    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (San Diego, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Met people at a career fair, called for an initial phone screening, then invited for an in-office interview. They didn't reimburse for any part of the trip. This was for a full-time position.

    Four 30 minute interviews in a row, three behavioral that were easy-going and relatively conversational, I felt they were all easy to talk to and relatively basic behavioral questions that were trying to gauge if you're a good fit for the firm. Last interview was a surprise technical interview that asked specific questions on database syntax and optimization. This was a surprise because pretty much none of these reviews said anything more than behavioral.

    I was called by the recruiter about a week later and told that there was nothing I could have done better during my interviews and that they felt I was a great firm fit, but they weren't sure they would still have the money to hire me by the time I graduated (even though they knew when I would be graduating since the first day I talked to them) and offered me to interview for an internship instead. Pass.

    Overall, everyone involved was very nice and personable, but I can't help but feel like I was jerked around for no reason and that there was never actually a chance of me getting the position regardless of my performance during the interview. Combine that with no reimbursement and very positive feedback and it was extremely frustrating to hear this excuse.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Chicago, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    My interview experience with Booz Allen Hamilton could not have gone any better. The interview was informal and much more conversational than any consulting interview I've conducted. Every contact point with the company has been positive, from the recruiter, to the interviewer, to the management team that I've spoken with. I cannot overstate how friendly everyone was.

    Phone screen, phone interview, in-person interview. Tough behavioral questions were asked in phone interview. In-person interview was more of a conversation. In-person was with 4 people; 2 separate individual interviews, then 1:2 for the final interview. Overall it was a great experience.
