Preview to 5 Goldman Sachs Interviews Below

1. Summer analyst Interview

Process Description

Hello, I got a first round itw for a summer analyst position in London for GSAM. I applied to the investment management division and i got an interview for the third party distribution divion- sub advisory desk. I got basical fit question like : Why Investment Management, Why Goldman Sachs, How will you invest 10Mm pounds , Will you invest on the s&p 500 and why, What make you different from other candidates.... I got the itw 2 days ago so i am still waiting the response.

Goldman Sachs Sample Interview Question:

I expected each question but i was little bit surprised when she ask me which indice i will select for investing and why.


2. Analyst, Credit Risk Management and Advisory Interview

Process Description

I was flown in for one day for 2 interviews. Both were fit-based given my lack of financial background. I was called back in for a superday a couple weeks later. The superday consisted of 6-7 back to back (~20min) interviews. Some interviews were with one interviewer, some with two. Most were fit-based, some asked me to consider things I would think about when if trying to evaluate how well a company could pay back debt.

Goldman Sachs Sample Interview Question:

What things would you think about to determine how well Apple could repay some debt? Other questions were pretty straightforward, ie walk me through your resume, etc.


3. Investment Management Summer Intern Interview

Process Description

I am a sophomore coming from a liberal arts school, so I kind of had the cards stacked against me. Goldman has a pretty strict diversity requirement for sophomores, especially for IBD. I got an interview because my family knows a Partner at GS. Super day was for Investment management. Had two thirty minute interviews in the morning, one with an MD from Third Party Distribution, another with a VP from Private Wealth. Got a call around 1:30pm that I had afternoon interviews. Had two blocks, each an hour and a half each, with TPD and PWM.

Goldman Sachs Interview Question Example:

All the expected fit questions. Since this isn't IB, the technical questions are light.


4. Analyst Interview

Process Description

They ask a question and if you answer the question, the interviewer will make the questions harder and harder until you reach your intellectual limit. At that point, the interviewer will continue to ask you questions of a similar difficulty for an extended period of time. The point of this is to test your stamina. The interview process is also quite slow and through. The entire process lasts a couple of weeks and you interview with many different people.

Goldman Sachs Interview Question Example:

There weren't any unexpected interview questions. The most difficult questions were extremely technical in nature.


5. Human Capital Interview

Process Description

OCR for human capital division. Phone interview which lasted about 30 minutes. Received a response in about two business days for on campus interview. On campus interview lasted 30 minutes as well.

Goldman Sachs Sample Interview Question:

Pretty much was a behavioral interview. Standard questions like why Goldman, why human capital, tell me about a leadership experience.
