Started off with the video interview as explained in previous posts. Was called back and set up a web interview. Questions were mostly the same as those detailed in other posts. Nothing was a surprise.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at MathWorks (Boston, MA) in July 2013.

    Interview

    There were two rounds that I faced. First was a phone interview about my resume and generic behavioral questions. It was a discussion with an HR person, so this went pretty smooth. The 2nd round was purely technical, again on phone. It was a 50 min session that had 4 parts in it. Math, General Programming Concepts, C language, Matlab and Signal Processing. The questions were slightly tough but not terribly hard to answer. Prepare for atleast 3,4 days in advance and you can nail it.

    Interview

    I dropped my resume at school's career fair. They contacted me after about two weeks and set up an phone interview. They let me choose 3 programming language that I'm most comfortable with and I chose C/C++ , Python and Java. The phone interview took about 1 hour and consist of all technical questions vary from basic math to the language details. There's no hard questions but the interviewer sounds like a recruiter without tech background. She failed to explain the detail of the question several times.

    A HR from MathWorks called me and asked the basic things about my background and asked a question like how do you handle conflict with your peers. Nothing special, they are seeking people have good academic record. A technical interview arranged then after.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MathWorks (Gainesville, FL) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Talked to recruiter in the career showcase and they called me to schedule another interview the following day. Situational questions are asked. Technical interview followed about 2 weeks later on campus. 2 hours to finish 4 areas that chosen ahead of time. Most questions can be found on glassdoor. Screwed up the control theory part. Nearly all recruiters are Indians.... Got a call from the HR a week later asked something about the resume and was told to wait for response. Rejected indicated online.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MathWorks (Natick, MA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online and got a call after 2+ weeks for the internship position as a Technical Support. The person who interviewed me was the EDG of the company. She asked me general question based on previous internship, working in a group, solving conflicts in a group, how would you deal with working on multiple projects? will you use any tools etc., how is the overall process of job search going on? And then she scheduled a Technical Phone Interview for which I am preparing. She also sent an email which read: The interview will take approximately 40 minutes and will cover: * Basic math (discrete math, algorithm theory, probability and Big Oh notation) * Programming concepts (understand syntax and how the program works) * Choice of two programming languages (C or C++) and (Java or MATLAB) – One object-oriented language is required (if C++, understand syntax and structure, compilation and OOP concepts) There will also be some non-technical questions discussed. Hope this helps and will post further comments after my phone interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MathWorks in February 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online, and get reply from an HR after 2-3 days. Hiring manager contacted me for some behavior questions, took for 40 min. Then it was after 3 days I heard from another HR asked to schedule an technical interview. I scheduled it 3 days after. Questions include signal processing, C, Maths and matlab. I think I did it OK as I answered 80% of the questions. But I was selected for an on-site. The bad news came 2 days later from the hiring manager without a reason.
