    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview Details

    Quite efficient process, initially screened by someone in HR, then round-robin type interviews with multiple candidates, but individual 30min well-organized, relatively simple interviews (resume walkthrough, why interested in Booz Allen etc). It was unclear during process what position exactly I was being hired for, and what team/who was interviewing and who I'd be working with, presumably because more than one position and team were hiring.

    Interview Questions
    • These depended on the individual interviewing, it didn't seem as though there was a defined set of interview questions, which made it more comfortable. No business case/case study.   Answer Question

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview Details

    Was referred-in by current employee with the company, who also gave me the hiring manager's name. I sent my cover letter-resume to the hiring manager directly. A couple weeks later, I was contacted by an external recruiter who did a very cursory 15 minute phone interview. A couple weeks later I was contacted by a junior team member and we did two case exercises over the phone. I was then invited to final round where I interviewed with 6 team members, each of varying levels of seniority and each conducting a case exercise.

    In general the case exercises were not particularly difficult and there were no typical brain-teaser questions.

    I heard back over two weeks later that I hadn't been offered the position.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was a smooth one. My initial phone screen was with the recruiter. She conformed my face-to-face at the end. The following week I went in for my interview. The interview was in a conference room and resembled speed dating. I remained seated and the managers moved from table to table. I interviewed with two managers.

    Associate Interview

    Application Details

    interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was very quick and efficient. Almost too much so. One phone screen followed by an HR session that described the process. Then 40 minutes on the phone with the hiring manager. Soon after, I was brought into the office for a couple of sessions with peers. Less than a week from 1st contact to offer. The security screen was a big pain however.

    Application Details

    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.
        Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I haven't actually accepted the offer yet because I am still interviewing with other companies, but there is a good chance I will take it.
