    Not very hard, half about resume, half about data structure.

    I am not fully prepared, that's why I fail

    Interview Details

    Two technical phone interviews. Started out with basic questions; talk about your resume, yourself, favorite classes etc. Followed with technical questions, mainly programming. Both interviews based on one or two "core" problems. After successfully answering them they asked for finer details on the answers, how to further optimize, confidence intervals, etc

    I was sent Immediately to "super day".... through networking.

    5 interviews in Chicago office 7AM - Noon. Ranged from VPs to new hires.

    Awesome facility. The experienced professionals were awesome. Younger analysts seemed awkward & overworked.

    I am not a finance major, so questions were more market based/behavioral based/etc.... Nothing too complex. If you watch the news/follows the WSJ you should be fine understanding the questions.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    pretty standard interviews. spoke with almost everyone in the team. Goldman focuses on team work so character matters a lot, of course you have to be a qualified candidate first. It was overall a very positive interview experience. Everyone I spoke with was very professional and nice. It was a very long process, round by round. Be prepared.
