Had several on-site interviews and met with MDs and VPs one on one. The team was very friendly and genuinely cared about what your previous work/ educational experience have been like. Overall, very positive and enjoyable experience.

    all behavioral questions. first through school career center, then at nyc office. i think i was too nervous going in, and it was really not necessary. the intense financial knowledge interview might happen in another department, but legal dept just wants to make sure youre smart and personable. overall, i liked the people and office there.

    Interview Details

    Applied online for a legal analyst position. Was called in for a series of interviews, although I was a bit late in the process as it seems they hire mainly from their class of interns.

    Submitted resume through university career services, received call back about scheduling a phone interview. Had it with two people - very general questions, did focus a bit though on why I was particularly interested in a financial services firm and what aspects of the market fascinated me.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    3 1:1 interviews. Very straightforward, asked me general questions about my resume, why I wanted to work there. I really enjoyed the whole process. Unfortunately there was only 1 opening, and they invited ~10 people for a superday so the numbers were kind of stacked against me. Great learning experience overall.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    It was a fairly straight forward interview process. The first day, I met with my would-be manager and the woman in the position I would be filling. A simple fit interview based off of my resume, no curveballs and both of them were very nice and straightforward about what the job entailed.

    The second round I was supposed to meet with three MDs but one had to cancel. Again, a simple fit interview, a lot of "tell me about yourself" basic questions-- to be honest I'm not sure they had even seen my resume until I entered the room (and I can't blame them, I would imagine as an MD you don't have a whole lot of time to pore over an undergraduate resumes). Again, both of them were pleasures to talk with-- I was able to laugh and joke with them the whole time.

    They called and said I had gotten the job the next day. Unfortunately the timing/opportunity wasn't right, but for all the clout and prestige attached to the Goldman brand, this was the most straight forward, laid back, and even (at times) enjoyable series of interviews I've ever been to.
