Test Group Discussion Technical Interview Technical Interview Technical Interview Technical Interview
There was a written aptitude test followed by a group discussion and then personal interview.In the written test there were quant questions(easy-medium level) and technical questions mainly from data structures and C/C++ (multiple choice questions). For each section there was a definite period of time alloted.There was also a section where 2 programs were asked-one was to find the angle between hour hand and minute hand , another was on anagrams . Finally an essay type question-"Why do you want to work for Goldman Sachsand why it should hire you"
Group Discussion Topic
Based on an abstract
An abstract of 4-5 pages about the people on a ship which is going to sink. Around 4-5 peoples' personalities were analysed thoroughly. We had to choose a captain and vice captain for the ship at such a critical juncture.
They first asked, 'What is your favorite subject?' I said DS..Then he asked why? Then some questions based on what I answered were asked.He also asked about use of trees in real life scenario..I spoke about data models -hierarchical data model follows tree structure. It was a pretty cool round..I wasn't made to write any code.
He asked me about Polymorphism, Function Overloading Virtual Functions etc. Then I was asked to write a code for a "movie " class . And types of movies are- new , ol, medium levels and then some functions I don't exactly remember. Basically he was checking C++ class concepts.
In the Third Interview,He asked me about the two programs which were asked in the written round.
In the final interview, he asked me about my curriculum , one question on abstract classes and then what do I want in a job, my preferences, etc
- Test your C skills by Kanetkar,
