    Capital Planning Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in McLean, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    HR presented to a group of interviewees (interviewing for specific, as well as general hiring), then two separate subject matter expert one-on-one interviews. I was told in my second one-on-one that the position I had applied for had already been filled. The second interviewer (the project lead) had clearly not looked at my resume before hand. It was a disappointing experience.

    The interview was fairly informal. They asked about my prior experience and design inspirations. The biggest cons about the whole process was the speed of the process. It took about 2 months to get through one round of interviewing...

    Management Consulting Senior Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I spoke with a recruiter in late October about the senior consultant position and I was setup to interview a week later but somethings fell through. The recruiter reached back out to me late November and we got the ball rolling again and scheduled another interview. It was a general management consultant interview with about 15 other candidates to be interviewed. We were separated into different rooms where I met with 2 different managers working different projects. We discussed my overall skills and background. It was an easy going conversation with both managers, I knew my resume very well and could speak to everything they asked me about. I was even asked about certain Excel skills and I was honest in telling them that I was no expert in Excel but I can always research.

    I received positive feedback about my interview within 48 hours and I was offered the position the following week.
