I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at MathWorks.
Interview Details – I applied online through the MathWorks website. Received an email in around two weeks for an online HR-based interview. The interview had the 5 basic questions given on Glassdoor. Shortly thereafter, I was scheduled for a technical interview. The technical interview had 29 questions from MATLAB, one additional programming language (I chose C), one area (I chose Control Systems), and Linear Algebra.
Interview Question – Some of the questions were:
- How's an LTI system stable?
- What are Eigenvalues
- Find stability of LTI system
- Find Eigenvalues
- Phase Margin?
- State Space formulation
- Observability, Controlability
- Rank of a matrix
- Control canonical form
- Lyapunov stability
- Find poles of a system
- What is Bode plot?
- Solve an ODE
- Diff b/w ODE and PDE
- Solve a limit involving indefinite terms (used L'ospital rule)
- Recursive function. Give example
- Difference between passing a pointer and a variable to a function?
- Null pointer?
- Diff b/w structure and unions?
- ptr ++
- Some simple for loop questions
- Defining path of folders
- Clearing and importing variables
- Making an array of numbers divisible by 3
- Concatenating strings
That's pretty much it. In total there were 32 questions. I got 27 of them right, and the remaining I either didn't answer or gave him the general idea since I could not recall it at the spur of the moment. From the other reviews, it seems there is not a lot of hope but; let's see. Fingers crossed. Hope this helps. Answer Question
Interviewed at MathWorks
Interview Details – All three interviews were on phone, pretty informal.
The questions were focused on my background and checked whether I fit the company and the position.
Interview Question – Defense market segmentation Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at MathWorks in November 2013.
Interview Details – Applied online and was asked to take a video interview with pre-recorded questions after about 5 days. Had not taken the video interview within 7 to 10 days and got an email for a phone interview appointment from a technical recruiter. The recruiter first introduced Mathworks, EDG, and the position of Application Support Engineer, then asked some common questions as everyone posted here like introduce yourself, why Mathworks, why EDG and Application Support Engineeer, and strengths and weaknesses. No comment or question on my response throughout the whole interview. I was asked if I had any question, and got nothing valuable from the recruiter. The entire interview took about 15 mins.
In fact it's my first interview, so I was a little nervous and was not so fluent with my response. I think I screwed it up and did not sell myself well.
Interview Question – Nothing unexpected, but I had to keep talking. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at MathWorks in December 2013.
Interview Details – I applied online and was contacted on the same day by the hiring manager and scheduled the interview for the following week.
The manager explained the requirements of the position and I was asked about my compiler related projects in depth. Lot of questions of project implementation.
As expected lot of C++ questions covering Object oriented programming, templates, Data structures and algorithms,etc
Interview Question – All questions were standard questions like finding a cycle in a directed graph, linked list implementation etc. Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at MathWorks.
Interview Details – I had two telephonic interviews. The first round was HR. I was asked questions mostly from my resume - the projects I have worked on, my short-term and long-term goals, why interested in MathWorks and so on. The second round was totally technical. It consisted of mainly two sessions - one session dedicated to control system and the other on programming skills. Questions from controls were related to PID controllers, state space equations, stability and unstability of systems, region of convergence, location of poles, damping coditions of second order systems, etc. The programming round had questions from MATLAB as well as C/C++. Some typical questions were - What is local scope and global scope? What is # include ? Difference between using # include <stdio.h> and "stdio.h"What is a recursion? Give an example? How does it terminate , How does the system handle recursion calls, What is a malloc function? What is the difference between malloc and other memory allocation functions in C?How do you preserve MATLAB settings across sessions? ,What is the difference between a script and a function? In terms of their workspace?,What does A' do? How do you take transpose of a matrix in MATLAB?What is the difference between * and .* ?How do you take inverse of a Matrix in MATLAB?
How do you think calculators give an answer to mathematical operations like SIN, COS?virtual constructors, destructors and polymorphism, What are mex functions?Where are global and persistent variables stored?Give 2 different ways to access an element in matrix. What command would you use to get 2 different axes on the same figure? What are cell arrays?Is matlab column specific or row specific? and many more. There were questions from linear algebra as well.
Interview Question – Many basic and question from MATLAB were there which I couldn' answer. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at MathWorks in February 2014.
Interview Details – I was scheduled a video interview after I submit my resume on their website. It was a personality interview and the five questions are available on glass doors. 10 days later I was scheduled a technique interview which will cover math, programming, Matlab, and one topic from DSP, control or embedded system. Let’s see what will happen.
I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at MathWorks in February 2014.
Interview Details – I applied online and the process took 7 weeks. Received an e-mail after 6 weeks for an HR-based interview. Then, I was scheduled for a technical phone interview. The technical interview had many questions from C/C++, MatLab and DSP. Some of them were challenging. It was hard to understand the interviewer over phone.
Interview Question – Questions were almost the same as in other posts. Nothing different. Answer Question
Interviewed at MathWorks
Interview Details – Applied through job fair. Had phone interview last week. Only behavioral. exact five qns (Y mathworks? visa status? QPA? y u fit in mathworks? explain ur proj as u will to a non-tech guy)
Interview Question – nothing Answer Question
Interviewed at MathWorks
Interview Details – Had HR interview on the phone..basic questions like why I should be hired and why the position interests me and about a situation in the past during which i faced multiple responsibilities

Interview Details – I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at MathWorks for 1st HR round. She asked me basic 5 questions which are similar to those on glassdoor, however some questions were asked in a different way. It was my first phone interview and I was a little nervous. However, although I thought I messed it up, I was told to have a second round technical interview on 3.11.
Interview Question – How do you deal with multitasks with your teammates?
