    I was given 3 days to complete a hire view interview (online interview). I had a total of 6 questions and was being interviewed for two different positions. The hire view website allowed you to practice questions prior to the interview and this was helpful.

    I had a HireVue interview with GS with about 3-4 days to prep. I was initially recruiting for Compliance, but the head recruiter for our school told me there is no vacancy for compliance, so I switched my first choice to Operations at last minute.

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT).

    Interview

    Very long interview process. They interview you about 5 times. Interviewers talk in third person. Not very professional in valuing your time. When I checked in the front desk ladies were gossiping. Very strange place.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    I was interviewed using HireVue, which I really did not like. I’d much rather talk face to face with someone than do it on my phone. I didn’t do so well, unfortunately, and did not make it to the next step.

    Interview

    Applied Online, the process took two weeks - Asked to complete HireVue video interview.
    Received an E-mail one week later to fly out to SLC for on-site interviews.
    3 back-to-back interviews on-site: 30 minutes each
    Interviewers are very friendly and are trying to understand you as an individual rather than hammer at analytical questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Dallas, TX) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Resume drop, after 1 week get HireView (4 recorded questions + 3 divisional specific questions), and then after 1 week get second/ final round on site interview (3 back to back, mostly behavioral). Before final round, the travel team cancelled my flight without sending me an email... After the interview it takes really long to hear back the results.
