Every intern takes turns wrestling a shirtless Lloyd Blankfein in a kiddie pool full of mud and those who can pin him get offers.

Goldman IBD superdays (regardless of where you interview, if in the US) always consist of 3 2 on 1 interviews - they are actually shorter than a lot of other banks' superdays - should be done in 1.5 - 2 hours. It will be a mix of behavioral and technical, with more technical questions thrown at interviewers with prior banking / hardcore finance internships on their resume. That being said, the behavioral aspect is super important as GS has a distinct no-superstars / teamwork oriented culture. Be prepared for them to dig into all of your answers, and best of luck with the Lloyd wrestling part - that man can be crafty in the pit.

Can you elaborate on what you mean by "no-superstars?" I imagine you're getting at how GS wants people who aren't know-it-alls and are open to learning and can accept their place at the bottom of the ladder as interns, is that what you're getting at?

Actually less about "accepting your place at the bottom of the ladder" and more about just being a good team member. GS is a place that leverages its resources really really well - generally if you don't know the answer to a question that's finance related and you're in an industry group, you're not googling - you're reaching out to the product team member that will have encountered that problem many times. This happens at both the junior and senior levels, where you'll have a ton of different bankers coming together with different experience from running different kinds of deals. Playing well with your co-workers and not trying to outshine them goes a long way towards creating what ends up being some of the most well-prepared presentations for clients on the street (in my opinion, as a former GS banker and then someone who has sat in on banking presentations from the buy-side).

This is exactly how it was done when I had a superday in another group. You have 3 interviews, and each one is with two different employees. Each set of interviewers treats you differently, and tries to test you in different ways. Some are more friendly, while others appear stoic. Each interview is approx. 20 minutes.

Before the interview started, all of the applicants sat in a big room and chatted. Then a couple of employees came in just to kind of "shoot the breeze" and answer a few questions.

i worked there as well. we got a break with lloyd; solomon has several inches and probably 50+ pounds on him. can foresee the median height / weight of analyst classes inching higher.

how do you get an invite to a superday? I'm a rising sophomore at a business school and havennt heard much of how people get to superday

Aug 11, 2018

how do you get an invite to a superday? is it open to everyone? are there limited spots? or do you have to network into it?

Aug 2, 2018

I got 6 interviews. Back to back with only 5-10 min breaks in between (not really cause most interviews went over time). Mixed technicals and behaviorals, I would say around 40/60, and some brainteasers.

For at division was this?

How long does it usually take to hear back from a Goldman Superday

Aug 6, 2018

I heard back same day.

I had mine on a friday, just got a response from HR saying 1-2 weeks

When did you interview?

Aug 6, 2018

this 3 rounds of 2-on-1 interviews with various types of employees is standard across the street....i've done this with 3 banks...all were like this.

just google it...you're welcome

Aug 6, 2018

Yep usually 3 rounds and surprisingly not super technical. They just like to dig deep on how you think with unconventional fit questions.

Aug 3, 2018

can you please elaborate on unconventional fit questions?

Aug 8, 2018

Bump. Examples would be very helpful for recruitment in general

Aug 10, 2018

I had the 3 2-1 interviews as people have explained. Although one person liked me for his group so had another 6 1-1 interviews with people on that team. The superday interviews were more technical, the group interviews were more behavioral.

Granted this was in 2013, but I know some groups still work this way.

Aug 11, 2018

I had three and it was mostly fit-based. There was some shit HCM had prepped but the guys obviously were just more interested in having a conversation than anything else so they were pretty low-key. I didn't get any technicals at all, just some high level questions on valuation and what banking is about. Was one of the more enjoyable superdays actually. Pretty short and chill, they put you up at the Conrad which is dope. Heard back next morning from the recruiter and they sent the letter later that day over the portal.

When was your interview?

Aug 11, 2018

Couple of years ago for SA IBD Financing. Ended up wanting to do advisory and didn't take the offer which was a shame because I actually really enjoyed everyone I met with and came away with a great feeling.

using the "i'm not a finance major" line when you don't know the basics is inexcusable.

you also have had 2 ib internships and you don't know what comps and ev/ebitda is?

may want to consider backoffice at mcdonalds, and i'm not talking about corporate either

Aug 12, 2018

Lol only caveat is that that excuse does work when you're a cute girl, from what I've seen.
