    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    Hiring through college. There were 3 interview rounds. the first was hr and the rest 2 were technical. It was very tough, the questions asked were random, although most were about whatever was written in the resume. However it was very interesting and dint seem lengthy even though it went on for a long time.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions were general questions. Nothing out of the ordinary. However there were atleast 2 questions asked for every 1 answered.   View Answer

    I am not fully prepared, that's why I fail

    Interview Details

    Two technical phone interviews. Started out with basic questions; talk about your resume, yourself, favorite classes etc. Followed with technical questions, mainly programming. Both interviews based on one or two "core" problems. After successfully answering them they asked for finer details on the answers, how to further optimize, confidence intervals, etc

    Interview Questions
    • using the basic programming methods, for, while, if, random number generator and arithmetic to calculate some sequence or mathematical constant.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Standard online application with SHL tests followed by an assessment day involving more tests, a group exercise, a one on one (more on that in a second), a panel interview and tea and coffee. Not a bad experience but the coffee was a little weak for a top investment bank. I would also avoid the tuna sandwiches and stick to the roast beef, I think they had horse radish in there somewhere so probably best that you bring some kind of mint before the interview stages. Got offered the job but turned it down following an unfortunate encounter with a member of HR which in turn has forced me to sign my name as a registered sex offender.

    Interview Questions
    • Some tricky mental arithmetic questions during interview stages such as 9^4.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got an e-mail inviting me for a phone interview. The phone interview was 30 minutes with a member of the team I'd be involved with. The questions were mostly behavioral. They asked about ethical dilemmas, how you work in a team, etc. Two weeks later, I was contacted for a second round interview. They flew me out to Salt Lake City where the interview was only an hour long. I had half hour sessions with two senior members, so four people total. The questions again were mostly behavioral.

    Interview Questions
    • The hardest part was being asked to teach them a concept in accounting and teach them a concept in finance.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I had a much better offer already and I didn't feel like I would fit in well.
