    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Goldman Sachs in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had my resume on file and called me in for an interview. Had two 30 minute interviews where typical behavioral questions were asked as well as some questions specifically about finance. I sent in follow up thank yous to each interviewer. It has been 4 months since the interview and Goldman has not given me any response. It would be nice if they would at least say they decided not to hire.

    Application Details

    interviewed at Goldman Sachs in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was two 30 minute interviews, almost completely behavioral and to make sure you have an interest in financial markets. Was macro level discussion on current world issues, and a discussion of the yield curve and situational questions on how it would shift based on occurrence.

    Interview Questions
    • Stock pitch or investment idea. Wasn't very structured, just to gauge your understanding of valuation variables and how they can be interpreted.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Very long--met with over eight people all in groups of two each. They asked similar questions and apparently had to all be unanimous in order to get hired. They were nice, and it was a good team.

    Interview Questions
    • What is an example of something that went wrong with a project. How did you react?   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Pay was very low compared to other jobs, and expected workweek was 60-70 hours. With those dynamics, I'd be making 50% less than other jobs in the area.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interviewer was from NY, and she was very short with me during the interview process. The first question she asked was, what research have you done on the job position? I had read over the job description, and looked into Goldman Sachs as a company and at the Salt Lake location, but I couldn't give her specifics as to what I would be doing. She became very abrupt with me after that, asked a few general questions and didn't really let me know specifically what they needed out of candidates for the position. Later I found out that the position is more of an accounting role helping prepare financial statements for quarterly reports. It was an unpleasant interview to say the least.
