Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

Interview

Resume drop during undergrad. Had a phone interview that was about a half hour. It wasn't anything tricky—mostly behavioral. Then went for Superday. It was a long day and consisted of a few different rounds. I did get a few technical questions, but they weren't anything I hadn't seen before during undergrad or summer internships. That said, I know people that didn't really have a background had more trouble with similar questions.

Interview Questions

  • They asked a lot about my previous experience, especially an internship I had with a similar company the summer before   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT) in September 2015.

    Interview

    First there was a phone interview. After ten days had actual interview at their Salt Lake City office. Four people interviewed me same day. It was not a panel interview. Each person took 30 minutes to interview me. It was a pleasant experience. Everybody was friendly and explained me about the company culture. Most of the question are behavioral questions except a couple. It has been 5 weeks and haven't heard from them yet.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Back-to-back interviews with a total of five interviewers. Normal fit questions with a few technical. Make sure you know what you are talking about because they ask questions based off of what you say. Also, BE YOURSELF. If you try to be what you believe they want you to be you will struggle to answer naturally and find the sweet spot when answering questions.

    Come prepared with a few examples of things that are going on in the market and relate them to something you have learned academically. The reason why I say that, is because theory is MUCH different than application and they don't expect you to know much outside of it. But obviously if you do have real world experience that is great and you should talk about it.

    Be prepared to ask questions at the end as well. How do you measure the success & development of employees etc.?

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Organized and structured. Some behavioral and some technical. Pretty standard. Some interviewers liked to put you under a stress test. Nothing unexpected. Just prepare well and rely on a little bit of luck. Brain teasers were pretty expected and no stock pitched was asked.

    Interview

    very nice and laid back. I went to the office in dallas/ irving texas and had two one on one interviews. After there was a panel that was able to answer out questions. I decided to accept another offer instead, but that was just because I was closer to the other firm

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    Contacted by HR with an on the spot short interview. One more phone interview then a superday. Phone interviews are mostly resume based, nothing unexpected. Superday consists of multiple back to back interviews, 2 interviewers at a time. Superday is very mentally exhausting, interviewers focus on your personality, how you deal with specific situations, and if you're truly motivated to join and contribute the Goldman culture.

    Some tricky unexpected technicals, but they're just exploring your thought process and your ability to not crack under pressure. Be prepared to go in depth on all of the behavioral questions, they'll follow up simple questions with 10 minutes worth of follow up questions on your answer.

    Interview Questions
