    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was extremely demanding and challenging. IT tested what I had learned from both My economics professor as well as my background in History. Overall though I would recommend to a friend as the chance to work at Goldman is something truly special.

    Interview

    2 rounds. 1 was on college campus, another was at Goldman. the first round was fairly simple, mostly behavioral with some technical questions. the superday consisted of 2 interviews, each with 2 interviewers. 1 interview was very technical based, asked many questions, mostly randomly. the other interview was behavioral mixed with technical as well. there was a heavier focus on technical skills than behavior in the superday.

    Interview

    I Interviewed with IT department at Goldman on an interview date. I did not get an offer. The problems were not hard. Some people were nice, and some were not.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2008.

    Interview

    I applied through the college career website. I got selected for a campus interview. It was just one. I had to interview with two IT managers. They were dressed semi-formal. They did seem like geeks, but they were affluent. They know when someone is trying to say non-sense. They asked me about my past school projects and what it entails. They then asked me an algorithmic question: write an algorithm to detect a palindrome.
