    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    First I had a programming challenge sent to me and afterwards I was also sent a video recording interview. I had the superday in the New Jersey office. On the superday I had two 1 on 1 interviews with the engineers of the company. Afterwards they also had a session for you to meet with one of the engineers in order for you to ask some informal questions. Their New Jersey office was beautiful and they had some nice snacks for you to eat when you were done. The informal session was helpful especially when the employee gave us advice on how to succeed in Goldman as an engineer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Newark, NJ) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Had a HackerRank coding challenge in the beginning (1 DP question, 1 hashmap). Easy. Had HireVue interview. All behavioral; annoying but easy. Called for superday (2 45 minute interviews which went almost over till 50 minutes for me.) 1st one was 3 behavioral and 2 technical Qs.

    Interview Questions

    • Is posting exam solutions right? Machine learning questions because it was based on my resume.
      Print odd numbers from m to n, print prime numbers from 1 to n in optimal complexity.
      Some other BS behavioral question.

      Second interview was way easier in my opinion - 2 technical questions (explain greedy, DP; *and a question about using hashmap), they like Java so know Java. Behavioral: your coworker has problems with some employee, wtf do you do about it?

      *Question about hashmap: you have 2 integer vectors A, B. Go through each sets and print if they are present in A; present in B; or present in both.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Jersey City, NJ) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Simple enough. First the 2 question hackerrank test, then the hirevue a week later, then the onsite I believe about a month after.

    The hirevue consisted of all behavioral-oriented questions that ask you to draw on previous situations and experiences, so prepare for that.

    If you make it to the onsite, they pay for your flight and a nights stay at a 5 star business suite. On Superday, you'll get 2 45…

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs in December 2016.

    Interview

    Applied late November. I received a HackerRank challenge which was very easy. Two questions in 45 minutes -- I finished both questions/got all test cases. About a week later I received a HireVue interview. This interview had 5 questions, where you got 2-3 minutes to respond to each. Each question had 2 or 3 subproblems you had to respond to. That's where I messed up; I didn't really focus on the subproblems and ended up botching a lot of my answers. I didn't hear back after the HireVue. (At least not yet, it's been 2 months lol)

    This was terribly my fault though; behaviorals should be very easy to pass. I feel pretty dumb for not getting past the HireVue. Really wanted this opportunity but it fell through.
