Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed 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.

    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.

    First round of interviews with 2 groups of interviewers, the first one was to talk about yourself, the basic fit questions. The second one asked slightly more technical stuff about investment banking as I came from an engineering background.

    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 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.
