I worked at Goldman Sachs full-time
Great environment and people
Long work hours and not always easy to manage work life balance
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Goldman Sachs.
Initial 1hr phone interview with an Executive Director - mainly reviewing CV and a few technical questions, was given an overview of the role and the team. No "What do you know about Goldman? Why do you want to work here? Why are you moving on?" style questions at all. Within about 1 week I was called in for an onsite interview consisting of 5 x 1 hour interviews (with a 1hr break between the 2nd and 3rd interview). Each interview had 2 interviewers, some were local and some were remote via video-conference, some were directly part of the team and some were more loosely aligned. Interviews consisted of in-depth technical questions relating directly to either the role or to items from my CV. In 5 hours of interviewing I was not asked one question about Goldman, the only sort of non-technical question I was asked was along the lines of "What was your worst mistake at work."
