    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    I was scheduled for a "phone screen," and 10 minutes before I got a call that HR messed up and they were actually on campus. I ended up rushing to the career center to meet with two alumni from my school. Due to the hectic nature of the meeting, I was off my game. It has been over two weeks and I haven't heard anything from them. People who interviewed with Goldman Sachs the same day for IB and S&T have already heard if they were invited for a Superday.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    First interview was over the phone and the second is on-campus (Goldman Sachs). I was told that my phone interview was unconventional in the sense that I was not being interviewed by a recruiter, but someone on the team I would potentially be working with. I expected behavioral questions, but I was asked technical questions instead. Second interview will consist of three consecutive 30-minute interviews, so be prepared!

    Interview Questions
    • None. Be sure to research the company, they want to hear individuals that are enthusiastic about becoming a part of their team. Be knowledgeable in your respective field and be prepared for any behavioral questions. Don't forget to be personable during your conversation, don't make it sound like you're reading from a paper! Follow these tips and you should do just fine.   Answer Question

    Very professional but a little cold. Pushed technicals pretty hard. Standard IBanking checklist of questions, behavioral questions were very much standard without any real surprises. I don't really know what to say beyond that.

    I spoke to contacts within Goldman Sachs before the interview and then had two preliminary interviews. Each one asked questions about my past experiences in the summers and what area I would like to work in in Goldman Sachs. Then I was asked some conceptual questions. Between Java, C, or Python, which programming language would be most efficient and why?

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    Had on-campus interview, which was pretty easy and asked about basic array and string manipulation. Onsite in NJ was pretty difficult as they dove into more difficult algorithmic problems, which I hadn't learned about. It was a very stressful interview in general, and you really need to know in-depth CS concepts to impress your interviewer.
