    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I spoke with many alumni from my school in order to receive a first round interview. The first round interview was a HireVue. You record yourself answering 5 fit based questions with no technical questions. The experience was very off putting and definitely takes some getting use to.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Jersey City, NJ) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. Video interview two weeks later. Invited to Superday at Jersey City Office. Three interviews, thirty minutes each: 2-1, 1-1, 2-1. They were very friendly but the MD was intimidating, that is his job. Overall great experience but must be confident or else say goodbye to an offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The first round process for Goldman is now done through HireVue, and online video interviewing service. They did this to cut costs and to cast a wider net of first round interviews (and probably to fend off accusations of bias). Easier/less time consuming but awkward interface. Weird to see yourself on camera and I would recommend the option where you block the image of yourself so you can focus on looking at your computer's camera and answering the question.

    Interview

    1 phone interview, 1 super-day. Had to interview with 3 groups (2 people in each). Generally pretty laid back -mostly behavioral - but that was probably because I was interviewing as a sophomore. No brainteasers.
