I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in February 2012.
Interview Details – I had two interviewers, both were VPs of IBD. One of them was friendly and easy to talk to but the other interviewer was aloof at best and seemed largely disinterested. It started off with the usual "walk me through your resume" and was a mix of fit and technical questions. For the technical questions, they asked me to explain LBOs since the work experience I had in my resume involved them. They also asked me what investments/projects should I pursue and how I would explain to my boss what a good one would be.
Interview Question – How does an LBO work? Would you rather finance an acquisition with a debt/equity split of 70/30 or 90/10? Why? View Answer

Interview Details – I haven't yet completed the interview process--I began with a 20-minute phone interview, and will soon take part in a 3-hour interview in-office with the other applicants for the same job. I'm not sure how the 3-hours of interviews will be structured, but I heard from a current analyst that VPs from the division will interview each applicant as a group for one part of the interview. During the phone interview, I didn't have to answer any questions about the job I was applying for, or the company, and my interviewer was very easy to talk to.

Interviewed at Goldman Sachs
Interview Details – I went through three rounds of interviews here, one on campus, and two super days. The on campus was the most aggressive, with the interviewers questioning every conclusion I came to and answering phone calls during the interview. However this was typical of some on campus interviews. The superdays were divided up between technical and behavioral interviews. However I the interviewers were quick to abandon their scripts if they found something more interesting to talk about.
