Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

Interview

The interview was hard. It was over the phone, and the interviewer was not very friendly. The interview questions were hard and very specific questions about the markets and Goldman Sachs. They also asked the general about you questions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Two rounds of interviews. One 30 minute nontechnical phone interview and two 45 minute very technical interviews with technical personnel. The people interviewing me were very bright. Knew about all the various services I was talking about and as a result asked how they worked, why i chose x over y, etc. Also, they look at your github beforehand if you put it on your resume.

    Everyone that I interviewed with and talked to was SUPER nice and willing/ready to help.

    Flat salary for SW interns. It's more than enough. I promise.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    Sent resume to a campus recruiter, was selected for an on campus interview. The interview process consisted of two back to back 30 minute interviews. One was with two people and was mostly behavioral, the other was with one person and it was heavily technical. Since I am a finance student they expected a lot more knowledge of investment banking than any college student would know unless they had been studying investment banking concepts for months ahead of time. The interview was overall a good experience for me because now every other interview I have seems incredibly easy compared to this one! Also the interviewers were very nice and seemed to care about what I had to say, but I knew coming out of the interview I would definitely not be getting another one.

    Interview

    I went through 10 interviews. The first one was on site at my university campus. Typical behavioral interview. Pretty much to see if you are a likable person, and have a minimum level of technical competency. The other 9 interviews were back to back, in New York City. Very diverse interviewers... very different interviews every time. They will expect you to know about things you have on your resumé (should be a given, but yeah).

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult question wasn't difficult because it was necessarily a hard question, but because the interviewer had a cold, emotionless expression the entire time. It was impossible to read her. Makes you doubt whether or not she found your answer adequate.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    The hiring process consisted of meeting a recruiter on campus and discussing the application process, applying online and then moving into the interview rounds. You are asked to complete a HireVue interview which is general behavioral questions, "Tell me a time when..." type of questions. You are then contacted to schedule and interview at the office to which you applied and complete a networking event, which is general and a way to get to know other candidates, and then an interview the next day. The interview consisted of 3 thirty minute interviews with 3 separate managers. One asks ethics based questions, another is meant to test your analytical experience based on your background and the third is about your diverse background and what you bring to the office environment.

    Interview Questions

    • Why Goldman? Why this division? Why this city?   Answer Question
    • Hypothetical ethical situations that you may encounter in the workplace.   Answer Question
    • Describe a time when you completed a task that no one else thought you could. How did you use analytical skills to finish it?   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs in November 2016.

    Interview

    HireVue digital interview. Around 6-7 questions. Most are behavior questions, the rest are targeted to the specific department you applied. Each question contains like 2-3 mini questions to answer. Facing a laptop can't see a real person makes it hard. Also some questions I found it was difficult to answer all the points in 2 mins.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you have any specific area you want to improve (or similar question).   Answer Question
