    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Washington, DC) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Frankly speaking, going thru the layers of recruiters in order to get to speak to someone is tiring but understandable. I got invited to their hiring event and talked to two people from one project. As I am reflecting, the interview was quite intense and technical; a guy asked me everything on my resume to see if I bs'ed thru and asked me to explain major machine learning models, flask API, git, etc. Afterwards, I spoke to a lady and the lady asked me about hadoop, spark, mapreduce paradigm, a specific function in Pandas, etc. In front of her, I even had to do a coding challenge besides the questions.

    Interview Questions

    • what is a specific function in Pandas that generates a dummy variable?   Answer Question

    Fairly informal interview process. It was approximately two hours long and I met with 4 people in total. The interview was primarily a discussion of the work I would be involved with, with questions mingled about the conversation pertaining to my knowledge, skills, and experience. Questions were generally related to content in the job posting or what I talked about in my resume or cover letter.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Washington, DC) in March 2017.

    Interview

    This was a large interview event at a conference center. Hundreds of college students were invited. There was a general welcome speech, then we were split into two or three different groups. For about an hour one group had a networking session where interviewees could talk to current employees and learn about specific projects BAH works on. The following hour consisted of two one-on-one interviews with two different hiring managers. Both interviews were very laid back and comfortable. There weren't any trick questions at all.
     It was very conversational. There were snacks too. Lots of snacks.

    Management Consulting Senior Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I spoke with a recruiter in late October about the senior consultant position and I was setup to interview a week later but somethings fell through. The recruiter reached back out to me late November and we got the ball rolling again and scheduled another interview. It was a general management consultant interview with about 15 other candidates to be interviewed. We were separated into different rooms where I met with 2 different managers working different projects. We discussed my overall skills and background. It was an easy going conversation with both managers, I knew my resume very well and could speak to everything they asked me about. I was even asked about certain Excel skills and I was honest in telling them that I was no expert in Excel but I can always research.

    I received positive feedback about my interview within 48 hours and I was offered the position the following week.
