    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (McLean, VA) in August 2012.

    Interview

    One interview, behavioral very chill. Just know as much as you can about the company. We don't say Booz Allen Hamilton, we say Booz Allen or you can say Booz. But Booz Allen is the best. We say the firm a lot when referring to the company. My interview process was different so It's best not to share it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (McLean, VA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    Worked through a recruiter to get a group interview with several different teams alongside about 25 other applicants. Questions were pretty standard about behavior and background. Thought the interviews went very well, but did not hear back with either an offer or a "no thanks" for 3 weeks.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (McLean, VA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process is fairly quick here. First a recruiter contacts you if they feel that your resume is a good fit for the position. It usually last a hour long. Depending on your recruiter, he or she may prepare you for the next step during the phone interview which is an on-site interview. The on-site interview occurs in the Mclean headquarters. It consited of three interviews with associates from the firm all from different capabilities. You speak to each for about thirty minutes about your background and why you want to work at BAH. It is very conversational and nothing difficult is asked. Within a week, the recruiter called me with an offer.

    Negotiation

    No negotiating. Try your hardest to negotiate because they will low ball you.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (McLean, VA) in November 2009.

    Interview

    On campus interview with an HR recruiter where mostly behavioral questions were asked. Also asked what department I would be best fit for. Then University Invitational at McLean headquarters. 3 one on one interviews with Associates & Senior Consultants about my previous work experience. 1 week wait to figure out I made it to "next step". Contacted by HR recruiter for my specific department. Called in for lunch interview with the team I would be working with. At lunch, asked about previous work and school coursework. Also asked to solve conceptual problems and explain concepts. Received call from HR next day stating that I got the job and asked for salary requirements.

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in June 2011.

    Interview

    It started out with a phone interview. They wanted to verify a few things on my resume and talk about my interests. They then proceeded to the 1:1/Group interviews. The trip was all expenses paid, which was pretty cool considering it was only my second real interview. The interview process took about three hours where I spoke with five different departments. I was a bit nervous when told I would be having four to five interviews in one sitting; however, everyone was approachable and knowledgeable. They simply ask you questions about your interests and experience. You are trained after being hired, so it seems to be kind of a personality interview combined with what you know.

    Negotiation

    Honestly I didn't have to negotiate anything. They offer relocation compensation for up to $3000, and the starting salary was beyond my expectations. Salary is based on the nature of work you will be doing, so you could be making 55-60K in one office or above 70K in another office (based on my experience for the Consultant 1 position). They also offer three different packages for health benefits. They don't match the 401K, so one may want to consider an IRA.
