    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Took 3 months to interview for a VP position. Probably met more than 20 people. nothing too remarkable. mostly focused on personality, with some technical questions about my expertise. i got the sense that the process is always pretty slow, with some feedback from time to time, which was not always clear to me. i was told that it is a place where people tend to stay apparently, but the people whom i met were all relatively new.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    A long process of 12 interviews over 3 days, varying from one-on-one settings to a panel style interview process.

    Having lived in Russia for a couple years, I listed it on my resume as a known language. One of the interviews was held completely in Russian, which was really just a conversation with a native Russian from the trade floor. After about 15 minutes of chatting, he told the VP in the room that my Russian proficiency was good, and we moved on to the next interview.
