    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ares Management.

    Interview

    Interview process started with HR screening call (20 minutes). I was called back in for a 1 hour case study and 2 interviews. The last stage was 5 rounds with the rest of the team. It was an extremely professional and well done interview process. Kudos go to the HR employee for setting the right expectations and running a very fluid process, despite the rigor of 3/4 different rounds. All in all, I could not have asked for a better experience with the company.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Negotiations were very straight forward and open. The offer was generous. Ares was very professional throughout the process. I have nothing but the utmost respect.
