Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

Interview

This interview questions varied significantly by interviewer. Some interviewers asked a number of technical questions and were relatively skeptical. My impression was that these types of questions came from the younger and more junior interviewers. The more senior people I met asked questions more about my motivation and fit.

    I had a phone screen with a lady from the HR team and had a great conversation over the phone. The general feeling I got was that they were very nice and helpful people and the firm/team that I was applying to had a great culture and environments.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Irving, TX) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was disorganized and unprofessional. The initial recruiter did not seem to communicate to the team that my qualifications and salary were too high for the posted role. The worst part of the interview was having the team members cancel their time with me while I sat in an empty conference room. Eventually a junior employee came into the room and asked me to leave my business card.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    5 rounds, mostly puzzles, a couple database questions around normalization, which also doubled as a stress interview. Asked to explain hash table and some questions about projects I had on my resume, what were the challenges, how we overcame, biggest takeaway, etc

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Pasadena, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Sent in resume for Strats division. After 1 week received interview request. Had hour long talk about background plus one technical question. Most interviews will then move on to an on site meeting at the New York office. They have a preference for former interns, which is pretty standard. It might be difficult to get in without any previous financial experience.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Very straight forward - Applied through school career services, received an email setting up first round phone interview with an Associate and VP a month later (I applied early), Super day was a couple of weeks after that. Super Day consisted of 5 interviews during the first half of the day, mostly behavioral/minor technical, a break for lunch, and 3 more interviews after that if you were selected to advance. They did take over a month and half to let me know that I would not be receiving an offer - as if it weren't obvious enough at that point.

    Interview

    Initial phone call followed by a fly-out. The interviews were genuine and they did not try to trick me with the questions they asked. Generally, I needed a solid opinion on the markets and basic financial knowledge.
