    Interview

    Hirevue first, then super day, then you're invited to speak with the managing director of the office that you're recruiting for. I only received one question about the markets and it was very low threat.

    Interview

    I enjoyed my internship at Goldman! They took time to create an environment for every intern where they can absorb as much information as possible and still have access to the day to day work.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    This was the worst experience of my life, gave me a verbal offer and rescinded it after a month. The process itself took over 3 months in total. What a waste of time and energy
