Business Analyst Interview

Interview Details

My first interview took place at the Goldman Sachs offices located in downtown Manhattan. The interview was more technical than I anticipated. First they want to get to know character, that part was not difficult as long as you have fair communication skills, after that
most of the questions were regarding programing using c++. I thought the interview went bad but I was invited to the super day which included 3 interviews for one department I was selected for. Each interview was different, one was personality, the second was brain teasers, and the third was programing based.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 months - interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    Well, I found out about the job through campus, the job was designed for me and I really wanted it. I had 3 phone interviews, one with the HR person and 2 with the specialist. They flew me to NYC and it was a great interview with around 8 ppl from different departments. Questions were technical and there was no surprise, they really wanted to know that I actually know what I am talking about..

    Interview Questions
    • Be honest and just hang out, They are really nice and smart people have fun in the interview just as if you were going out for dinner and met some ppl for the first time. if they reject you then it is probably not a good fit for either one of you.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I had to relocate all the way from the Middle East for this Job and I had to be there 15 days after the offer was made, I was not able to finish up personal matters by then. Also, it was not alot of money to uproot myself and go to Utah
    Really, it was family reasons that I could not just leave my family and go...I wish I could take it..it was my dream job..

    Basically walked through my resume and asked about the details when it comes to analysis part. Gave me lots of advice on career since I am still a underclassman. In general, the experience is positive. No technical questions.

    The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Completely string you on. Currently I'm still being strung along. Had about 6 - 1/2 hour interviews and received a call they want to move forward. We started negotiating and offer and she said she'd call me back within the next day or so. A week goes by and nothing. I call them and they say "they really like you, but we're still interviewing." Why tell me we're moving forward with an offer and then string me along with no communication? No thanks anymore.
