    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in March 2008.

    Interview

    The interview process spanned two and half days of interviewing a large number of senior managers. The hire/no-hire decision was a voting process. The interview process is highly dependent on the level you are being considered for. At lower levels, the process is typically simple. A couple of hours with the project manager who is interviewing you will suffice. Once you get to Senior Associate, there is typically a Principal and the program/project manger involved. Interviewing for Principal is when things get exponentially more complex. There, multiple partners get involved. They are looking at experience, your track record of success, your understanding of the market and the clients you will serve, etc. What they are looking for is your ability to bring new business to the firm.

    Interview Questions

    • There is no single question that stands out. It is based on the level you are interviewing for. But, at lower levels, they want to understand if you have the knowledge needed to meet the client needs. At higher levels, they want to evaluate your ability to understand the client, but also your ability to manage people, and grow new business.   1 Answer
    • They want to know if you have experience of background with the clients of interest. Further, they want to know at what level you have worked with these clients.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Based on the collective impression of the interviewers of your value to the firm, they will provide an offer based on the local market salary of similar talent and experience. You have room to negotiate, but they have done their homework well. They know, within a few percentage points, what your value to the firm is worth. Booz Allen carries a prominent name, and they typically get to pick and choose from the best of the labor market. They pay well, they know it, so don't expect to try to exert a lot of leverage with them. At the same time, they won't offend you with a weak offer
