    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeks - interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview Details

    Was referred-in by current employee with the company, who also gave me the hiring manager's name. I sent my cover letter-resume to the hiring manager directly. A couple weeks later, I was contacted by an external recruiter who did a very cursory 15 minute phone interview. A couple weeks later I was contacted by a junior team member and we did two case exercises over the phone. I was then invited to final round where I interviewed with 6 team members, each of varying levels of seniority and each conducting a case exercise.

    In general the case exercises were not particularly difficult and there were no typical brain-teaser questions.

    I heard back over two weeks later that I hadn't been offered the position.

    Interview Questions
    • No particularly difficult questions. One slightly challenging case.   View Answer
