    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Received a straightforward hackerrank with 2 questions. 5 days later I was sent a hirevue link where I answered 4 purely behavioral questions in front of a webcam. 3 weeks later I attended one of GS's superdays.

    The superday consisted of 2 interviews, both 45 minutes long. I was told that one interview was supposed to be technical and the second behavioral, but I think I ended up with 2 behavioral interviews because I didn't answer any technical questions. In both interviews, the interviewers went very in depth into my resume; nothing was off limits, so make sure you know every detail of each project listed on it.

    I was initially told I would hear back in about 1-2 weeks but I heard back exactly 3 weeks after my superday with an offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Jersey City, NJ) in December 2017.

    Interview

    I did a hackerrank, then a week later got an invite to a HireVue (pre-recorded questions I had to answer by recording myself). Two weeks later I was invited to a Superday in Jersey City, NJ. Some of the questions at the Superday were very vague and open-ended, and didn't seem behavioral or related Computer Science. The only technical question they asked wasn't very difficult, but was also very vague.

    My advice for the Hirevue and the Superday would be to let them know your personality, and not to seem too nervous.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    Fairly straight forward. Hackerrank questions, however base cases were hard to get through.The programming portion is trivial.
    Probability, linear algebra, and recursive backtracking. Nothing was overall very hard, I guess I was expected to get a perfect on it for them to proceed further with my application

    Interview

    I did the online assessment on Hackerrank. There are two algorithms problems in 60 minutes. The first I can't remember exactly: just take a fixed length substring from the original string then do a hashmap to store them. The second is a modified two sum question, still using hash map and return the count of pairs that sum up to integer k.
