    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at MathWorks.

    Interview

    Talked to the company representatives at an on-campus career fair and left both a resume and my information on their laptop. Was contacted a week or two later about participating in one of their "College Days" where they fly you out to their location in Natick, PA.

    The interview process consists of a technical interview (1.5-2 hours), a manager interview (1 hour) and an HR interview (1 hour).

    The technical interview can be a bit rough. Some of the things they ask are so basic that you might not have done them for a while. Makes you feel a bit silly that you would struggle with such a simple problem, but just try to relax and work through it.

    Unfortunately, the lady that was interviewing me didn't give me any sort of feedback into any of my answers (right or wrong). There was just a pause at the end of my explanations, blank look, and then we moved on.

    The manager interview is basically them trying to find out what kind of person you are. The manager I interviewed with was awesome and overall the conversation was very interesting painless.

    The HR interview is a bit like the manager interview, but they spend about half of that time telling you about MathWorks (company policies, medical coverage, etc.).

    Overall, they seem like a very interesting company to work with, the employees I spoke with seemed happy there, and things didn't look or feel scripted.

    You will know within a week if they are interested in you. At that point, they will contact your references and conduct a background check on you. This is where I'm at right now.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MathWorks (Natick, MA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Interview entailed basic questions about background, interests and GPA. Also, you need to be an American person in order to qualify for the position (U.S. Citizen or Green Card holder). Part one of the interview was ok. If I had gotten to part two, it would have been basic questions about C/C++.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at MathWorks in February 2015.

    Interview

    20 minutes, after setting up the mic and video, there is a practice set also, fairly simple, be careful on the instructions displayed.HR Interview is fairly straightforward, you are given 2 minutes to reply on the video call, 20 seconds thinking time as well. I'm still waiting for the results because I'm on F1 visa and I dont know if they take internationals!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at MathWorks in March 2015.

    Interview

    First round is the video interview. Answer the basic questions already present here on Glassdoor. So not an issue, just practice once.
    Second round was technical phone call, 1 hour, with web-ex collab. Mostly basics are asked but they need >95% accuracy so not easy. Problem is control systems/ signal processing also asked, which had not done in years. No room for errors.
