    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Room with four interviewers, all asked the same set of questions. Felt repetitive and that they had a hard time keeping people in Salt Lake City. Interviewers did not seem genuinely interested in the process. Spoke with some workers while I was waiting for the interview and work culture seemed relaxed but boring.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted a few days later. They flew me out to Salt Lake City and I interviewed with them in person. Nothing they asked was unexpected or a curveball. It was a round robin of four interviews in 30 minute intervals.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online for summer internship position through GS website and through campus careers site. Called to come-in for an on campus interview. 2 back to back 2-on-1 interviews with Associate/VPs. Very friendly yet also serious. It's an "easier" entry to GS but don't think that this would be a path into the firm's other divisions (IBD, Securities i.e.). The interviewers would know if you really are interested in Ops or into somethings else like investment banking. Be humble and candid but also have some emotion.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was 4 back-to-back interviews which were a half hour each. However, the interviews were quite informal and were all behavioral questions. It was a little tiring talking about yourself with 4 different groups of people but it was quite laid back. Luckily I signed up for the interview slot where there was a 45 minute break for lunch so that was nice to have. Otherwise, not a bad process whatsoever.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    I originally met with Goldman for an informational interview on my college campus. I later applied online through my career services at school. About 3 weeks later I got invited to Salt Lake City for a series of interviews that lasted 2 hours in total. The interviews aren't particularly difficult at all. Most of the questions are behavioral or ethical in nature. The interviewers are very friendly so there is no reason to be nervous. Be prepared to answer why you want to work for Goldman, Why Operations, and come up with a few examples of ethical dilemmas you've been through and operation processes you have helped improve in past work (if applicable). Be confident and you will get it. They are more testing your personality than your qualifications.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    Attended information sessions on campus, submitted application online. At the final round, went through four 30-minute interviews. Most of the interviewers were very nice and friendly. All the questions were behavioral so there wasn't really anything unexpected. They seem to like diverse backgrounds but they still want to see that you're passionate about the job and the industry.
