    Very approachable interviewers. The questions were also not incredibly technical or complicated. They will usually guide you through any questions. They mainly want to see you can build a logical chain of thoughts and join them together.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Telephone interview. The guy asked me about my motivations for wanting to move into finance. He then asked me a bit about ML, about programming (but we had no languages in common, so that didn't go well), and then about maths. The interviewer sounded pretty uninterested in the whole process.

    Interview Questions

      If an ant moves uniformly at random between adjacent vertices of a cube, what is the expected time to reach the vertex furthest away from where it started?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The interview process was swift and the people I met were very helpful and friendly. There were 3 interviews at the final stage and I was questioned on why I wanted to be in the operations team when I was studying Marketing. Seemed odd they only brought up these up at the final stage. They never came back to me with any news so I just had to assume I was unsuccessful.

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Following a candidate referral, I was scheduled for 2x30 minutes face to face mini interviews (same day). Very impersonal welcome, the interviewers were late, no apology was offered. Very bad overall impression and shambolic interview process, including the follow up.
