    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (San Diego, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Met people at a career fair, called for an initial phone screening, then invited for an in-office interview. They didn't reimburse for any part of the trip. This was for a full-time position.

    Four 30 minute interviews in a row, three behavioral that were easy-going and relatively conversational, I felt they were all easy to talk to and relatively basic behavioral questions that were trying to gauge if you're a good fit for the firm. Last interview was a surprise technical interview that asked specific questions on database syntax and optimization. This was a surprise because pretty much none of these reviews said anything more than behavioral.

    I was called by the recruiter about a week later and told that there was nothing I could have done better during my interviews and that they felt I was a great firm fit, but they weren't sure they would still have the money to hire me by the time I graduated (even though they knew when I would be graduating since the first day I talked to them) and offered me to interview for an internship instead. Pass.

    Overall, everyone involved was very nice and personable, but I can't help but feel like I was jerked around for no reason and that there was never actually a chance of me getting the position regardless of my performance during the interview. Combine that with no reimbursement and very positive feedback and it was extremely frustrating to hear this excuse.

    Junior Sharepoint Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Atlanta, GA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter for an initial phone screen. The process took about two weeks. What really disappointed me about the whole process was the fact that I had to reach out to the recruiter to get a status update, only to be told that I wasn't moving forward. I can't help but wonder if I would have ever heard anything had I not initiated the inquiry.

    Interview Questions

There was one question that really caught me off guard: "would you entertain a counter offer from your current employer?" I had never been asked that during an interview before.   Answer Question

    Management Consultant Interview

    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 October 2016.

    Interview

    I initially recruited with Booz Allen by reaching out to alum from my school on LinkedIn. After speaking to several of them, one referred me for a position. It took about a month and a half for me to get called for an interview. It was in-person (McLean, Virginia), and it was speed-dating style with multiple college students. 2 interviews - half hour each. Fairly simple if you know what the firm does and how you can be a good fit. I received an offer 3 days later.

    Every point of contact has been incredibly helpful and engaging, from the interviewers themselves to the recruiters. Really great people.
