    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MathWorks (Worcester, MA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    There are generally three rounds. First is an HR interview through email, then a coding challenge through hackerang and lastly, an on-site interview. I cleared the first interview. Messed up the coding challenge though it was simple. The good news is you can re-apply within a month. Hopefully this time I'll clear the coding challenge. The application was for an internship position.

      What is your GPA?
      What is your US work status?

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MathWorks (Natick, MA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I've gone through HR screening (very simple questions about my current situation, visa status, how do you manage your time, how do you overcome a difficulty...) and Hackerrank coding challenge (Math, and I chose Matlab and Java). Now I'm waiting for the technical phone interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Java coding: implementing an interface, and another easy coding problem dealing with strings (like reverse char in a string...)   Answer Question
    • Math: you need more logical thinking than technical math knowledge. example question was: It takes respectively 4, 7 and 13 days (don't remember the exact numbers) for Matt, Alicia and John to build a car. If they all work together and build a car that costs $15000, how much money can be attributed to Alicia's work?   Answer Question
