    Consultant/Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Washington, DC) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I reached out to a BAH recruiter and we discussed my interests and where I might fit within BAH. He put me in touch with a senior associate who walked me through his team and the type of projects they regularly manage. He then put me in touch with two others who answered my remaining questions. It was a great process and they were super accommodating every step of the way.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied via Booz-Allen's careers website. Booz-Allen first contacted me about interviewing with them by phone. Because it was a Friday before I was to leave on vacation, we had a couple of subsequent phone conversations while I was on vacation. Face-to-face interview was a few days after I returned. They interviewed a few other candidates for the job after that.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Atlanta, GA) in May 2010.

    Interview

    They had my resume and expressed interest but then it took several weeks for them to set up an interview. I had to inquire several times before they finally set something up, and then I interviewed with two of the senior associates. They didn't seem to have much time for the interview and it was very short. I was hired but not sure it had anything to do with how I performed at my interview.

    • If I dropped you at the client site tomorrow, what would you do?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate a small sign on bonus but no change in the salary.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (McLean, VA) in September 2011.

    Interview

    Have had three interviews now with two different teams so far. Both teams conducted on site interviews combining one on one and group interviews. No real surprises and plenty of candid give and take about the firm's culture, business and prospects. Very collegial, but they also were pretty artful about inserting "real" interview questions into the discussion.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (McLean, VA) in March 2009.

    Interview

    Recruiter setup date (which is apparently "interview day"). Feels a bit impersonal. SOmeone from HR gives the overview and benefits review. 3 reviewers interview you one by one. Each interviewer is designated to examine a certain aspect of your abilities. I can't recall the three viewpoints, but the recruiter tells you upfront. I came away feeling like I'd read a brochure.

    Interview

    Hiring process was very smooth. 4 different manager had interviewed and they were impressed by my skills and H.R called me and give verbal offer and mentioned that they want me to bring on board. Their salary is decent but less compared to industry standard. They were not ready to fudge.

    • What was toughest challange at the project?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They don't fudge with the salary offer. You have to wait for review after 6 months to get any hike.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Washington, DC) in June 2008.

    Interview

    An external recruiter randomly called me. I didn't even know Booz Allen existed. At the time I was at Dept. of Homeland Security and was misserable. I went in to interview and there were two guys and they were very sharp. They asked me a couple subject matter questions that were easy. About a week later, they gave me an offer with more than I asked for.

    Negotiation

    Make sure to ask for a good solid number. In my case I should have asked for more.
