    Interview

    I came into the company through an outside program, so my experience was different than most. I also interviewed on campus after the superday. The questions were pretty standard. Nothing too crazy.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Washington, DC) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Began with standard phone interview and screening asking basic questions. This was held by a recruiter. Second interview was in person by a team of three potential colleagues. Questions at this point were regarding experience, situational, and cultural fit. Last interview was with a partner of VP and seemed more or less procedural as their mind was made up.

    Interview Questions

    Interview

    The interview was done with four associates from the prospective department of Booz Allen you were going to work with. It was done in a 2 hour period. Afterwards you contacted your recruiter. My process took three months from interview to hire. They had to find an opening for me.

    Senior Consultant Level II Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (McLean, VA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process was entirely too long. I interviewed previously for a contracts position. Several months later I was called about a completely different position. The interview process was deceitful in regards to expected day to day responsibilities and work environment. The interview consisted of several different groups of people asking basically the same questions. Standard behavioral and technical contracts questions were asked. However, in hind-sight the interviews seemed rushed, like they were too busy and needing to get back to their proposals. I should have noticed then that this was not a good sign. The schedule was scattered as I had finished and been escorted out of the building, only to be called 10minutes later on my way home to turn around and come back to speak to yet another level of management.

    Interview Questions

    • They did not ask many technical questions as they were too busy. They just wanted to make sure I was competent and able to explain my previous work experience.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation as they offered the exact amount I had requested.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview

    I applied online and was also referred by an employee. Got a call from HR and later I was interviewed on the phone by my soon-to-be Senior Associate, and then another Senior Associate. For the in-person interview, I was interviewed by 5 different people...mostly teammates and a Principal. I was also interviewed on the client side by the prime contractors. Questions were a mix of behavioral and technical.

    Interview Questions

    • How would you handle conflict within your team? How would you convince the client to adopt a certain approach to implementation?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Made a counteroffer and it was met in the middle

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in December 2013.

    Interview

    I was reached out to by an external recruiter based in Atlanta to come to a three hour interview session at the McLean office. Around 50 other candidates came and we each had our own table where panels of associates came and spoke with us individually. The discussion was mostly the same with each panel and was about prior experience and how you would be a fit and the value you would provide.

    I thought I was applying for a specific position, but each panel member evaluated me based on their need.

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

    Interview

    Depends on the team - most try to do "speed dating"… you'll start with a phone interview first with someone from "sourcing". Some teams try to do a case study style interview

    Interview Questions

    • Technical questions - that as a management consultant you may not have an understanding. Don't say in your resume you're an "expert" in something unless you're ready to back it up   Answer Question
