    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    1 phone interview, 1 super-day. Had to interview with 3 groups (2 people in each). Generally pretty laid back -mostly behavioral - but that was probably because I was interviewing as a sophomore. No brainteasers.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    standard culture fit question, probability questions. Brain teasers are fair game for all. Because Goldman interviews a somewhat broad swath of students, questions during on campus interviews tend to focus far more on past decision-making. You absolutely must be able to articulate why you want to work at Goldman and why whatever division you're gunning for is the right fit for you. Teamwork and ethics are highly prized at Goldman and using authentic anecdotes to demonstrate that you exhibit an orientation of inclusion and a natural tendency to do "what's right" will be viewed favorably.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    Overall friendly experience. First round was mostly behavioral questions and going over resume. Superday was also largely the same with some more creative questions here and there, but nothing out of the ordinary. Interviews depend largely on division.

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    Applied through on-campus, 2-on-1 interviewed for CRMA on-campus with an associate and VP, then SuperDay after a month in New York with 3 - 30 mins rounds of 2-on-1 interview. Very professional but still conversational. Questions mainly revolved around my resume and past experiences, why risk?, why Goldman Sachs?, would I want to switch to a revenue generating division if given a choice?

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly behavioral and fit questions -- How does GS generate revenue? How would you evaluate the risk of extending credit to a startup firm? How would that analysis change for the same startup after 3 years in existence?   Answer Question
