I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in December 2013.
Interview Details – The process was very organized. I applied to a recent graduate posting on their website, soon after I received a screening call from a recruiter and was scheduled to come in the following week. The interview process was very organized and streamlined at the McLean location. They brought in a group of us, all soon to be graduates, to interview with different personnel at 30 minutes a piece. An HR representative advised us of the hiring process and as to when we would hear back from them. The very next day, I got a call to do an additional interview over the phone with someone at a different location.
Negotiation Details – I have not officially accepted yet, I am waiting to hear back from my recruiter, the salary was slightly lower than expected, but there are tons of benefits. An offer was emailed so there was no person to person involvement.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in September 2013.
Interview Details –
I applied through an employee reference and was contacted about 2 months later. After a preliminary phone interview (the basics, not hard at all) I went in for an onsite interview. There were probably 12 other interviewees attending the same 'round robin' interview day. We all sat at different tables with another chair in front of us. After a speech about the company, our interviewers walked into the room and sat in front of us. After 30 minutes, the first interviewer left and another one took the seat. This happened 3 times.
Questions were basically just getting to know you and see if you'd fit on the team. "Tell me about a project where...." or "Tell me about yourself" Nothing difficult, felt like a conversation. I was given the opportunity to ask questions . After all 3 interviewers, they herded us out of the room and told us we'd be contacted in 5 business days.
Overall, a great experience. The only bad part was my interaction with the recruiter during the offer process. She was awful and absolutely no help. She was rude during the negotiation and setting up my start date. I'm excited about the job but she was a horrible first impression of the company.

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in July 2013.
Interview Details –
Applied on the Booz Allen website for a developer position. I was contacted about a week afterwards by a recruiter. The contact was not pertaining to the job I originally applied for, but to find out what kind of positions I was looking for, as well as what my previous experience was. The recruiter stated she had several open positions matching what i was looking for and passed me along to the people responsible for those positions.
Was contacted that same week by a recruiter specific to one of those positions. General phone call discussing my background, skillset, and what the position entailed. Recruiter told me I could expect to hear back within a week.
About two days later, I received an email inviting me to an on-site interview in D.C the next day. Because of the short notice, I was unable to make it and rescheduled for the next week in McLean. The on-site only took about an hour. There were about 15 of us interviewing. They led us all to a large conference room where we had individual desks. The people interviewing you would come to your desk when they were ready.
First interview was by a senior consultant. This is a general conversation discussing my experience and the projects I had worked on. He also discussed how the company works, and tried to sell me on the company. Ended with him answering a couple of my questions.
Second interview was by a principal. He was also interested in my background, and the tools and skills I had used. He also asked more behavioral questions about such as "Why Booz", "How do you deal with clients", "Are you willing to learn new technologies".
Both interviews were very conversational and they made me feel very comfortable. No technical quiz type questions were asked, they were more interested in current work and projects I work on. After the second interview, I was done and shown out. We were told to expect to hear back in 1-2 weeks.
One week from the interview, I received a call extending me an offer. I received the offer in the email the next day.
Everyone was very helpful throughout the process, and answered any questions I had. Any time I tried to reach out to anyone, they got back to me immediately.
