    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Got selected through campus interview. The process lasted for 2 days. Day 1 included aptitude for half an hour to 40 mins approx and a screening round which lasted for 20 mins . Day 2 had 1 technical round again around 15 to 20 mins and a hr round for 10 mins .

    Interview Questions
    • Questions in round 1 (aptitude ) were basic quanta and verbal plus attention to details. Round 2 had majority to do with general info about the company and its performance plus some current affairs related to finance and economics. Technical round had some brain storming questions but quite easy like
      1.estimate the number of customs we deal on daily basis
      2. Why is the rupee value depreciating
      3. How can world markets affect goldman's performance etc .

      hr was the best as it gave an ample chance to express myself which I personally was looking forward to. I was asked questions like 1.what are your strengths and weaknesses
      2.how have you shown leadership and had you encountered any problems during that period and how have you overcome those issues
       3.why job over mba
      4. Give us three reasons as to how your contribution will make difference
      5. Have you had any fears or resentment in the past and how have you gotten yourself out of it

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    I was asked if I would consider the operations position in place of the position I applied for by the recruiter. I said I would and was sent to SLC that following Friday for superday. There I had 2hours worth of interviewing with 8 interviewers, 2 interviews in each session. I thought the interviews on superday went great and was hopeful to hear an offer in the coming days. However, the following Monday I received an email stating that I was not selected for the position. I am very surprised and was really looking forward to the position and culture at the SLC office. I have asked for feedback, but doubt I will receive an email back. The interview questions were all behavioral and ethical based.

    Interview Questions
    • Why GS? Why operations? Describe a time where your ethics were in question. Describe a time when you improved a process efficiency. What appeals to you about SLC? Do you see yourself here in the next 2-5 years. What is risk? What is risk within the divisions? ...etc.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs.

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume online and was contacted a few weeks later to Superday at the Jersey City offices. Three interviews back to back in 30 minute intervals. The first two were 2 on 1. However the last interview was with one person, a VP. Very standard questions, with nothing being much of a surprise. Most of the interviewers asked the same questions so it did become a repetition game after a while but the process wasn't too bad. However the questions that I thought they were going to ask, did not get asked. With one or two questions about my resume, or Why GS? and Why Operations? Most questions were about my resume, with them going in very great detail.

    Interview Questions
    • Why is your GPA so low?
      (Didn't expect this since there is not GPA minimum requirement on website or job description as is the case with most jobs)

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Goldman Sachs in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Apply online, no aptitude test
    Then you will receive e-mails from them if you are selected
    First round is interview by phone, basic questions about your CV, experience, nothing special here.
    Then the remaining three rounds are somewhat similar, but then you will have to go to their office in Central.

    Basically you face different people but answering the same questions, know your CV inside out. They dig deeply

    Interview Details

    Standard online application. Submit CV and cover letter online. Invited for face to face interview about 2 weeks later. Interview was with two vice presidents (they had both been with the firm for about 8 years each). Pretty standard questions about CV, a lot of competency questions. A good talking point is the firm's culture and their 14 business principles. I would recommend mentioning some of those that stand out for you.
