Difficult Interview


The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in January 2010.


Two rounds of phone interviews
1) two MDs from Europe asking fit questions...really encouraging me, but also intense on the "why goldman". grilled EVERYTHING on my resume. spoke both languages to me that i had put on my resume as prepared
2) Associate from the office, general technical, accounting type questions. know it.

-Four rounds in the NY office
1) Met with VPS, and analysts who used to work in the country office where i was interviewing. got lambasted by a VP with this crazy consulting type problem involving cash flows of a hypothetical company...was intense. lots of technicals from analyst. also had a video interview with the european office.

-On-site, 7 round interview in Europe with written english and math exams
1) insane.
2) made me go in RIGHT after my transatlantic flight, straight from the airport
3) sat me in a room for over 8 hours. everybody came to me in the room. total stress test
4) HR girl tried to psyche me out about the written test...emphasizing the time pressure. just stayed cool..went through it, did well.
5) whole team came in one-by-one to drill me. fit for the first 10 min, brainteasers, accounting questions, valuation questions, why goldman questions, everything.
6) some were good cops, some bad, some turned lights down low and asked if i was getting tired...some flipped lights on bright and asked tough questions right away
7) finally made it to a sweet MD who was nice and tough. was friendly at first, then started yelling at me, asked me to stand up and give a speech on the global auto sector, told me to sit down and quizzed me on math questions and the size of various global firms. told me i had it at the end...and was really nice.

not too bad, huh? everything was MUCH more intense than CS, Citi, or jefferies. even interviewed with mckinsey and they werent that intense.
