Senior Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at CGI Group in March 2014.
Interview Details – 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 Question – Unexpected in the sense that the interviews were more conversational and it threw all the prep I had done out the window. Answer Question
Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 5+ weeks - interviewed at CGI Group in November 2012.
Interview Details – They mainly want to see that you will work hard and contribute good values to a team. Just because you don't have an answer to one of the questions doesn't mean its wrong to say that you don't have an answer or you have never been in that situation before.
Interview Question – How do you work smarter, not harder? Answer Question
Consultant Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at CGI Group in November 2013.
Interview Details – I started with a 30 minute interview on campus one on one just to get a sense of my skills and comforts. It mostly went over my resume and availability. There was no initial technical screening. Then there was a follow up on the phone briefly to invite me to me to an on campus interview. The on campus interview was done on a day with about 30 other candidates and I had three separate interviews with developers. They asked me questions about my experience and problem solving, but I never actually had to write any code in a technical interview sense
Interview Question – The most difficult questions and there weren't very many were asking for programming concepts for specific languages like how inheritance works and object oriented design. There were no actual coding questions. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation was optional. They were unwilling to meet other offers.
