Senior Consultant Interview

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

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (McLean, VA) in January 2015.

Interview

First, a recruiter does a screening call. Then a Senior Associate invites you to do an in-person interview. This usually consists of 3 in-person, one-on-one interviews on the same day. Nothing out of the ordinary and no case interviews.

Interview Questions

  • They asked a lot about my past experience and goals. The one thing that through me off was that they asked for my salary range during the initial screening.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Honolulu, HI).

    Interview

    My interview process was minimal. I came in one time and met with a panel of employees who put me through a 40 minute interview. The interview focused on ensuring a cultural fit, once they had their answer I was asked questions to verify my experience that was listed on my resume. A week later I was offered the job.

    Interview Questions

    • No questions were difficult or unexpected. The questions asked were aimed at identifying qualifications but were mostly focused on ensuring a cultural fit.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I had very little room to negotiate. I was young with little experience and they did not have the contract yet so the demand was less than it would be if they needed an immediate hire to fill a position.

    very knowledgable regarding the platforms I have used in the past. They know what they are looking for and based on your resume they make you feel like they know you already.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Tallahassee, FL) in December 2014.

    Interview

    Very Loose and unstructured. Interview experiences with Booz Allen vary. Depending on who recruits and what group within you are being aligned to determines your interview. There is not a standard format to interviews. I believe there could be improvement in this area.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview

    Quite efficient process, initially screened by someone in HR, then round-robin type interviews with multiple candidates, but individual 30min well-organized, relatively simple interviews (resume walkthrough, why interested in Booz Allen etc). It was unclear during process what position exactly I was being hired for, and what team/who was interviewing and who I'd be working with, presumably because more than one position and team were hiring.

    Interview Questions

    • These depended on the individual interviewing, it didn't seem as though there was a defined set of interview questions, which made it more comfortable. No business case/case study.   Answer Question
