    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by recruiter for a preliminary phone interview with basic HR questions. Profile was then sent to hiring managers. Invited to an onsite Hiring Event and interviewed with three groups of two interviewers. The groups were of different teams and positions. It is not a normal interview where you sit for one specific position. Each group went through my resume and asked how about my experience would fit into their respective position. Each group has 20 minutes face time, and the entire process was about 90 minutes. Specifically mention a date that the recruiter would get back. Recruiter confirmed an offer from one of the team in the next week.

    I applied online – interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview Details

    Awesome process! Great that I've experienced various other interviews prior to my interview with Booz Allen Hamilton. They begin with an over the phone interview and if you pass the basics(knowledge about the company, the position, your own resume topped with a positive ambitious attitude - you should expect an email invitation to the next round). My session was a group session with interviewees looking to fill various other rolls within the company. There is a question and answer group portion(ask at least one genius question) and then you will be individually interviewed by 2-3 employees of the company that will be potentially working with you on the project you are interviewing for.
