Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in January 2017.

Interview

Two phone interviews. Asked probability questions with dice, unbiased estimator, basic financial calculus including derivative pricing, c++, python, R. Not too difficult. Quite hard to understand the interviewer and he wasn't very helpful when asking questions regard the company.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in February 2012.

    Interview

    The first round was a phone interview. Fairly simple. Some questions about my resume and my motivation to join the company. After the first screening interview, I have been invited to pass a series of interviews within one afternoon. I have been interviewed by 10 different employees, each interview lasted between 30 and 45 mins. It was all about brainteaser and probability exercises. Only that.
    This is the type of questions I have been asked:
    - Suppose that you are flipping a coin endless times. What is the expected round where you would get the same side 3 consecutive times?

    Interview Questions

    • Assume that you have an NxN Matrix, filled with decreasing numbers if you go from left to right and from top to bottom. Can you design an efficient search algorithm on this matrix. Hint: the most efficient one should have a Log(N) complexity...   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in January 2008.

    Interview

    Had about 4 interviews, mostly technical asking about basic maths (eg derive basic combinatorial properties). Most people very calm and listened rather than talked. Asked about C programming. I'd heard they were most interested in fitting into the 'goldman sachs' way, where people put the company before themselves. My impression was that it was very demanding.

    Interview Questions

    • All questions roughly similar, just need to have excellent grasp of basic maths and tools.   Answer Question
