    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    Received a straightforward hackerrank with 2 questions. 5 days later I was sent a hirevue link where I answered 4 purely behavioral questions in front of a webcam. 3 weeks later I attended one of GS's superdays.

    The superday consisted of 2 interviews, both 45 minutes long. I was told that one interview was supposed to be technical and the second behavioral, but I think I ended up with 2 behavioral interviews because I didn't answer any technical questions. In both interviews, the interviewers went very in depth into my resume; nothing was off limits, so make sure you know every detail of each project listed on it.

    I was initially told I would hear back in about 1-2 weeks but I heard back exactly 3 weeks after my superday with an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    The entire process took 1 month, consisting of hirevue and 1 Superday.

    3 rounds of 30min interviews on Superday, with each having 2-3 interviewers that may be on video conference as well.

    The entire Superday was very pleasant and the interviewers were friendly. The questions were 90% behavioral and fit related, with only 1-2 technical questions thrown in. You may even have to elaborate on your hobbies and interests!

    Personally, I feel that the key is to really engage them with the things you say. Teamwork capabilities are really important for Goldman as well.
