Quality Engineer Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at MathWorks (Natick, MA) in January 2019.

Interview

The interview was mainly about java and sql since that was what the position demanded. It was not that tough since I was thoroughly prepared to answer questions about both the technologies. I was also asked some behavioral questions and prepared a presentation for onsite after which I had 4 rounds of onsite. Pretty easy and smooth interview.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at MathWorks (Natick, MA).

    Interview

    - 2 phone screening
    - 1 on-site technical interview.
       - On-site interview was for 5 to 6 hours
       - Interviewed by 5 team members.
       - They will ask you to give a presentation. This to avoid same "clarification" questions later
          during the interview by multiple interviewers. Also this is good chance to impress people.
      - HR interview will be the last
      - Includes lunch interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at MathWorks (Salt Lake City, UT) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The head of the team called me for a one hour phone interview. Mainly questions came from C++ and Matlab. Not coding, but conceptual questions, followed by some standard questions - where do you see yourself in 5 years, strengths, weaknesses etc. Pretty basic. C++ questions were very simple - mostly things like explain polymorphism, explain OOP to a layman, what is the difference between ++i and i++, how does switch case work. From matlab, matrix manipulation, what do you not like about matlab and want to change.
