The hiring process is long and tedious. You will likely interview with 3 or 4 people and there will be a background check. They might bring you in several times to interview with different levels of people.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was called back for a telephone screening asking about skills, availability, clearance, etc. The next day they called and asked me to come for an interview. I met with the HR representative first and then had a one-on-one interview and then a group of 3 interviewed me and then the HR representative wrapped it up by telling me that they would let me know something within a week.

    Interview Questions
    • My interviewer gave me about 20 sheets of paper and a pencil and told me to create a presentation on any topic of my choice in 10 minutes while he was out of the room; and to be ready to present it to him and a couple of others that he would bring when he came back.   View Answer

    Good people, the "recruiting" process seemed a bit disjointed. I know they want me, but nothing is in writing yet.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in August 2008.

    Interview Details

    Experience can vary greatly depending on the individual recruiter assigned to one. My recruiter would commit to calling at specific dates and times and then not call at all. No explanation and barely an apology, later. Interview questions are mostly behavioral and not prescribed for interviewers. The questions are usually designed to evaluate one's problem-solving abilities, project management skills, subject-matter expertise, leadership, etc. (no real surprises here for a consulting firm).

    Interview Questions
    • There were no unexpected questions. It was a very straight-forward type of interview process.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I negotiated directly with the recruiter who wasn't very flexible. She worked with the VP over the Center of Excellence (CoE) and moved my base salary up by about $2,500, but there was no sign-on bonus and no annual bonuses for Lead Associates.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    Mine was a little out of the norm. In essence I was recruited out of my former employer - didn't have to endure the barrage of group interviews and it was a pretty pleasent experience. I did update my resume to better reflect my accomplishments and how I believe it would fit with what they were looking for. I connected with friends who either work(ed) for the firm or worked in the Defense/Commercial consulting arena and asked them a ton of questions. I wasn't desperate to leave my old job, but I was eager to join a new team and create something new and I communicated that to the team. Never hurts to have the education (grad degree), certifications (PMP), and expereince align with your - and their- goals for that role.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    You really need to know your market, if you are not in D.C., don't expect the D.C. salaries. That being said I believe the firm wants to pay you well, just know what that means to you. In the end only you can decide if it is worth it - at least from a salary perspective. No one wants someone on their team who feels undervalued ($$$-wise) because they didn't negotiate well and/or didn't do their research.
