    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    Had two initial phone interviews then was contacted by a recruiter for an in person interview at headquarters. This was very much like speed dating. Met with 3 different hiring managers in a large room with other applicants. Each interview was about 30 minutes long with behavioral/past work experience questions. The next week I received a verbal offer that Wednesday and a formal, written offer that Friday.

    Program Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (San Diego, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Overall a good interview - all the people had my resume and cover letter printed out with topics they wanted to talk about and questions they had. They were surprised that I didn't have a referral from someone in the company because I didn't know anyone. I hope that doesn't hurt my chances of getting the job... The front desk personnel was a little...intense. Not sure if they were having a bad day or not, but I felt like I didn't belong there. Very professional overall, and the interview felt more like a conversation rather than an interview. OF NOTE: I do not know yet whether I got hired, but I am thinking positive.

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in McLean, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (McLean, VA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    An employee referred me to a recruiter who, after a phone screen, got me into a hiring event. The hiring event was 'speed-dating' style. I had 4 30-minute interviews with associates/managers from different teams. They were mainly interested in my background; the interviews were conversational and felt more like networking. There was no job description, they just want to know if you're a good fit and if you're someone they would like to work with. They also want to determine whether your interests align with their teams.
