    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by HR to set up a phone interview. After the 30 minute phone interview I received a call and an email inviting me to a superday. Met with several interviewers for 30 minutes each. Process ran smoothly and though more preparation was required, the behavioral questions were pretty standard.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    The overall interview process took longer than usual as the position is related to a global setup. It first started with a phone interview with HR, then a video conference from their local branch office.
    This company culture focuses on their people and would like to hire the best from all candidates.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in May 2008.

    Interview Details

    Company was interviewing at school, so I submitted a resume and cover letter to apply. I got approved for a first round interview on campus with two current analysts. They asked for stock recommendations and I walked them through the ideas in detail. They had many follow up questions, so required thorough understanding of the ideas. This was followed up with similar interviews with five different portfolio managers and analysts at their offices.
