    Technical Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charleston, SC
    Anonymous Employee in Charleston, SC
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    I met with hiring manager via Skype and then met with next three levels of management in person. They asked challenging questions and wanted to know more about my background and level of technical experience. I was not able to obtain much of any information from the BAH team about the position itself because the project is gov't-related and classified.

    Communications Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Arlington, VA
    Anonymous Employee in Arlington, VA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was contacted by a recruiter about a month later. The phone screen was pretty quick, all the questions were basically things she could have gotten from my online application. A week later I was scheduled for an in-person at the Crystal City office. There were about 5 other candidates interviewing for the same position when I got there. Interview was with 3 separate people from the team. Most of the questions focused on why I wanted to work for Booz Allen and some behavioral questions. Interviewers were not very relaxed and it was not really a great experience. I wasn't interested in working for them anymore and accepted another offer.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bwi Airport, MD
    Anonymous Employee in Bwi Airport, MD
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Job fair setting in hotel; each company had individual hotel rooms. Sign up was easy and recruiters very friendly and interested. Society of American Military Engineers sponsored the job fair; free to active and retired military. Shoes up about 5 min early to interview and greeted by recruiter on time. Watched my posture and unbuttoned suit jacket while sitting. Always made good eye contact and spoke deliberately and not too quickly. Tried to relax by reminding myself to be me and not someone else. I had decent discussion with recruiter about several possibilities but did come across desperate or committal since I was using the interview mainly for practice. I achieved my goal but not expecting a follow up from them and that's okay.

    Screening interview by a HR recruiter that went over my resume, and inquiry on salary requirements. She told me the maximum for the position, which I was 10% over their maximum, yet tow days later, was notified that the hiring manager wanted to meet with me and her team.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied via Booz-Allen's careers website. Booz-Allen first contacted me about interviewing with them by phone. Because it was a Friday before I was to leave on vacation, we had a couple of subsequent phone conversations while I was on vacation. Face-to-face interview was a few days after I returned. They interviewed a few other candidates for the job after that.

    Senior Associate/Senior Leader Interview

    Anonymous Employee in McLean, VA
    Anonymous Employee in McLean, VA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Process was straightforward. Went thru 2 phone interviews with recruiter, then was set up for phone interview with VP. I was cold sourced via LinkedIn so LI is working as a mechanism for being found. Most disappointing aspect was zero follow-up by recruiter after 3rd interview. I've learned as a hiring manager myself that a disconnect in follow-up at this point makes a lasting, and unfortunately negative impression of the company that is difficult to remedy. Most recruiters have figured out by now that if one isn't a fit for "this" position they may be for the next and that candidates will remember how the engagement went.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions. Primary focus ended up being work location and flexibility around using satellite offices. While assured this was acceptable by recruiter, it seemed less so when talking to VP.   Answer Question

    Intelligence Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Antonio, TX
    Anonymous Employee in San Antonio, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process with this company involved 3 separate interviews that lasted about 90 minutes. Each Booz Allen representative interviewed me for 30 minutes each. Each rep had a set of questions focusing on my qualifications, knowledge about the job, information about the company, and if I was a good fit for the company. Although this process seems grueling, the interview was very relaxing. The representatives made me feel comfortable and not like I was up against the "firing squad". At the end of the interview, one rep informed me that I should be contacted by the company within 2 weeks. I'm still waiting to hear from them.

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Impressed! After a telephone screen, by a very polished BAH Sr. Recruiter, Invited to attend a speed dating like interview event where candidates could interview with different managers working on distinct projects. Lots of coordination required of the BAH folks, but everything went smoothly and according to plan. The managers I interviewed with were both down to earth, professional and new what they were talking about. For the first time in awhile, I walked away from an interview(s) with a very positive feeling for the company and all the BAH employees I encountered along the way.
