Interview

Very approachable and friendly. I met with a senior leader during an information session adn scheduled an interview for immediately afterwards. It didn't feel like there were any trick questions or gotchas, it was all just trying to get a sense of what I wanted in a career and if that matched up with the work this team was doing.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (McLean, VA).

    Interview

    Had two initial phone interviews then was contacted by a recruiter for an in person interview at headquarters. This was very much like speed dating. Met with 3 different hiring managers in a large room with other applicants. Each interview was about 30 minutes long with behavioral/past work experience questions. The next week I received a verbal offer that Wednesday and a formal, written offer that Friday.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Knoxville, TN) in September 2017.

    Interview

    1st round interview started with a typical 30-45 minute behavioral interview with typical interview questions and descriptions of the job and company. 2nd round interview was a bit more intense, at the facility, with 3x 30 minute interviews back to back to back with heads of different departments. Interview questions were not out of the ordinary or anything tricky, pretty standard.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Was called and emailed repeatedly by a recruiter that they were interested in my skills. Went in for an interview that was about 2 hours, speaking with several people (round-robin style interview) and seemed to go well. Then a few days later they said the position was filled by an "internal candidate" which seems shady, why would they bring all these people in and then just promote someone from within? However, they said they liked me and wanted me to interview for another position. So I went down there again a few weeks later, this time for 1.5 hours of interviews (one guy apparently was a no-show or he forgot) and after that.... silence.... didn't hear from the recruiter for 2 weeks. After emailing/calling her (won't mention her name) several times, finally she said they were still "making final decisions". After that I never heard anything. What an UNPROFESSIONAL company, I will not waste my time and will just ignore their emails from this point.

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Atlanta, GA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me to setup a brief phone call. They said that my background & skills fit the position well, and said that they would get back to me on any next steps. After I initiated two brief & polite follow ups, I did not receive any response, and the position is still open online with my application status "under review" one month later. This is the first time I have done a phone screening by any company's recruiter that did not result in any type of response.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Rockville, MD) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I applied on line and was contacted by the HR recruiter. We had a pleasant phone interview to review my resume and experience. I was told it was to be a panel interview but only one person showed up and apologized that others were too busy. Another called in for a separate interview. One of the interviewers said "I would be too expensive" for existing projects! I was a little taken aback, as I did not realize having superior expertise and experience was a negative for employment in a senior role.
