    Lead Technologist Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Baltimore, MD) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Invited to a Booz Allen job fair. Sat down with several tables, each had a project lead and technical lead. Technical leads would go first and do a stump the chump bit then the project lead would ask management questions. Pretty standard. Each project varied greatly in the range of questions. They gave me a written offer before I left the room.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were pretty standard about networking protocols and things I have done in the past. What is your level of Python experience? How much Linux have you used? What was the biggest hurdle you overcame in your virtual environment?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Awkward, mostly my thought I think. They gave me an offer, I talked to friends and looked on GlassDoor but there wasn't much out there. I countered 5 % higher and benefits. Got nothing, took the deal anyway.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview

    I applied online and very quickly got a phone interview. I had two phone interviews and then got invited to interview with the team. I flew myself out to DC so that I could interview in person and I interviewed with four members of the team I would be joining. There was a bit of confusion following the interview on hiring and which team I would join but in the end I ended up getting the original job I applied for.

    Intelligence Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Mine was short. It started with an email from one of the recruiters. He asked me to respond back quickly with a few short questions. Probably a few days later, I received a call in the middle of my lunch break from the person I had emailed. It wasn't such a bad experience, just would have been nice if they would've scheduled a time with you rather than call out of the blue for a phone interview. I was caught off guard but answered questions to the best of my ability. He then informed me that a Hiring Manager would follow up with me the next week for a second interview. Never happened. Emailed the recruiter twice to follow up after the week had passed, but never received a response.
