    Intern Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in February 2013.

    Interview

    You submit an application where you need to emphasize your leadership skills, submit CV, and all the other things you would usually do for an interview.

    If it goes well, you will have a phone interview where you will speak to a current employee (usually associate or VP). In my case, the interviewer was very pleasant and asked me about my courses in uni and some of the more odd parts of my CV. In my case, I wrote I had an interest in philosophy and we discussed Adam Smith and his relation to capitalism today.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    About a month after submitting the online application form I was invited for an online HireView interview consisting of 5-6 questions. I was later called and invited for final round interviews in person. I had three interviews, each half and hour long. At the end of each interview I was given 5 minutes to ask questions, make sure you prepare plenty.

    Interview Questions

    • They all asked me to tell them about myself at the beginning. Apart from that I would suggest preparing answers for questions about:

      1. The division and the company (study each word used in the opportunity description, make sure you understand all of the concepts mentioned, and be prepared to talk for a couple of minutes about the company in general),
      2. Situations you experienced and how you responded to them (stressful, conflict, initiative etc)
      3. Analytical skills (what is more important)
      4. Motivation for applying
      5. Your strengths

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

    Interview

    there was a phone interview before on-site. phone interview was about behaviour qns like why you apply for this company(coz its goldman :p) why this division, career path plan, the most challenge thing, your activities besides study, your other experience wants to share.
    3 interviewers in different rooms. each for 15 mins roughly.
    they were kind but you don't know if you are right since they just watched on you saying few words.

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied online for an industrial placement role, then got invited to take part in a pre-recorded interview. There were only 4 or 5 questions and they were mainly competency based. After a month or 2 (one month after the application deadline, 2 months after submitting video) I was invited to the final interview stage at their offices where I has 3 back to back 30min interviews, either with 2 interviewers or 1. All the employees were very kind and seemed interested in what you had to say. I got my application decision a week later. I asked for feedback and the people in recruitment actually called me to tell me, which I was surprised by as I'd read here that GS were bad at feedback. There were no technical questions just make sure you really know about the division and the role you're applying too as that was my downfall. I will definitely be applying again!
