    Investment Management Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    I had the opportunity to use Goldman Sachs' new HireVue applicant pre-screening tech for an IMD Internship I applied for in August, and interviewed in September. The pre-recorded questions are multi - faceted, which I allowed to throw me off my game. I have not heard back from HCM, but I am confident that I will not be extended an offer to attend superday.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    Pretty standard process. 60% behavioral, 40% technical. The interviewer was somewhat friendly, but did pass judgment when I stumbled on one of the technicals. I will say that HR was very disappointing throughout the whole process. I found HR to be very unprofessional at this firm, particularly compared to its peers.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    All online. First few questions were pretty standard personal interview questions. The last couple were job specific. Not a huge fan of the online interview. Not only was the interview online, all of the questions were pre recorded. Felt like my application and interview was one of many that wouldn't be seen.
