    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CGI Group in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interview is quite below expectation. They don't follow much PMBOK standards. The Management does not know much about Project Management Skill. I think when they hire PMs they see their previous Employer. So, don't worry about interview.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 days - interviewed at CGI Group in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    It all starts with a 1-1 with an HR person who selected your CV based on keywords and essentially has no knowledge whatsoever of what your job looks like. Basically they will check your languages (English is always a requirement, also in QC-based positions) and if you may put the company to shame,

    Next step is a real interview with a few directors, mostly unqualified for their role. If one of them likes how you answer the general questions you will be hired.

    I interviewed online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at CGI Group in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    The company first gave me a phone call to assess my experience. The HR guys explained the job and he told me that there was going to be a lot of challenges.

    So we booked an interview. The HR guys and the IT manager interview me. They explained the position and ask about my experience. While talking with them I realized that the work was going to be very clerical so I had to decline the job at they end of they interview. I told them that if they ever needed a more experience person, I would love to redo another interview. The interview was not too formal. Friendly and relax atmosphere.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at CGI Group in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    Quite effective. Both the phone and in-person interviewers were well prepared and leveraged standard interview response forms to manage the discussion and to capture the salient responses. The interviews themselves were relatively casual, low stress interviews without any of the artificial "games" that interviewers sometimes play.
