Accounting

So I applied to Goldman and after doing the phone screen with the recruiter I'm less interested in working there. The recruiter made no sense...

I didn’t apply, they tried poaching me. Had a great phone screening call with recruiter, passed with flying colors, and they look to set something up with the hiring manager for next week. I get through to the hiring manager (mind you this is during busy season) and I politely ask ahead of time if we could reschedule as I had a high priority deliverable come up. Hiring manager calls me and says in a really foul mannered tone, real snobbish like, like I had given her a great insult asking to reschedule, and says “that’s ok no need, we’ve decided not to move forward with you at this time”. Ok w/e lady, your loss, you were the one that tried poaching me, remember? 🤣

Welcome to Goldman. Blue chip banks have that kind of power. Right wrong or indifferent they can do that type of crap

I had a similar experience with Ayco, a Goldman Sachs company recently. I asked her twice about what would the work be like and she gave a robotic answer which didn’t make any sense 🤦🏻‍♀️

just to clarify, is this Goldman back office finance function or are we talking about a IB role?

Not sure about now but in the past they had not had real HR/recruiters, they had consultants, and they don’t really know anything about specific roles.

Even though the recruiter seemed weird I would still be willing to consider them as it’s a great company to work for, from what I hear. Also perhaps others in the company are not like the recruiter you encountered
