    The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in February 2014.

    Interview

    Hiring process took place over the course of about 5 weeks in February. Recruiter reached out via phone to schedule an interview. Had an initial phone screen, then was brought into the office for an in-person interview. Neither were technical - were mostly interested in my past experience (research, mostly). Recruiter and interviewers were all friendly, engaged, and articulate.

    Interview

    They have two 30 min interviews back to back. One interview was more on the technical side, asking about my projects that pertain to my major and the career field that I plan to work in. The second interview was more laid back where they asked me about myself and how I work in groups just to get to know my personality better.

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview

    Interview was with multiple teams. Nothing over technical. Project managers just wanted to see if you were a fit for company culture. The technical interview was basic network security.

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview

    Simple interview only few questions and most of it was like a discussion. Coming from military with lot of clearances it was a cake walk. They seemed to be prejudicial with their as they seem to make a decision to select candidates before the interview begins.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Very disappointed after a recruiter has informed me that they were paying 17k more for people in lower positions with no experience if they have other job offers during negotiations. Make sure to be aware of your value or just say you have an other offer on the table.
    It made me feel sorry as the recruiting team consists of back stabbers and an attitude of low balling candidates.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was a scheduled telephone conference interview. I believed that it was going to be a behavioral interview, however it was two back to back case interviews with two different people at Booz Allen; one was a lead associate and the other was a lead associate and engagement manager.

    Both were good interviewers with great, detailed questions. Know your facts about Booz Allen Hamilton as a company and ask plenty of questions. During the case interview make sure that you think out loud so that they can follow your train of thought, that's what the case interview is for.

    Interview Questions

    • The first case question was the National Zoo in DC wants to get a Panda Bear, Should they get it?

      The second case question was about a Lightbulb company who wants to expand their business into Canada because they only produce and sell within the United States; so how do they expand/grow into Canada?
