Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

Interview

It was online with a Robot and they asked you questions and then you had 30 seconds to think. They gave you 2 minutes to answer each one. It was not horrible, just hard to know what they are looking for.

Interview Questions

  • What would you do if a manager was asking you for specific information on a confidential project that you are working on with another manager because they need it to make an important business decision?   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Visited the NY office for a super day of 4 back to back interviews. It seemed as though each interview was entirely separate because they all asked the exact same three technical questions in each interview. Almost all interviewers from alumni of NYU Stern and other undergrad business programs. So, there was a very large emphasis on technical questions with just a few behavioral questions and one brain teaser. Overall, the process was very unprofessional. There was no HR contact, just a nebulous recruiting e-mail address that ignored all of my inquiries. I had an early morning interview and requested a hotel but they nickeled and dimed me, saying that I should take a 5 am train instead. They also told me that I would hear back in 1-2 weeks. But, they took 4 weeks to reject me. Then, a week later, I received an e-mail with on boarding details. Needless to say this was a mistake on their end and very unprofessional.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Received an email about two and half weeks after applying . I had a three day window to complete the Hire Vue interview. I felt the questions were very fair and allowed me to express my personality and skills. I was really nervous going in, and it wasn't bad at all. Don't be nervous, prepare well, but don't be nervous. Just took the interview, so obviously haven't heard back yet.
