    Interview Details

    The interview consisted of four rounds. First was general aptitude, followed by an interview with the HR and then a behavioral round. I didn't make it to the fourth round, but I think it was a technical round. Along with the aptitude, we were also asked to write essays. Nothing too difficult.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    The position was in India - Bangalore office of Goldman Sachs. I was contacted via a recruiter. Then the HR contacted me and did an initial briefing of the role and then later called me for a full day face to face interviews at their office.

    There was an initial interview from the HR and then followed by two different head of the Technology teams. Then later that day by the senior folks in the team. It was all very friendly / conversation type discussions through out. After a week , I received few more phone discussions with my potential counter parts from the US office.
    Overall , it was a pleasant experience. It took almost 6 weeks to complete the interview process and another three more weeks for the final offer.

    Interview Details

    many rounds of interview but not that difficult, core java questions are predominant, sql and problem solving skills are checked, queries are based on views, caching, indexes... in java, collections and threads are concentrated. design skills are not tested so much at this level. All though there would be many rounds but questions would be repetitive.

    Interview Details

    Barely a 10 minute interview. Seemed to be more of a chit chat than a question answer round. I thought they would be more interested in the kind of person I am, however they preferred to take CAs and CFA qualified people.
