Interview

Goldman tends to ask much higher level questions than boutique banks. I wasn't asked any technical questions in the final round, with the focus much more on fit. They seemed focused on desire to work hard, teamwork, modesty. The first round was a 2 on 1 interview with the next round the final round. The final round consisted of 4-6 interviews on location.

Interview Questions

  • The questions were all very straightforward. Nothing surprising   Answer Question

    Non-target school. One phone interview then invited to superday. Superday consisted of 3 - 30min interviews. Nothing unexpected, know the technical side of things inside and out ( DCF, M&A, etc.). Be prepared for typical behavioral / fit questions.

    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.

    Interview

    Received a phone call screening through campus/university recruiting. It was a Pre screening phone call and it was with the head of the IBD group. Friendly non-technical interview. The following week I spoke with an associate which was just an informal informational interview about why me and what he does at the bank.

    Application

    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.
