Senior Consultant Interview

Senior Consultant
San Antonio, TX

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in January 2010.

Interview Details – The interview process varies. I was interviewed via telephone from the HR department and in person in front of a panel of three. I was offered a position the same day of the in person interview. The position I applied for was for environmental cost estimating. I was asked about procedures in conducting O&M in the field, how much it would cost to conduct O&M and unexpected maintenance.

I have participated in the interview process and movement was much slower. Candidates sat through at least three interviews. Once interviews were conducted, notes were compared and a final decision was eventually made. It took a month at times to make an offer to candidates. Booz Allen does negotiate based on experience. If you are fresh out of college, pay seems to be more dependant upon what the degree is in. Engineers obviously start at a higher rate.

Interview Question – Interview questions are not difficult. They are geared towards the position description. Technical questions may be asked depending on the position and the individual interviewing.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Simple, they asked what my salary requirements were and they paid me what I wanted. It is important to research salaries. I have seen engineers take positions ranging from 30K-50K at entry level.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in June 2010.

Interview Details – I passed my resume around to friends of mine working for various contractors. Eventually, a Booz Allen Hamilton recruiter emailed me asking for a time to meet. I suggested a date and location, however, she told me the first "conversation" would be a phone conversation and formal interviews would follow. The phone interview was basically gather background information on me and asked what I was looking for in a career with BAH.

Interview Question – What areas of BAH would you be interested in?   Answer Question

Interview Details – Interviewed by three BAH associates and the company's recruiter. My skills and experience matched with more than one of the open positions within the company. It was not a panel; morever it was an 1:1 interview with each one of them. Questions were base on resume and some basic skills knowledge. So far it looks like a great company to work for.
