    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (San Diego, CA) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Not as formal as I thought it would be. It was a great conversation about my experience and skills. It was more about personality fit and the ability to connect with people. My interview was on a Friday and I got a call with an offer on the next Monday. It was very quick!

    I applied online. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview

    I submitted my application online and was eventually contacted by a recruiter. She called once to do a screening and a second time to ask me what my experience was like and if I liked some details about the job. She was kind of pushy about asking about my salary requirements but ... unfortunately all of these consultant firms are. Things were a bit crazy, understandably so because of COVID-19. So after 2 weeks of waiting I was handed off to another recruiter who re-asked some screening questions and again about my salary requirements. Then I waited another month and was handed off to a 3rd recruiter a week later I had my first real interview. This handing off process was the worst part of it but after that the interviews were conducted professionally.

    The first interview was conversational and about programming and Python and what I’ve done in various languages. Then there were some questions about my background. They wanted a few technical questions but because I had experience doing those things it was framed more from a “How did you solve this problem?” point of view and “Are you comfortable doing X?” Etc... So as long as you didn’t lie on your resume about being qualified you should be confident and able to answer these no problem. They basically just want to know that you actually have the experience that the screening process established.

    The next interview was from a senior member of the client’s team and was technical at first about databases type questions and then it shifted to individual working style, team based working style, and leadership based stuff like “How would you handle —blank— problem with a co-worker?” and “Give me how you approach a typical work day where you have to do —blank— task.?” as well as questions about what makes a good project.

    After about almost 2 more weeks I got an offer over the phone where I was asked to accept or reject and was then followed up with an official letter with the same information.

    I don’t think it’s very professional to ask for a yes/no directly on the phone like that but I could tell based on current events that this was happening in a rushed manor on their end and I actually really wanted this job so I could understand their POV here.

    Needless to say I’ve worked with the firm’s professionals in the past and I know they run a tight ship so I was excited to accept an offer despite the ups and downs and waiting.

    Communications Specialist, Junior Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I applied for the job at 10 am and received a rejection email four hours later. It was very odd but I chalk it up to the company looking for specifications that I just don’t have. I do wonder how competitive an applicant must be when the posting only asks for you to have 1 year of work experience, including internships. Even with a MA degree, FT work and internships under my belt, it seems like they want candidates who have some experience in government or politics. I also wasn’t offered any feedback on why my application was rejected so swiftly, that quick turn around was rather unusual.
