    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 an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in July 2016.

    Interview

    First 45 min phone screen with HR, which was very tough (attitude-wise, not the contents of the questions), after which I felt so depressed because nobody had ever talked to me like that. So I was very surprised when I got the onsite invitation a couple of days later because I thought the HR lady didn't like me at all. Mostly she was trying to stress me out to see if I would lose it.

    It was a bad timing for my onsite interview as it was a first workday after a holiday so I was told many people were not in the office. I interviewed with two VPs and an associate. The questions were not hard (mixed of behavioral and technical questions) but I was a little intimidated and under prepared, that my knowledge was a bit rusty. But I did fine as I figured out all technical problems, some with hints.

    I followed up with one of the VPs who gave me his card a week later, who didn't reply my email. But then I was emailed by HR twice the following two weeks, telling me I was still under consideration and would get back to me once she has an update for next steps. Then more than 3 weeks later after my onsite interview, I got a call telling me that my application would not be moved forward. 5 days later I saw they re-posted the position on their website...

    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.
