    Application Details

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview Details

    Simple interview only few questions and most of it was like a discussion. Coming from military with lot of clearances it was a cake walk. They seemed to be prejudicial with their as they seem to make a decision to select candidates before the interview begins.

    Reasons for Declining

    Very disappointed after a recruiter has informed me that they were paying 17k more for people in lower positions with no experience if they have other job offers during negotiations. Make sure to be aware of your value or just say you have an other offer on the table.
    It made me feel sorry as the recruiting team consists of back stabbers and an attitude of low balling candidates.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview Details

    It started with a call from the recruiter who found my resume in her database and briefly discussed my interests and my desire to work at the company. I was asked to come in the next day for an in person interview. I went to the office and started the interview with multiple candidates where we were told about the company and the type of opportunities available. Then we broke out and individually met with 3 interviewers. The interviewers each asked personality/behavioral type questions. There was no case study. After the interview I was offered a job 3 days later and started work 2 weeks later.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in March 2015.

    Interview Details

    I had 2 technical interviews and one team fit for a junior position over the phone. Technical interview questions were basic computer networking/telephony questions and the team fit interview was more of a conversation. Still going through the rest of the hiring process but you are assigned an onboarding specialist and a sponsor once you start working. They originally wanted me to do a second in-person interview but decided they were comfortable making an offer and did not want to delay the process for me because I was unemployed. I received the offer letter a week later. Recruiters were very responsive to my questions.

    Interview Details

    The interview was a great experience. I had a phone interview two weeks after I applied online. I then set up a face to face interview which started with a conference call, followed by a senior consultant, and then engineers. The consultant was very helpful and a pleasure to talk with, for a moment I forgot it was even an interview.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    Good Cop bad cop to some extent. Met with manager who would be directly responsible for providing supervision in performing duties. Then two other members joined interview and conducted group questions. One interviewer was highly critical and the other was much more sensitive and understanding. After the group interview and discussion, met with Sr. Member at location who had final decision on hiring. He was cordial and fairly easy to communicate with. An offer was made by phone 3 hours following interview, the call was from a representative that is responsible for assisting in recruiting and finding candidates to fill positions (internal recruiter). She advised me they wanted to send me to Washington D.C. for standard employee training week. I told her I wouldn't be able to on such short notice and was moved to following week. Hotel and travel was amazing, company puts you in a hotel that is top class and extremely comfortable. Employee orientation week wasn't bad at all, positive experience, and easy to form good relationships with other members (vast diversity and variation in professional level in members who attended).

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    Short and sweet due to the college interview process, questions were mostly behavioral and straightforward. There was an essay writing exam in which you had to draft a memo in an hour based on information they provided, which occurred on top of the interview process. Interview was 1:1 over two days, three different interviews. Visited Booz Allen as part of the interview process as well.
