    CRM Analyst Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Was approached by an HR associate. He's very nice -- asked why are you looking for a job when you already have a job, followed by some behavior questions. They quickly scheduled the first round of phone interview. I was interviewing for two positions -- one is analyst level and another was VP level. The first one was totally fine -- was caught off guard because HR told me first round would mostly be behavior questions but I was bombarded by very technical questions. I admit that's my fault for not preparing adequately.

    Second one was for the VP level position -- this time I came prepared, but the second team were total jerks. One guy was like "you have a CFA, how can you not know this". Well, I gave him the exact answer that was in the CFA text book which he said is wrong. I'd personally stay away from that team.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Super straightforward, fairly simple questions: low amount of mathematical reasoning, mostly behavioral/situational. Know your resume and be prepared to describe in detail what you did and enjoyed/disliked about each. Interviewers are very resourceful and explained my questions throughly. Be yourself and relax, if you aren't you look unprofessional or may be lying about an experience.
