    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (San Francisco, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Resumes were sent through our on-campus application system. I sent in a one page resume. Next, they selected our names and we selected our time slot for interviews. For the actual interviews, they came on campus and asked us questions for 25 minutes and allowed us to ask questions for 5 minutes. It was a 2 on 1 interview, but sometimes it can be a phone screen or a 1 on 1. For the 25 minutes, they asked us half behaviorals and half technical questions. Behaviorals pertained to teamwork and work ethic and how we respond to challenges. Technicals pertained to finance, accounting, valuation and industry trends.

    Interview

    Two technical phone interviews. Started out with basic questions; talk about your resume, yourself, favorite classes etc. Followed with technical questions, mainly programming. Both interviews based on one or two "core" problems. After successfully answering them they asked for finer details on the answers, how to further optimize, confidence intervals, etc

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied online and got an e-mail inviting me for a phone interview. The phone interview was 30 minutes with a member of the team I'd be involved with. The questions were mostly behavioral. They asked about ethical dilemmas, how you work in a team, etc. Two weeks later, I was contacted for a second round interview. They flew me out to Salt Lake City where the interview was only an hour long. I had half hour sessions with two senior members, so four people total. The questions again were mostly behavioral.

    Interview Questions

    • The hardest part was being asked to teach them a concept in accounting and teach them a concept in finance.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I had a much better offer already and I didn't feel like I would fit in well.
