    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    Sent in my resume for the analyst position, was contacted by hr via email fairly quickly to set up a phone interview. I sent back my availability and they responded with the interview date and time within a day. Had the phone interview that same week with a would-be junior team member. He asked typical questions like walk me through your resume and strengths/weaknesses. Two days after I was emailed again by hr to set up an in person interview. Was set up with an interview that same week lasting an hour and a half. Half an hour for each interview. First met with two people, the manager and a team member. Then two more team members right after that, and one more team member after that. Mostly easy going interviews after the first one. Manager was really hard to read and didn't seem very personable.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I had 2 half hour interviews 2-on-1 with one interviewer doing most of the questioning and the other watching intently. Very hard to tell what the silent one was thinking and very nerve racking. Most of the questions were about my past experiences and how I solved problems. The questions that threw me off were the more personal questions like who is my idol. Maybe not the hardest question but I just wasn't expecting it.
