    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.

Interview questions were scenario-based, knowledge-based, and descriptive; each question was well thought out and deliberate. Interviewers were happy to clarify their questions and asked excellent follow up questions.

    Online interview through hirevue. I was asked several behavior/fit what if questions, and was contacted a few weeks later for summit interviews in person. Advice is to be comfortable and relate your skills to specific real world scenarios.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    They had us go to a room where we rotated interviewers. The interviewers mostly asked behavioral questions to get to know who I was and whether I would fit well within the organization's culture. They want to select people who have intellectual curiosity and people that will ask questions. My position was for an Operations Analyst INTERNSHIP.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Jersey City, NJ) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Straight forward, five 30 min interviews, basically behavioral questions, how to work within a team. Nothing too difficult. I met with people in Jersey City and talked with people in Salt Lake over the phone. I found out that night that I got the job. Honestly one of the easiest interviews I have had. They just wanted to know who you are and how well you work with others.

    Interview

    I interviewed for a contract/temp position in operations. The interview was mainly behavioral questions. It lasted one hour total with two separate groups of interviewers for 30 mins each. The interview process was straightforward although I have heard its quite a bit longer for full-time, non contract positions directly with GS.
