    Had a brief interview over the phone. Then called into the office for a formal interview with 3 managers. All were different types of managers (Solutions Manager, Technical Manager, and Functional Manager) ask a few questions from each and then received a call after all interviews were done and offered a position.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at CGI (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I gave them my resume at their booth at a career fair. I received an email a week later from HR asking to set up 3 phone interviews within the next few days. The questions were primarily behavioral and less on the technology side. I think they were just trying to gauge how you would fit on the team on a personal level, such as whether or not you'd be fun or easy to work with and if you would generate any problems with the team and if you were a team player. HR was quick to respond to emails and the interviewers were calm and nice. I'd say it was a pleasant experience for me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CGI (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I had a one-on-one interview with a recruiter after a campus college fair. He told me right away that I would be contacted for the next steps. The next round was an on-site interview with 3 individuals working on different projects. The first two went really well, but the last one told me directly that he had a hard time envisioning me "excited about what I would be working on at CGI." Whether that was a tactic used to tell me to try and convince him that I really wanted the position, or if he was just being straightforward, I only really learned exactly about the role and expectations during that interview process and felt that he was probably right.
