Application

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

Interview

Get spammed for potential work (not funded) by HR contractors. Sit through an interview given empty promises. Sit at the Herndon office for two days of Indoctrination, the pinnacle of which was an ethics board game.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    Interviews are generally behavior-based questions. You will be grilled around your expertise and fit with the firm's culture. Stay persistent with recruiters; they tend to be lackadaisical with follow-up.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    The company does not take kindly to negotiation. The recruiter made me feel like they were going to revoke my offer when I asked for more money.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Annapolis Junction, MD).

    Interview

    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 Questions

    • 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

    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.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview

    It was a straight forward interview. I was asked about previous experiences and how they may relate to the current task order. The interview was a panel process where I was interviewed by multiple team members. I think they're more interested in background coupled with personality fit.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation. The offered a lower salary and would not negotiate on vesting or vacation to compensate.

    Interview

    After a fairly standard pre-screen process I was invited to an 'interview event' where four Senior Associates rotated through asking questions. Most of the questions are situational based but I have heard of case interviews as well. Mostly it was about being able to quickly establish a rapport with the interviewer and express oneself well.

    Interview Questions

    • No surprise questions, they do a good job getting you ready for what to expect.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No ability to negotiate - take it or leave it
