    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at CGI (Fairfax, VA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process is pretty rigorous and I had to go through 4 levels of interviews. Each of the interview was conducted by employees from different positions and levels and it gave an impression to the interviewee what type of company one can expect. The interviews were pretty informal and was more of a conversation format rather than typical interview questions that aren't really relevant to a position. The company culture and environment seemed very friendly and amenable to an employee.

    Interview Questions

    • Unexpected in the sense that the interviews were more conversational and it threw all the prep I had done out the window.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at CGI.

    Interview

    I was originally hired over six years ago so this may be outdated. Had a phone interview with recruiter, then one on one in person interview with three individuals one of whom is the hiring manager. I actually left the company and came back after a few months. Interview was managers from the teams I used to work with. It was a panel interview but ended up informal because I knew them.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I actually rejected them at first when recruiter told me they probably won't pay what I asked for. I was going to stay with my current company at the time when they promised to bump my salary if I stayed. CGI then called back and offered me $2K more plus a $1K signing bonus.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at CGI.

    Interview

    I had one phone interview with HR person and one face-to-face interview with hiring manager and technical lead. Questions were mostly related to my previous experience. Technical questions were not very difficult and were asked with intention to check whether I really know the stuff I wrote in my resume. Overall it was a good experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at CGI (Chattanooga, TN).

    Interview

    I was contacted through Linkedin by one of CGI's recruiters. We emailed back and forth and exchanged phone calls regarding questions that I had. Once all questions were answered, I decided to proceed with the process. I passed the phone screen with the manager for the project and went in for a face-to-face interview with the client. All went well and I received an offer. Everything was handled professionally and the total time it touch from initial contact to being hired was around a month.

    Negotiation

    I was given an initial offer, but replied it was too low. So my recruiter went back and gave them my minimum number. A day later my recruiter informed me that my minimum was authorized and signed off.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at CGI in November 2012.

    Interview

    Contacted by email. Worked with recruiter to further define skill set/experience from resume found on job board. First phone interview was horrible; I followed up with the recruiter since I knew it was bad. The recruiter gave me feedback from the phone interview that I found funny and was shocked by the feedback. The recruiter was glad I followed up (do not give up) - the next phone interview for a different position was positive and I was scheduled the following week with a face-to-face interview. I was offered the job the next day at a higher pay than I had indicated and started 2 weeks later.

    Interview Questions

    • Phone interviews are tough - the first interview I was asked about the difference in agile and waterfall methodology. The interviewer was impatient and was difficult to connect with.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No need to negotiate. I received more money than asked for and the vacation time I indicated I wanted.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at CGI.

    Interview

    The process was lengthy, first you meet with HR, then management, and technical leads on the third time. The last step is the hiring manager and HR. They make sure you get to ask all you need to know to the right people and want to make sure you are a fit with the team. Great experience, not as stressful as other 4 step interviews I've done.

    I made a suggestion, they came back to me with an answer really fast. I had high expectations and they were met.
