    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    2 hour interview - first round with 2 people second round with the hiring region's manager. First round went great with typical questions. Second round went terribly as I was being interviewed for my technical experience and she didnt know anything about DBs. They were implementing a new data warehouse and I attempted to prove my knowledge on the matter she informed me I was being abrasive. I guess don't be smarter than the interviewer

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, was invited to the office. Had four interviews. Was told that I would be contacted in the next couple weeks. One of the gents was not very personable, looked angry and not interested to be at the interview. I found the whole process to be interesting, the building is large and amazing. I would have preferred the New York office.

    Interview Details

    3 Rounds of Interview. Main focus, it appeared, was to see if the candidate can be a team player or not.
    They dont high-fi knowledge w.r.t Financial services industry. They would just like to see if you have the basic knowledge of it and if you are confident of your basics.
