    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    Scheduled a phone interview after applying online. They contacted me within the next week to schedule an interview. The interviewer seemed uninterested and the interview felt rushed overall, which is understandable since they are busy people. There was a good balance of fit, resume, and basic technical questions. Nothing unexpected.

    Interview Details

    The process was very straightforward. You apply at their website and if they get interested in your profile, they will reach you. On the initial document they might ask you a bit about your background and for some docs if something is missing. A few days later, they will contact you again with the date for the interview. Usually they interview is on site and they will flight you if you are in the US, otherwise will conduct the interview via phone.

    Interview Questions
