    I have been working at Goldman Sachs full-time (More than a year)


    Incredibly smart, driven workforce - everybody wants to succeed.


    Working in GS operations, you get a lot of people bragging about what schools they went to; many of my co-workers come off as stuck-up and dismissive if they hear that you didn't go to a top-tier school. I felt at a slight disadvantage when I first started and had to prove my intelligence coming from a large state school.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.


    I had the opportunity to use Goldman Sachs' new HireVue applicant pre-screening tech for an IMD Internship I applied for in August, and interviewed in September. The pre-recorded questions are multi - faceted, which I allowed to throw me off my game. I have not heard back from HCM, but I am confident that I will not be extended an offer to attend superday.
