    Interview

    The interview process was different - I met with 4 to 5 different hiring managers over the course of a few hours in an open environment, almost like a career fair. It was intimidating at first, but after my first meet and greet it became a comfortable setting. The HR staff is very welcoming and positive.

    Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Baltimore, MD
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Baltimore, MD).

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter who set up a phone interview, then I had a phone interview with members of the team, and eventually was brought in for an interview in MD. I felt like the interview went well but did not receive an offer. I inquired and was told that the reason was that my starting salary requirements were too high. I only requested the same salary I was making at my current job, which is below average for data scientists in that area. I can only conclude that they don't pay well, which is contrary to what I have heard. HR also mixed up my email address with the candidate they chose to hire, and I received some of her HR emails, which is incredible unprofessional.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (King George, VA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    First hurdle in the process. The Lead for a BAH contract referred my resume to the BAH recruiters. The process took 3 weeks from initial contact to the first interview. It was a standard recruiter interview. It lasted 20 minutes. Recruiter was cordial, prompt and non confrontational. You can tell the recruiter hadn't absorbed my resume as some questions seemed obvious on the resume, i.e. Do you have an engineering degree from an accredited college?

    Project Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Herndon, VA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I've applied to Booz Allen many times over the past year, and randomly got an invitation to interview for this position, which I hadn't applied for. I agreed, had a phone interview, and the next day was offered an in-person interview, which I accepted. After a 2 hours drive I met with my interviewer who informed me that the second interviewer had already left for the day, so I would just be working with him. His attitude was tired and despondent, and he acted like he really did not want to be there. It was basically on me to conduct my own interview with this person. After the interview was over he told me I would hear about the job within the week, and then added that he and the other person had done multiple interviews for the position that day, some of which were internal candidates. I found this to be extremely unprofessional, and was basically his way of saying I wasn't going to get the job. The week came and went, and I was never notified about getting, or not getting, the position.
