    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Basic behavioral interview questions. I did not receive any curveballs or anything out of the ordinary. Do your research on the company - explain why you want to work for them. Show you are a good leader, speaker, ethical, well-rounded, and intelligent and you should be fine.

    I applied through on-campus recruiting. Two 30 minute, back-to-back interviews with two workers, seniority differed among them all. Received offer about a week and a half later.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I applied both through my campus career services website along with Goldman's website. Received a phone call about 2 weeks later, asking me to schedule a on-campus interview. I had two 2-1 interviews (back to back) with associates and Vice Presidents of all different teams within Operations. PWM, Asset Management, Clearing, etc. Interview was not too difficult, as long as you know your resume and know why you want to be a part of Goldman Sachs. Do your homework on GS and be knowledgable about the current markets and you're in.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    On campus interview. Two 30 minute interviews back to back with different employees out of the field of operations. 100% behavioral questions, no technical questions. There is no "superday". The interviewers were really friendly and interested. There is no real good way of preparing for this interview, just be yourself.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I was initially contacted to schedule an interview a couple weeks after the deadline for the internship, I was given a couple time slots to choose from on a given day and was told there would be two 45 minute rounds. The first round was purely "fit" questions, and the second round was "behavioral," both pretty straightforward and interactive. A couple weeks later they notified me with the decision.

    Interview Questions
    • Since I am studying Industrial Engineering, a question that seemed difficult to me was to describe exactly why I wanted to work specifically for Goldman.   Answer Question
