Quantitative Analyst Interview

Quantitative Analyst

I applied online and interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

Interview Details – A lot of brainteasers and typical quant interview questions. Friendly interviewer.

Interview Question – You have 10 mice and 1000 bottles of wine. You also have 24 hours before a party, and one of the bottles has been tainted with a slow acting poison, which takes 24 hours to kill a mouse. In the 24 hours you have remaining, how many bottles can you guarantee safe for human consumption (assume humans and mice react identically)? Assume the lethal dosage is insignificant relative to the size of the bottle.   View Answers (4)

Difficult Interview

Quantitative Analyst Interview

Quantitative Analyst
London, England (UK)

I interviewed at Goldman Sachs in January 2008.

Interview Details – Had about 4 interviews, mostly technical asking about basic maths (eg derive basic combinatorial properties). Most people very calm and listened rather than talked. Asked about C programming. I'd heard they were most interested in fitting into the 'goldman sachs' way, where people put the company before themselves. My impression was that it was very demanding.

Interview Question – All questions roughly similar, just need to have excellent grasp of basic maths and tools.   Answer Question

Interview Question – a, b, c are integers. Such that a^2 + 2bc = 1; b^2 + 2ac=2012, find all the possibles values of c^2 + 2ab.   View Answers (4)
