    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at MathWorks.

    Interview

    The MathWorks' unique interview process--while successful at filtering applicants incompatible with position requirements--does so at the expense of eliminating some highly qualified candidates who choose not to navigate the excessively micromanaged hoops that must be jumped through.
