    Technology Analyst Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    First Round: 2:1 interview on campus, roughly half an hour in length. I was asked about my understanding of OOP concepts, as well as my experience with programming. I was asked to write a short code to reverse a string in c++. Pretty straight forward, but they were looking for detailed answers. I am not a Comp Sci student, so there were some questions I couldn't answer right away, but the interviewers gave hints that were helpful. They didn't waste any time going through my resume or asking any behavioral questions.

    Second Round (Superday): I had 3 half-hour 1:1 interviews with members of one department. Some other candidate had additional interviews with 2 or 3 departments, 3 interviews for each. Interviews seemed to be more behavioral in my case. All three of my interviewers focused on what I hoped to get out of the internship, and surprisingly little on what I know.

    My guess is that the first round was to check for knowledge, and the second round was more focused on fit.

    Technology Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and got an on campus interview which was just a 30 minute one on one interview with one of their associates. No technical questions, just a bunch of behavioral ones. Seemed like a conversation. I didn't get asked to a second round so I guess I wasn't good enough. They do really do it based on personality and how well you fit.

    Technology Analyst Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Handed my resume to some recruiters at a tech conference earlier in October 2012 and got called up for superday for the first accelerated process mid December. They flew me to New York and I was brought to a conference room with about 15 other candidates. We were briefed and handed our interview schedules for the day (which division they put you in etc). I only have one division scheduled with 2 interviews, whereas I know some people who got up to 9 interviews.

    So I had my 2 rounds of interviews each with 2 interviewers. They were really nice people and half the interview was me asking questions about the job. They got me to introduce myself a little and talk about my coding experience/ latest coding project. Then they asked a math/logic problem and a coding question. Also expect the standard Why Goldman Sachs question.

    I got called about 2 working days later with an offer, which I accepted.

    Summer Technology Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had an interview with GS at an engineering conference and I was called back for a second interview. The interview was onsite in NYC and they paid for all my travel expenses.

    When I arrived at Goldman Sachs, I was told that I would be participating in a "Technology Superday". They took me to a conference room where I was with about 15-20 other students and they gave each of us a folder with our schedules for the day. Each person had a different schedule and a different number of interviews. I personally was scheduled to have 9 interviews which was the maximum I could get. Each interview was 30 mins long and we had two breaks in between. 6 of my interviews were in NYC but 3 of them were in Jersey City so they provided me with a ferry ticket and I had to take the ferry on my own and get to the other building.

    It was a very stressful day because there were many back to back interviews. My day started around 8 am and I was done at 4:30 pm.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Gave them my resume at a career fair on campus and then they called me a day later to ask me to come in for an interview. The interview was conducted by one of their employees who had previously held that intern position and he started by talking about himself and his experience at Goldman Sachs. He then asked me about myself, why I was interested in them, and then gave me a paper with questions on it that mostly tested my memory of how to use Java.
