    Communications Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.

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

    Application

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

    Interview

    Interview was structured like speed dating. You enter a room and sit at a table and then the interviewers come and talk to you each for 30 minutes. Your resume is passed around before the interview, and anyone interested can choose to interview you so you can have anywhere from 1-5 during the event. At the end, you rate your top choices on a piece of paper and submit it.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself. When was a time that you had to deal with a difficult client? Where do you see yourself in five years? Tell me about a project that you worked on, the process behind it and how you measured success.   Answer Question

    Communications Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Arlington, VA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted by a recruiter about a month later. The phone screen was pretty quick, all the questions were basically things she could have gotten from my online application. A week later I was scheduled for an in-person at the Crystal City office. There were about 5 other candidates interviewing for the same position when I got there. Interview was with 3 separate people from the team. Most of the questions focused on why I wanted to work for Booz Allen and some behavioral questions. Interviewers were not very relaxed and it was not really a great experience. I wasn't interested in working for them anymore and accepted another offer.

    Costomer Advocate/Strategic Communications Interview

    Anonymous Employee in O Fallon, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (O Fallon, IL).

    Interview

    A friend already in the company referred me for this position after I retired from the AF. I interviewed with the manager and two senior leaders, but they were more like discussions. None of the interviews lasted more than 30 minutes. They focused some on my background, but more on the job ahead. I don't recall any challenging questions, but it was over 6 years ago.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Very short. They knew my military salary/benefits and generously offered comparable salary. I didn't submit a counter offer.
