    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs in December 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online through Goldman Sachs' website, and they sent me the link for video interview. Thus, I had to go to a quiet room to do my video interview. Generally, they ask you 6 or more 7 questions. Interviewee has about 2:30 or 3 min to answer those questions. I think it was a 30 sec break or 15 sec break before you start recording your answers. It helped me to prepare what I wanted to say. However, when the time ends, it immediately passes to the next question. No going back or whatsoever. Thus, may have to be succinct of what you are saying.

    Interview Questions

    • Q. What would you do if you have a conflict with your senior manager?   Answer Question
    • Q. How do you solve conflict with teammates?   Answer Question

    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.

    • 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
