    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The questions were biref and simple. For the technical part, they were fairly simple questions about the concepts and feature of some programming languages. I thought the interview went well enough but since I didn't receive an offer, I guess it really wasn't.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    The first step is the code challenge given directly after the online application. It's from hacker rank and one of them was about dynamic programming. If they are happy about your performance and background then you will be invited to take a video interview. Honestly you cannot prepare for it as the behaviour questions were taken from a big pool. There is another round of 3 onsite interviews for 1.5 hours in total with different level of interviewers should you successful at this stage. I'm not sure if there's a final round of telephone interview (yeah that's wired).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Went to last stage assessment centre: 3 face-to-face interviews, thirty minutes each.
    Interviews were more like a chat than an interview, so way more chilled than I expected, although to be honest I am not sure what they were assessing this way.
    Some basic questions "tell me abt yourself" though.

    • Do you think that team problems happen more because of boys or girls?   Answer Question

    Interview

    First, two online test, one math, one C++. Both are normal. Second, the virtual video interview, quite strange, only 4 questions and all are behaviour questions. Last, invited to onsite, three 45min interviews one by one. These become more interesting. Questions are behaviour questions and technical questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    One on One interview with the MD of the Investment Banking division. It's 30 minutes long. It begins with the interviewer introducing themselves and their background and then a brief opportunity for you to do the same. They then review your CV and proceed to ask you a few technical questions. Nothing too difficult. I think the main intention is to get a gist of who you are as a person, so just be personable and friendly rather than mechanical and overly prepped.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe How a merger would occur?   Answer Question
    • Describe the concept of comparative advantage?   Answer Question
    • What is 9/16 as a decimal?   1 Answer
    • There are eight balls. Seven of them weigh the same but one of them has a different weight (heavier or lighter). How do you find the odd ball with two weighs?   1 Answer
