Application

I applied online – interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

Interview

The day consisted of four separate interviews, with two people in each interview. Each interview was about 30 minutes long, and the interviews were back-to-back (just over two hours straight). About 5 minutes of questions were allowed at the end of each interview. Interviewers were polite but guarded -- it was not readily apparent if answers were correct or acceptable.

    Interview

    Applied through my school for an on campus interview. I was interviewed by 2 MDs for 30 minutes. Mostly behavioral questions about resume and choice of university/major. There were some questions about current markets in order to gage my interest in finance. There was also a couple of technical questions. I thought the interview had went well, but I received an email a couple of weeks later stating that I was not selected for a second interview.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs (Boston, MA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online. Was contacted by a representative about a month later and notified that I had been selected for a first round on campus interview. Was interviewed by two Goldman employees working in the private wealth management division. The interview lasted thirty minutes and started out with behavioral questions and got more technical towards the end. Interviewers asked some challenging technical questions on the Fed and recent price changes in certain stocks.

    Interview Questions

    • Mostly behavioral. A few technical questions on recent Federal Reserve activity, what stocks I follow (including price changes, current price) and recent market events.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Accelerated process. Initial interview was 30 minutes over the phone. Superday took place in their Jersey City Office and consisted of 2 30 minute interviews (1:1 and 2:1). Pretty much all behavioral / fit questions. Highly recommend reaching out to employees before the interview process.

    Interview

    Should be on site interview but changed to phone interview one day before the interview. Sharp people from strategy team ask few questions about background and tech interview. Really tough since I do not prepare enough for that. So I have to say this team if really for smart guys. Heard only one guy from Princeton got the offer last year.

    The employees who do the interviews were extremely nice. They want you to perform well. I had interviews for three different divisions on the same day: IMD, Credit Risk, and Operations. The Credit Risk interview was the most technical, they asked for knowledge of the markets, knowledge of debt covenants, financial ratios, BS, IS, CFS, etc.
