Preview to 5 Goldman Sachs Interviews Below

1. Investment Banking SA Interview

Process Description

I applied online, and I was called to schedule an interview for the following week. The interview went very well and was a mix of technical questions and behavioral. The interviewer didn't have tons of questions for me, and at the end I had the chance to ask him about himself.

Goldman Sachs Interviews:

Everything was pretty straight-forward.


2. Securities Internship Interview

Process Description

Got a first round interview on campus, and after was flown to New York for their final rounds. The interviews themselves were very fit based, and it seems that is something Goldman values a lot. People are extremely nice, and are willing to help you out even if you don't know what you are talking about. Additionally, make sure you know your resume inside and out because Goldman tests that.

Example of Interview Question at Goldman Sachs:

Why Goldman Sachs over every other bank? What differentiates us form our competitors? Where do you see yourself in 5 years?


3. Securities Analyst Interview

Process Description

Consisted of a phone interview, and super-day. Super-day consisted of three interviews. Two were 1on1 and the last was 2on1.

Goldman Sachs Interviews:

If you had a $100 Million dollars how would you allocate it? Mental Math, stock pitch w/ follow up questions, and what's happening in the markets?


4. Controller Summer Analyst Interview

Process Description

Applied during a business conference for a club at my school. At the conference there was a career fair where I spoke to some representatives and was offered an interview. During the first round interview it was mainly behavior questions along with questions on my resume. First interview was with a VP and a recruiter at the same time. Second and third interviews were at the office in Salt Lake City each interview was with two associates. Questions were mainly behavioral with questions about my interests and school projects. A few questions about accounting topics but nothing too difficult.

Goldman Sachs Interview Question Example:

Technical accounting questions: Describe methods of depreciation, what are your opinions on a certain company and would you invest in them.


5. Summer Associate Interview

Process Description

Everyone was very personable and didn't throw any major curveballs at the Superday. Leading up to the super day, I had one cold networking call and two phone interviews. The phone interviews involved challenging my "story" and forcing me to think quickly on my feet

Example of Interview Question at Goldman Sachs:

What is a stock you like and why?
