    Always expect markets related questions in addition to the usual behavioral routine. Make sure you have an idea of what you're looking for and do research into different roles so you are prepared to ask good questions of various interviewers with different backgrounds.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Beware of GS. I was invited for an in-person interview and the two hiring managers met with me for close to two hours which I considered a good sign. I never heard back after that meeting, at which point it dawned on me that the only reason they wanted to speak with me was to get insight into how one of their main competitors approaches a certain area. They were just looking for competitor information, took copious notes and only asked questions about "How would you handle x, y and z"?

    Interview Questions

    • If you were in charge of this area, how would you approach X? Tell us more about the pros and cons you see about Y. You get the picture.   Answer Question
