions that others have posted as well.
Step 2 : A technical phone interview, that included basic math, OS and 3 languages of your choice (I chose C, C++ and Java).
Step 3 : An onsite Technical interview, lasted for about an hour. The interviewer was very friendly and asked similar questions as they asked in the telephonic interview.
Step 4 : 2 HR rounds in the end, 1 hour each. They ask very basic questions, so if you know your projects and the complications they had, you are good to go.

Interview Question – There were no difficult questions, but you need to be thorough in your answers.   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at MathWorks in May 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online through their website and got an E-mail for a HR interview after a few days. It was a video interview and I could take it anytime in the next couple of weeks.
The interview was recorded and they asked me five questions. I was given 20 seconds to prepare my answer and 2 minutes to record it immediately after that.
Questions:
Why do you want to be a part of the EDG program?
What qualities and skills make you perfect for the job?
Give an example of a time you had work on multiple projects and how did you approach it?
What is your cumulative GPA?
F-1 opt start date and work authorization in USA?

I got a mail couple of days later for the next phone interview. I am waiting for the result of that one.

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at MathWorks.

Interview Details – Submitted my resume online and got an email two days later scheduling the first (HR) interview. The HR interview questions were pretty much the same as the ones described in Glassdoor (5 behavioral questions). Then they set me up for a technical interview which was pretty detailed. You can find 85% of the questions in Glassdoor. Def. expect new questions though. My understanding from the whole process was that you can get the job ONLY if you are "very" good at control or embedded systems. This means you really needed to have accomplished number of projects related to these subjects. And this is because the competition is pretty intense as MathWorks is a very good company.

Interview Question – A question about designing a closed-loop controller   Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at MathWorks in May 2014.

Interview Details – First got a video interview invitation, and everthing was mentioned here.
  Then after a week there was a technical phone interview, and as far as I can remember, all questions were repeated and I think I had all right answers. Two days later I found my status became "match not ideal at this time".
  Everything was so templated. The phone call was 20 minutes late than scheduled and the guy sounded not patient and got the wrong topic for me(I chose signal and he gave me control, which appeared to be he wasn't paying attention at all). And of course, don't try to get any feedback, you would only get a templated thank you letter after you were rejected. Anyway, the compensation wasn't that good.
