Interview Details

I'll have a more detailed account once (if/when) an official definitive decision is shared with me. I've interviewed twice with them, to different but similar roles. Never given any feedback, but wonder if it's by design that the last person in the round of (2-3) 30-minute speed-interviews deliberately appears disinterested, perhaps to see how I handle it as a candidate or potential consultant? Or did first person just say fughedaboutit? Or am I just that unlucky or uninteresting or unqualified?

Any one else have that "tactic" or "situation"?

I'd rate interview as easy and conversational and perhaps misleading, a positive experience because it's enjoyable, but neutral no opinion because not kept in process or decision loop,

    Interview Details

    Horrible. Three people came in to talk to me and the second told me there wasn't anything for me. When the recruiter came in and I told her that, I thought she was going to pass out. Needles to say that was 7 years ago.

    • I do interviews now as a manager...be yourself. Remember, it's what you can add to Booz Allen..   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I should have been a better negotiator, but that was 7 years ago and I was young...always negotiate...worst they can say is no and you take their original offer.

    Interview Details

    Three or four rounds of interviews with different Senior Associates looking to fill open billets in different parts of the firm. It was basically the same general (easy) questions asked over and over again. Each one just wanted to make sure you have a pulse and a clearance

    Interview Details

    Honestly, it's like speed dating, most important in the interview is the social dynamic and the ability to think on your feet. There will be technical questions however if you're competent in your field you shouldn't have a problem

    Interview Questions
    • There really wasn't any, the company is a consulting company so they more are looking to see if you can sell them on you   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    we went back and forth a few times, I told them that I must hit a certain number, when he came back with his final offer that was 1k below my number I almost got upset with him. The company is big enough to where they "could" hit my number and they just were being cheap so I forced them to come up that last bit to hit where I told them I wanted

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in February 2009.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with three individuals from the team. I spent a half hour with each and answered questions about my background. They had come to the interview with a copy of my resume and asked questions--some appeared to have read the content before meeting me and others did not. Each asked a variety of experiential and behavioral questions.
