Software Engineer Intern Interview

Software Engineer Intern

Interviewed at Goldman Sachs

Interview Details – Went in for the first-round interview and ended up tanking. I forgot a lot of the stuff from my class. Interviewers were not pleased and cut the interview short at 30 minutes. First-round interview was mainly personality based and not technical. From what I've heard, the second round interviews are more technical.

The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in March 2007.

Interview Details – One on-campus interview and then a full day of onsite interviews. I was asked programming and computer science questions, basic behavioral questions, and a couple of brainteasers. I had to write some basic code to answer a few questions. Each interview last about 30 minutes. For the onsite interviews, I had three with each of the two groups that were considering hiring me.

Software Engineer(Intern) Interview

Software Engineer(Intern)

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in April 2010.

Interview Details – I went to a career fair at my school campus, and spoke with the representatives. I thought the talk that I had with the representatives wasn't all that interesting, but nevertheless they gave me an interview that same night. They scheduled an interview for the next day, probably because they flew from out of town to hire in the area.

Interview Question – What is a hash? What's the difference between a hashtable and a hashmap?   Answer Question
