    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at CGI.

    Interview Details

    Applied through my university and was accepted for an interview. The interview was simply going through my resume. The CGI employee asked me a few behavioral questions but for the most part it was conversational. Know a little about CGI because they will ask you that question. Also, they asked me to name a time i had multiple options to solve a problem and had to choose one. If you get accepted to the next round, they invite you to their office in Lebanon Virginia where you interview with a functional, technical, and management teams.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at CGI in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    The CGI recruiters attended our college employer showcase on campus. There were two of them and the setting was relaxed and enjoyable. Since it was early in the morning, there were only a few students and we had the opportunity for some good one on one conversations with both of them. She reviewed my resume and said to expect an email in a couple of days. Received an email the next day requesting a phone interview. Set up the time for the phone interview and she called exactly at the time specified. The interview went smoothly recapping some of the topics discussed in person, with some additional questions technical and personal.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at CGI in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Started with a 1:1 behavioral interview on campus. More or less to see if you are likable, I feel. About a week later I got invited to their offices for round 2. That consisted of three interviews in the morning. Mostly behavioral with alittle bit of technical thrown in to see if you had a baseline of applicable knowledge. The afternoon was spent with a panel to answer any questions and a power point going over benefits. I got an offer two weeks later.

    Interview Details

    There is a two part interview process. Interviewed one was on campus, and the interviewer asked about previous experiences. I was asked some behavioral questions I believe to see if I could fit into the corporate culture. For example what do you do when you have an issue with a fellow employee/team member. I was asked to do a for loop in any programming language and about the software and development life cycle process.
