Technology Analyst - Asset Management Technology Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

Interviewed at Goldman Sachs

Interview Details – Submitted resume online. Received a follow-up email inviting me to a super day in New York. You receive a schedule when you walk in of the teams you are interviewing with. I was only slated to interview with one team. Unfortunately, the position had nothing to do with my qualifications. I studied Business Information Systems which focuses on higher level Java and C# and was asked questions that a computer science major could answer.

Interview Question – Write a recursive algorithm in a language of your choice that sums Fibonacci numbers of a set terminating at a given value, N.   Answer Question

IMD - Asset Management Summer Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Salt Lake City, UT

I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in January 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online through my school's career services. Had initial on-campus interview. Two days later I was called and informed that I was invited to the Salt Lake office for super day interviews.

After arriving in Salt Lake we were assigned first round morning interviews. I had 5 morning interviews with different teams (FI, FE, AIMS). They sent us to lunch and told us that if we passed the first round we would get a callback interview for the afternoon for whatever teams liked us. I received a callback for two separate teams on AIMS.

The afternoon interviews were viedoconference interviews with executives in NY. All questions were behavioral or market based. They only asked you about something technical if you brought it up in the conversation.

Interview Question – What is the difference between a mutual fund and a hedge fund?

What is a question that you wish I had asked you and how would you answer that question?

Summer Analyst Asset Management Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Salt Lake City, UT

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

Interview Details – Sent in resume and heard back 2 weeks later.

First round was a phone interview. The interview was half behavioral and half market based. Asked for a fixed income pick, stock pitch, and market prediction. The interviewer was professional and curious but not warm. Be aware of current market information and policies affecting the banking industry.

Houston, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in December 2013.

Interview Details – Got the first round phone interview. Very few fit questions, mostly technical. Hard interview. They were in New York but I expected them at Houston time so got an unexpected early phone call. I was very nervous and it didn't go well. Of course, didn't get into second round.
