Operations Summer Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Salt Lake City, UT

Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT) in January 2017.

Interview

I'm sharing my experience here to end this confusing experience. I applied online via their website. Then, I did a video recording interview by the link they sent me. After a month, I received a notification of Superday to fly to SLC. I was studying abroad, so I was not able to fly to SLC and GS HR arranged an online interview. The Miss HR was very bad at replying emails, which took her 1 week to reply about appointment time.
The interview had three rounds, and each round was 30 min. The whole process was basically some behavioral questions and some random questions on their mind.
The first interviewer was nice and opened-up, who gave me some suggestions about personal development and mindset. The second round were two guys, which asked me some technical questions irrelevant to my position. The third guy were very careless. He basically said I'm tired after all these rounds of interviews. He rarely looked at camera ,and asked difficult questions. Plus, he was not answering my questions.
After two weeks, I received a call about confirming my personal info, which sounds like the position was basically secured. After one day, the Miss HR sent me an impatient email that asked me to call back. After calling back, she just carelessly told me I didn't get the intern and the reason cannot be told.
These two phone calls made me very confused. I'd say GS a prestige firm, and its board shares lots of wealth. Unfortunately, the staff there failed to be intelligent enough to know that the world is not around them for being a normal worker there.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    My first interview was during a career fair they attended, a couple of days after that interview I was invited to attend the operations Superday that same Friday. For the superday they pay for all expenses and set you up in a nice hotel right next to their manhattan offices. There is an information session Thursday evening that I definitely recommend since you get a chance to meet some employees and get information about the division and interview process.

    The superday consists of three back to back interviews, I was scheduled for the 8:30 am - 10:00 am time slot. Most of the questions where behavioral and about my resume and experience. The interviewers where extremely nice and casual, each interview lasted 30 minutes. Know your resume pretty well and prepare questions for the interviewers. You dont need to ask for emails for thank you notes, I asked the HR representative arranging the process beforehand.

    I got the call with the offer of employment that same Monday. The process overall was extremely quick, less than two weeks passed since my first interview until the offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (Jersey City, NJ).

    Interview

    The interview process was very straight forward. There were a lot of behavioral questions that asked about ways you responded to certain situations in the past. There is a lot of pressure in this industry so they want to know how you would react when something goes wrong and you have to respond quickly...Pretty much, you can't fold under pressure because there will be a lot of pressure and time sensitive situations. So definitely prepare for the "Tell me about a time when something didn't work out how you intended and how you reacted. Definitely stress that you keep your poise and have a problem solving mentality.
