    Very Straightforward interview process. The questions asked were not difficult, but it is imperative that you prepare for the role. If you do not prepare it will be obvious to the interviewer.

    Vice President Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    They outsource their HR function to ADP. ADP associates have no familiarity with the actual business, aren't located in their offices and are disorganized. Had my first screening with them, they had no understanding of what I was saying but rather just wrote down exactly what I said. I was then contacted by another ADP person to schedule the same interview I had already had,. After that was cleared up, I had a phone interview with someone from the business line. After that interview, they dropped off the face of the earth and never responded to follow-ups. The job stayed active for 6-months after that. I was an employee referral (including to the global head of HR) and still couldn't get a response. Hubris is real.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT (US)).

    Interview

    The interview process was three steps and very organized. The first step is your written application. The second step is a virtual interview based on their core competencies. After that you may be invited to a super day to confirm you are good fit for the company.

    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 were scheduled next week.
    The first round was pretty simple they asked me bunch of semi-technical (noncoding) questions and I was able to answer them right away. Had another round after this during the same call and was asked a lot of programming question (see below).
