    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview

    I applied online and very quickly got a phone interview. I had two phone interviews and then got invited to interview with the team. I flew myself out to DC so that I could interview in person and I interviewed with four members of the team I would be joining. There was a bit of confusion following the interview on hiring and which team I would join but in the end I ended up getting the original job I applied for.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    I applied online and a few weeks later was contacted by a recruiter. I then came in for a panel interview with three members of the team. They were also interviewing other candidates. They told me they would get back to me the next week, however, it ended up being a few weeks after my interview that I got an offer.

    Reasons for Declining

    I will say that I thought it was a bit odd that after the offer was given, no one on the actual team ever contacted me. I even ran into a member of the team that I interviewed with at a conference and she was pretty rude. They lost me to a company that offered a team that seemed much more happy to have me on their team (and that had better benefits). Booz is already going to be battling a reputation of being a bit cold and demanding...teams need to work on combating this perception during the interview process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    I held a lunch interview with the person who would be my mid-level manager. The next day I had a formal interview with the next level manager who was very excited about my diversity of professional experience. Both relied significantly on the recommendation of the employee who recommended me. The experience was very positive, but very different than the experience of those coming in through the Recruiting/HR department.
