Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in February 2015.

Interview

First round, one 2-1 skype interview. Mostly behavioral. Called back for super day at NY offices. A bit disorganized in the morning where no one greeted us for the interviews until 20 minutes after our scheduled arrival time (8 candidates were brought in). Had five 1-1 interviews spread across 4 hours (more people being interviewed than interviewers). After interviews we waited a while because one person was scheduled after everyone else finished their interviews. Called names of us four who advanced and brought us to another room. Afternoon consisted of conversations with senior management. Was weird because they made it sound like having additional questions in the afternoon was bad. Good interview experience, nice people but process could be more organized.

    All of the questions are behavior related. They had a question list and just chose some from it. Such as:
    1. Introduce yourself
    2. Why you choose us?
    3. Your teamwork experience
    4. Your leadership experience
    5. specific detail of your resume

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    I got this interview opportunity through the on campus recruitment process of my university. It was a face to face interview by a current employer. No behavior question. The interview started with one cs question and one finance concept question, both are easy, and then there is a brain-teaser question.

    Interview

    I was interviewed by 2 guys over the phone. They were both managing directors. The interview was overall very laid back and they asked mostly fit questions. It was about 30 minutes and pretty standard. Some market-based questions as well.

    Get the first phone screen, week later three phone screens in one day morning from alumni, asking basic question, and one with lots tech questions. Questions relate to most of behavior questions, long-term goal, why investment banking, why GS, current deal and discuss it whether it is a good deal, etc.Very professional and efficient.
