Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT) in November 2010.

Interview

The phone interviews were very easy, only behavioral questions. You should know exactly why you want to work for Goldman Sachs and if you are coming from a background different from finance, you should definitely relate it to why you want to work in finance. Be very relax and honest. Prepare good examples form your past professional and educational experiences and use good keywords when you describe your skills such as leadership, team-oriented, innovator, etc...

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    I just met them briefly at a university information session, and gave them a copy of my resume. A few days later they called back for an interview. The interview was 4 back-to-back 30 minute interviews. 2 interviewers with 1 interviewee. They introduced themselves, then asked me to go through my resume. In between they would ask questions relating to the job, company, etc. They said they would get back to us in a week or two.

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Video interview through Hire view interview. Four weeks later still no repose. At least provide some feed back to applicants. The interview process is awkward in front of a webcam. About 5 or six questions with one minute to come up with an answer and 3 minutes respond.
