    Met with three different teams and each team interviewed me for about an hour and a half, asking mostly personal fit questions and a few technical questions. The process is long but not particularly challenging.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Jersey City, NJ) in January 2017.

    Interview

    First is hackerrank then is hirevue then onsite. What is notable is that I got invited for superday before submitting the hirevue interview.
    Superday was two rounds. First is with a senior level guy who's really friendly and funny... however he asked lots of behavior questions from the paper provided to him so I feel like it's not a good way of understanding each other. One technical question that was pretty fun. The second round is with two younger engineers who seems really unapproachable and unfriendly.. I basically walked out of the interview knowing that it won't end up good.

    The HR will call about the decision. It only took them one week so that was really good. Overall the interview is very easy, but it really depends on who you meet on that day.

    Interview

    First step was to make a code in Hackerrank.com
    You will have to pass 3 exercises. Most of them difficult.
    Second step they will give you a link for the "Interview". It is almost like TOEFL speaking part.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Irving, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was streamlined with a few steps. First, you start off by getting a HackerRank challenge (everyone gets's it after applying online). There are 2 questions, 45 mins total time. One of them was easy, the other one was average difficulty (a problem on Dynamic Programming). I was able to submit both the solutions, even though my second solution didn't run in all test cases (I think it was 12/15).

    Then I got an email for a HireVue interview. Basic behavioral questions regarding how do you perform in teams and how to approach a problem.

    Then, after a few weeks, I got invited to Superday in Irving, TX office. 2 interviews, each had 2 interviewers. The first interview had many personality questions, why GS, and an interesting puzzle/logic problem to solve (I was able to solve it). The next interview was purely technical. The question was based on managing a database and used extensive OOP concept. you should be able to code on a whiteboard, know the run-time, complexity, and ways to improve your algorithm. Overall, the interview process was fairly hard however, the interviewers were extremely helpful.

    Finally, I got a call from New York, about 4 weeks after my interview (they said it would be a week or two though) saying that I got the internship. I would recommend know a language really well, do projects outside school (my past internship experience and projects were helpful during the interview), and make sure to show leadership qualities of taking over tasks and going beyond what is given to you.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    I was rejected after the phone interview. I thought my interview went well and was happy with it.
    I was asked a lot of questions from my resume, one algorithm LinkedList question. However, I was not able to answer one question related to a design question.
    The interviewer was stupid enough to reject me for one question I didn't answered.
