    Summer Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    First, two online test, one math, one C++. Both are normal. Second, the virtual video interview, quite strange, only 4 questions and all are behaviour questions. Last, invited to onsite, three 45min interviews one by one. These become more interesting. Questions are behaviour questions and technical questions.

    Sales and Trading SummerLondon Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Went to last stage assessment centre: 3 face-to-face interviews, thirty minutes each.
    Interviews were more like a chat than an interview, so way more chilled than I expected, although to be honest I am not sure what they were assessing this way.
    Some basic questions "tell me abt yourself" though.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Quick application process around end of September 2017, online interview then interview at HQ in early December.

    3 rounds. (However only had expected 2 interviewers for one round. Very casual - my last interviewer wanted to finish early so they could go home).

    Asked standard questions 'why Goldman?' etc. I come from a completely different background so asked me how I can apply my skills. I made sure to do my research and brought up some relevant trends which they liked. No offer but one of my more pleasant interview experiences.

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in December 2017.

    First stage was to submit a an application form. This included a question section which was required what was basically a compacted cover letter. Relatively standard.

    Second stage was a digital interview. The questions were quite different to other interviews, very much scenario based where you have to think quickly.

    Final stage was a Super Day. It involved three, half hour interviews. Interviewers were very nice. Lots of discussion about my CV. Some technical questions about investment banking.
