Senior Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee in McLean, VA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (McLean, VA) in November 2012.

Interview

The interview was behavioral and not very difficult. There are no case interview questions, mainly because the work is not really consulting but staff augmentation. I did a phone interview and three rounds of in person interviews before receiving an offer. The recruiter asked me ahead of time for my salary expectation but the offer was below the low end of my salary range. I negotiated for $5k more but that all they would budge. Know why you want to work for the company. Be able to clearly explain you past work experience using a problem solution results methodology.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Seattle, WA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    A phone call with HR screening for basic qualifications, followed up with a scheduled interview. Interviews were about as described. They set you in an office, and people stop by to talk with you. Everyone was really friendly, and most of the topics kept to "Tell me about a time..." type of conversations.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (McLean, VA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Referred by a co-worker, who was contacted by a recruiter. Had candid discussions with recruiter who gave me feedback on my answers and interests. Then I came in for an afternoon of three successive interviews, each about 20 minutes each (sort of like a speed dating). I received an offer thereafter, and negotiated some salary concessions from them.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Washington, DC) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Interviewed in college. Simple interview process. They don't believe in case studies, for the most part. All behavioral, to get a sense for your experience, and whether or not you would be a good fit for the company. Not a hard interview process at all for college hires. Have heard of some departments putting college hires through case study interviews and excel modeling tests.

    However, I will note, I went through a very backdoor process. That could have been why the interview was so easy.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tysons, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Tysons, VA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was definitely not the smoothest, though I do appreciate the help I've received from the recruiting team along the way. I started with a phone screening with a recruiter who then told me that they wanted to interview me the same week on site. The day before the interview the team cancelled my interview and then re-scheduled for the following Friday. While I understand that sometimes meetings and client obligations get in the way, recruiting and changing up interviewing schedules at the last minute is not a great first impression to make on a candidate. What was also frustrating is I did not receive the final details to the actual interview itself until two days before the interview. I was honestly beginning to think that BAH wanted to cancel and reschedule the interview again.

    After the Interview was over I had received an offer that was significantly less than the range I had given the recruiter prior to the on-site interviews. I feel like I wasted a lot of time and energy in prepping and interviewing for a position that I was misled to believe had a higher compensation.

    Interview Questions

    • A lot of behavioral questions such as why you're looking into opportunities with BAH and why you're leaving your current place of employment.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    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.

    About average in length but lots of questions. Once I got past the phone interview, was asked to do a face-to-face interview with a few people. Although the face-to-face interview was done in 1 day it was a very LONG day. Ended up meeting with 3-4 people .
