Average Interview

Application

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

Interview

very nice and laid back. I went to the office in dallas/ irving texas and had two one on one interviews. After there was a panel that was able to answer out questions. I decided to accept another offer instead, but that was just because I was closer to the other firm

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    Contacted by HR with an on the spot short interview. One more phone interview then a superday. Phone interviews are mostly resume based, nothing unexpected. Superday consists of multiple back to back interviews, 2 interviewers at a time. Superday is very mentally exhausting, interviewers focus on your personality, how you deal with specific situations, and if you're truly motivated to join and contribute the Goldman culture. Some tricky unexpected technicals, but they're just exploring your thought process and your ability to not crack under pressure. Be prepared to go in depth on all of the behavioral questions, they'll follow up simple questions with 10 minutes worth of follow up questions on your answer.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a phone interview in a month. At first just routine questions like why you applied this job, and what other jobs you've applied. He asked me if I have banking background and asked me what investment is. How many barbers do we need in U.S? And he asked me to solve an ODE.

    Interview

    Two technical phone interviews. Started out with basic questions; talk about your resume, yourself, favorite classes etc. Followed with technical questions, mainly programming. Both interviews based on one or two "core" problems. After successfully answering them they asked for finer details on the answers, how to further optimize, confidence intervals, etc

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    I applied online and got an e-mail inviting me for a phone interview. The phone interview was 30 minutes with a member of the team I'd be involved with. The questions were mostly behavioral. They asked about ethical dilemmas, how you work in a team, etc. Two weeks later, I was contacted for a second round interview. They flew me out to Salt Lake City where the interview was only an hour long. I had half hour sessions with two senior members, so four people total. The questions again were mostly behavioral.

    Interview

    I was sent Immediately to "super day".... through networking. 5 interviews in Chicago office 7AM - Noon. Ranged from VPs to new hires. Awesome facility. The experienced professionals were awesome. Younger analysts seemed awkward & overworked. I am not a finance major, so questions were more market based/behavioral based/etc.... Nothing too complex. If you watch the news/follows the WSJ you should be fine understanding the questions.
