    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 months - interviewed at CGI Group in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed on my campus in September 2011. There was one 30-minute interview that was basic interview material and resume review. They extended an invitation for a site visit in November, where I had two more 30-min interviews that were again just basic behavior and resume reviews, in addition to lunch and time with the recruiters. I received my offer about two weeks after that and was given two weeks plus one extension to consider signing.

    Entry Level IT Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Fairfax, VA
    Anonymous Employee in Fairfax, VA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at CGI Group in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had my resume posted on my college's career site and received an email from the CGI recruiter requesting an interview. I went through my school's site to schedule an on campus interview. The interview was originally scheduled on the Monday that hurricane Sandy hit, so it ended up being pushed back a week. My interviewer said that he was not normally the one that did the initial screening but was here due to the rescheduling and would not be asking typical interview questions. The position I was interviewing for was a technical position, but most of the questions just had to do with the company. I came away feeling like I knew a lot about the company and he knew a lot about me, but not about the technical skills that I could bring. He did not have a business card on him at the time so I wasn't able to pursue further contact after the interview and have not heard back from them yet.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no technical questions asked during the interview, it was mostly about what I was looking for.   Answer Question

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at CGI Group.

    Interview Details

    very chill interview on campus with an alum, then an onsite interview with two people from different project teams. One seemed very uninterested in the answers, other seemed more lively. Both were nice. Lunch was provided with a panel of new hires for a Q&A before the interviews began.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at CGI Group in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied through on-campus recruiting & made it through to first-round interviews. Thought I completely bombed the interview - didn't have good chemistry with the interviewer, who basically read off questions on a list (non-stop behavioral questions) & didn't seem like she wanted to be there. Invited to second round interviews at their office. Started off with a nice luncheon and group panel of recent college hires to answer questions. Afterwards, had a brief office tour & 2 30-min. interviews with a consultant and manager. Went through resume with consultant, while manager asked more tricky questions. Not bad experience.

    Interview Questions
    • What's something cool that you did in the last 6 or 8 months?

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at CGI Group in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through my college network and got into an on-campus interview. The interviewer was an alumni and we talked about classes. It consisted of a half hour of mostly behavioral questions.

    Then moved up to the onsite interview in Herndon. They showed us around the building and got about 6-7 consultants for us to ask anything. Then it came down to two 40 minute interviews. Once again they were mostly behavioral questions. Very friendly people.

    Heard back from them the following week with an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Behavioral, working with lazy coworkers, challenges, etc.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Declined because I received another offer from a similar company that I felt a better fit in.
