Application

I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Chicago, IL) in May 2015.

Interview

The interview process was pretty straight forward. Each was timeboxed to 30 min and split evenly between building rapport and case study. These case studies were varied but focused on my industry. Due to scheduling challenges on my and the interviewer's sides, the in person interviews were on two different days.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    It started with a call from the recruiter who found my resume in her database and briefly discussed my interests and my desire to work at the company. I was asked to come in the next day for an in person interview. I went to the office and started the interview with multiple candidates where we were told about the company and the type of opportunities available. Then we broke out and individually met with 3 interviewers. The interviewers each asked personality/behavioral type questions. There was no case study. After the interview I was offered a job 3 days later and started work 2 weeks later.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview

    I first made contact through an employee working in BAH and when the position opened up I applied using an employee reference. I believe that going through an employee reference is ones greatest chance of getting to the interview process. I answered some preliminary questions regarding my background through a phone interview with their HR. Then a week later was scheduled for an in person interview. It was quite relaxed, behavioral type of questions were asked. Make sure to study about the company and incorporate it into your answers.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in January 2015.

    Interview

    I had an employee referral which turned into a phone interview followed by two more phone interviews in replacement of an on-site interview because I could not fly to DC. Never heard back after my two phone interviews even after checking with the recruiter and interviewers multiple times. Very disorganized and unprofessional.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Washington, DC) in October 2014.

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Atlanta, GA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    It was very quick and efficient. Almost too much so. One phone screen followed by an HR session that described the process. Then 40 minutes on the phone with the hiring manager. Soon after, I was brought into the office for a couple of sessions with peers. Less than a week from 1st contact to offer. The security screen was a big pain however.
