    The interview process was very smooth and easy. 4 back to back interviews mostly about your CV, previous experience and competency questions. There are quite a few situational questions regarding ethic issues like what would you do if you see an illegal activity? You would hear back after 2-3 weeks about the offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    I applied through a recruiter, and arranged an initial phone interview with an Associate the next week. The phone call was 30 minutes, of which 20 minutes were spent toward discussing my qualifications (all behavioral questions) and 10 minutes of discussing the role and the team in greater detail. I was invited to "super day" the next week, where I met with 4 Vice Presidents, 30 minutes each, back-to-back. They asked the following questions:

    Do you think your GPA is strong enough?
    Why Goldman Sachs?
    Why do you want to work for this team specifically?
    Tell me about a time when you had to change your approach to solve a problem in the workplace.
    What are your strengths?
    How would your co-workers describe you?
    What do you enjoy the most about your current job?
    Why should we choose you?
    + A few questions specific to my resume.

    No brainteasers, all behavioral questions. They do expect very precise and detailed answers. I received an offer 2 days later and accepted immediately.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I interviewed for the Operations Analyst internship. They acted rude, but the key word is they ACTED. I could tell they were trying to see how I handled tense situations, particularly because I have met both interviewers before and they had been nice. Make sure you know what would you do in the position, they expect you to REALLY know what is it that you want to be paid for. Know what you will say when they will ask you how would you add value to GS, and be prepare to authentically say your 3 main weaknesses. Do not pull the "I work hard", "I put to much attention to detail" card, because everyone has heard it, and will take off points of you. Just answer that question authentically, and state how are you currently doing to improve this. My advice, say that one of your weaknesses is experience, as they hire people that are the best at whatever they do. Good luck

    Interview

    I applied online and waited about two weeks to hear back from them. They emailed back and asked me to fly me out to Salt Lake City for an interview. I think they were interviewing about thirty people that day in shifts. I got interviewed by four different people for 15-30 minutes each. I got a phone call with results the next day.

    Interview Questions

    • There was a lot of "why Goldman Sachs?" so be ready for that. I had no experience in finance so most questions were character based.   Answer Question
