Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

Interview Details

After applying online HR called me to schedule an onsite 3 half hour interviews. The first one was mostly behavioral but the next two interview were only technical questions. Some of the questions that I remember were: 1) given an array of integers design an algorithm that prints how many times each number appears in the array e.g. [1, 5, 2, 5] so 1: 1 , 2: 1, 5: 2. 2) Given an integer make a function that reverses that integer. 3) Solve the best time to buy and sell a stock problem.

    Networking with an alumni on info session, got into first round and pass it. It is divided into behavioral and tech, each is 30 mins. if you prepare for it, it should be easy.

    Fly out to NYC for second round. It went bad since they test me on one particular question related to my resume experience and i simply forgot what to do...

    My performance would be a B if I grade myself. Don't know whether i would have an offer or not. A lot of people helped me a out in the process so I wanna give it back here.

    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?
