Interview Details –
I was contacted by a recruiter about a month after I submitted my application online and she set up a time to do a phone interview the following week. During the phone interview she asked me about my background and experiences and ended by inviting me to an onsite interview and asking what my desired salary was.
Prior to the interview I had to complete a timed writing assessment and fill out an extensive application/credit report & background check disclosure form (this is in addition to the application I had already completed on the BAH site)
When I arrived at the on-site interview the next week there were three other people being interviewed. We all had similar backgrounds and while HR told us that we were not interviewing for the same position I am pretty sure that we were as we all had applied to same posting. After a quick overview of the company and benefits I was ushered into a room by myself (it was very tiny and windowless with a phone on a small table and 2 chairs). I then had one person come in and interview me looking for consulting skills, the next was looking for my functional skills and the third and final interview was looking for leadership qualities.
I was told it would be about a week before I heard back and 1.5 weeks later the recruiter called to let me know that they had not made a decision. Finally, about 3 weeks to a month after my interview she called to let me know that I would not be "continuing on in the process". After the interview the other interviewees and I had exchanged information and none of them were offered the position either. BAH did not offer any feedback as to why I was not a good fit for the position (or if they decided to not hire at all).

Interview Details – The interview process was very similar to speed dating. Probably 20-30 candidates in one room each sitting at their own table. The interviewers would rotate from each table to talk with each candidate. It took maybe 3 hours. This was all after a phone interview to qualify for this round.
