    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in May 2013.

    Long day of interviews — meeting different people. You have to be on your A game with each one. Make sure to email thank you to each person. If you get their information beforehand, send them an email too. Don't talk about being tired/busy — they think if you feel that way at current job you won't be able to hack it there.

    Credit Risk Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was referred to the position by another USC alumni. The overall interview process was broken down into a phone interview and three back-to-back on-site interviews. Cool teams, the Municipalities team (CRG) was my favorite, but the Credit Risk Review Group (CRRG) was a close second. Everyone came off as very professional and articulate, but also made jokes in my interview and tried to make me feel comfortable.

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bengaluru (India)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Bengaluru (India)) in May 2012.

    Interview

    There were about 3-4 rounds of telephonic screening after which I was called to the office for an interview. This process lasted a whole day, through which I was interviewed by about 6-7 people. There were another 1 or 2 rounds of telephonic interviews after this - basically everyone in the team that I was joining interviewed me.

    After I was made an offer a month later, there was a background screening process, so it was another month before I ultimately joined.
