    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was hired for their CRMA division. It took a month for them to get back after I submitted my application. The entire interview process took 2 months, mostly due to the availability of interviewers. I waited for exactly 2 weeks to hear back after the final interview.
    The overall interview process was very positive. Needless to say that everyone was very professional. There were 8 half-hour back-to-back interviews, all conducted over the phone. There were some typical behavioral questions including tell me about yourself, tell me a time when you had a heavy workload, tell me about a project at your latest internship... etc. You need to know your resume very well. I don't have a very strong finance background, so they didn't ask very advanced finance questions, though there were still some basic technical questions such as what is credit risk, how would you analyze a company's credit risk, what role does debt plays in credit risk analysis, etc.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Fairly rigorous process that involved meetings, a one on one interview, followed by a super-day set of 3-4 interviews conducted over the course of a few hours. Some of the super-day interviews were on-on-one, while others had 2-3 people on a panel-style interview. The process finished with a tele-conference interview with executives in New York

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had my resume on file and called me in for an interview. Had two 30 minute interviews where typical behavioral questions were asked as well as some questions specifically about finance. I sent in follow up thank yous to each interviewer. It has been 4 months since the interview and Goldman has not given me any response. It would be nice if they would at least say they decided not to hire.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed about 10 times, all over the phone. Asked a lot of questions about abilities with Microsoft office suite, projects that I had worked on in College that would relate to work experience, and situational questions. Make sure you have at least 3 or 4 stories to tell when they ask questions like..."Tell me about a time when..."

    Tax Operations Team Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Goldman Sachs in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    This was one of the most depressing interviews I have ever had.

    It consisted of three interviews with two people in each all back to back. Each of the interviewers seemed worn out and miserable. Each of them acted as if they did not want to be there. Immediately after a few minutes of talking to the first interviewer I knew that this was not the place or job for me.

    The questions seemed extremely specific for the experience desired in the position (at lease 2 years).

    The interview experience overall felt very negative from my end and I am happy to say I did not receive an offer. I cannot say as to whether this was me or them, but I can say that if the people that interviewed me are the same people that I would have to work with day to day, this is a job to steer clear of.
