    Entrevista para Quant/Strat Summer Analyst

    Candidato de entrevista anónimo en Londres, Inglaterra (Reino Unido)
    Sin oferta
    Experiencia positiva
    Entrevista difícil

    Solicitud

    Envié una solicitud electrónica. Acudí a una entrevista en Goldman Sachs (Londres, Inglaterra (Reino Unido)) en enero de 2016.

    Entrevista

    Applied on October 2015, received an invitation for two back-to-back phone interviews during christmas break. It took place on early January. First one lasted 45min with a macro trading analyst keen on a machine learning approach. The second one, a few minutes later, lasted 30min with a controllers modelling division VP, was more about B&S, stoch processes. Both were very nice and helpful when I was stuck (of course the more they help, the quicker your chances to be called back decrease).

    Entrevista para Comptroller

    Candidato de entrevista anónimo en Salt Lake City, UT (Estados Unidos)
    Sin oferta
    Entrevista normal

    Solicitud

    Envié una solicitud electrónica. El proceso duró Más de 6 meses. Acudí a una entrevista en Goldman Sachs (Salt Lake City, UT (Estados Unidos)) en octubre de 2013.

    Entrevista

    Applied online through school recommendations, emailed me about a phone interview. Had a phone interview, was invited to SLC. Mostly behavior questions. Two separate interviews each with two men. They definitely play the good cop bad cop at super day. One seemed annoyed and did not pay any attention and seemed distracted the whole time, while the other was involved and said things after each question "wow that sounds really interesting, sounds like you made a good decision in that scenario". Overall the interview was really weird, and I left not wanting the job. Applied to other jobs and accepted an offer before they got back to me. Applied in Sept, went to SLC to interview in Oct, and just recently heard back, middle of March. They also did not pay me back for expenses until FEB! Whole situation weird, and I found the really delayed check, and reply very unprofessional. SLC was great though. I also heard they offer below 50, so keep in mind before getting your heart set on Goldman.

    Solicitud

    Solicité el puesto a través de la escuela superior o la universidad. El proceso duró 2 días. Acudí a una entrevista en Goldman Sachs (New York, NY (Estados Unidos)) en febrero de 2011.

    Entrevista

    This was for their private wealth management division:
    Did two phone interviews on two separate occasions with more recent hires (both at associate level) with similar formats, but clearly different styles based on the personality of the interviewer.

    First interviewer - Around 50% background questions and 50% brainteaser types. Did reasonably well, but got hung up on the last brainteaser that I had to be guided through. Generally friendly and answered lots of my questions about the position/department. Good enough to get me to the second round...

    Second interviewer - Starts by asking about some points about my educational background and asks for elaboration. I've been asked about it in many past interviews, so talked through it quite smoothly, but he clearly didn't understand the subject at all (Monte Carlo acceleration techniques). He promptly switches the topic and start throwing math brainteasers at me one after another until I start tripping up a bit and he says "come on, time's ticking", instead of offering any hints to move the process along. Afterwards, he just says the "we'll be in touch" and hangs up. One of the rudest interviewers I've ever spoken with.

    Entrevista

    Very polite and smart interviewer. Basic probability questions. OK if you have studied the popular quant interview books. Interviewer helps if you get stuck. The interviewer started with an introduction to himself, the company and the particular division he worked in. After this, asked for any questions that I had followed by two technical questions.

    Entrevista

    Three phone interviews, then 23 (yes, not a typo) in face interviews with 4 different divisions. Got three offers. Overall, if you can stay alert and be pleasant through the whole process, you'll get the job. Everyone was very nice, and I definitely met much more malignant people at other firms.

    Make sure you already have other offers. Goldman will match/beat any offer you have, so it's best to already have attractive offers going in.
