    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Superday. Behavioural. Very stressful. They asked about investment strategy, aka if we don't invest in T-Bill what will we invest in? Mostly about the 'fit', what sports you do, do you know enough of the team. Very conversational, but intellectually challenging - speaking of the technical part.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in March 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process is based on getting your resumed flagged by recruiters and following up with people you networked to land your foot in a first round interview. The next step is to get your technical up to pace and then answer behavioral in a way that is memorable. That is the most assured way to best secure chances of being a strong candidate for the analyst position.
