Operations Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in December 2014.

Interview Details

2 rounds of interviews, the first round was a 2:1 panel and consisted of mainly behavioral, although try not to give the typical answers for Why GS and Why Ops. They hear these answers from 100s of others so try stand out when answering these.

2 days later I was invited to the Final round which consisted of 3 back to back interviews, all behavioral however when I myself mentioned something technical that I had read in the news they did ask follow up questions so make sure you understand anything that you talk about. All in all very friendly and well organised.

I received my offer a week later.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very simple process. You send cv and cover letter. within 2 weeks you'll get a response. You qualify for a first round interview. Which is very competency based. Why GS? Why Ops? strengths and weaknesses.. Core skills examples etc. Then you may qualify for a second round interview. Which is 3x 2 to 1 interviews with reps from ops. Again, very cv based, know your cv by heart. read everything you can about gs. know the share price. the ceo. recent mentions of GS in the news and your opinion on it. make an impact

    Most of the questions were about why I did want to go to Operations and why Goldman Sachs. They expected you to provide many examples on several skills.

    completed the online form and was the invited to two rounds of interviews. All competency based - very simple. Interviews were with VPs and A2 analysts and were all very similar to each to other, after the second interview I just found myself repeating myself. People were very nice. no brain teasers or market based questions. focused on why GS and what skills I had previously shown.
