Data Analyst Interview

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Jersey City, NJ) in February 2015.

Interview

I had a phone interview as a first round and then on-site interview later. It wasn't that technical or formal but general interview process checking previous experiences and educational background. Also, there's brain teaser and some technical questions from some interviewers. There are three interviewers and the first interviewer just checked my background and experiences and with the second interviewer we talked about some technical questions like SQL.
