    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.

    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.
