    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MathWorks (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I decided to withdraw my application after reading all the stories on Glassdoor about the requirements of the 2nd and 3rd interview stages. I was very confident during the phone screening, but based on the posted interview questions and topics, it seems that I would have had to intensely study topics I learned in classes 6 years ago.

    For a program that claims to emphasize development of tech skills, this interview process has what I think is an inappropriate focus on mastery of specific tech skills and deemphasis on leadership skills.
