    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.

    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
