    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CGI Communications.

    Interview Details

    Hiring process seemed normal, they put you in front of a few people to get a different set of eyes on you. I met with the HR coordinator first, then a Sales Vice President, followed by one of their top executives. Best part was, they were very upfront about expectations and the career path.

    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rochester, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CGI Communications in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    My interviewer was extremely unprofessional. He showed up half an hour late for my interview because he told me he had gone for a run. He then told me to shadow a sales associate while he went down to shower. He came back and then was very condescending towards me.

    After the interview he told me to think about it and call him back the next day, and when I did he didn't answer. I tried later that day. No answer. I tried the next day, no answer, the next day, the day after that, no answer. Finally I called after the weekend and left him a slightly pissed vm and he called me back and offered me the job.

    Interview Questions
