    Technologist - Business Systems Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Rockville, MD) in July 2014.

    Interview

    The interview was basically a cattle call. There were a number of tables set up in 2 rooms. We were asked to sit at a table and the interviewers came and asked each of us questions. My first interviewer seemed a bit distracted but after engaging her in conversation a little more she seemed to respond well. The second interviewer was very nice and was interested in me as a candidate which was nice. We were told at the end of the interview that we would hear from our recruiters by the middle of the following week. I didn't hear from them so I sent a follow up. About a 2 weeks after the interview I received a phone offer, and it took another week or two to have the paper offer drafted and sent to me. I accepted the offer, although the salary was a bit lower than I was hoping for.

    Interview Questions

    • When I interviewed I didn't know that this was for the position of a technologist (business systems analyst), so the most difficult questions were about my technology/coding history which I did tell them I have very minimal knowledge but am willing to learn. Stressing that you are willing to shape yourself to the company is very important.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I told them what I would like and they came back with a counter offer. Although lower than I hoped, this is a Junior position so I didn't have high hopes for the pay. It was higher than what I was expecting at first but not as high as I hoped.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Rockville, MD).

    Interview

    Submitted application and resume online for one position posted on BAH 's website, then applied for eight more positions using saved information. I was contacted within 2 days by one of their lead recruiters and answered screening questions. At the end of the screening, the recruiter arranged an appointment with me to talk with a Lead Associate who is the Program Manager of a large multi-site healthcare reform contract. My follow-up phone interview with the Lead Associate lasted over 2 hours, but it did not seem that long. The style of questioning was conversational and was scenario focused oriented (i.e. Describe a time..., How have you..., etc...). Less than a week later, I was called by a different recruiter to schedule an in-person and phone interview with 2 additional Lead Associates at one of BAH 's corporate sites. Both interviews lasted about 30 minutes and were similar to my previous interview. During these interviews, I learned that I typically would only have been interviewed in-person by a Sr. Associate, but he was on leave and had arranged for the two 30 minute interviews as his proxy. This impressed me greatly because it directly demonstrated the high level of trust and confidence that the team members have for each other.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Rockville, MD) in July 2012.

    Interview

    Just interviewed yesterday, thought it was pretty painless process, efficient, etc...no complaints. Have not heard anything regarding an offer yet! Interview: received a phone call from a recruiter and had a short conversation regarding basic skills and why it would be a good fit for you. Then had an interview about a week later and it was exactly what people have mentioned. You are sitting at your own table in a room where there are six tables total. The interviewers come in and sit at your table, you chat, and then after 30 min the next interviewer comes in. There are 3 of those. The interviews were very casual, and they ended up actually being pretty fun. There were not any standard questions, just chatting about my experience. It was very painless.

    Interview Questions

    • There wasn't really any tough questions, its more of just a chat about what you bring to the table. They asked about mentoring .   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Rockville, MD) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Shortly after my friend had put me in as an employee referral I received an email from HR to set up a phone screening/interview. I answered basic resume questions about my experience. Less than a week later I was asked to fly down to Maryland for an onsite interview. I interviewed with four consultants and also spoke again with HR about logistics, next steps, etc. I had another offer on the table at the time, and HR knew that I needed to give an answer to the other company within a few days. Two days after my interview I received a call with an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • One interviewer didn't ask me anything about my resume and just asked what questions I had for her.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I didn't try to negotiate since they were offering me far more than I currently make. I had another offer on the table at the time, and Booz offered substantially more than my other offer as well.
