    Interview

    Got placed through campus placements. After the aptitude round, there was one round in college, followed by 2 rounds with 2 different sets of VP's from Goldman. Rounds were fairly simple and nothing too technical was asked. Questions were mostly related to current affairs of the financial world and a few questions about the firm and their leadership

    Excellent.. They help us in finding out what we are more interested in..The people over there are really good. The culture seems to be awesome. They are more concerned about us. More number of rounds shall happen. Don't get panic.Its just that they need to decide what are we good at.

    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.
