Application Details

I applied online – interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

Interview Details

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.

    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.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    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.
