    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    After submitting documents online and passing an online psychometric test, I was called by an assistant to arrange a telephone interview. There was some confusion since my interviewer called me 15 minutes late, however was under the impression that she was 30 minutes late in calling me. After passing the phone interview, I was invited for three back to back interviews at the GS offices. The interview was unorganised and my scheduled interviewers were popping in and out to come from and return to meetings.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    Applied through my school and the GS website. First round interview with two PWMs from NYC office. Interview was 30min long. It was pretty informal, and went more as a conversation. I prepared for technical questions, but the questions were definitely more along the lines of why PWM, why would you be good at it, and some pretty standard behavioral (tell me about a time you failed, etc).
