    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    There was a Phone interview, as well as back-to-back in-person interviews with two employees in each interview. With the in-person interviews, the groups interviewing were increasingly senior with each interview, as well as increasingly hard to impress. Expect each interview to get harder and harder, although this is a good way of working your way up to the final interview and getting warmed up rather than doing it right away. Amazing company to work for, and even more amazing people to work with!

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    I easily had 7+ interviews. My original interview was on-campus at the university I attend. A lot of it was pretty unorganized. When I received callback interviews, I was informed of the interview less than a week in advance (which was difficult since most of my interviews were in NYC and I was 4+ hours away from NYC and still had class). All of my expenses were paid, however. Which was pretty cool.

    I had decent qualifications to be employed in the tech industry. The tech industry pays better, has way better fringe benefits (i.e. flexible hours, way less hours, no pressure to work on the weekends) and it seemed to be easy to make the transition from tech to finance if I later decided I wanted that.

    Operations Analyst position. Questions were all behavioral and it really depends on your interviewer. Two back to back interviews on campus. I am an engineer so I was actually asked to debate about the shale boom with one of my interviewers.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Position in Operations in the NYC office; applied through on-campus recruiting, entire process was two half-hour interviews in-person, each with two current employees. Everyone was extremely friendly and responded well to enthusiasm, especially in regards to lesser-known aspects of Goldman's work. Received a call a few weeks later with an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too out there, but demonstrating a knowledge of the company more broadly is definitely a good idea. I spent a large portion of my interview talking about how impressed I was by the 10,000 Women campaign and thus by the company as a whole. Make sure to look through their website a fair amount pre-interview.   Answer Question

    I applied online - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I heard from them about 2 months after I applied. The first process was a 30 min phone interview, mainly behavioral questions. Questions focused on leadership abilities and personality. Second stage, was the super-day interview. It involved 2 back-to-back interviews. A mix of behavioral and technical questions. They were quite friendly.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview with human resources led to an on site superday. Superday consisted of three interviews, each interviewer seemed most interested in why I was interested in finance instead of what I knew. One interviewer kept texting during the interview which was rude and distracting...may have been intentional. Otherwise, no one tried to upset me or test my emotional reactions in any way.

    Interview Details

    I applied last minute the the SLC Diversity day at Goldman, and was accepted a few days later via e-mail. After booking I was brought to the HQ with about 20 other students. We were spoken to by several current employees, had a mixer lunch and learned about the company and its corporate culture. The next day we went went in for interviews, I interviewed with three different departments, Operation Investment Management, and Credit Risk. It was 2on1 interviews, mostly behavioral questions and resume questions. Some market-based questions were asked, but it was all very casual. I was accepted by one department a month afterwards, and am still going through the interviewing process with the other two departments.
