Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (McLean, VA) in April 2017.

Interview

I was contacted by BAH recruiter. They had found my resume online. I was told the company was looking for several Dynamics CRM developers as soon as possible. The job description matched my skill set very closely. I was told someone will contact me to setup an interview within couple of days. I received an email a few days later with instructions to dial in to conduct an interview without coordinating with me prior to the interview time. I received a phone call in the morning of my interview by another recruiter. When I told her that nobody had coordinated with me and I would not be available for the interview, she apologized and setup the interview for another day. I had 45 minutes talk with 3 people over the phone. One interviewer was a lady who said she was not technical but also said that it seemed like I had not done a lot of technical work on my last job because of my title at my last job (CRM Administrator). I told her that my title did not represent my work. The company that I was working for was a small company and the title was misleading and as a matter of fact I had done technical work for them. The other 2 interviewers sounded young but they said they were Architects. I had a hard time understanding them over the phone too. The questions were easy and I answered them all. They asked some behavioral questions too. Two days later I was contacted by the second recruiter who had scheduled my interview, congratulating me that I had got the job. She went over my benefits and pay. One thing that raised a red flag for me during our conversation was that she said why don't you think about this offer (it was on Friday morning) and get back to me on Monday to let me know if you are going to accept the offer. Why would a company want such a thing was a little weird to me. Usually, when a company offers you a job, they want you to accept it right away or as soon as possible. I told her that the offer was acceptable to me and I was excited to join the company.
She said great, then I will send you the formal offer by Monday COB likely. Another red flag. Why would a offer letter take that long and why likely when I knew that they were looking for candidates as soon as possible. My feeling was that they were looking for people and wanted to line up some candidates and then choose the cheapest one. That is why they wanted to push this back as long as they could so they can interview more people while keeping some in the queue while looking for more candidates. Anyways, I waited until Tuesday, contacted her and asked her how things were going and that I had not received the offer yet. She said she was waiting for the team and that she will get back to me by the end of week (why that long I said to myself). End of week came and no offer letter. She finally called me the next week (10 days after the initial verbal offer) and said unfortunately, team has decided not to move forward with the offer. I guess like I said they found people who asked for less. Very unprofessional. Never in my 15+ years of career had seen anything like this. Fortunately, I received another offer from another company.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview

    Round robin interview style from several managers. Usually one on one for 20 mins or so then the next manager walks in, about 2 hours or so. Engaging and thought provoking questions. Does the candidate "fit" the company style questions. Some interviewers were also from departments not necessarily applied for. Wanted to see if candidate may be better suited elsewhere. Better shot if someone refers the candidate.

    Interview Questions

    • Scenario based, and how I would respond with changing variables.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Omaha, NE) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Interview included both in-person and telephone contacts. Interviewers were late to arrive and despite wanting to talk about a role as a longer term employee for the company, constantly badgered me about what my salary expectations were. The interview was conducted late in the afternoon at their request, but I received the distinct impression that I was holding them up from something more important...like leaving for the day.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (McLean, VA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Great overall interview experience! I had an initial phone screen and then had to work through some challenges scheduling the face to face interview, the interviewers and my schedules had conflicting availability. Once the interview was scheduled, I had the opportunity to have one on one interviews with most of the team I would be directly working with. Meeting with so many members of the team was a great opportunity to not only learn about the work, but also the type of people I would be working with.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked several situational questions specific to the position, specifically looking to how I would react to specific problems   1 Answer

    Straight forward interview - just a conversation with two senior associates and an HR overview. It was for a PM position and they basically were having a big hiring day with lots of candidates present.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Chesapeake, VA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Process began with phone inquiries from two BAH recruiters. Took a couple of weeks of back and forth with calls and email before the actual interview. The interview itself was with four members of the team - one on one for 30 minutes each. Each provided an overview of the position and current status of work/contracts for each team. Questions were fairly standard - nothing too difficult or out of the ordinary. Reviewed my qualifications and certain items from my resume which were applicable to the job.

    Negotiation

    They offered about what I expected, but I negotiated for more of course. They ended up meeting me in the middle, which was ultimately what I was looking for.
