    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Was relatively intense, it was three rounds of 30 minute interviews with two senior associates across the table from you in each room. Before that I had an hireview interview, which I really hated. Then I had a online video chat interview. The overall experience was pretty average.

    Goldman interview was online virtual interview. I know this is a new process for them and it was run through Hire Vue. The questions were presented in a video form. I had 30 seconds to prep and 2 minutes to interview. It was roughly 7 questions. Some behavioral questions and also technical questions, about positions I didn't apply for. Behavioral questions were average about team work etc, but technical questions were about areas of the firm I was unfamiliar with. I have not heard a response back yet

    Interview

    I applied online then got invited to do the hirevue within a couple days. Hirevue was a digital interview platform. I was given a week to do the digital interview. The digital interview had six questions and took approximate 20 minutes. After the hirevue, I got invited to the Superday. The Superday included three rounds of interviews with some VPs of that division.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs in October 2016.

    Interview

    Surprisingly unprofessional process. Gave <24 hours notice of interview date/time and changed the interviewers last minute. After almost a month of no feedback, finally gave rejection notice. The first phone screen was pretty straight forward and asked the usual questions about work experience, understanding of the position/department, and a few basic technical questions. Next interview was very unstructured, interviewer didn't know what they were doing. Seemed to want to know more about classes I took freshman year of college than relevant work experience.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Long had to go back and forth several times. I think the entire process took 4 rounds and then they expected me to accept the offer immediately. It wasn't as scary as they made out to be, just very very long.

    Interview

    It mainly involved a VP asking questions about my academic history, research projects I completed, and a few problems to test my mettle. In the end, I was offered a job on the spot but declined due to the fact that I accepted an offer the company I wanted to work with.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Intense and Technical. The interviewer was an MD and began with a simple "Tell me about yourself." The conversation quickly flowed to interest in IB and then was a series of difficult technical questions. The interviewer was kind and gave good feedback, but would only have been impressed with a solid footing in valuation and the like, regardless of my noted lack of experience in the field.
