Let's see Paul Allen's card

Anyone get 3 separate emails for a hirevue but online only one application/location shows that your status is "received hirevue?"

Yepp lowkey kinda bummed thought it meant I had more

You get 1 try. 45 send to prep and 2 mins to respond. Questions are behavioral and situational. You get 1 'technical' question… could be more if you applied to another division. 'Technical' questions are barely technical, if you could even call it that. They were pretty easy in my opinion…like if you don't know this… you're going to have REAL problems on a SD.

Nah. Did Hirevue mid July. I dont believe I've been dinged but not sure how GS is working this year in terms of GMD recruiting.

Edit: Seems like no one has gotten a SD for GMD or AMD so maybe there is still hope.

I did a HV during the first wave of IBD but also applied to GMD. I haven't received another HV for GMD, but it says "Current status is HireVue Completed." Does this mean I am still in the running or no? I saw others got multiple HVs, but I have only received the one.

Did network earlier this year and stayed in contact with her. Applied through GS website though. Am a female hispanic but have no accent and can't speak a lick of Spanish. Hireview Q's were easy so I was extremely confident but of course there's always doubt no matter how well you do.

Got a SD for Thursday. Stressed out of mind. Any advice?

Aug 18, 2021 - 12:58am

Can't say that yet…last year there were 3 rounds. They were on 8/18-19, 8/27-28, and 9/1-9/2.  This week is the first wave of SDs…still hopefully another 2 more coming.  Stay positive!

Super relaxed and conversational! The rooms moved super quick though I felt like 20 minutes almost wasn't enough. Each room I think the interviewer has one standard question they have to ask you (all behavioral) and the rest is just up to them.

Had a really good interviews. They were really nice and all seemed like great people to work with. I appreciated the format / questions they used.

Just wanted to put this out there. If you were part of the Aug 19 SD. Congrats. Like its incredible to even get to the SD from GS so give your self a pat on the back. I know so many people on this page would kill for that type of opportunity. Enjoy the weekend and enjoy life a bit more. I hope as many people as possible will receive an offer. It was the first SD so I assume all spots are still open.

Best of luck and will update this on Monday with news.

Got the verbal offer yesterday at 430pm EST from HR! SD on 8/19 - nontarget, nondiversity. Would love to connect with anyone that also got the offer, help anyone in the process, or share any advice

Continuing to wait. Looks like offers will be extended through Wednesday. The wait is killing me though.

Dont know what to say. Really confused as GS handed offers the day of or next day. We are on Day 5 entering Day 6. Makes me want to bash my head against a rock. 

Also confused as no one seems to have received an offer today. Doesnt seem like the class has been fully compiled. Any thoughts? 

Aug 24, 2021 - 7:51pm

Agreed. Seems like a decent chunk of people have gotten offers yesterday although its hard to tell how many there have been outside of WSO too.

Sounds like we might hear back tomorrow but the way its been going so far who knows. Do you think its worth it to reach out to HR?

Aug 25, 2021 - 12:19am

Good luck everyone!

Last day for offers should probably be tomorrow.  Judging by last years thread there should be a second round of SDs next week, but they are probably trying to figure out how many offers to give out and how many spots are still left.

Just got denied. Pretty devastated as I thought it went well. Congrats to all who got in. 

Aug 25, 2021 - 9:03pm

Has anyone heard abt any other super days? I know someone above mentioned that last year there were 3 rounds (8/18-19, 8/27-28, and 9/1-9/2)... but it seems like they just sorted out results from last weeks SD ...

yeah but it's for like almost three weeks from now so my take is that they are probably going to interview the candidates they really want in an earlier superday?

Aug 30, 2021 - 3:58pm

Congrats! Target? Diversity?  If you dont mind sharing?  Can you let us know the date the SSD is on? Thanks!

Maybe they are just doing 1 more SD and waiting for any candidates from the previous SD to decline their offers, so that they know the exact number of spots left and this final SD will make up their incoming class.  Makes sense to just do 1 more…if they already handed out a significant amount of offers.
