    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    I was interviewed via the Hirevue software. The digital interview was not easy to give as it becomes difficult to talk while watching yourself. The interview primarily checked the analytical skills and how fast you can think. Some questions were behavioral, but some did need knowledge from the investment banking/financial markets sector.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Jersey City, NJ) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process is slightly different from the reviews I read.
    First you apply online, then they send you a programming challenge on hackerrank website. 2 problems for 45 minutes, with the second one explicitly asking for an optimzed solution. Then they send you a link for behavioral question to be recorded on HireVue. 5 questions; each question is followed by 30 seconds to allow yourself to prepare a response and then 2 minutes to respond. The platform allow to test some sample questions, but when taking the real ones is one shot only, no cchance to retry. After that I have been called for super day in NYC (New Jersey Goldman Sachs tower). There, the interview consists of only 2 45 minutes sessions with senior emplyee of different divisions, so there is no call in the afternoon. The interviewes are a mix of resume, behavioral and technical. No tour of the place, lunch or anything. You get the response if you get the position within 2 weeks.

    A kind of stupid aspect is that they do not cover travel expenses between New Jersey and NYC, so do not fly on Newark unless you know which trains to take (it is faiirly easy, but if you arrive at a later time in the day, avoid it).

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through university, received invitation for first round HireVue Interview. Was given four days to complete it online. Have yet to hear back the results, contacted the recruiter and she informed me it would take 2 or 3 weeks to hear back - which was odd as I know someone who went through the interview process and only took 2 days to receive invitation for the second round interview.

    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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was selected for the HireVue interview. Definitely weird having to record yourself, but overall not a bad experience. Highly recommend finding a software or using Photo Booth to practice recording yourself in a given amount of time. Waiting on hearing feedback on the interview as of now.
