    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in October 2012.

    Interview

    Very detailed and very professional. First round would be a telephonic mostly random technical question and resume screening. If that goes well, candidate would be called into office for a series of interview with team mates, leads, architect & senior managers. There could be a written test followed by technical rounds. If all goes well, couple of days later you might get the HR interview.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Initially I had a phone screening with the HR, and one phone interview with a VP. Then I had met 4 different VPs on a 2 hour long interview for half hour with each. I expected a lot more on behavioral questions. One of the interviewers were talking with pretty low voice that was hard to hear.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Jersey City, NJ) in April 2012.

    Interview

    It was the most tiresome . The firm's interview process is lengthy and very time consuming. I met in all 18 people before I was hired. The process was lengthy but people were very nice and considerate. they also understood how cumbersome the hiring process is.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Very easy going, personable, energetic interviews. Separate interviews with each team in the department, so I was often being asked the same questions over and over again. Interviews were succinct and 30 minutes each, with the next team waiting outside to conduct their session. The overall time being interviewed on-site was approximately 4 hours.

    Expect many interviews from various people at all levels. Focus will be on intellect, professional ethics, and work ethic. The company has a team oriented culture and working with others is an important part of the firm's culture.
