There is a 100 story building and you have two eggs. How do you determine the highest floor from which you can drop the eggs without them breaking. (could also be black balls)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in March 2013.

Interview Details – First Round: 2:1 interview on campus, roughly half an hour in length. I was asked about my understanding of OOP concepts, as well as my experience with programming. I was asked to write a short code to reverse a string in c++. Pretty straight forward, but they were looking for detailed answers. I am not a Comp Sci student, so there were some questions I couldn't answer right away, but the interviewers gave hints that were helpful. They didn't waste any time going through my resume or asking any behavioral questions.

Second Round (Superday): I had 3 half-hour 1:1 interviews with members of one department. Some other candidate had additional interviews with 2 or 3 departments, 3 interviews for each. Interviews seemed to be more behavioral in my case. All three of my interviewers focused on what I hoped to get out of the internship, and surprisingly little on what I know.

My guess is that the first round was to check for knowledge, and the second round was more focused on fit.

Again, primarily asked basic data structures and OOP. Be ready to talk about yourself, past projects, and answer 'Why Goldman.'

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in December 2012.

Interview Details – Handed my resume to some recruiters at a tech conference earlier in October 2012 and got called up for superday for the first accelerated process mid December. They flew me to New York and I was brought to a conference room with about 15 other candidates. We were briefed and handed our interview schedules for the day (which division they put you in etc). I only have one division scheduled with 2 interviews, whereas I know some people who got up to 9 interviews.

So I had my 2 rounds of interviews each with 2 interviewers. They were really nice people and half the interview was me asking questions about the job. They got me to introduce myself a little and talk about my coding experience/ latest coding project. Then they asked a math/logic problem and a coding question. Also expect the standard Why Goldman Sachs question.

I got called about 2 working days later with an offer, which I accepted.

The process took a day - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in March 2011.

Interview Details – I had a 2 on 1 interview after a Career Fair on campus. They called me about a week later to fly me out to Salt Lake. I had three interviews each with three different divisions. Each one had a behavioral, a skills test, and then a technical. The technical interviews were pretty difficult. I stumbled on some of the questions.

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in April 2011.

Interview Details – First there was a 1:1 interview on campus. I was interviewed by a very friendly person who was a senior manager at the firm. The interview was resume based and behavioral. He asked a lot of questions on the projects I was working on and how would solve certain problems if they came up during the development of my projects. Then I was invited for an On Site interview, where I was interviewed by three people from my team.
