    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Fairfax, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fairfax, VA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at CGI Group in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I got the first interview through my university's career center. The person I interviewed with was very nice and the interview seemed more like a conversation, which made things a lot less stressful. A few days later I got an email inviting me to an onsite interview.

    During the onsite interview you go through a mini tour, debriefing, and two behavioral interviews. They also provide lunch and a panel of new hires to answer any questions applicants may have about the company. This part is "off the record" so your participation is not evaluated in the decision process. It is solely for the benefit of the applicant.

    The interviews themselves were similar to the first interview, where the interviewer was very relaxed and conducted the interview as more of a conversation. They usually get back to you with a decision within two weeks.

    Overall, interviewing with CGI Federal will probably be the most pleasant experience you will ever have!

    Interview Questions

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at CGI Group in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    No phone interview. I met the recruiter at a career fair. After a week, I went in for the interview. It was pretty relaxed with more behavioral and situational questions than technical ones.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Lebanon, VA
    Anonymous Employee in Lebanon, VA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at CGI Group in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    The process was very straight forward. I met them at the career fair at my school and handed them my resume. I received an e-mail from the HR that they would like to interview with on campus. The interview date was set a day or two after the career fair. It was very easy. Then they invited to come for an on-site interview. Once I was made it for the interview.
    It was again very very easy. BE AWARE: if you expect to make a market level salary, then look elsewhere.

    Interview Questions
    • There are not any hard questions. I was asked to explain what polymorphous is. And what is the difference between XML and HTML.   Answer Question

    Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lebanon, VA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at CGI Group in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    The day consisted of three 30 minute one on one interviews with several people. One asked technical questions, one talked with me about what kind of alcohol he likes to drink and one just talked to me about his fiance.

    Interviewers are chosen based on who they can get to do it and they won't necessarily be on the team you will be working on or doing anything like what you are applying to do. One of my interviewers hadn't even been with the company for a full year.

    (The interview was in 2008, but glassdoor didn't give me that option.)

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate, but I wish I had. I was just ecstatic at getting an offer. I later learned that they will negotiate, so make sure you do. (Both salary and vacation time are negotiable)
