Preview to 5 Goldman Sachs Interviews Below

1. Summer Sales and Trading Analyst Interview

Process Description

Applied via OCR. Was one of ten selected to interview with two alumni is S&T. Was one of 2 juniors and 1 sophomore (3 total) sent to a superday. My superday was in NYC (travel expenses paid) at 200 west. Superday was in the afternoon. about 30-40 other students were also there from all different universities. Drinks, cookies, and fruit was provided. We all had three 2 on 1 interviews with VPs and MDs in S&T. Got the offer the next day. Was given one week to accept or decline.

Goldman Sachs Interviews:

Very Markets Focused. Asked me to walk them through my resume, and there were the usual why GS questions


2. 2015 Full Time Analyst Interview

Process Description

Networked with Goldman Employees in in the second half of 2013 to recruit for a Summer Analyst position. Got the superday in January, but ended with no offer. HR Reached out to me mid-summer 2014 to see I had a return offer elsewhere - I did from another Bulge Bracket. They offered me a superday, which I accepted. Superday'd mid-August (consisted of three 1 on 1's). No offer.

Goldman Sachs Sample Interview Question:

Two companies have identical EV/EBITDA multiples but different P/E multiples. What could be a few reasons for this?


3. Summer Analyst - IBD Interview

Process Description

First round on campus, 1 on 1. This was the first year GS did on campus interviews for my school so it was a bit of a new process for the school, but I progressed past that to the superday. Superday was 3, 2 on 1 interviews with associates and VPs. Asked a lot about my resume, and typical banking questions. I did prep ALOT thought so I had a pretty good understanding of most questions. Everyone was extremely nice/chill/etc. , easily my best interview experience. Interviews did take place at the JC office btw.

Example of Interview Question at Goldman Sachs:

Asked a good amount about current events. What is the one question you wish we would have asked you. LBO questions. Know the debt tranches, etc. Time value of money questions


4. Operations Analyst Interview

Process Description

I applied for this position in September and received an email for an interview in late December for an interview in January. The interview consisted of three back to back interviews with two members of Goldman. The questions were behavioral based. There was a question about ethics, but they are primarily looking to see if you fit in with the team. The people seemed very boring, in my opinion.

Goldman Sachs Interviews:

What would you do if your manager asked you to do something unethical? I said that I would approach my manager and ask them if that is what they want.


5. Investment Banking Summer Analyst Interview

Process Description

2 on 1 interview first round, followed by three 2 on 1 interviews in the final round. 30 minutes each. No technical questions in the first round, but a fair dose in round 2. Goldman is very fit in its interviews. Be funny, convince them that you are a leader.

Example of Interview Question at Goldman Sachs:

Why should we hire you? Told them I was prepared to do banking and had solid accounting knowledge. Also, stressed my athletics background.
