Desktop Support Interview

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

Interview Details – HR Manager called after 3 weeks since I applied. Straight forward questions that are expected. Phone interview lasted about 45 minutes. There were no difficult or unexpected questions asked, but do prepare beforehand to ask and answer questions about the company, yourself, difficult situations and so on. Overall, very nice interviewer and easy interview. I was told they would call in 1-2 days to confirm an in person interview.

Interview Question – No difficult or unexpected questions, just generally prepare beforehand.   Answer Question

Applications Support Engineer Interview

Applications Support Engineer

I applied online and 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...

Interview Question – there is no unexpected question..   Answer Question

Marketing Interview

Marketing

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

Interview Details – Two phone interviews (hiring manager, recruiter), and an on-site interview process which involved a 45 minute presentation to the team you would be potentially working for, along with meeting with each employee who viewed the presentation (45 minutes per employee). In my case, I had 7 interviews all together and the presentation.

Interview Question – While I still think they would be a great company to work for, I suggest they re-think their interview/hiring process. The idea of having each candidate give a presentation and then meet with everyone individually to help "Avoid repetition of standard questions during one-on-one interviews" certainly does not accomplish what they hope it would do.   Answer Question
