    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.

    Interview Details

    Online application after meeting them at a job fair. After 3 weeks invitation to first interview in their office (30min), afterwards final round of interviews (3x30min). Did not have final round yet.
    First round was purely behavioural based but nothing out of the ordinary. Show confidence and have a good story or to possibly a laugh. They want to know if it would be pleasant to work with you.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    Applied through school, heard back about an interview within a week and had first round interview the week after. Recruiting for summer positions began in late October which is normally unusual for banks. Has a 1 v 2 interview with an Associate and a VP. Interviewers were very nice, especially considering I thought I would get interviewed by a jaded analyst.

    Interview Questions
    • Had previous banking experience so all questions were centered around that. Mostly 1) walk me through a deal you worked on, 2) why did this multiple make sense to you?, 3) how did the company's multiples compared with precedent transactions?, and other questions of the sort   Answer Question

    Applied through school career fair and got response a week later. Then a phone interview was scheduled. The interview was pretty nice and he first went over my resume, and later we did some Brian storm. They want you to know probability and statistics, but some intuition and insight points is enough..

    The process was pretty standard. The interview was a mix of technical and motivational questions as well commercial awareness . The interview was a friendly process. None of the questions was difficult or unexpected. Technical questions were about how you would project company's FCF and how the company can boost its free cash flow. I was also asked some industry specific questions.
