I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in August 2010.
Interview Details – Recruiter was a contracted employee and based on his aggressiveness, he was paid on commission. I was contacted the next day after applying online and had an interview set up within a couple days. Was not interested in the first team I interviewed with, and recruiter was slow to set up second interview with another team. Second interview was much more to my interest and I expressed a willingness to entertain the opportunity. Hiring manager made an offer before I could get out to my car after the interview.
Interview Question – Most of the questions were based on determining if I would be interested in the work. Not many skill-based questions. Some behavioral questions like "Describe a time where you had a dispute with a coworker and how you resolved it." Pretty softball interview. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I wasn't initially interested in the position, so I gave them the most ridiculous salary requirement I could think of without being offensive. They accepted it and gave me an offer before I got to my car after leaving the interview.
Interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton
Interview Details – After a fairly standard pre-screen process I was invited to an 'interview event' where four Senior Associates rotated through asking questions.

After the initial screen, I was contacted by two associates who asked about my technical experience. I was invited for an on-site interview that consisted of a series of 2 vs 1 interviews with staff and management. At the end of the half-day, I was asked to give a seminar on my work followed by a Q&A from people in the group I was interviewing to join.

I applied through college or university and 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 Question – 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
Reason 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.

Interview Details – Suit required! I was hired based on an initial interview session in a Women's Diversity Event. There were multiple tables with multiple teams of hiring managers. I filled out a comprehensive questionnaire prior to the event (which was scrutinized by the hiring teams). When I arrived, the recruiter let me know which tables to stop at to interview with. I interviewed at four tables and when I left, the tables that interviewed me determined which position I was a best fit for. I was called back for a second interview with the actual site manager.
Interview Question – Honestly, it's been 5 years (October 2009) since I interviewed with BAH. I don't remember. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Four months later, I was sent an offer letter for the position. (By then, I had almost given up on them!) They were not very flexible with negotiations of time off or salary, but instead boasted about the benefits of being with their "firm". Recommendation: Negotiate for the highest LEVEL you can from the start. Get everything in writing (ex: If you complete your degree, we can move you to the next level). Don't sign on until you are satisfied with your offer.
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.
Interview Details – They do/did hiring interviews one day a week. You will be interviewed by around 3 or 4 managers, depending on your skill area. You will be sitting in a conference room and one at a time, each manager will come in to interview you. They may not be in from one skill area but looking at where you could fit within the organization and the needs they have.
Interview Question – There is no one difficult or unexpected question. Just be prepared to talk about your skills, and your goals, what you want to achieve and where you see yourself in 2 years. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – There are some companies that want to know that you value working for them. This is one of those companies. They will not offer the salary increase you are looking for in changing jobs. You may end up with an offer for less than your last job. If you are good at what you do, you will more than make up for accepting less. I took less and at the end of the year I was more than happy with where my salary was. They reward you for hard work and team spirit.
