Interview Process
Test Technical Interview
Round 1

Test

Duration
180 Minutes
Test Sections
  • Section 1: MCQ Objective: Probability+General Math (10Q), Algorithms and Data Structures(10Q), Core CS (5Q)-Optional for non CSE students.
  • Section 2: Subjective: Probability+General Math (4-5 Q), Algorithms and Data Structures(4-5 Q), Core CS (2-3 Q)-Optional for non CSE students.
Interview Experience
The first half is objective. I believe the candidates need to clear a bare minimum in each section in order for their subjective papers to be checked. After 75-90 minutes, the objectives are collected and the subjective papers are distributed (again 75-90 minutes long). Everyone is allowed to finish both papers. You're allowed to leave in the middle of the duration if you don't want to attempt any further. Disclaimer: This has been the format more or less in the last 2 placement rounds ('13 and '14). It may/may not change.
Interview Tips
The test is the most important part of getting an interview. People with very good CPI's and stellar resumes might not even get an interview if they don't do well in the test. The test is extremely conceptual and will grill one on the basics. Some resources which will help you to figure out the type of questions that can be asked: http://www.cseblog.com/



http://ai.stanford.edu/~hdwang/puzzle.html



http://gurmeet.net/puzzles/



It would be advisable to take an algorithms and a probability class if you haven't studied them and want to do good in the test. MOOCs are also an option if you can't get a classroom course.
Round 2

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: 1. What is the probability that a person starting at 1 and who takes single steps ahead/back with equal probabilities reach 0 before 100?
  • Question 2: Variants of using random number generators/Monte Carlo Simulations to generate value of Pi and other quantities.
Interview Experience
All interviews had a highly technical component again based on my quanti skills. Whatever quanti based technical skills I'd mentioned on my resume were thoroughly grilled upon along with the questions/puzzles asked.



HR was limited to tell me about yourself and why do you want to join the firm.
Interview Tips
1. Again a huge focus is on your tech skills (similar questions to the test), and:



2. From what I've gathered so far, the firm is an extremely team oriented  place. So if they feel you lack the adequate communication and team skills, that translates to a no-go. I wasn't asked specifically about experiences I've had in teams and other PORs I've held, but you can be sure that they will have a look at it in your resume and will also judge you during the interview based on the way you explain your solution/thought process to them. There are always examples of people who are technically proficient but don't pass the (coarse IMO) filter of soft skills. So do work on them.

  • Quant+Math
General Tips
Placement process is important if you want to get out in the business/non-academia world. Clean your slates of all extraneous rubbish before the semester begins as each and every day of the semester is important. Starting from resume, going to PPTs, figuring out your companies, practicing apti tests, sharpening tech skills, acquiring case prep skills, GDs, giving tests, preparing for interviews/HR and finally going for it in December. It's a jam packed roller coaster ride and you don't want to miss out on the fun by engaging with something not driving you towards your goal. The learning curve in this semester can be exponential if you commit to it and it is indeed a lot of fun. There might be a bit of physical stress due to the number of hours you will possibly be putting into the process, but make sure you stay out of pressures of any kind: self imposed or peers.
Motivation for applying
I love my math and want to work in a place where I get to use analytical/quanti skills everyday. Finance is a good place to do this as I was told by my seniors (Disclaimer: I have practically zero finance knowledge as of now). Also I want to work with the smartest and the most analytical people. GS ranked the highest on both the fronts according to me among the companies that hire from mechanical. I knew people working there before the placements who told me about their positive experiences over there. Plus, it is an elite institution with a lot of perks and good compensation.<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
TL;DR: No-brainer.
Funny Moments
1. String of night outs for 7-10 days for putting up a good resume: Close friends sitting a room with microsoft word in front of them and getting existential crisis about what they've done in their life. Finally a week of polishing the resumes and reading them: Man, I think I've done a decent job in IIT. <br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
2. Last line of resume: avid fan of Led Zeppelin. <br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
3. Day 0, T minus 12 hours: Majorly flunked a mock interview with a friend as I realized that I'd spent the previous week on non conentional HR like 'which animal best represents you and why' and was struggling with my tell me about yourself basics. Sat for the next 5 hours cooking up and mugging the answers to the standard HR questions. These is how I fared:<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
3. Towards the end of my very first interview (with a consulting firm):<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
Int: Is there anything else you'd like to add?<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
Me: My favorite band is Led Zeppelin. I really, really love their songs.<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
Int: You got me there. (smiles). <br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
Got the next interview right after that with the same firm.<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
4. In the next interview:<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
Int: So what do you think a consultant does?<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
Me:(I had decided the previous night to go ahead with this answer) A consultant is like Batman, and the clients are like commissioner Gordon. They flash the light when they're in trouble, and the consultant is always there when help is needed. They'll do they their job as quickly and efficiently as possible just like Batman. (I followed it up with the reasonable standard answer.) <br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
5. When the HR head of GS told me in the last interview that they were planning to put my name in the final hiring list and I said I'd be glad to accept that and wouldn't plan to go for any other firm if they're planning to do so:<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
Me: So, should I stick around here now or am I free to go get my beer?<br />
<br />
<br />
<br />
Int: Go ahead and get your beer :)

Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Tips
A Good Resume is the one with a clear message in one glance. One usually doesn't have much time go through the specifics. Also, most of the resumes look more or less the same if you start reading thoroughly. So what distinguishes you is how much you can convey to a third person in one glance. However a crucial point that one needs to keep in mind is - The third person may be an IITian or may be not. So your resume needs to be optimally elaborate and detailed. Good at glance and not boring with details.
Round 2

Test

Interview Experience
I screwed up GS's test but I guess my CPI and resume lured them to shortlist me for interview.Various tests aim at identifying different skill sets. And each skill set testing needs different approach and different preparation material and style. Also, not all tests are actually looking for excellent performers. So sometimes you might be surprised to see not so good performers being preferred over the best ones
Round 3

HR Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Walk me through your resume
  • Question 2: discussion on my CPI, future plans and about work and culture at GS.
Round 4

Technical Interview

Interview Questions
  • Question 1: Discussion about a course Project related to guaranteed funds.
  • Question 2: How good am I at programming?
  • Question 3: Questions on Fourier Transform and Fixed points.
  • Question 4: Efficient algorithms on calculating Fibonacci’s Sequence.
  • Question 5: Different efficient ways to implement product and summation of n numbers. And limitations
  • Question 6: Find integer solutions of x^y=y^x.
Interview Tips
Keep calm during all tests. No need to panic after seeing unfavourable results. It's just the beginning of an entirely new world. For preparation, begin well in advance. Take as light load as possible in your placement semester. Talk to seniors and the placed ones about the preparation style for various skill sets. There are several great books on most of the skill set, and just like JEE if you spend quality time on a book on a particular skill set you are likely to do well.For your core jobs preparation, you need to revise your basic concepts and prepare specifically for various areas that you are mostly interested in. For example, in EE, you can have a look at various job roles - system designing, power systems, device and circuits, communication, computer vision and image processing etc, which companies have come in the past for what kind of roles. And what were there expectations from the candidates.
Skills

Skills Tested

    General Tips
    There are many things that I would like to convey to the students regarding the placement process.On the preparation side, one must give his best - visit websites, read blogs, attend presentations and various related sessions, ask seniors who have been placed, talk to anyone who you think can provide some help. These practices will give you enormous data - and your job is to filter and use it wisely,at your own discretion. Read relevant material from books and internet,practice problems and tests, do mock interviews and GDs with your friends,prepare your resume well - in short – do what is to be done. Depending on jobprofiles that you target, the preparation keeps varying, ask around and workhard.With that being said, I would like to say that placement is not simply aboutmerit - independent of whether you appreciate this fact or not. Variouscompanies value compatibility over the merit of the student (which isquite logical thing to do!) and sometimes you may under-qualify and sometimes over-qualifyon those standards - and rarely will you be just at an optimal level.Consequently, many results(in fact most, to be even more precise all except one)will not go in your favour - either accept them or challenge them (if you thinkyou have been denied of something that you truly deserve) but never loseyour heart - this is simply a welcome song to the real world. In the longrun, this short and (most likely a difficult and) tough experience willprove to be one of the most memorable and a great learning experience.In a nut shell "Keep Calm and Give your Best! - Karm karte raho, fal kichinta mat karo."

    Interview Process
    Test Interview Interview Interview
    Round 1

    Test

    Duration
    180 Minutes
    No. of Questions
    60+60+60 questions
    Test Sections
    • Section 1: Mathematics
    • Section 2: Algorithms
    • Section 3: Computer Networks
    Interview Experience
    1. It was 3 hours test with three 'subjective' sections of one hour each.
    2. The first section was mathematics, comprising of Probability Statistics and Linear Algebra. Apparently, one of the sum was from one of the previous IMO papers. All the sums were more or less pretty theoretical and high level.
    3. The second section was algorithms, which is where I performed best, since I was taking the Data Structures and Algorithms course that semester.
    4. The third section was on computer networks which was mainly targeted at the CSE junta and not meant for us.
    Round 2

    Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: Resume-based questions
    • Question 2: Intern-based questions
    • Question 3: General questions on courses and my interest in finance
    • Question 4: Why are gold prices increasing and why are US treasury bonds still valuable?
    • Question 5: Discussion about Euro crisis
    Interview Experience
    1. It lasted for 20-30 minutes.
    2. This was my first interview of the day. It started off with a discussion of my resume, especially of my work at DB, and the interviewer even told me about how they do something quite similar in their team.
    3. He asked me about my courses and my interest in finance.
    4. The discussion then moved towards finance and we discussed questions like why are gold prices increasing and why are US treasury bonds still valuable and also about the Euro crisis.
    5. I call it a discussion because although it would start off with a question the interviewer would pose for me, very soon it would end up being an interesting discussion with each of us putting in our opinion and views and new facts. It was a very jovial interview.
    Round 3

    Interview

    Interview Questions
    • Question 1: Advanced level questions on C++
    • Question 2: If you are asked to play a game where you toss a fair coin again and again until you get consecutive heads and win Re. 1 or you get consecutive tails and lose and quit, how much will you be willing to pay to play this game?
    Interview Experience
    1. This was supposed to be a more technical interview to test my coding and mathematical skills.
    2. The interviewer asked me if I knew C++. I told him that I had done it back in my high school days, so might be a little rusty but will definitely try.
    3. He started off with an easy question on derived classes and their objects. Soon the code became more and more complicated, involving abstract classes, virtual functions, copy constructors etc.
    4. However, thankfully I was able to answer at every step, sometimes of course with a little nudge from him.
    5. Later in second question, he modified the question by making it an unfair coin. He taught me how to draw a state diagram, and using that I was easily able to reach the answer.
    6. After this I had left for the BCG ordeal so had been unable to come back for my third interview that they kept calling me for. I finally came back to meet them after giving my 1st round interview at Credit Suisse. I was asked about my job preferences and if I was really interested in joining GS.
    7. After I assured them that GS is indeed my dream company they let me know that all of them were pretty impressed with me and in other ways subtly hinted at the good news. When I came out of that room, my prior two interviewers came over to chat with me. We moved into another room and had a long chat about their plans for the India office of GS, the new teams they were planning to build etc. One of them gave me his business card, asking me to give him a call if I had any more questions.
    Round 4

    Interview

    Skills

    Skills Tested

      General Tips
      1. I really wanted to get into Goldman Sachs so I started reading the Financial Express on the side, and practicing probability problems from “50 challenging problems in probability”, a book suggested by one of the alums in investment banking. <br />
      2. The preparation for CAT had taken care of my aptitude test preparation so I did not have to worry much about that any longer. <br />
      3. I didn't have to worry about Group Discussions because not too many companies open for BSBE conducted GD’s. <br />
      4. I had left the last week after my endsems ended and before placements began for the main preparation for HR although I did make a list of questions and jotted down some points for the answers of each of them beforehand.<br />
      5. Initially, I would practice around 3 case studies a week, with my batchmates in GH, in a group of 4. We would meet at night whenever possible and each one would solve one case study each while another person posed as the interviewer, usually from the book “Case in Point” but sometimes also from other sources like the IIMA Case Book, the Wharton Business School Case book and the cases that had come in previous years’ problems which we found in SPO’s Case book. <br />
      6. In later days, especially during endsems, we took to meeting in mixed random groups among the BCG shortlisted people for similar case practice sessions, and I ended up having done around 20 case studies before placements started. <br />
      7. Once the shortlist for Goldman Sachs came out, which was 2 days before the placements, I also read up a little on dynamic programming which I knew nothing about. <br />
      8. In the last week before placements I structured my HR answers and learnt by heart the main points so that I don’t miss any when answering, but not the language because I believed spontaneity is a must to excel in HR interviews.

      1. Apps and technical ­ objective
           Apps completely tough.
          Totally 35 aps questions were asked and only 35 minutes were given for it :P:P
           Also, technical questions were nothing but c ­ aps
      Only three problems were easy. Technical was easy.
      2. Subjective:
          1.Find the two non repeating elements in an array with other elements repeated two       
             times(even times) exactly in linear time .
          2.String matching algorithm.
      I just wrote the kmp algorithm in words.
      Usually for few companies and pep exams, Career net only sets papers for written. Their apps 
      questions will be tough. Only by luck i entered the next round :)
      Round 2

      Group Discussion

      Interview Experience
      Second round:
      Group Discussion
      There was a situation given. The group is stuck in a storm in the middle of their travel in some 
      ranchi lake.
      We have only few materials left with us for rescue :) match stick , chocolate bars , air pillow, 
      sleeping bag, water filter, wine bottle.
      We need to prioritise these things and just discuss with the group about out prioritisation :) It 
      was fine. This company wanted us to speak that's all.They eliminated only one in this round(who 
      didn't even speak a word).But do remember other management companies are not so.
      Round 3

      Technical Interview

      Interview Experience
      Technical Interview :
      Interview  was  pretty  easy  with  simple  questions  ,  but  don  know  why  they  were  not 
      satisfied with my answers and I could not go ahead from this round in Goldmann Sachs .
      Before they could ask me any question , I was asked to tell about myself . And I continued it for 
      about 15 min :P . I explained my personal skills,programming skills etc . Pretty long speech it 
      was !!!
      Well below are the few questions which they asked me .
      1. What are functional pointers ?? Why and where we use it  ??
      2. Design  a  class  to  show  different  shapes  using  inheritance  and  various  other  OOPS 
      concepts . I explained the concept of abstract class for shapes . Then he asked me by using 
      which access specifier you will inherit the abstract class ??
      3. An easy puzzle or aps based  ­ How many times a hour and a minute hand intersects or 
      overlaps in a particular day of 24 hours ?
      4. He  gave  me  a  small  job  .  Now,  am  a  road  Contractor  and  I  have  to  meet  CM  for 
      discussing about a project for laying a highway road from his/her home to chennai .  And, as a 
      contractor , I have to do a requirement analysis regarding the project and discuss directly to the 
      Interviewer ( who is now the CM ).
      5. Well, they did not ask anything from my area of interest . So, I asked them to test me 
      from my area and so, they asked me a question. It goes like this ­ You are given a huge file with 
      lot of words , spaces and line breaks. I need to separated them as an array of strings having 
      fixed length size of 60, but you should not break any word
