Senior Consultant Interview

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

Application

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.

    Easy Interview

    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.

    Average Interview

    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 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.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tysons Corner, VA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Tysons Corner, 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

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Rockville, MD) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Initially spoke to a recruiter regarding different positions that are available. Was told there is an interest at the Rockville team. No movement for 3 weeks after that. Just when I had given up, I received a call and scheduled an interview the week after. Two one-on-one sessions, all behavioral questions. They were candid discussions on what I am looking for, and what I can bring to the table. Received an offer the same day.

    I had another offer that beat BAH's by 14k. I brought it up, and BAH increased theirs by 3k. Still 11k less, but I felt comfortable with the overall package.
