    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I got this interview opportunity through the on campus recruitment process of my university. It was a face to face interview by a current employer. No behavior question. The interview started with one cs question and one finance concept question, both are easy, and then there is a brain-teaser question.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Currently in final round interviews for PWM. Phone interview, then campus rep interview, and now a super day at the office. Mostly behavioral questions about why PWM or why Goldman along with questions about why you would be a good asset. They seem to be looking for the best fit for the team more than technical knowledge.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    Applied through my school and the GS website. First round interview with two PWMs from NYC office. Interview was 30min long. It was pretty informal, and went more as a conversation. I prepared for technical questions, but the questions were definitely more along the lines of why PWM, why would you be good at it, and some pretty standard behavioral (tell me about a time you failed, etc).
