    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at CGI (Fairfax, VA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The process was a little broken, but that happens on occasion. Several phone interviews over a few weeks with questions relating to business and industry knowledge. In-person interview was laid out in a typical fashion with the meeting of multiple people in the leadership. Went well, despite being provided the wrong location by the recruiter.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at CGI (Crystal City, VA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I went through a panel of three interviewers that asked many simple questions and never heard back after the interview. I felt like the process was unorganized and the interviewers at the Crystal City office were not highly skilled at there areas of expertise. I believe the company prefers to hire college graduates rather than skilled experienced applicants.

    Technical Consultant Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at CGI (Fairfax, VA).

    Interview

    On campus interview, easy personality questions. Nice recruiter knew the answers to most of my questions. Second round interview was at the Fairfax office and was unorganized. 2 out of 4 of the people interviewing me were unavailable. The other 2 interviews went well. Learned a lot about how the company is run. One of the two unavailable interviewers sent a replacement. The poor replacement had never done an interview before and had nothing prepared. But it gave me an honest look at that working there would look like.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing complicated, easy technical questions nothing really to worry about. I defiantly over prepared.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They seemed resistant to negotiating but ended up accepting my counter offer and let me pick my location.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CGI (Fairfax, VA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online on the cgi careers page and was contacted about a month later for a phone interview. The manager worked remotely but we finally scheduled an interview for the following week. I went on the interview and it was very laid back. They're interested more in knowing about you and your future plans than technical skills. I got an offer within a week for more than I asked for.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I got more than I asked for so there was no negotiation.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at CGI (Fairfax, VA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    The hiring process is pretty rigorous and I had to go through 4 levels of interviews. Each of the interview was conducted by employees from different positions and levels and it gave an impression to the interviewee what type of company one can expect.

    The interviews were pretty informal and was more of a conversation format rather than typical interview questions that aren't really relevant to a position. The company culture and environment seemed very friendly and amenable to an employee.

    Interview Questions

    • Unexpected in the sense that the interviews were more conversational and it threw all the prep I had done out the window.   Answer Question
