    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Went to last stage assessment centre: 3 face-to-face interviews, thirty minutes each.
    Interviews were more like a chat than an interview, so way more chilled than I expected, although to be honest I am not sure what they were assessing this way.
    Some basic questions "tell me abt yourself" though.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    First, two online test, one math, one C++. Both are normal. Second, the virtual video interview, quite strange, only 4 questions and all are behaviour questions. Last, invited to onsite, three 45min interviews one by one. These become more interesting. Questions are behaviour questions and technical questions.

    Software Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Failed technical phone interview, which lasted 45 minutes. The coderpad was used, which is a quite nice tool. I was given 2 tasks. In each I had to implement a body of function. None was too difficult. My mistake was to have the interview after the lunch, so stumbled for 5-10 minutes initially, but then recovered and finished coding fairly quickly. Asked few quiestions, which highlighted that GS are fairly behind in terms of compiler/C++11/14.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Overall the interview process was great!

    Initially i was contacted by a member of HR who asked for my availability the following week- we managed to set up a 2 part interview. The first section was a 2:1 interview with an accociate and a team leader. The second part was a 1:1 with a VP in my area. Both interviews were pretty simple and everyone was supprisingly nice. I had prepped a LOT- but expected a grilling, really it was more like a chat and getting to know each other. They do ask for specific detailes on your CV however so for htis stage make sure you know it insdie out. each part lasted approx 40 mins.

    A few days later i had feedback to set up the next stage from the same person in HR for ASAP. This was conducted the following week and I skype interviewed with two people from the India (Banglore) office. Again these two people were great guys! This stage also felt like a chat and lasted only 30 mins...

    This is when the longest wait of approx 2 week happened. I reached out to my HR contact who informed me a second recruiter from the UK office (my current contact was in the US) would like to deliver feedback at the end of the following week- about 3 weeks after my 2nd stage and 4 weeks from my first stage.

    I 100% thought this was going to be a "we thought you were good but someone better came along" type of call.. However the day came and I recieved a call from the second recruiter- She offered the job and went through all the the detailes with me!

    Now it's just background checks and getting ready for my first day.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    7 inderviews during a whole day. All interviewers were very nice and helpful, more conversations and less tests. Each person interviewed me according to their own specialization, and they gave me the impression that failing at their questions doesn't necessarily mean I failed the interview, which helped me a lot to remain motivated all along, even after failing at some answers.
