Interview Details

There is a two part interview process. Interviewed one was on campus, and the interviewer asked about previous experiences. I was asked some behavioral questions I believe to see if I could fit into the corporate culture. For example what do you do when you have an issue with a fellow employee/team member. I was asked to do a for loop in any programming language and about the software and development life cycle process.

    very chill interview on campus with an alum, then an onsite interview with two people from different project teams. One seemed very uninterested in the answers, other seemed more lively. Both were nice. Lunch was provided with a panel of new hires for a Q&A before the interviews began.

    The process took 2 days - interviewed at CGI Group in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    The initial interview process started with a interview on my college campus which consisted of your basic interview questions. Tell me about yourself? What do you know about the company? What kind of skills have you learned that you could bring to the table for the company? A week or so later I got an email for an onsite interview where they were willing to pay for gas, food, rental car, and hotel the works for a 2 day interview which consisted of 3 interviews technical, leadership, and analytical. The questions personally I thought were very easy they did not really even have HR people doing the interviews just random employees because there were over 25 people in this interview group. I would say the interviews cant mean but so much though because I not only nailed the interviews, but I was even told by a HR person I was one of the best I still did not get an offer. Overall good process CGI is a great company, I will say though be prepared to not receive a above 50k for years due to what they call on-shoring which is building corporations in impoverished rural areas which yields low pay. If you like living in the middle of no where great opportunity for ya. Not for me though I had a better opportunity come up.

    I have been called for interview with employee referral. Interview process was quite fast and it was not too technical but rather they see your ability and confidence level to work.
    They will check more on your problem solving skills and involvement in work.Had one Technical round, peer to peer round through video conferencing(as i was in chennai) and an HR interview.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at CGI Group.

    Interview Details

    Started out by talking to a representative at a campus recruiting event. Seemed like pretty nice people and knew a little about the company before hand so I applied there and was contacted about 2 weeks later for an on campus interview. On campus interview was very laid back and conversational for the most part, just going through the resume. After that, was invited to a second round interview at main location (Fairfax) Went through a luncheon before 2 30 minute interviews with a manager and consultant. The manager was a little tough but the consultant was very relaxed. All in all a great interview experience.
