Intern Interview

Application Details

I interviewed through college or university. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

Interview Details

I submitted my resume via email after our department head forwarded out an email from Booz Allen Hamilton saying that they would be on campus in one month and were looking for interns. I interviewed on the same day as an exam and was exhausted throughout it, but overall came across as more peppy than I would have on more sleep. Interview asked a few questions about my experience and the different groups at Booz Allen Hamilton and where I could feasibly end up. Additionally, several questions were asked regarding my comfort with the background check that all employees must undergo.

I completed the background check shortly after my interview and received a verbal offer about a month later.

Interview Questions
  • The most difficult question would be what you wanted to do for them, because there was so little information that they could give you about what they did.   Answer Question
Reasons for Declining

I ended up declining the position because Booz Allen Hamilton was unsure that my clearance would be complete by the start of the summer - in which case they would change my offer to full time. That meant I would need to continue looking for internships and I felt a bit locked in to the full time position if my clearance wasn't ready in time for summer.

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied online in November for a summer internship, received e-mail to set up phone screening in mid January. After initial phone screening I setup another interview with 2 different people. Each interview lasted about 30 minutes and was comprised of a technical interviewer and a behavioral interviewer. Everything was done over the phone. About a week later I received an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Technical questions weren't very difficult. Mostly comprised of what I knew about computer programming languages. There was one behavioral question that caught me off guard. It was "Recall a situation in which you faced a difficult challenge and how you overcame it."   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    As an intern I didn't have much room to negotiate.

    I contacted the Atlanta office directly. Interviewed via phone then in person. No tricky questions. They just asked about my background and what I wanted out of the internship. In-person interviews consisted of 3 different 1-on-1interviews throughout the few hours I was there. Each person had a different background, and therefore asked a slightly varied set of questions.

    The process took a day - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    There were three different division from Booz Allen there: Software Development, Cyber technology, and Analytics. Each division had 3-4 pairs of interviewers and you rotated through each pair. This led to quick paced interviews with over 20 different people from Booz Allen. While it felt semi-rushed, it was nice because it gave you multiple opportunities to make a good impression. Instead of having one chance to connect with the interviewer, you had several. It also gave you the ability to learn more about each different division.

    If you did well, you get an unofficial offer a few days later, potentially from more than one division. You can then say what division you liked the most and then they will work on extending you an official offer

    The process took a day - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    the interview was a conference call with 4 different managers, one of them was a little late so I had to repeat half of the questions they asked me. They seemed very friendly and they were not trying to make me uncomfortable. Unfortunately, I never heard back from them, not even to say they were unable to give me the internship.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview Details

    Very important to have another employee refer you through the firms employee referral program. Be sure to know about the firms 10 core values. Also, be specific on what you would like to focus your work on, both function (strategy, IT, analytics, etc...) and industry (i.e. DoD, DHS, IRS, etc....). Commercial consulting is not the focus of the company so dont make it the focus of what you are looking for.

    Interview Questions
    • I was not well versed on the government, so i could not speak specifically to the type of agencies that i would like to support. do some research on this prior to your interview.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
