    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at MathWorks in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Scheduled the first phone interview within a couple of weeks with the recruiter. Basic behavioral questions, what was a challenge you overcome, what were the steps you took to overcome it, that kind of stuff. Scheduled a technical interview after that - the recruiter offered to give me a few extra weeks to prepare, which I took. Technical interview was over the phone as well, 100% knowledge-based questions, no coding or problem-solving. Lasted about 45 minutes.

    I applied online – interviewed at MathWorks in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online was given a technical phone interview. I felt that the interview wasn't too difficult, they sent out a email detailing what the interview would consists of data structures, automatia, discrete mathematics ect. so there wasn't any thing unexpected as everything was off of that list. In a interesting turn of events the interviewer said he would call in two weeks to say whether I moved on to the next stage of interviews but, I never received a call. I emailed my interviewer multiple times and never got a response.

    Interview Questions
    • Was asked if a specific equation was a tautology. And in other question was asked about a finite state machine.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at MathWorks in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied through employee referral and got an email for a technical phone interview. I didn't have an initial HR round. I was asked to submit a coding assignment prior to the interview(Java and C++). The interview lasted for almost an hour, with half of the time spend on going through the code and questions pertaining to it, which covered almost all the OOPs concepts. A few questions related to algorithms and time complexity were also asked. Previous work experience was also discussed. Almost all the questions were similar to the ones posted here.
