    I applied online. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    First Round was online on Hackerrank, two questions. First one is vector dot product.

    Second one is tricky, which is to find the total number of pairs in array = k. I passed 5 of the test cases except 1.

    The interview was pretty average. They just asked questions about background and resume.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    Hackerrank coding test followed by pre-recorded video interview. The coding test asked some pretty basic questions that you would expect from a data structures class or intro to CS class. The pre-recorded video interview is an additional screen prior to the onsite.

    Interview Questions

    • CS questions were pretty easy and could easily be done with intro knowledge and a basic understanding of data structures. However, I was not prepared for the video interview.   Answer Question

They never contacted me to set up an interview and there wasn't an option to do so on their portal. 2 weeks later I get rejected. How u gonna select someone to interview, not interview them, and them reject them. Stupid company.
