    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    First Round: 2:1 interview on campus, roughly half an hour in length. I was asked about my understanding of OOP concepts, as well as my experience with programming. I was asked to write a short code to reverse a string in c++. Pretty straight forward, but they were looking for detailed answers. I am not a Comp Sci student, so there were some questions I couldn't answer right away, but the interviewers gave hints that were helpful. They didn't waste any time going through my resume or asking any behavioral questions.

    Second Round (Superday): I had 3 half-hour 1:1 interviews with members of one department. Some other candidate had additional interviews with 2 or 3 departments, 3 interviews for each. Interviews seemed to be more behavioral in my case. All three of my interviewers focused on what I hoped to get out of the internship, and surprisingly little on what I know.

    My guess is that the first round was to check for knowledge, and the second round was more focused on fit.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Handed my resume to some recruiters at a tech conference earlier in October 2012 and got called up for superday for the first accelerated process mid December. They flew me to New York and I was brought to a conference room with about 15 other candidates. We were briefed and handed our interview schedules for the day (which division they put you in etc). I only have one division scheduled with 2 interviews, whereas I know some people who got up to 9 interviews.

    So I had my 2 rounds of interviews each with 2 interviewers. They were really nice people and half the interview was me asking questions about the job. They got me to introduce myself a little and talk about my coding experience/ latest coding project. Then they asked a math/logic problem and a coding question. Also expect the standard Why Goldman Sachs question.

    I got called about 2 working days later with an offer, which I accepted.

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    First there was a 1:1 interview on campus. I was interviewed by a very friendly person who was a senior manager at the firm. The interview was resume based and behavioral. He asked a lot of questions on the projects I was working on and how would solve certain problems if they came up during the development of my projects. Then I was invited for an On Site interview, where I was interviewed by three people from my team.

    Interview Details

    I had a 2 on 1 interview after a Career Fair on campus. They called me about a week later to fly me out to Salt Lake. I had three interviews each with three different divisions. Each one had a behavioral, a skills test, and then a technical. The technical interviews were pretty difficult. I stumbled on some of the questions.
