    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in February 2008.

    Interview Details

    I applied through the college career website. I got selected for a campus interview. It was just one. I had to interview with two IT managers. They were dressed semi-formal. They did seem like geeks, but they were affluent. They know when someone is trying to say non-sense. They asked me about my past school projects and what it entails. They then asked me an algorithmic question: write an algorithm to detect a palindrome.

    There are several rounds (> 6) of interviews. Finally, when every one is happy, you will be asked to meet a very senior person (MD level) for the last round. That's almost a formality unless you really commit harakiri.

    IT Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in December 2007.

    Interview Details

    first stage was a telephone interview which consisted of technical questions so they could garner a view of your knowledge. it lasted about a half hour and consisted of short questions and answers and quite fact based.

    second stage interview took place at their offices and was approximately 90 minuets long meeting 3 members of the team that was hiring and one other associated manager from a related department. some short technical questions followed by some more people skills/scenario based questions. what would you do if a particular situation or problem arose. etc.

    third stage interview lasted approx 2 and a half hours which consisted of 5 different managers interviewing for 30 minute slots, afterwhich the next person would come in. very much a mixture of technical and general scenario based questions and also lots of focus on previous experience in other jobs and also university. got questioned about my degree and final year project which no one else ever has asked me about.

    kept waiting for 5 weeks before being told no offer would be made but a very thorough and professional interview process and a very worthwhile experience. best process i have been through and i have worked and interviewed at many investment banks.

    • describe in detail your final year project at university and explain your conclusions and justifiy.   View Answer
