    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied in August of 2016, got interview offer February 2017. The first interview was on HireVue (virtual) so you basically had to record your answer to a camera. Asked all behavioral questions like how do you solve a group problem, when was a time you resolved an issue, etc. Then I heard I got the 2nd on-site interview a week later. For that, I had 3 sets of 30 min interviews with two people in the division each. They asked why GS, why this division, walk me through your resume, It was intimidating as hell because I had to be escorted to this special elevator to get to the GS floor and I was so nervous. However, the actual interviewers were a little more laid back than I thought they'd be. Heard back a week later--long-story short, I blew it and they were nice enough to call me to personally call me, which I appreciated. So its all good. Plus it made doing other interviews seem much easier lol.

    Just be prepared to talk about your goals and how what you've done in the past relates. Have lots of "team" related stories, and also try to relax

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in January 2017.

    Interview

    There was a digital interview composed of five questions and an in person interview. The digital interview was a bit challenging since there is no person on the other side to give feedback or acknowledge your answers. Also means theres no one to make small talk with to get comfortable in the beginning. Overall I would say it was a positive experience.
