Investment Banking Analyst Interview

Difficult Interview

Application

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

Interview

The interview process was unfair. They had already asked me unsavory questions on the on-campus interview at University of Pennsylvania. I complained to CPPS, who contacted the company and the company conceded by putting me on a train to NY. One of the interviewers began questioning my sexual orientation. He said it's important because, "we work so many hours that it's just as important if not more important who you work with as the work itself. ... We have a certain culture and if we don't like you or you don't like us, then it won't be a happy experience to be here. ... And please don't go complaining to CPPS because if they restrict us from interviewing at Wharton, then one of your classmates who fits here won't have the opportunity."

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Jersey City, NJ) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online after receiving referral from alumnus from my non-target university. First round was 20 minute phone screen, went through resume and one or two behavioral questions. Second round was video interview through HireVue. I recommend doing as many practice questions as you can, to get familiar with the software and recording. 4 behavioral questions, all of which were similar to the practice ones and one technical asking about recent acquisitions. Third round was in Jersey City office where the was three 30 minute interviews. Be prepared to walk thorough your resume every time and be prepared to answer questions on it. First was with fairly young associate, who asked technical questions from a question sheet, all fairly straightforward. Second was a video conference with two older associates from San Francisco. More technical questions but was more of a running conversation rolling from topic to topic. I felt it was difficult to establish a good rapport with them as the the recording setup was awkwardly positioned and there was connectivity issues which made it hard for the interview to have a good flow. The third interview was with a VP who focused strictly on my resume followed by some behavioral questions.

    Interview

    First applied online. This was followed by a screening phone call. The phone call was just behavioral. Next was a superday in their office in which you are interviewed by 8-10 people within the firm form analyst to managing director. Overall the process was OK.

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

    Interview

    Applied through school process. I was called into the room where two people talked to me. They were very intimidating to be honest- I think because I lacked in previous investment banking experience they sort of looked down upon me but I was able to answer all their questions. Still have not heard back though.

    Interview

    interviewed with two different guys on my final round. Half fit, half technical. For the technical questions, the relay started all the way from the "three most widely used valuation methods" to interest rates/ macro issues.
