Application Details

I applied online – interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

Interview Details

I applied for the position online and was contacted by a recruiter a few weeks later about availability to attend a recent graduate recruitment event with the Strategic Innovation Group. The recruitment event was round-robin style in which I interviewed with 3 teams that were interested and had openings. Each interview lasted 30 minutes and met with 2-4 people employees. I appreciated that the interviewers were prepared and asked relevant questions. Everyone with whom I interacted, employees and other interviewees alike, had a great attitude and dynamic personalities.

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

    Interview Details

    I applied to several positions on line and had a family member who worked there contact recruiters with a simple follow-up email. The family member did not support the same industry, so there was no "in" in that sense.

    I came in and went through 5 or so 1:1 interviews in a row, including an additional one with HR which was all information sharing from their end. I was right out of college, so the 1:1 interviews were basic behavioral questions, asking why I was interested in the health industry, asking for examples of client service experience, etc. Very standard.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview Details

    Participated in on-campus recruiting. Of the 9 companies I interviewed with my Senior year, BAH was the only one that made me feel like the interviewer was trying to get to know me as a person. It was not an interrogation, nor was it full of standard questions that everyone has pre-prepared answers for. It was a genuine conversation. Ultimately, this is why i chose BAH

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Job fair setting in hotel; each company had individual hotel rooms. Sign up was easy and recruiters very friendly and interested. Society of American Military Engineers sponsored the job fair; free to active and retired military. Shoes up about 5 min early to interview and greeted by recruiter on time. Watched my posture and unbuttoned suit jacket while sitting. Always made good eye contact and spoke deliberately and not too quickly. Tried to relax by reminding myself to be me and not someone else. I had decent discussion with recruiter about several possibilities but did come across desperate or committal since I was using the interview mainly for practice. I achieved my goal but not expecting a follow up from them and that's okay.

    Campus recruiting - I had an on campus interview and received a verbal offer three months later. I'm pretty sure it was because of the internal changes. I have yet to receive the official offer.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed on campus and received a verbal offer within a week. It took around 2 months before I received and accepted the official written offer. Although HR wasn't always the most transparent regarding why it was taking so long to transition from verbal to a written, everyone I met and spoke to were very pleasant. During those 2 months, I would always receive a call from HR every week/two weeks indicating their continued interest, allowing me the opportunity to then ask about what the next steps were.

    Interview Questions
    • All behavioral questions. During an information session on campus, we were told Booz Allen does not ask case study questions.

      However, my experience strongly aligned with the department I was going into, so a lot of my behavioral question responses were related to that.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I got an on campus interview the day after the career fair at my school. I had two interviews with different groups at the DC office. After the interviews, I was given a verbal offer and they said they would fly me down to check out both groups before extended a formal, written offer. Everyone I spoke to was nice and intelligent. I was very surprised to be given an offer so quickly.

    Interview Questions
    • I had one normal case (a business decision that required asking more questions for information and a lot fo mental math), then I had a case with no math where they simply asked me what my general approach to the problem would be. I liked this because there was little pressure to arrive at a 'right answer' in the second case - they just wanted to see how I think about problems.

      I was given a choice of a coding interview question or a brainteaser, and I chose the brainteaser. It was pretty straightforward.
