    Wow all I can say is you walk in and there is no diversification what so ever. My interview was a waste of time as my interviewee made it clear she was way above me in this world. She was arrogant and some what rude. Completely unprofessional.

    Nice people, gorgeous offices. Something about the interviewer was a little off and they kept hammering away at my background and experience to see if I was going to make a mistake or say something wrong. Kind of weird. They also had a skills assessment that I really didn't want to take.

    the position was for an IT executive assistant but the person interviewing me didn't even know what O/S was therefore i got a feeling that this job was not for me. very unprofessional environment.

    The process took 2 days - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Initially, a person from H.R. does a telephone screen and asks you about your work experience. If he/she feels you're good enough then you have a second round with another H.R. person. The three people (all H.R.) that interviewed me seemed laid back and were very upfront with me. I knew I wasn't the right fit for the person they were trying to fill the EA spot for. The one thing I do notice is that since Goldman is such a huge company, the recruiting people work in silos. They don't seem to share resumes with other divisions so it gets quite frustrating to have to go through the "first round" over again.
