Interview Details

Process took approximately months- applied in March and didn't hear back from them until mid May. Received an email notifying me of their desire to have phone interview. Interview consisted of 3 different phone interviews with members in different departments. Each asked questions about resume and what I knew about their individual department and why it was a fit for me.

    It was a phone interview. We set up a time and the guy was going to interview me forgot to call. So I sent him an email to reschedule and he called right after he got my email. There were behavioral and technical questions. But the questions were simple.

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    My experience with their interview process has been very unpleasant to say the least. It consisted of so many interviews which was totally fine, however the unpleasant part was waiting for the team to make a decision which never happened in my case. It may take months before they tell you that they decided not to fill the position. This happened to me twice, the first time it took them 5-6 months to let me know that they decided not to hire experienced individuals, the second time around 2-3 months but after too many follow-ups most of which were not even acknowledged. I find this so disrespectful on their part and it shows me that they don’t have any respect for the candidates' time and plans and I don’t understand why they post a position if they are not sure. In my opinion, being Goldman Sachs, they know that no matter how they treat people there will still be so many candidates applying with them and so apparently they don’t feel the need to respect candidates. As an experienced skilled professional, I don’t see this as a good sign for a company I want to develop my career in and I would not apply with this company again unless I know that they have changed their hiring process.
    The interviews (I had around 30), follow similar pattern. They introduce themselves, then ask you to walk them through your resume, then ask some behavioral and more technical questions (mostly very similar) and then allocate the last 5 minutes to your questions. I enjoyed the interviews and received very positive feedbacks, however I think the team in SLC office cannot make up their mind on their hiring policies and I am sure they don’t realize how hard and unfair this can be on candidates.
