Cost Analyst Interview

Cost Analyst
Lawton, OK

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at CGI Group.

Interview Details – Random questions followed by an excel test.

Interview Question – Excel test was a test of basic knowledge.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I ran into someone outside of that group that knew the manager and the group leader and they told me they were unapproachable and crude.

Software Developer Interview

Software Developer
Belton, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at CGI Group in October 2013.

Interview Details – I got the initial on-campus interview through a university career fair. It was a informal and non-technical. A week later there was a set of three followup interviews on-site. One behavioral, one technical, and one about experience and qualifications that included one simple coding question. Each interview lasted about 30 minutes. The technical interview had three simple coding questions and a few general knowledge questions that were mostly about object-oriented programming.

Interview Question – Some of the behavioral questions were about times when I was in a certain situation and how I handled it. Those were harder for me than the coding questions.   Answer Question

Technical Analyst Interview

Technical Analyst
Lebanon, VA

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at CGI Group in August 2013.

Interview Details – I had first talked to a HR rep at my school and then I applied online. I was contacted by a HR rep from the Lebanon, VA office to set up a phone interview with them. The phone interview took about 30 minutes and was just a basic HR interview to see my background and what I have done in school. Then I was contacted again through email to come up to VA for an interview. Interview was an all day process, where you did a panel discussion with current employers and the HR gave a presentation about the company. Then there were three 30 minute interviews, a technical, general HR portion, and an analysis portion. They are always asking for you to ask them questions. They want to see how interested you are in there company.

Interview Question – Nothing to hard. General HR questions. Asked to a simple method using an array list. Then general oop questions.   Answer Question
