Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Bengaluru (India)) in February 2011.

Interview

It consisted of 10 rounds overall, as I couldn't commit an 8 hours at a stretch, I had to go there on 3 separate days. The first day consisted of five technical rounds. First interview was based on core java concepts. Second interview was based on product and simple java code. Third interview was based on agile and product. Fourth interview consisted of simple puzzles, a couple of codes to be written. Fifth interview mainly consisted of some analytical puzzles and some data structure based puzzles.

Second day consisted of a manager round and another technical round.

The final day consisted of a meeting with another manager, the manager's manager who sits in London, and anothe technical round based on a data structure question
