    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at The Beacon Group in July 2015.


    Interviewed for MBA graduate Manager position. The role was previously for undergrads, but this was their first opening for MBA grads. Went through three rounds of phone interviews over the course of a month. First round was with a recruiter, second with a Director, and third with SVP. Questions were pretty straight forward, but there was an emphasis on strategy and how your background/coursework played into it. After the third round, I reached out to the recruiter (who was leaving the company that very day for a new opportunity) who informed me that the company didn't fly people out for interviews and that they wanted to schedule me for more phone interviews. I received an e-mail two days later saying that they were going with a different candidate. I reached out to the new recruiter who wrote me the rejection e-mail for feedback, but I did not receive a reply. Overall, interview process was fine. I think it could have been done in a more timely manner than being dragged out for a month, but the questions were fair and straightforward. All three people that I spoke to were nice and pleasant to talk to. Two issues that did raise red flags, however: 1) that the company is not willing to fly candidates out for interviews and 2) company self admits that turnover is high.
