    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT) in April 2017.

    Interview

    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. The interview was a little overwhelming, as it was my first professional interview. There were two 30 minute interviews with two people from the team that was hiring for the position.

    Credit Risk Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was referred to the position by another USC alumni. The overall interview process was broken down into a phone interview and three back-to-back on-site interviews. Cool teams, the Municipalities team (CRG) was my favorite, but the Credit Risk Review Group (CRRG) was a close second. Everyone came off as very professional and articulate, but also made jokes in my interview and tried to make me feel comfortable.

    They told me that due to an increase in the number of analyst applications they received this year, they couldn't offer me a position but encouraged me to apply again in the future - basically a soft no...

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and about 2 weeks later was reached out to via email and invited to participate in a phone interview. The phone interview was set for a Tuesday about 2 weeks out.

    Exactly 11 minutes before my phone interview was to begin the interviewer emailed me and said, "So sorry to cancel last minute - I am working from home and not feeling well. Would you be available to reschedule later on in the week?" I immediately responded saying that it was okay, I hope she feels better, and said I'd be happy to reschedule and let her know my schedule was open/flexible and to just let me know what day/time worked for her.

    I never heard back.

    A few days later I emailed her again saying I hope she was feeling better and asked if there was a day this week or next that worked for her to reschedule this phone interview.

    I never heard back.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied in August of 2016, got interview offer February 2017. The first interview was on HireVue (virtual) so you basically had to record your answer to a camera. Asked all behavioral questions like how do you solve a group problem, when was a time you resolved an issue, etc. Then I heard I got the 2nd on-site interview a week later. For that, I had 3 sets of 30 min interviews with two people in the division each. They asked why GS, why this division, walk me through your resume, It was intimidating as hell because I had to be escorted to this special elevator to get to the GS floor and I was so nervous. However, the actual interviewers were a little more laid back than I thought they'd be. Heard back a week later--long-story short, I blew it and they were nice enough to call me to personally call me, which I appreciated. So its all good. Plus it made doing other interviews seem much easier lol.

    Just be prepared to talk about your goals and how what you've done in the past relates. Have lots of "team" related stories, and also try to relax
