Interview Details – - Initial contact made by a company recruiter who then hands it off to a site/ job specific recruiter.
- Interviews are round robin style with many other candidates. You get a desk with a stack of your resumes while Sr. Associates and Principals come around and talk to you about positions they have open and are looking to fill.
- Can be a bit of an information vacuum after the interview so it is incumbent on you to follow up.

Interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton
Interview Details – I came into the company through an outside program, so my experience was different than most. I also interviewed on campus after the superday. The questions were pretty standard. Nothing too crazy.

I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in November 2012.
Interview Details – The interview process went very smoothly. I initially had a phone screen and then was scheduled for an interview with several other applicants. You aren't interviewed together, but you do get an opportunity to meet other applicants before your interviews. Take time to get to know them if you can - they may be your future colleagues. Each applicant was assigned a room and interviewers cycled in and out. Most of the interview questions I received were behavioral, but I also received one case question. Overall, the interviews were more of a conversation about my experience and how I could add value to the firm.
Interview Question – How would you determine how many trees are in Central Park? Answer Question
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.

Interview Details – I was reached out to by an external recruiter based in Atlanta to come to a three hour interview session at the McLean office. Around 50 other candidates came and we each had our own table where panels of associates came and spoke with us individually.
