I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.
Interview Details – Horrible. Three people came in to talk to me and the second told me there wasn't anything for me. When the recruiter came in and I told her that, I thought she was going to pass out. Needles to say that was 7 years ago.
Interview Question – I do interviews now as a manager...be yourself. Remember, it's what you can add to Booz Allen.. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I should have been a better negotiator, but that was 7 years ago and I was young...always negotiate...worst they can say is no and you take their original offer.

Interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton
Interview Details – Participated through two seperate tracks: security market and junior military officer recruitment processes. Both interviews were of a similar format. The host of the event would provide a summary of the company, the purpose of the event, and an overview of how it would occur. Each candidate was tasked with meeting with three teams for a brief interview. They would ask the general questions about your resume and any experience related to their tasks. More specific questions were used to determine the depth of your knowledge. After that you could meet with other teams if desired. There would be a closing talk and it would conclude. The team leads then met to decide who to field offers to.
Interview Question – Ensure you can provide examples of how you did similar work in the past for the position you are interviewing for. Answer Question

Interview Details –
I applied online and had an employee referral. A recruiter called me in a week and eventually set up an interview date. I did not receive details about my interview until I called the recruiter twice and finally got the info just days before.
It was a 3+ hour process. I arrived early and we all had to wait 30 minutes for someone to come get us. There were about 7 or 8 other candidates but we were not all applying for the same position. We interviewed 3 people, round robin style, for 30min each.
The first interview went well, basic behavioral questions. The 3rd interview was more HR related. It was the 2nd one that got to me. They expected me to interview in Spanish. I had no idea that I was expected to do so until that moment. It was not in the job description nor was I told about it ahead of time. I did not even put that I am a Spanish speaker in my resume or application. I am part Hispanic/Latino but I am not fluent enough to feel comfortable being interviewed in Spanish. I was also required to translate 7 paragraphs from English to Spanish. It was dense with technical terms that many Spanish speakers would have trouble translating. It was like my education, skills, and experience had no merit and they were only concerned with my language skills and my ability to translate.
I felt that it was unfair that I was expected to do these things, especially because it wasn't in the job description nor was I notified that I would be interviewing/translating. I felt as though I was being racial profiled. I felt ambushed!
I was told I would hear back in 5 days but 2 weeks went by and I hadn't heard anything so after e-mailing them they told me they did not extend the offer.
Didn't expect to get it since I wasn't able to accurately translate all of the paragraphs but I just wished they had interviewed me normally. It was unjust if you ask me.
Probably my worst interview experience and a complete waste of time.

Interview Details –
I applied through an employee reference and was contacted about 2 months later. After a preliminary phone interview (the basics, not hard at all) I went in for an onsite interview. There were probably 12 other interviewees attending the same 'round robin' interview day. We all sat at different tables with another chair in front of us. After a speech about the company, our interviewers walked into the room and sat in front of us. After 30 minutes, the first interviewer left and another one took the seat. This happened 3 times.
Questions were basically just getting to know you and see if you'd fit on the team. "Tell me about a project where...." or "Tell me about yourself" Nothing difficult, felt like a conversation. I was given the opportunity to ask questions . After all 3 interviewers, they herded us out of the room and told us we'd be contacted in 5 business days.
Overall, a great experience. The only bad part was my interaction with the recruiter during the offer process. She was awful and absolutely no help. She was rude during the negotiation and setting up my start date. I'm excited about the job but she was a horrible first impression of the company.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time where you had to deal with a difficult customer/client? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Not a lot of room for negotiation. Basically no room. I had another interview with a different company so I asked for more time to consider their offer. They were really stingy about giving me more time.
