    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at The Beacon Group (Portland, ME) in December 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for the Consultant position with Beacon back in the fall of 2014. The first step was a half hour phone interview that was mostly the interviewer explaining the position and how it fits into the company, with plenty of open ended questions where I had the chance to talk about myself and why I'm generally interested. I connected with the interviewer over our mutual interest in Geography as an academic subject, and was invited to do a second phone interview with management. This second interview was where they tested you to make sure you listened during the first interview, and knew exactly how to explain the position in the context of the company. This interviewer asked more typical behavioral questions (how you work on a team, etc). I was able to connect with this person over our mutual interest of swimming. I was invited to a final round interview, in which I talked to a manager, the CEO, and two senior consultants. The interview with the senior consultants was more of an opportunity for me to ask questions, whereas the interview with the manager was more of a behavioral interview. The interview with the CEO was a series of rapid fire behavioral interview questions, ending with "why should I hire you." He put on an intense personality for the interview, so don't let that scare you. I didn't get an offer, probably because it wasn't a good fit for me.
