Difficult Interview

Operational Risk Management & Analysis Internship/Credit Risk Management & Advisory Internship Interview

Operational Risk Management & Analysis Internship/Credit Risk Management & Advisory Internship
New York, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in February 2012.

Interview Details – I got invited to the conference/information session, met with several employees in different division and also some of my interviewers. Had my first interview for the Op Risk, got called back for the final that evening and was offered to interview for the Credit risk program via phone, made it to the final round for that position. On the super day had 12 interviews (2:1) in total for the both positions (6 each).

After the final round, I didn't hear back from them until 1.5months after for the Op risk and 2.5months after for the Credit risk. Found out that they were not extending any offer to me for either position

Interview Question – How do you determine the risk profile of a company?   View Answer

Difficult Interview

Operations Analyst Summer Internship Interview

Operations Analyst Summer Internship

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in July 2010.

Interview Details – Don't try to fake yourself, it won't get you too far even if you get the job.
They are looking for the right person who can fit into their own culture.

First stage I did a one to one interview with a VP from the department.

Second stage did three one to one interviews with VPs.

It is not particularly harsh but clearly they are looking for some specific qualities in candidates.

Be honest.
