Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Jersey City, NJ) in October 2017.

Interview

1) Hackerrank test for programming and math.
2) Behavioral pre-recorded interview on Hireview

After the completion of the above two, they got back in 14 days about the super-day in Jerse City office.

Two interviews back-to-back for 45 mins each, followed by a networking session.

The HR people and interviewers were amicable, cooperative and helpful.

Got back with the results in 10 days.

Great experience.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT) in October 2017.

    Interview

    They sent me a request for an online interview through HireVue where they gave me 5 questions. I received the questions via video and had 30 seconds to formulate an answer and 2 minutes to respond. They never got back to me. I would imagine someone didn't even view it. They asked me the wrong divisional question. I sent then an e-mail about this issue and they never resolved it. Overall I thought it was unprofessional, and I was expected better from Goldman.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and was sent a HackerRank challenge with simple data structure problems. This was followed by a HireVue link about a couple days later. About 2 weeks after I completed my HireVue, I got an invitation for an onsite interview in SLC, which consisted of 2 back-to-back 45 minute interviews, each with 2 engineers/team managers. These interviews had a technical component (similar difficulty level to the HackerRank) but also a lot of behavioral questions. I got an offer 2 weeks after. The whole process went very smoothly, and the team was very quick to reply to all my email inquiries, and was very helpful in assisting me with my offer decision.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    1st round was virtual, 2nd round was Skype interview and 3rd round was a super day where I met with 9 people in total. Overall, pretty straightforward but the questions they asked were a little ridiculous for a first semester junior in college who is not a finance major.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    Very rigorous, involving several interviews back to back. The questions ranged from simple fit questions to more complex conceptual questions to evaluate how I thought. You need to show an interest in the firm and Investment Banking.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (New York, NY) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Had a hire view of 6 questions all divisional was applying for operations and services. make sure to know the role the divisions play. Was called a week later to interview for operations and 3 weeks after to interview for services. for this round make sure to look at the questions posted on glassdoor.

     The questions were mainly behavioral and want to know how you think. make sure to know your resume really well and don't be intimidated by the interviewers they are very nice. make sure you highlight team experience and analytical projects you've done. Be yourself in the interview, if you made it to superday, you made it far, and understand that there is no way to describe a perfect candidate, they will not just hire someone that is extremely qualified, but someone they think is nice and can work with them. They will hire you if they think you are a match to work for them.

    Interview Questions

    • hireview: how does ops division mitigate risk? why this location? why this major?
      if we opened a new building in chicago what would be the role of the services division?
      if you know the president of the student body is cheating walk us through the process of what would you do?

      superday: tell me about an analytical project? a mistake in your past internship? how you handle difficulty in a team? what about division interests you? why goldman? tell me about yourself? how you go about analyzing a big set of data? what would you do if you had no guidance in a project with a short deadline?   Answer Question
