-->For all times, they don't have the clear picture of technologies requirement of a candidate.

    Interview Questions
    Reasons for Declining

    CGI was not a good company to work as there will be no growth for the people who work hard and hike is very less
    Growth is only for people who are working in CGI for more than 5 years depends on the relationship you have with your manager

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at CGI Group.

    Interview Details

    Generally people get interview calls through some consultancy. It is very rare that the resume shared by their employees get selected.
    The interview process follows through a written examination, then first round of interview by a senior resource and then the second round by the lead of the project and then the final round by the architect. You will get to know the results after few days, as they want to choose best of the employees by comparing the candidates.
