Network Engineer (Entry) Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
McLean, VA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in March 2014.

Interview Details – Applied online, got a call within a week. Set up an interview date. When I arrived, there were other candidates waiting for the recruiter. We all when up together, there were about 8 of us, and were given a quick orientation. Then we sat with the hiring managers who were each waiting for us in a room that was labeled with our names. I interviewed for the network engineer manager first. He asked me a TCP/UDP question and DMZ question. Then 30 minutes later I interviewed with 2 more managers. Its been exactly a week and I'm still waiting for a response from HR. They said we should hear back from them in a week.

Interview Question – Asked me about DMZ and how it works   Answer Question

Health Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Atlanta, GA

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in December 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online and through a university job website in November 2013. I received a phone call at 7:30pm a month and a half later asking me a few questions and inviting me to come in to the Atlanta office for an interview. I had three 30 minute interviews (no case studies, classic behavioral questions). It has been three months and I haven't heard back, I sent the recruiter a follow up email about 2 weeks ago and haven't heard anything. At this point I've pretty much ruled it out.

Interview Question – One of the interviewers interrupted me several times and asked if I thought I knew everything since I was a college student.   Answer Question

Junior Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

Interview Details – The whole thing has been pretty drawn out. I submitted an application through the BAH website but wasn't contacted for an interview until 2 months later. The interview itself was pleasant—teleconference with two senior consultants that lasted about 45 minutes—and they spent an adequate amount of time explaining the details of the position as well as the working environment at BAH. I had a positive feeling at the end of the interview and was told that I should hear back in a few days (so far it's been a week, and I haven't heard a peep).

[I'll update this when I hear from them one way or another]

Interview Question – One of the interviewers asked me what factors I take into play when making an "industrial" engineering decision and to give an example; the question was mostly difficult because, since it is an entry level position, most of my experience is in academia.   Answer Question

Analyst Interview

Analyst

Interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton

Interview Details – It was in the Mclean office. It was group oriented pretty much like speed dating. each interviewee would sit in front of one or two interviewers. Not bad, real relax, business attire (suit&tie). First a phone interview then next they invite you to sit down with interviewers at a later date

Interview Question – tell me an example of a strong work ethic and why   Answer Question

Consultant Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
McLean, VA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in September 2010.

Interview Details – I was invited to a group, speed dating-style interview. Everyone I had contact with in scheduling the interview was very professional and helpful. When I arrived, I was impressed by the building. They clearly were used to interviewing a lot of people and the process was very well organized. All the interviewees sat at tables and interviewers rotated on set intervals. The people I met with were interesting and I enjoyed speaking with them. One thing that struck me as odd was the age range of the other interviewees. I would say the ages ranged from 25-45. I'm guessing they were interviewing for a variety of positions. One of the interviewers told me each person had something different they were supposed to interview for.

Interview Question – We ended up talking about the dress code (suit), and that was unexpected.   Answer Question

Health Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Herndon, VA

I applied online - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in October 2013.

Interview Details – I filled out an application online and someone contacted me for an initial phone screening a week later. The recruiter that I worked with was very nice but couldn't give me any additional information about the position I was interviewing for. I had an onsite interview the next week in VA. The interview was round robin style and I met with one health care analyst and another recruiter. The health care analyst asked me my skill set and told me about projects she was working on. The recruiter asked me behavioral questions. I never heard back from anyone regarding my application.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you had to ask your supervisor for help?   Answer Question
