    Interview

    Started off with the video interview as explained in previous posts. Was called back and set up a web interview. Questions were mostly the same as those detailed in other posts. Nothing was a surprise.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at MathWorks (Boston, MA) in July 2013.

    Interview

    There were two rounds that I faced. First was a phone interview about my resume and generic behavioral questions. It was a discussion with an HR person, so this went pretty smooth.

    The 2nd round was purely technical, again on phone. It was a 50 min session that had 4 parts in it. Math, General Programming Concepts, C language, Matlab and Signal Processing. The questions were slightly tough but not terribly hard to answer. Prepare for atleast 3,4 days in advance and you can nail it.

    Interview

    I dropped my resume at school's career fair. They contacted me after about two weeks and set up an phone interview.

    They let me choose 3 programming language that I'm most comfortable with and I chose C/C++ , Python and Java. The phone interview took about 1 hour and consist of all technical questions vary from basic math to the language details. There's no hard questions but the interviewer sounds like a recruiter without tech background. She failed to explain the detail of the question several times.

    A HR from MathWorks called me and asked the basic things about my background and asked a question like how do you handle conflict with your peers. Nothing special, they are seeking people have good academic record. A technical interview arranged then after.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MathWorks (Gainesville, FL) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Talked to recruiter in the career showcase and they called me to schedule another interview the following day. Situational questions are asked. Technical interview followed about 2 weeks later on campus. 2 hours to finish 4 areas that chosen ahead of time. Most questions can be found on glassdoor. Screwed up the control theory part. Nearly all recruiters are Indians.... Got a call from the HR a week later asked something about the resume and was told to wait for response. Rejected indicated online.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MathWorks (Natick, MA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume online and got a call after 2+ weeks for the internship position as a Technical Support. The person who interviewed me was the EDG of the company. She asked me general question based on previous internship, working in a group, solving conflicts in a group, how would you deal with working on multiple projects? will you use any tools etc., how is the overall process of job search going on? And then she scheduled a Technical Phone Interview for which I am preparing. She also sent an email which read:

    The interview will take approximately 40 minutes and will cover:

        * Basic math (discrete math, algorithm theory, probability and Big Oh notation)
        * Programming concepts (understand syntax and how the program works)
        * Choice of two programming languages (C or C++) and (Java or MATLAB) – One object-oriented language is required (if C++, understand syntax and structure, compilation and OOP concepts)

    There will also be some non-technical questions discussed.

    Hope this helps and will post further comments after my phone interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MathWorks.

    Interview

    I was contacted via email after I've sent my online application for a first 30 minutes telephone interview, which was mainly about my CV, skills, motivation, etc.

    Following upon one week later was a technical telephone interview scheduled for one hour. It contained of four sections: mathematics, C-programming / concepts of OOP, control theory and MATLAB/Simulink programming/functionality.

    After passing the test, I was invited for a personal interview at the company, which took 4 hours and contained several interview partners from support, application, HR and team members. I got interviewed by two department leaders about my background, motivation, behaviour with potential customers as well as strengths and weaknesses. It was followed by a short talk with the HR department. Following upon was again a written test with questions regarding math, C-programming, control theory and Simulink. After meeting potential team members, I was shown the typical working environment.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MathWorks (Calgary, AB (Canada)) in April 2016.

    Interview

    First round was with a regional manager. He just asked some basic questions and explained the role of this job. I was informed of a technical phone interview later. Regarding this, there are four tracks to select, which are computer science, embedded system, signal processing and control theory. The phone interview was conducted with an employee in Engineering Development Group (EDG). One week after this, I got the invitation for an on-site interview.
