    Summer Games Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview

    Took a while. The recruiter was not very helpful. Applied through employee referral.
    The interview was mainly about skills I developed. There were no technical questions. I think it important to understand your resume inside and out as there are a lot of questions on the what classes you have taken and what you have done in past internships.

    Interview Questions

    • What did you learn from past internship that you think you can apply to this internship?   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Washington, DC).

    The process was "speed interview", where you interview with multiple teams. Multiple 30 minute interview sessions. Each session had at most 2 interviews from different teams. I interviewed with 4 teams, but it can range.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Exhausting! Four separate interviews in two hours. Had to travel on public transportation a long distance. Offered water/coffee. Contacts cordial. No immediate feedback. I had the sense they saw me as way overqualified but were curious why I would take the job.

    Lead Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty frustrating despite being referred by two different BAH employees. The first (of three) recruiter didn't know anything about the position except for what was written on the posting. After a phone interview and follow up to answer a question regarding my skillset, he set up an in person interview with the hiring manager. Of course, this was after accidentally calling me instead of another candidate to tell me I wouldn't be moving forward (luckily he called back within five mins).

    At the in person interview the recruiter was fine, but the manager conducting the interview showed up 10 minutes late, wasn't even remotely familiar with my resume, and interrupted the interview to take a 3-5 minute call (without leaving the room).

    Despite being an 85% or so match to the position she told me outright that I wasn't qualified for the role bc I didn't have as much depth in a certain area (which was extremely clear from a cursory review of my resume).

    This was a complete waste of my time and could have been avoided with either a more specific job posting or having the manager actually read through my resume a single time before meeting (and dismissing) me.

    Intelligence Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Alexandria, VA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Was referred by another prospective employee, initially interviewed by one recruiter for one position at one site, was referred to another recruiter for another site as that requirement was more immediate. Interviewed w/ that recruiter, then w/ the team, heard nothing for over two weeks despite calling and emailing. Finally got a response indicating I would not be given an offer but to expect to hear from them in the coming days regarding the initial interview for a different account. I still have yet to hear back. Very disappointed with the overall process.

    UX Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Herndon, VA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Herndon, VA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    Referred by Booz employee. Recruiter reached out and set up interview. Went in for interview which was not bad, just a walk through of portfolio and conversation. Great staff. Was offered position but not the salary I wanted so they offered a different role that was UX and UI hybrid. I agreed and spoke to two project managers for two projects, both of whom said they would be saying yes to me. Was asked to do a follow up phone conversation with another team but it never got set up because the recruiter stopped responding. When my referral reached out, the recruiter said they were still bringing me on board. I never heard back and it has been over two months now.

    Another recruiter reached out to me about a month later for another UX Designer role but never followed up after letting me know they were discussing which team to put me on.

    Recently, a THIRD recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn. I have not responded because there is no communication between the recruiters and it doesn't go anywhere. The process caused me to take off work and miss some meetings only to be ignored by the recruiters.
