Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in December 2014.

Interview

In person, multiple phone screenings, coding interview. Very unprofessional, passed along to multiple recruiters, never knew my point of contact. Process took very long and felt in the dark 99% of the time. Coding interview was difficult, screenings were mostly resume/fit based. Most of the wait attributed to background screenings.

    Interview

    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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview

    After finding my resume in their database a recruiter contacted me about a possible new graduate position opening up. The questions were pretty standard interview questions. The recruiter asked if I was willing to relocate, general background information, leadership capabilities. The interview went okay for a first, but they were looking for someone with more of a technical background.

    Interview Questions

    • Since it was the first call I did not expect to get a question about my salary expectations.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Washington, DC) in October 2012.

    Interview

    I have been referred for a handful of jobs with BAH throughout the past year, and I have had a negative experience in the times I have been contacted by HR. The time I did finally get an interview, it was done by phone from a subcontractor hired by BAH. This subcontractor is a one-woman-shop who uses the same phone number to conduct BAH business as well as sell her own cruise line/travel agency services among other businesses she has on the side. This was her own personal phone number as well, not a company number. I found all of this out after i did a google search of this person and had my friend who works for BAH look her up in their system. Needless to say, her questions/responses were very unprofessional and she was very aggressive on the phone. She treated me as if I did not know what I was talking about or had any idea what I was doing. She accused me of not having any real interest in a job because I expressed flexibility in the particular work role I was interested in. After the 20min conversation she tells me it wasn't a job interview, it was a "clearing" system BAH uses to create profiles for prospective employees. And when she asked if i had ever applied for a job at BAH and i said yes, she accused me of lying because she could not find me in their computer system. Needless to say, I quickly became disinterested in working for BAH. I have had other HR personnel email me to follow up on applications and not one has bothered to respond to my inquiry of how things are moving along or expressed any further interest. I can confidently say that this is a BAH problem and not a problem with my qualifications or interview style as i have received multiple offers from top contractors and federal agencies. There are many other internal issues BAH has, including ineffective leadership, lower than average compensation, reduced benefits, and poor values and ethical practices. I do not recommend BAH to any professional. There are other contractors out there with better practices and values than BAH.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Tampa, FL) in July 2012.

    Interview

    Absolutely disgusting. BAH won a Governemnt contract bid and interviewed many of the personnel that worked for the previous contractor. We were invited to an "open house" after hours 5:30 pm and then asked to stay for interviews with BAH personnel and their sub contractor companies that were not even aware of what they would be doing for the government.

    Interview Questions

    • What exactly do you currently do for the government customer? The interviewer did not know what the duties were for the position I held and was being interviewed for again.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not much until my previous employer offered me a different postion and BAH was not going to be able to deliver on the promises they made to the government customer that there would be a smooth transition. Program manager right out lied to perspective employees and the government customer

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Rockville, MD) in December 2011.

    Interview

    Phone interview was behavior-based interview. Asked about current work, past experiences, and some "describe a situation where..." questions. Was invited to an onsite interview to talk with a series of different team members, ranging from top dog to newcomer. 4/6 people were very engaging, and had lots of relevant questions; other 2 were a bit removed, either due to topic area or something else.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 7 weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview

    I sent in my resume through a university hiring initiative and got a call to schedule an interview time within 12 hours. I interviewed with two people who would have been my supervisors ,three days later. The interview was mostly easy and involved a lot of current events questions. However, it was obvious that they had not looked at my resume beforehand because they asked if I spoke Spanish and if I had a security clearance or had lived in the DC area, which one glance at my resume would have indicated I did not. They told me I would know within two weeks. After multiple phone calls and emails, no one responded. Seven weeks later I got an email from the university career services office on their behalf saying that I was not selected. They did not even tell me themselves but had to go through an intermediary. Overall, I was very disappointed that it took so long and that this was obviously such a haphazard process.
