    Process took a couple weeks. I applied through a recruiting agency and they sent my information to Goldman Sachs. I was notified a week later that I would receive an interview.

    Application

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

    Interview

    Interview process took around 4 months. GS came out to my campus to recruit future grads. First interview was a recorded Hire Vault interview...then a few weeks later, I received an email saying that they wanted me to fly out for 3 (30 min) back to back interviews...I ended up interviewing with 5 GS workers. They were all amazing and I really enjoyed speaking with all of them. I originally applied for a PT position but they wanted me FT. A month or so later, I had a phone interview with the VP in a different office for a FT position.

    Two phone interviews, then flown to GS offices for two two-on-one interviews and one one-on-one interview.
