    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Tyson's Corner, Fairfax, VA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied for Business Analyst position through a referral. The recruiting part took a long time, around 5 to 6 months before I was contacted for an interview. However, the interview was a great and pleasant experience. I interviewed with a senior manager and a consultant, each for 30 minutes in a small room, switching after the allotted time. The interview was informal and mostly speaking about my background. They were extremely friendly and made me feel comfortable. I felt the interview was to gauge my fit with the team and my passion about the role I was applying for.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Atlanta, GA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me to setup a brief phone call. They said that my background & skills fit the position well, and said that they would get back to me on any next steps. After I initiated two brief & polite follow ups, I did not receive any response, and the position is still open online with my application status "under review" one month later. This is the first time I have done a phone screening by any company's recruiter that did not result in any type of response.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Washington, DC) in March 2017.

    Interview

    This was a large interview event at a conference center. Hundreds of college students were invited. There was a general welcome speech, then we were split into two or three different groups. For about an hour one group had a networking session where interviewees could talk to current employees and learn about specific projects BAH works on. The following hour consisted of two one-on-one interviews with two different hiring managers. Both interviews were very laid back and comfortable. There weren't any trick questions at all.
     It was very conversational. There were snacks too. Lots of snacks.

    Positive Experience

    Interview

    The interview process is very thorough. The process went through several layers of team and management structure. Be mindful of your stamina if you have 3-4 interviews back-to-back. The last interview of the day is likely to be the actual hiring manager.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Washington, DC) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Initial interview held months ago. Lots of technical questions concerning the platform, and provided a description of the working environment. Heard nothing then, suddenly a hard press to recruit. I was offered a position, but the relocation package discussed verbally was not what was provided. This was the recruiter's fault.
