    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was at a career fair and went to one of their hospitality suites
    Gave the man my resume and ask me for an interview time that next day at the booths
    At interview there were two older men, one who had been there for 29 years and another 26 years. There tables was blank, which I thought was odd. So i handed them my resume and neither of them were taking notes on questions they were asking me.

    They just skimmed my resume and asked questions about EVERYTHING that was on there.

    They said they would email me if they would consider me but i had a bad vibe with them anyways and another guy i met that had an interview said he got asked for a 2nd interview right his first interview at the career fair

    It was a campus drive. The first round consisted of technical and aptitude mcqs, two programming questions and an essay. This was followed by a group discussion in which we were given a situation and we had to come to a conclusion unanimously. Then we had two technical interviews and one hr interview. Lots of questions were asked based on my current project and my resume. Some situations were given in the hr interview to which I had to tell how I would react.
