    I applied online - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    Pretty basic interview, nothing too crazy. Behavioral type questions for the most part, and like 2 technical questions. Applied online, and made it to superday, now just waiting to hear results in the next few days. They will grill you on your resume, so be on point.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    2 hour interview - first round with 2 people second round with the hiring region's manager. First round went great with typical questions. Second round went terribly as I was being interviewed for my technical experience and she didnt know anything about DBs. They were implementing a new data warehouse and I attempted to prove my knowledge on the matter she informed me I was being abrasive. I guess don't be smarter than the interviewer

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    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.
