- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied through college or university. The process took a week – interviewed at CGI (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2015.
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.

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

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at CGI (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2013.
Three interviewers one at time; I have two consultant and a software developer. The questions are mostly behavior questions. Make sure to ask questions about the job and the company because one of my interviewers (a consultant) seem bored and not interested. I think because he interviews group of candidates, so when it get to the last one (me), he gave me the impression he wants to get the process over with and go to lunch.

- No OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
The process took 1 day – interviewed at CGI (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2011.
This was a one-on-one interview with a college recruiter. It lasted about 30 minutes and no difficult behavioural nor technical questions were asked. The recruiter began by describing the position I applied for, followed by a brief conversation about a previous internship experience of mine. The overall interview experience was neutral, as I wish the representative had been a little more conversational.

I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at CGI (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2011.
After initial phone interview, met with hiring manager, and department director. The interview process was laid-back, opposite of rapid-fire questions.
The in-house recruiter was helpful in providing me information about the interviewing process, and who all I would meet, and answered my questions regarding each of their background.
