    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs (Dallas, TX) in February 2012.

    Interview

    My first interview was by phone. It lasted about 30 minutes. I was asked a few questions about my background and also some technical questions. I did pretty well by being straightforward and substantial. I was invited to come in and had a 5 hour interview with different people. Some questions related to the overall economy, my educational background, why I wanted to work for Goldman, how I could add value and my long term goals. Questions became more specific about ms excel, databases, etc.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Applied online, was invited to the office. Had four interviews. Was told that I would be contacted in the next couple weeks. One of the gents was not very personable, looked angry and not interested to be at the interview. I found the whole process to be interesting, the building is large and amazing. I would have preferred the New York office.
