Application Details

I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

Interview Details

Applied online and received an e-mail to request an interview. The interviewer went to my same school, so was familiar with the programs and materials I talked about. He was quite nice, but hard to hear. Interviewer just let me talk for about 45 minutes about how I'd solve the problem. He guided me through it and we got to an answer.

    Applied through an campus coordinated program and received a phone call from the recruiter. Initially got a phone call to come into the office for an interview. Interview was one-on-one and mostly behavioral questions rather than technical questions that focused on a potential fit.

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

    Interview Details

    Phone interview started out simple, with basic background questions. Person was extremely friendly. Then they asked why I am interested in Private Wealth with a few follow-up questions that were quite easy. Finally, they ended by asking me to pitch them a stock and why I liked the stock. The interview was so easy-going early on that I let my guard down and was unprepared for the stock idea question. I panicked and said Apple which is a terrible answer to the question. Needless to say, I did not get to the next round.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    The phone interview was very casual. Recruiting director called me to discuss my interest in the position; a week later got a call to come in for final round interviews. A long day of in person interviews--had about 7 different people interview me (there were 2, 2 on 1 sessions) a lot of fit based questions, some questions about market trends and person views on how the economy will shape out in the next few years. Generally, people were very nice; no brain teasers which was nice. They wanted to see how I worked under pressure and in situations of conflict.
