    Interview Details

    Got PPO after internship. Internship interview primarily focused on basic coding and resume based questions. Coding part was on the easier side with sorting, merging etc. Aptitude consisted of permutations and combinations questions and some standard puzzles easily available online. Inshort, nothing out of the box and steady preparation will get you through.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Used campus recruiting to get interview. Four rounds of interviews in one day, with 2 or more interviewers in each round. Interviewers were friendly but straightforward with their questions. They seemed to prefer concise answers.

    The people I encountered seemed pretty down-to-earth, and the culture/environment was surprisingly low-key (as opposed to the stereotype of cut-throat, isolated, and fast-paced environments associated with some firms).
