    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    Very well organized. I applied online and got contacted by a recruiter, talked with them for 30 mins and went really well and was told they would like to move forward with the next rounds of the interview process. I was then scheduled a call with someone from UK office (see below for questions that I was asked). Went well. Next rounds of interview are next week and will update this once the interview is done.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. If you are in an elevtor and the manager was talking about someone that you know, how would you handle that
      2. If someone was taking credits for the work that you have done, how would you handle it.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Several vigorous rounds of quantitative questions. Testing analytical ability and thinking, but not any particular business or finance knowledge. Probability, estimation, reasoning, and other types of topics like that. Again, the point is getting to know your ability to calculate and think.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    I got emails from multiple Goldman teams asking for interview availability, but Goldman has this (strange) rule that you can only interview for one team. So, I had to pick the team that emailed me first. The interview was awesome, I solved both questions with the most optimal solution, passed all test cases, but I never heard back from the team, until I sent them an email and I immediately got a rejection! Why keep me waiting for weeks? At least let me know beforehand so I can interview for other teams! Extremely unprofessional and a total waste of time!

    Interview

    Codepad interview - The interviewer was neglectful and it was very off putting. It was easy to see that he did not want to be doing interviews - He sent me a problem, then did other work in the background ignoring my questions.

    The interview process should be an engaging back and forth, and this was anything but...
