Organization : Goldman Sachs
Position : Software Developer
I applied through my university and thus the process took just one day and I was interviewed at Goldman Sachs. I am giving the details and breakdowns of my interview below:
First Round: Aptitude and Programming Written Test
This was a written round in which all the applicants were given some regular aptitude puzzles along with programming questions.
Second Round: Group Discussion Round
This round was the most enjoyable round. Different groups were allotted and they just tested how we will react in different situations.
Third Round: Interview
In this round, majorly my resume based questions were asked to me. Some technical questions regarding the projects I had done earlier were also asked. Overall, it was an easy going round for me.
Fourth Round: Technical Interview
As I mentioned, this was a technical round and the interviewee asked just technical questions only. I would say the difficult was moderate and mostly c++ and Sql questions were asked.
Fifth Round: Technical Interview
The focus in this round was mainly on java and c++. The questions were mostly difficult but some were easy too (maybe just to let you relax a bit before another tough was asked). If you need to prepare, you need to prepare well for this round for sure. One of the question I remember was related with implementing multiple inheritance in Java.
Sixth Round: HR Interview
Finally, a sigh of relief as this was the final round and that too mostly basic. I was asked about the previous company, about why I wanted to join Goldman Sachs and my experience. Then offers were announced.
I will say that the interview process was eye opener for me and it was a healthy one.
