I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at CGI Group.

Interview Details – 45 min on campus interview.Mostly behavioral questions.Another on site interview both technical and behavioral questions.Basically they go through your resume and ask you questions based on that.we didn't really have enough time to go through all the questions so try to answer the questions efficiently and you will be fine.

Interview Question – As far as i remember there was only one technical question about sorting through random numbers.   Answer Question

Interviewed at CGI Group

Interview Details – Emails -> Career fair interview -> Emails -> On-site interview -> Emails -> Offer. The process seemed to take a very long time. About 3 months to go through all the steps.

Interview Question – General team skills and project management questions are not the easiest to answer. The technical questions that a software engineer would get are pretty simple OOP stuff. Might have to debug a simple program on paper. Nothing to be worried about though if you actually know c++/java.   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
Lebanon, VA

I applied through college or university and 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 Question – 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
