Preview to 5 Goldman Sachs Interviews Below

1. Risk Mgmt Analyst Interview

Process Description

General Interview Questions, talk to a VP. Only behavior questions, like why GS, SLC, GSAM, etc.. But went very deep to the reason why I chose each step to my current position.

Sample Interview Question at Goldman Sachs:

Why you didn't continue your internship, did they give you an offer for full-time opportunity, what is the reason for you to decline the offer


2. Investment Banking Analyst Interview

Process Description

First round was one-on-one interview, with a mix of technical and 'fit' questions. Second round was three one-on-ones, and the final round was five one-on-ones. Strong emphasis on motivation throughout, and a solid mix of technical questions. Nothing completely unexpected- I would advise reading through the Vault Guide to get an overview of the basics, and then honing in on your industry specifics. Definitely would suggest developing a very clear idea of why you would choose to work within the particular industry team you are interviewing for (not just M&A). All interviewers were very personable and seemed great to work with. Pleasant experience throughout.

Example of Interview Question at Goldman Sachs:

There were a few unexpected logic brainteasers, along with a couple of questions about the specific industry group I was applying for.


3. Intern Interview

Process Description

I applied through my school's OCR and was given a first round interview conducted by two alumni. One was an Analyst and the other was a VP. They mostly asked behavioral questions, there were no technical ones because it was a back office job. They were not clear to me about what they did when I asked. There was one brain teaser. Out of the 10 interviewed on campus, 7 were invited to a super day. The super day was 4 interviews, 2 one on ones, and 2 two on ones. They let you know of the result after 3 days.

Goldman Sachs Sample Interview Question:

Tell me about your three greatest weaknesses and why they could be turned into your strengths. My three greatest weaknesses are public speaking, an urge to review the work of others, and my stubbor


4. Summer Analyst Interview

Process Description

I went through their diversity track, so it was very accelerated. They a workshop last month, and interviews at the end of the day. The next day they told me I was up for the final round a month from then. I flew up for the final round, and we had three 2-on-1 interviews.

Sample Interview Question at Goldman Sachs:

They asked about one little detail on my resume I wasn't expecting to answer, but they liked what I said.


5. Graduate Operations Analyst Interview

Completed online application in July, heard from them in October and went through 2 first round phone interviews and invited to on-site 1-1 interview a week later.
