Interview

At first a link to record a video. After video submission, HR called to say a HR interview can replace the video. After the HR phone call, schedule a technical interview and ask about many basic questions about three languages I chose.

Interview Questions

  • Specific questions related matlab are simple but unexpected, such as how to delete a row. No coding at all at first round.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MathWorks.

    Interview

    There were four interviews. The first one was a general interview that talks about the position and sets up the technical interview. The second one was the technical interview, composed with short answer questions related in various CS fields. The third one was a talk with the SE manager, mostly resume and behavior questions. The last one was a talk with the HR person, with some behavior questions and mostly talks about the later hiring process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at MathWorks in October 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online. Scheduled the first phone interview within a couple of weeks with the recruiter. Basic behavioral questions, what was a challenge you overcome, what were the steps you took to overcome it, that kind of stuff. Scheduled a technical interview after that - the recruiter offered to give me a few extra weeks to prepare, which I took. Technical interview was over the phone as well, 100% knowledge-based questions, no coding or problem-solving. Lasted about 45 minutes.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at MathWorks in August 2013.

    Interview

    I applied through employee referral and got an email for a technical phone interview. I didn't have an initial HR round. I was asked to submit a coding assignment prior to the interview(Java and C++). The interview lasted for almost an hour, with half of the time spend on going through the code and questions pertaining to it, which covered almost all the OOPs concepts. A few questions related to algorithms and time complexity were also asked. Previous work experience was also discussed. Almost all the questions were similar to the ones posted here.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MathWorks (Natick, MA) in November 2012.

    Interview

    At first there was a couple of phone interviews, maybe 2 or 3 with HR and one tech person. However, after those short ones were over, there was a 45 minute interviews grilling my on data structures question. I made it past that round but after that they didn't like my lack of knowledge of MATLAB. They definitely want you to know CS not only in practice but in theory.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at MathWorks (Natick, MA) in January 2011.

    Interview

    Initially started with Resume related questions and then basic HTML, Java, XML, XSL, CSS.
    The interviewer was showing no response to my answers. As soon as the interview started, he went to the technical question (no pleasantries). Once the interview was done then came the response that we will get back to you. No - do you have any questions? Not sure if it was me or the interviewer

    Interview Questions

    • What is the coolest technology for you? How much do you know about Matlab? Apart from that basic technical questions anyone can answer.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    There was no chemistry between me and my would-be manager.
