Nice gig if you can get it. 70 k base, 10 k sign on and a potential bonus. Considered to be middle office. Check out GS website. They have a pretty good description. I'd suggest preparing as if you were preparing for a S&T or AM interview - you need to know the markets pretty well.

Isn't it too late to get a FT offer though? Are you interviewing through special channels?

Hi Krypton,

Thank you for the information.

I just applied through my school recruiting gig.

Could you please explain more about when you said I have to know the market pretty well? I understand that Treasury is focused on funding and liquidity risk management so they have to know how much cash is coming in or going out at certain date and have the funding in advance but I do not understand why I would have to know the market pretty well?

Morevoer, what kind of questions should I be prepared for?

Thanks for your help!

I am a college student myself, but I once interviewed for a Treasury position at a European bank. Yes, it's about managing liquidity but you need to know about where they invest their excess cash, and how they manage those investments. I would recommend having a solid knowledge of the treasury market, Fed, QE etc.

I didn't get the offer.

Do you go to a target school? Can you explain how you are getting an interview so late?

Yes, I go to a target school.

Can anyone help me with what kind of questions were asked during the interview? If you are currently working here or worked here before, what is like? How are/were the experiences?

Please help! My interview is this week!! Thank You!!!

Fed Reserve and QE

I actually disagree with the above poster. That sounds more like a Capital Markets position. This is Treasury aka Controllers. OP's interview should be mostly behavioral.

I would focus my attention less towards the secondary markets and more on the financial statements. Know the difference between the income statement and the balance sheet. Maybe a couple of leverage ratio questions might be thrown in. Be able to walk them through the financial statements and know how they link. Other than that, have your behaviorals solid (emphasize hard work etc.).

Plus, its not too late for FT interviews. I just had a BB superday last week.

Thanks Kruzon. What does OP stand for? Have you had any experience interviewing for the Treasury group? Many Thanks!

suv8080, OP stands for Original Poster. Which is generally the person who started the thread.

Hi guys,

I have this interview coming up. Any other information that any of you would like to relay to me? Many thanks!

Is this the equivalent of treasury management for corporations?

If so, Im not sure what an analysts role would be besides counting the pennies of revenue their group brings in. Most of what these groups do seem operations-driven.

Sidenote: if this isnt what GS calls their TM division, then ignore what Ive written

From what I know, this is different than TM. Corporate treasury deals completely with funding the firm. They manage liquidity risk, work with bankers on new debt issuances, and handle a variety of other responsibilities. It's definitely MO though. I know the starting salary for first-year is 65k + 10k signing, but not sure about bonus, skill set learned, or exit opportunities. any insight?

Apr 9, 2014

I think a lot of the experience/exit ops/bonus also depends on what teams you get placed on. I can see unsecured debt or similar areas doing fairly well, but I can imagine some of the groups (maybe liquidity management or those dealing with regulators) being more in line with some BO functions/pay. Thoughts?

Apr 9, 2014

General note for any interview, try to read the WSJ daily for a week or two prior to the interview to be fluent in current affairs. Try to have an opinion about the market and two to three facts supporting it.

Bump I got another interview with GS in their Controller division. Just wondering if anyone else has advice for this division.

Apr 9, 2014

Better is subjective. Most would disagree, but those looking for life-work balance who don't really care about business school or buy-side might agree with him. Same idea of doctor versus nurse -- the average person thinks a doctor is more highly-regarded, but many would rather be a nurse because of the cost/difficulty of med school and residency. With that analogy in mind, think of corp treasury as nurse and IB as doctor
