    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Arlington, VA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Short phone interview with technical HR recruiter who said they can't hire data scientists fast enough. Then onsite with three 30-minute interviews. The interviews were all very casual and easygoing with not many technical questions. I received an offer within the week. But after two months, I still didn't have a start date and they finally said there was no position available. There wasn't a lot of transparency around the position I had been offered or why it disappeared.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Arlington, VA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was simple and designed to elicit conversation. I was encouraged to share stories/solutions, but was never put on the spot. I would have to say the program leads knew what they were looking for, and the type of personality they wanted to add to the team.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Arlington, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Arlington, VA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a phone call from a recruiter within a few days. We had a brief (20 minute) conversation about my experience. I received an email from an "interview coordinator" the next day who scheduled the interview. When I showed up to the interview, there were two other individuals applying for the same position. That was a little awkward. We were all brought into one conference room and told that Booz hires in anticipation of future project needs, so there was not necessarily one position available, but that different people may have different skills sets needed on the overall team. Each interviewee was sent to a different office and three different individuals rotated between the rooms to conduct 30 minute interviews. The interviews were pretty standard - no tricky questions. Mostly about past experience, why I was interested in working with Booz, what my dream job would be (how I would actually spend my day), lots of behavioral questions and those sorts of things. I received a phone call the next week with an informal offer, then a written offer after negotiations.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    It was fine. Because you are working wiht a recruiter, it makes the situation a bit easier. I was asked salary requirements in phone screening, and they agreed that my requirements were within the range for the position. I was told Booz does not typically negotiate salary, but I was able to make a small increase in base salary.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Arlington, VA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted by a recruiter about a month later. The phone screen was pretty quick, all the questions were basically things she could have gotten from my online application. A week later I was scheduled for an in-person at the Crystal City office. There were about 5 other candidates interviewing for the same position when I got there. Interview was with 3 separate people from the team. Most of the questions focused on why I wanted to work for Booz Allen and some behavioral questions. Interviewers were not very relaxed and it was not really a great experience. I wasn't interested in working for them anymore and accepted another offer.

    Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Arlington, VA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I forwarded my resume and brief description through an active BAH employee, who referred me to the company and then applied in the BAH internal system. This is the standard at BAH, it is difficult to apply on your own unless you time a hiring cycle well. A few weeks later I was invited for an interview at the VA Headquarters. I arrived to find myself among about 15 others. Interview was fairly straightforward meeting a few mid level managers and one senior manager. Questions were background related and about the firm. About three weeks later I was made an offer. Then I had to go through the government interview process to get a security clearance which took several months.
