    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 an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to the position from an Employee Referral. I was contacted by a Booz Allen recruiter about 3 weeks after applying for the position.

    I was unable to have an in person interview due to logistics. It took place over the phone.

    After reading several interview responses here on glassdoor for Booz Allen, I got the impression that there was little technical questions. This was not my case. Two of the five interviews grilled me pretty thoroughly so be prepared to answer questions about technologies you have listed as skills.

    The interviewers were all very easy going and the process was quite pleasant.
