    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Atlanta, GA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me to setup a brief phone call. They said that my background & skills fit the position well, and said that they would get back to me on any next steps. After I initiated two brief & polite follow ups, I did not receive any response, and the position is still open online with my application status "under review" one month later. This is the first time I have done a phone screening by any company's recruiter that did not result in any type of response.

    Junior Sharepoint Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Atlanta, GA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter for an initial phone screen. The process took about two weeks. What really disappointed me about the whole process was the fact that I had to reach out to the recruiter to get a status update, only to be told that I wasn't moving forward. I can't help but wonder if I would have ever heard anything had I not initiated the inquiry.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked about my previous experience with SharePoint and why I want to pursue a career in SharePoint. There was one question that really caught me off guard: "would you entertain a counter offer from your current employer?" I had never been asked that during an interview before.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Atlanta, GA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Overall great experience. The interview was more of a conversation as the interviewer was more interested in learning about my past experiences listed on my resume. The interviewer asked me to describe my past background and why I was interested in consulting. Then the interviewer asked if I had questions about this role and Booz Allen Hamilton in general.

    Application

    I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Atlanta, GA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    It was very quick and efficient. Almost too much so. One phone screen followed by an HR session that described the process. Then 40 minutes on the phone with the hiring manager. Soon after, I was brought into the office for a couple of sessions with peers. Less than a week from 1st contact to offer. The security screen was a big pain however.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Atlanta, GA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by one of their recruiters who first read through the job description and asked me about my experience and attempted to do a brief evaluation of whether I fit. She wasn't technically oriented, so that was of somewhat limited value. She asked for my absolute minimum salary, and read a disclaimer that it would not be used in any capacity other than to ensure that I wasn't automatically a bad fit. I haven't had an offer yet, so I don't know if they are being truthful about that.

    A couple weeks later the recruiter notified me that the team wanted to interview me. I was placed in an office and four sets of people sequentially interviewed me, with different roles on the team. Most of the questions were fairly standard interview questions, describing experiences, talking about programming, etc. Only one "behavioral" question was given, and that one by the senior consultant.

    I am awaiting a final decision, but funding for the position hasn't been secured yet. But they have been open about communicating on this.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Atlanta, GA) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online and through a university job website in November 2013. I received a phone call at 7:30pm a month and a half later asking me a few questions and inviting me to come in to the Atlanta office for an interview. I had three 30 minute interviews (no case studies, classic behavioral questions). It has been three months and I haven't heard back, I sent the recruiter a follow up email about 2 weeks ago and haven't heard anything. At this point I've pretty much ruled it out.

    Interview Questions

    • One of the interviewers interrupted me several times and asked if I thought I knew everything since I was a college student.   Answer Question

    Intern Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Atlanta, GA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    An awful experience all around. I interviewed for an internship position in the Strategic Innovation Group. The interview consisted of giving a 10 minute PowerPoint presentation that I had prepared in advance about a project I had worked on, and I was surprised about how quickly I was contacted by my recruiter stating that I would receive an offer. The interviewer itself was easy and the panel of interviewers were nice.

    The recruiter provided me details such as salary ($22/hour) and said they would get back to me shortly with my offer letter and details about whether I would be based in Atlanta or DC. Then, I began waiting for the offer letter - my initial interview/verbal offer was in October and I was due to start in May, so I thought there was plenty of time. I followed up with the recruiter every few weeks, asking when my offer letter would be available - each time, it was very difficult to get in contact: she did not answer my emails and it took several attempts at calling to get through each time. Nevertheless, each time, she reassured me that the offer letter would be forthcoming shortly, and not to worry because I did definitely have an internship position, so I did not need to worry about searching for something else.

    Then, in February, after going back and forth with her for these 4 months, she finally informed me that they had over-hired and I would not be able to receive a position with the SIG. Keep in mind that she informed me of this after the campus recruiting deadline for other firms, and after reassuring me for several months that I had nothing to be concerned about. She said she would talk to others within the company to see if she could find me an alternative position, as if she was doing me some kind of favor.

    I then had to re-interview with the Healthcare IT group (very different from the strategic nature of what I originally applied for). I went through two phone interviews, and then was contacted with my offer. Though it wasn't my main area of interest and far different from the strategic nature of the position I thought I was being hired into, I thought it would be ok, until I found out that the salary would be $16/hour - and the new recruiter refused to negotiate salary whatsoever, even considering that this was far lower than the original $22. This was a position that would have involved .NET development - I knew that $16 was an inappropriate salary for a position that would involve programming and technical skills, but it was very late in the game at this point to find something new for Summer.

    Luckily, I was somehow able to secure another position at a different company on such short notice, offering nearly double Booz Allen's salary, and went with that instead. Interestingly, she suddenly wanted to negotiate salary when I called back to reject her offer, but at that point, I no longer had any interest in ever working with or interacting with this company again. She said to definitely consider Booz Allen as I look for future career opportunities, but I will be sure to stay as far away as possible and have learned my lesson not to tie my career to any company - no matter how well-respected I may perceive that company to be.

    Reasons for Declining

    My experience with the interview process was so negative that I no longer had any interest in working at or interacting with this company ever again. The projected salary was also not appropriate given the work that would be expected of me and my previous work experience, and the recruiter was unwilling to negotiate or hear any of it until it was too late and I had already chosen somewhere else that gave a better offer.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Atlanta, GA).

    Interview

    Hiring and Interview process varies from location and from manager. Main purpose of interview is to find out if you are a "good fit" for the company. In my opinion, year of experience and performance is not taken into account.

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was limited. HR or recruited told me that i will be promoted in a year to the next level given my experience. This never happened.
