Senior Consultant
McLean, VA

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in September 2013.

Interview Details – I was contacted within a week of submitting an application (I also have a PhD, so the need to network may be less for higher credentials). From there, it took a VERY long time to get hired. Probably about 3 months.

Interview Question – I didn't think any were difficult, but I would make sure that you mention their core values in your interview.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I got 10k less than I wanted, but they gave me 10k cap to move. Wasn't exactly pleased with this stage.

Senior Consultant Interview

Senior Consultant
Belcamp, MD

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in November 2012.

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.

Interview Question – Typically a free flowing discussion not a stock template of questions that you are answering.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiate directly with recruiter, compensation is usually above average so they don't have much wiggle room.
