Very Easy Interview

Associate Interview

Associate
Annapolis Junction, MD

I applied through other source and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

Interview Details – I received an unsolicited phone call from an employee who found my resume through membership to a professional society. I was brought into an interview and they asked me 3 questions about experience and resume, then they asked me if I was willing to learn new techniques and methods for analysis, and then they asked me if I had any ethical issues with doing DOD work. Then we spend the rest of the interview talking about hobbies and interests outside of work.

Interview Question – I think the unexpected question was about whether or not I had ethical issues with DOD work. It surprised me that that they cared, but later I found out that they ask because due to the nature of the work, they did not want us to have any personal issues with the work that we did and would have placed in work that didn't keep me up at night.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They asked me first for salary and I provided a high number and they accepted. It seemed like they were in need at the time for the skill set that I had.

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in August 2010.

Interview Details – Recruiter was a contracted employee and based on his aggressiveness, he was paid on commission. I was contacted the next day after applying online and had an interview set up within a couple days. Was not interested in the first team I interviewed with, and recruiter was slow to set up second interview with another team. Second interview was much more to my interest and I expressed a willingness to entertain the opportunity. Hiring manager made an offer before I could get out to my car after the interview.

Interview Question – Most of the questions were based on determining if I would be interested in the work. Not many skill-based questions. Some behavioral questions like "Describe a time where you had a dispute with a coworker and how you resolved it." Pretty softball interview.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I wasn't initially interested in the position, so I gave them the most ridiculous salary requirement I could think of without being offensive. They accepted it and gave me an offer before I got to my car after leaving the interview.

DNI Analyst Interview

DNI Analyst
Annapolis Junction, MD

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in June 2013.

Interview Details – Interviewed for position on SDS contract. Conducted F-T-F interview with a junior employee for about 20 minutes. It was clear that they were looking for specific answers and didn't care about anything else.

Recommend that you volunteer information about your experience that you think is relevant, because they didn't ask for it. Finding out the results of the interview was like pulling teeth.

Interview Question – Every question was technical oriented, but not one about previous job experience. It is apparent that the interviewer was working off a check-list, with no effort to "personalize" the process. I could have been dressed like a Somali pirate and armed with an AK-47, as long as I said "yes" to having working knowledge of specific software apps and databases. This is how Eric Snowden got his job.   Answer Question

Data Scientist Interview

Data Scientist
Annapolis Junction, MD

I applied online and interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

Interview Details – The first interview with human resources which involved only typical questions. The second phone interview was with a data scientist from DC. This was a very relaxed interview with typical questions. My third interview was on Skype with a Data Scientist project leader. He asked several difficult behavioral questions. The position required TS/SCI clearance with a polygraph required. After filing out background information forms for security clearance I was immediately told "we regretfully do not have the right position available at this time."

Interview Question – Describe a situation where you 'hacked' something.   Answer Question
