    The process took a dayinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Used campus recruiting to get interview. Four rounds of interviews in one day, with 2 or more interviewers in each round. Interviewers were friendly but straightforward with their questions. They seemed to prefer concise answers.

    The people I encountered seemed pretty down-to-earth, and the culture/environment was surprisingly low-key (as opposed to the stereotype of cut-throat, isolated, and fast-paced environments associated with some firms).
