    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    Shortly after submitting my application the company called me for first meeting. Id consisted of 3 interviews. First: Analysis, Thinking. Solving some basic problems. they tested more approach to the problem than skills. Second: Technical. Questions about Java, Algorithms, SQL. Still quite basic. The interviewers didn't expect perfect answer, but tested approach. Third: Speaking with senior staff. Rather opportunity to ask than answer questions. After a week or so two phone interviews - both testing interpersonal skills. a bit stressing, some technical questions. My tip would be to ask questions, show the way You approach problems, be calm and relaxed. It surprised me how friendly the people in the company are.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    Two 30 min on-campus interviews. Got flown to New York for onsite. Two 45 minute interviews with 2 people each. The recruiters are very nice and make you feel comfortable :) The interviewers are also awesome people. On-campus interviews were VERY easy questions, wrote them up in python. Onsite questions were more java/python/OS trivia questions, not much coding surprisingly. Talked about past projects.

    Interview

    Three person will interview and then ask you different question. Different person ask different questions and sometime they ask to perform some ask and code to see if you have solve the problem. They are most likely going to see how you think and how you approach the problem. I think that it is a good experience and help us to make thinking and making problem. And there are many things that can be asked too. And there is a different experience after all.

    Interview

    Face to Face. I talked with two men, one for a DP Problem and one for my project. I felt nervous and my speaking ability is weak. Hence, I received a rejection. The two men are all very nice. The DP program is to make schedule for the boss. I have to schedule his meetings. These meetings have different priorities and durations. The goal is to arrange as many meetings as possible.

    Interview

    I attended on-campus recruiting. There are two interviews. First one is simple. Answer some basic algorithms and knowledge, such as remove duplicates from linked list, what is primary key, foreign key. You must specify the running time of your algorithms. Then ask a brain teaser. There are three baskets of fruit, one is filled with all apples, another is filled with all oranges, the third one is mixed by apples and oranges. Each basket has a tag on it, but all of them are wrong. You can just take one fruit from one of the basket and rearrange the tags. The second interview is just about a meeting scheduling problem.
