    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    Was invited to on-campus interview at first. The interview had two parts: first behavioral and second technical. The behavioral interviewer basically asked me everything on my resume. The interviewer annoyingly asked me twice/thrice about how I debugged my code of the same project. The technical question is about scheduling. I think it's a dynamic programming question but is not very hard.
    Was invited to on-site interview in a week. Two parts again: technical and behavioral. Two hours in total. The technical is easy. Basic hash table questions and string-integer conversion problem.
    Received an offer in a week.

    Interview Questions
    • The interviewer asked some financial questions. Answered a few but said "I don't know" to the last question.   Answer Question

    Don't really enjoy the company culture.
    They messed up a tech talk event hosted by a student organization I am in.
    They don't get along well with other student organizations.
    They put "MR." before my friend's name on her offer latter.

    In general, they have no regard for people.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Goldman Sachs in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume through college and got an invitation for an on campus interview. The on campus interview had two parts, 45 minutes each. One was supposed to be technical and the other behavioral, but both ended up being technical (content depends highly on the interviewer .) The onsite interview was at their New Jersey office, with two rounds and took two hours. Mostly concept/design type of questions; no really hard coding/algorithm questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions about databases concepts. Not very difficult, but quite unexpected.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    There was nothing bad about the interviews or interviewers themselves, but the whole process was rather poorly organized and coordinated. There had been many mistakes/miscommunication in terms of scheduling, accommodation etc.
