    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in January 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very well structured and organised. The focus is more on attitude, capability and interpersonal skills. They do not spend much time in asking technical questions unless the interviewee pushes the conversation in that direction.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in August 2008.

    Interview Details

    The selection process comprised of numerous rounds beginning with a written test which tested logical reasoning, attention to detail and English proficiency skills. If the candidate passed this step, the next stage was the HR interview followed by an interview with a manager from one of the teams within the firm and lastly a final interview with a senior VP. At each stage there was elimination and only the selected candidates who got through all rounds made it to the final round and then ultimately got selected for the job.

    I wanted compensation for stock options too, so was given some stock in compensating what I was losing at my previous company, although with lesser stock than I had.
    Their offer was final & didn't seem open for any negotiations, take it or leave it.
