Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in September 2014.

Interview

Entered through the Diversity recruiting process which occurs before any on-campus interviews. They invited those who had attended their camps before, and from then began a set of super days. Both were at the GS head quarters, and were 3 thirty minute interviews that were either one on one, or two on one.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    I easily had 7+ interviews. My original interview was on-campus at the university I attend. A lot of it was pretty unorganized. When I received callback interviews, I was informed of the interview less than a week in advance (which was difficult since most of my interviews were in NYC and I was 4+ hours away from NYC and still had class). All of my expenses were paid, however. Which was pretty cool.

    Reasons for Declining

    I had decent qualifications to be employed in the tech industry. The tech industry pays better, has way better fringe benefits (i.e. flexible hours, way less hours, no pressure to work on the weekends) and it seemed to be easy to make the transition from tech to finance if I later decided I wanted that.

    Interview

    Was on campus interview. Not too tough. Mostly fit but a few "check the box" technicals to make sure I at least knew my stuff a little.

    Interview

    Operations Analyst position. Questions were all behavioral and it really depends on your interviewer. Two back to back interviews on campus. I am an engineer so I was actually asked to debate about the shale boom with one of my interviewers.

Some questioning on how I deal with difficulties and a time I didn't perform well on a deliverable and a time I had to mentor someone through a difficulty.
    Five days later was notified they would not be proceeding with my application.
