    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed 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.

    The first round consist of 2 separate interviews, each 20 mins long with 2 interviewers from the operations department. The interview is more behavioral based. They want to find out more about you and see your fit with the position and how you answer their questions. Some qns include why goldman sachs, why ops, what do we do in your opinion, tell me a time where your team had some conflict and how did you resolve it....

    I got into the final round, but I didn't get an offer. The questions are mostly behavior questions. If you mention something, they would have some follow up questions. I think the company's interview process is designed to pick the people they really want. I'd say it's somewhat different than other company's interviews that I've seen. Overall, it was a positive experience and I've learned a lot from the process.
