Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY).

Interview

Pre-recorded interview on HireVue. It was pretty simple and straight to the point. They want to know you and get a feel for your analytical thinking--That's what I concluded because of the short prep and talk time.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Jersey City, NJ) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The process was very straightforward. I had one virtual interview prior to being flown out to Jersey City, NJ for the Superday. The interviewers were very nice and willing to help should you need it. There was a good mix of fit and technical questions, but nothing too too difficult. Make sure to review most of the information you can find on Glassdoor and other basic finance interview platforms.

    Interview

    Pre-recorded video interview via HireVue system. The questions were basic but the impersonal nature of the interview left something to be desired. Also feel like the lack of human contact threw me off my game.
