Goldman Sachs

Hi! I’ve been at Goldman for 10 months now and got approached by a faang recruiter and interviewed thinking it would be good practice. I ended up getting a product job and that was my long term plan post mba. The pay is also over double what I’m currently making. My boss isn’t the nicest and I’m really nervous about putting in my two weeks. Is it bad I’m leaving within 10 months? Any tips for putting in my two weeks or what to say? Thank you in advance for the help

Interview

Applied through GS website. Received an invitation for an interview after about a week. Then I had an interview with 2 VPs, followed by a Superday (3 back to back interviews) with 6 VPs. Next, it was another interview with one more VP. Lastly, an onboarding "interview" with a recruiter to negotiate salary and talk about the next steps. Overall, a fairly lengthy interview process but none of the interviews were difficult. From the time of application to the final interview it probably took a month to a month and a half.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about a time when you had multiple commitments and how did you manage that.
  • Why do you want to work at GS?
  • What about this position interests you?
  • Tell me a bit about yourself
  • How do you work with teams?
  • What do you want to be doing in 5 years?
  • What do you know about ISDA agreements?
  • Tell me about a time when you made a mistake, what did you do, what did you learn, and how would you handle it now?
  • You just submitted a monthly report and you realized that you made an error on some part that is rarely reviewed. What would you do?
  • Tell me about a time you were faced with an unfamiliar subject and how did you handle it
  • How do you like to be managed?

Hirevue Interview: 5 behaviorial questions. Fairly simple questions such as "walk me through the resume" and "what would you do when in such and such situation". Early Careers is a rolling-basis recruitment so you tend to wait a lot after the first round of interview.
