    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT) in November 2009.

    Interview

    There was a 3 person interview where you meet managers from different departments. The first two interviews went extremely well with a positive outcome. The problem was the third interview with a very mean and bitter women. The entire interview she would not look at me and instead focused on her team outside her office. I felt as if I was just a bother for her to be dealing with. There was a follow-up call, but I declined to proceed further.

    Interview

    The online application was really long, and the word limit on the cover letter made it really challenging. I was told that there was only going to be a behavioral interview but they gave me a case study during the first round interview, which caught me by surprise.

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in October 2009.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by two people together for 30 minutes. They were really nice and I felt that they were interested to getting to know the junior people they brought in for interviews. Most of the questions were behavioral, and a large portion was about my personaility and teamwork spirits. I am a foreign student, and they specifically asked me about my experience in adapting to the American culture. They were also very open and honest to the questions I asked.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in October 2008.

    Interview

    Had one interview with one young analyst and one experienced analyst. Asked "why are you interested in our company and what can you bring?" types of questions. Seemed to be looking for people that didn't stand out and didn't have too much of a unique personality, judging by my friends' rejections as well.
