    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Dallas, TX) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very straight forward - a long day at their office interviewing with a handful of folks both virtually and in house. Questions were not difficult and applied directly to the opportunity we were discussing. They followed up promptly with an offer.

    After the interview the process went down hill. HR really dropped the ball in getting things squared away in a timely fashion. I sent along all documentation, required tests/background info etc. I followed up with them three times over the course of a MONTH and they continued to say "I will check and get back to you". They even re-requested documents I had previously provided them (three weeks prior) which was very frustrating. During the 6-week waiting period for a background check to be fulfilled I ended up receiving a better offer from another company and took it. The competitor had my background, drug, fingerprints etc cleared in 6 days and I was ready to start. I want to work for a company that make client experience a priority - this was just awful and a big disappointment.
