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.

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

    Interview Details

    First round was on campus (target school). Second round was in the actual office. The interview was not as technical as I thought it would be, though it should have been more technical. The actual job required you to have a solid understanding of accounting and finance prior to internship.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    I had my first interview on campus because I attend a target school. The interview was between me and two CFA's working in the Philadelphia office. Because I am not a business major and was only a sophomore the interview was mostly behavioral. They asked a few questions about my knowledge of the markets, but it was basically just what a few indices had finished at the previous week. The most important questions were why I wanted to work in finance and more specifically why I wanted to work in Private Wealth Management. They also asked what I thought Goldman looks for in an intern. There were also a few questions about whether or not I thought I could handle the rigors of the internship, and they asked how long I thought they worked each day.

    Interview Questions
    • Probably why finance if not prepared with a sound answer.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    I received an email inviting me to interview with the Litigation department in New York about a week before the date. I flew out, and met directly with executives in the department, no HR people involved. There were two interviews with three people in each. It was strictly behavioral and resume-based.

    Interview Questions
    • The interviewers started out talking a lot about their positions and responsibilities. The questions themselves were pretty basic, about my strengths. The interviewers also asked me to go into detail about facts on my resume.   Answer Question
