Difficult Interview

Interview

Seemed rushed and uninterested. Had only women interviewers that seemed competitive and unwanting of a new intern. Rude phone call to notify of decision - "Please call us back so we can discuss the next steps" - Later... "We have decided not to proceed further"

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    The interview took place over a span of 2 months. The first interview was on campus and the second was a superday. The first interview was a great experience and the people were great. PWM is very fit based and they want to get to know you more than anything else. The first interview had 2 people in it and was 30 minutes in length. The superday was 4 back to back interviews with 2 people in each interview. Each interview was 30 minutes in length. The superday was great, and everyone I interviewed with was very welcoming.

    My biggest piece of advice- be able to talk about the markets in-depth and just be genuine.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about the markets, how would you invest one-million dollars and why, and some behavioral questions.   Answer Question

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Talked with one person on the phone for about thirty minutes. Asked a lot of technical question about the market and past experiences in the industry. Was able to ask questions about the internship at the end. Overall, it seemed this position was analyzing stocks, funds, and indexes with other members at the company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Philadelphia, PA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and had a 30 minute phone interview followed by in-person interviews. I went to the office and sat in a conference room while different people came in to interview me (all interviews were one on one). Sometimes I was left waiting after an interviewer left, and sometimes the next one came in while the previous interview was still in progress. I met with about five different people (some analysts and some higher up). Everyone was very friendly. Some of the questions were challenging (a few riddles and some follow ups on my opinion of the market etc.) For the most part the interviews were conversational and a positive experience. I asked questions and learned more about the experience of working in PWM. I did not hear back until two months later when I was informed I did not get the internship.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions about my resume/experiences, why do you want to do PWM? Asked basic stock market/economy questions with more specific follow-ups, a few riddle/logic games   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied directly on the website and received a phone call in 2 weeks. The phone interview was brief then had a full day interview on site. I had met with 5 different people and all 5 pretty much asked me questions about my resume. Make sure you know your resume inside out and make sure you know the role of the position inside out. Each interviewer will try to bring out a flaw so make sure you nail every interviewer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Three fit interviews with associates and vice presidents. There were some mathematic components and some very basic market question, but the largest focus was put on the fit. You have to be a generally likable and extrovert person, since the work is so client focused. Don't compare it with other parts of the division or the larger firm, I've heard of different people who tried to take this route and failed to get an offer.

    Interview

    I received the first round interview by sending in a resume to one of the analysts who attended a professional convention held at my school. Although I thought I did not do as well as I had wanted, I still fortunately passed the second round interview and received a Superday opportunity.
