    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    About a month after submitting the online application form I was invited for an online HireView interview consisting of 5-6 questions. I was later called and invited for final round interviews in person. I had three interviews, each half and hour long. At the end of each interview I was given 5 minutes to ask questions, make sure you prepare plenty.

    Interview Questions

    • They all asked me to tell them about myself at the beginning. Apart from that I would suggest preparing answers for questions about:

      1. The division and the company (study each word used in the opportunity description, make sure you understand all of the concepts mentioned, and be prepared to talk for a couple of minutes about the company in general),
      2. Situations you experienced and how you responded to them (stressful, conflict, initiative etc)
      3. Analytical skills (what is more important)
      4. Motivation for applying
      5. Your strengths

    Online application with a short cover letter. After 3 months I was contacted to do a video interview through an online platform.

Have examples ready, be prepared to answer why you want that specific role. The process was smooth and everyone was very nice.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs (London, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online for an industrial placement role, then got invited to take part in a pre-recorded interview. There were only 4 or 5 questions and they were mainly competency based. After a month or 2 (one month after the application deadline, 2 months after submitting video) I was invited to the final interview stage at their offices where I has 3 back to back 30min interviews, either with 2 interviewers or 1. All the employees were very kind and seemed interested in what you had to say. I got my application decision a week later. I asked for feedback and the people in recruitment actually called me to tell me, which I was surprised by as I'd read here that GS were bad at feedback. There were no technical questions just make sure you really know about the division and the role you're applying too as that was my downfall. I will definitely be applying again!

    Strats Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview

    1st round is an online Hirevue video interview. 5 x Standard HR behavioural questions. You get 30 seconds to think about your answer after hearing the question, then 2 minutes to record yourself answering it. You only get one chance to record. I found the 2 minutes to be very tight to give a complete answer, and it gets quite stressful watching the timer count down while you answer.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time you were in a rapidly changing situation.   Answer Question
