    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I dropped my resume off at a career fair and then received an email that I had an interview in NYC. They paid for my trip there and for the hotel. I had a great experience there, everyone was really friendly and professional. The interview was mostly behavioral, which really surprised me.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked what I would do if i finished a project with a team, but then went home and realized there was a code in it and it was my fault.. They just want to know that you will do the right thing when working with teams.   View Answer

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a recruiter, gave her my resume. 2 phone interviews, one on-site which consisted of 3 interviews with people on the team I was going to be working with, followed by a meeting with the Director for the team. Final interview with HR a few days later.

    Interview Questions
    • A question about designing a system for sending trades and messages. Wasn't difficult by itself, but the interviewer was very hostile and questioned my competency when I made a minor semantic error (called "members" "class variables").   Answer Question

    Passed first round on campus interview. Asked 2-3 tech question, like fibonacci etc. Got flown to NY for on sight. Stayed in a 5 star hotel, which was chill. The on sight interview was a lot easier than the first round. Most managers don't remember any tech questions off top of their head to ask, so they just talk about what they do and about your resume. If they like you and see you are a good fit, the will hire you/

    Interview Details

    Contacted by HR 3 days ago, invited to attend a super day interview at Thur. I came to GS New York at around 7:30, talked shortly with some candidates and after a brief introduction by some GS employees we were suggested to go to different floor based on different team, I would say people there were very nice, the whole interview was very resume based, so make sure you fully know about your resume very well, some were technical and some are behavioral questions

    Took the path and got to GS at jersey city(their technology division headquarter) , talked with three different team leads and they were very very easy going, be told to do some code test(SQL, OOP design), and some brain teaser, they were not very hard, so just take it easy, stay sharp, the way you think matters to them. They told me the decision would be made by 8:00 pm

    Two days later I got the call from GS saying that both team were willing to give me an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • write a function that returns nothing but get the sum of two integers(simple one, but you should think of as many ways as possible)
      Tell me something that you've done and you're very proud of?
