I applied online at the Goldman Sachs career page. After 2 months of the deadline, I received an email which asked me to come to the firm an do a face-to-face interview.

I was coming in as an experienced hire. Round 1 was 1-1 interview with senior manager, next level was multiple interviews with about 8 people. I was there for a few hours interviewing. Most interviewers asked the same questions as their peers. Heard back from them a few weeks later with Job offer. HR were excellent to work with in terms of the paperwork side of things.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in June 2015.
Initially stated to be a 3:1 interview panel it turned out to be 2:1. Straight to "Tell us about you last role". Very Serious. Know your previous position well. Know your CV well. Know why you want to work for GS. Strengths, Weaknesses. Problem solving. Know the team (what they do).

2 stages of interviews. Each stage consists of 3 sets of interviews. Mostly interviewing with the team you are applying for. It was fairly quick process. A week to get a call from HR, a week to set up the first stage of interview. They proceeded with the next stage and it was a week after. In a week, they told me their decision.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.
Applied with Cover Letter, and CV, got called to first interview a few weeks after (first session had 1 interview involved solving a logic/maths question, then talking about that question with an interviewer) Called to final round interview, 3x competency based interviews, although became quite technical due to points I had on my CV. (If you mention technical details on your CV prepare to talk about it)

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)).
The interview process for my division was rather long. One route was to go through the internship program where you spent 10 weeks on the trading floor meeting people and being quizzed. Another method was to interview and this was not particularly easy and also consisted of 10+ interviews in most instances.

I applied online. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in March 2015.
As the standard here for London office, the first step is a telephone interview since i was in London. Two days later, I had the final interview. After two week, I am still waiting for the response. I called them up asking why they didn't post the result yet. They told me to wait for another several weeks. They didn't say that they put me on hold. I'd love to know actually do anyone here receives the response already? The final interview is on March 27th Friday.
