    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed from three different teams in the technology department, each team conducted three 30 minutes interview, sometimes there were two people interviewing me at the same time. The first 30 minutes of each interview was all about behavioral questions and about my resume, followed by the technical questions which involved general questions mainly about OOP concepts. Two teams gave me a coding assignment on paper which was straight forward. and one of the interviewers asked me a brain teasing problem. The interviewers were very nice, and the overall interview process was very comfortable. Unfortunately I didn't receive an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • The most unrelated question was when one interviewer asked me about network protocols, which is something that I'm not experienced in, and there wasn't any networking skills that I have listed on my resume. which was very surprising   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    FIrst had an interview on campus with two interviewers. One person asked me about Java questions regarding OOP concepts, data structures, and syntax. The other interviewer asked about C programming experience and pointers. They also asked some behavioral questions at the end of the interview regarding my leadership experiences.

    After 2 days, I was invited to the their NY office, where I was scheduled to have 9 interviews. 3 interviews each with 3 different departments. All interviews were 30 minutes, so the technical questions were not difficult. They asked me about Java and SQL, as the company uses these languages heavily.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    The first round was done on campus and there were about 50 people who got passed the resume screening that day. Round one was purely fit based questioning. It was things like what would you do if you have an issue working with an employee, tell me about a time when, why Goldman Sachs etc. After about a week, I got an email inviting me to the Superday.
      The super day can be brutal depending on how many groups are interested in you. Some only had about 1 to 2 interviews and went home. I had 9 interviews which lasted all day. I got in at 8am and left at 5pm.
      Questions are entirely dependent on the person. Some spent the entire time giving me brain teasers, some were mostly focused on fit and some did a mixture of fit and technical. Brain teasers can be really brutal at the end of the day when you're exhausted. I got a call within 1 business day with an offer, the Superday was Friday and the call came Monday.
      Some might consider 9 rounds of interview in a day to be a bad thing. However, it's actually really good because you just took a final round with many different departments and have a really good chance of an offer rate.
