    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview Details

    Contacted by recruiter for a preliminary phone interview with basic HR questions. Profile was then sent to hiring managers. Invited to an onsite Hiring Event and interviewed with three groups of two interviewers. The groups were of different teams and positions. It is not a normal interview where you sit for one specific position. Each group went through my resume and asked how about my experience would fit into their respective position. Each group has 20 minutes face time, and the entire process was about 90 minutes. Specifically mention a date that the recruiter would get back. Recruiter confirmed an offer from one of the team in the next week.

    Software Engineer, Junior Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton.

    Interview Details

    Awesome process! Great that I've experienced various other interviews prior to my interview with Booz Allen Hamilton. They begin with an over the phone interview and if you pass the basics(knowledge about the company, the position, your own resume topped with a positive ambitious attitude - you should expect an email invitation to the next round). My session was a group session with interviewees looking to fill various other rolls within the company. There is a question and answer group portion(ask at least one genius question) and then you will be individually interviewed by 2-3 employees of the company that will be potentially working with you on the project you are interviewing for.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Impressed! After a telephone screen, by a very polished BAH Sr. Recruiter, Invited to attend a speed dating like interview event where candidates could interview with different managers working on distinct projects. Lots of coordination required of the BAH folks, but everything went smoothly and according to plan. The managers I interviewed with were both down to earth, professional and new what they were talking about. For the first time in awhile, I walked away from an interview(s) with a very positive feeling for the company and all the BAH employees I encountered along the way.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Booz Allen Hamilton in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process with this company involved 3 separate interviews that lasted about 90 minutes. Each Booz Allen representative interviewed me for 30 minutes each. Each rep had a set of questions focusing on my qualifications, knowledge about the job, information about the company, and if I was a good fit for the company. Although this process seems grueling, the interview was very relaxing. The representatives made me feel comfortable and not like I was up against the "firing squad". At the end of the interview, one rep informed me that I should be contacted by the company within 2 weeks. I'm still waiting to hear from them.
