Summer Analyst - Technology Interview

Summer Analyst - Technology
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in October 2013.

Interview Details – I was interviewed from three different teams in the technology department, each team conducted three 30 minutes interview, sometimes there were two people interviewing me at the same time. The first 30 minutes of each interview was all about behavioral questions and about my resume, followed by the technical questions which involved general questions mainly about OOP concepts. Two teams gave me a coding assignment on paper which was straight forward. and one of the interviewers asked me a brain teasing problem. The interviewers were very nice, and the overall interview process was very comfortable. Unfortunately I didn't receive an offer.

Interview Question – The most unrelated question was when one interviewer asked me about network protocols, which is something that I'm not experienced in, and there wasn't any networking skills that I have listed on my resume. which was very surprising   Answer Question

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

Interview Details – FIrst had an interview on campus with two interviewers. One person asked me about Java questions regarding OOP concepts, data structures, and syntax. The other interviewer asked about C programming experience and pointers. They also asked some behavioral questions at the end of the interview regarding my leadership experiences.

After 2 days, I was invited to the their NY office, where I was scheduled to have 9 interviews. 3 interviews each with 3 different departments. All interviews were 30 minutes, so the technical questions were not difficult. They asked me about Java and SQL, as the company uses these languages heavily.
