    Senior Consultant Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (McLean, VA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Really satisfied with this process. I was deployed at the time and they were very patient and understanding with the difficulties that posed. Three hour block/30 min each with who would be my boss and then 2 individuals above that person. Very nice people, asked good questions and answered mine very thoroughly. Couldn't have felt better about the process.

    Software Developer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Interview process was smooth and quick. Got call within 2 days letting me know they would like to make offer but didn't hear anything back after that phone call. I tried reaching back once a week to recruiter(s) but I was pushed back by saying "oh we are still waiting to hear back from hiring manager"(excuses). After 4 weeks of calling finally got final answer that they would not hire me since the team do not have enough budget to hire me. My question is why was I put on hold if they didn't had enough budget in first place??? These recruiters makes this company look BAD. What a WASTE OF TIME as I spent about 5-6 weeks just to hear I will not be hired.

    Junior Cost Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    As a recent grad from university, I applied through the online portal and was contacted by a recruiter (within a week). With the recruiter I did a screening interview (30 min), and then a couple of other very small 'interviews,' which were mostly used for clarifying information for the hiring team.

    I then was scheduled to do a Skype interview (about 1.25hrs), which ended up being a conference call instead. I interviewed with a few different managers of varying levels. Most questions were about my resume items and how I thought they would apply to management consulting. The interviewers also spent a good amount of time talking about the culture and goals of Booz Allen, which was nice. Finally, they asked a couple of situational questions before opening the floor to me to ask whatever questions I had.

    Overall, the process took about a month.

    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.
