    Project Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Herndon, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Herndon, VA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I've applied to Booz Allen many times over the past year, and randomly got an invitation to interview for this position, which I hadn't applied for. I agreed, had a phone interview, and the next day was offered an in-person interview, which I accepted. After a 2 hours drive I met with my interviewer who informed me that the second interviewer had already left for the day, so I would just be working with him. His attitude was tired and despondent, and he acted like he really did not want to be there. It was basically on me to conduct my own interview with this person. After the interview was over he told me I would hear about the job within the week, and then added that he and the other person had done multiple interviews for the position that day, some of which were internal candidates. I found this to be extremely unprofessional, and was basically his way of saying I wasn't going to get the job. The week came and went, and I was never notified about getting, or not getting, the position.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Herndon, VA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Great interview. It was almost like speed dating where I sat for 30 minute interviews with a few different people in different teams or sections that had seen my resume and wanted to talk to me. Got to learn a lot from different sections of the company about the kinds of projects they were working on. Before the actual interview, there was the usual HR rundown on the company and then a mini networking session where you got to talk to people in case they weren't part of the list of people that were able to secure an interview with you.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Herndon, VA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I had an employee referral put in for me in the middle of May. A week later I was contacted by the recruiting department for an initial phone screening. After completing an on-line application I was scheduled to meet with 4 people from the team (2 from management, 2 lower level staff). The interviews went great and at the end of June I had my second interview with 2 other team members. I followed up with recruiting a few days after and was given very good feedback and was told that there were no other candidates being considered before me but we had to wait for final word from the team. I never heard back. I continued to follow up throughout the summer and was continuously told that the team was busy and would be making a decision soon. At the end of August, in response to me following up I was told the position had been filled. I think that if I had never followed up I would never have heard back.

    Interview Questions

    • All the interviews basically went over my resume and the team and position. I was asked about my strengths and weaknesses.   Answer Question
