Quantitative Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
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
Very Difficult Interview
