    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at CGI (Fairfax, VA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I started with a 30 minute interview on campus one on one just to get a sense of my skills and comforts. It mostly went over my resume and availability. There was no initial technical screening. Then there was a follow up on the phone briefly to invite me to me to an on campus interview. The on campus interview was done on a day with about 30 other candidates and I had three separate interviews with developers. They asked me questions about my experience and problem solving, but I never actually had to write any code in a technical interview sense

    Interview Questions

    • The most difficult questions and there weren't very many were asking for programming concepts for specific languages like how inheritance works and object oriented design. There were no actual coding questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation was optional. They were unwilling to meet other offers.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CGI (Washington, DC) in October 2013.

    Interview

    They had an interview at my college campus. They then emailed me for a second interview shortly after. The second interview session consisted of lunch, talking with young employees, and two interviews. The interviews were your basic Behavioral and were helpful for finding out what jobs the people serve.

    We also had a tour of the facility. In all it was pretty simple. One of the interviewers hadn't ever interviewed people and pretty much followed the sheet with questions he had.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CGI (Fairfax, VA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I got the first interview through my university's career center. The person I interviewed with was very nice and the interview seemed more like a conversation, which made things a lot less stressful. A few days later I got an email inviting me to an onsite interview.

    During the onsite interview you go through a mini tour, debriefing, and two behavioral interviews. They also provide lunch and a panel of new hires to answer any questions applicants may have about the company. This part is "off the record" so your participation is not evaluated in the decision process. It is solely for the benefit of the applicant.

    The interviews themselves were similar to the first interview, where the interviewer was very relaxed and conducted the interview as more of a conversation. They usually get back to you with a decision within two weeks.

    Overall, interviewing with CGI Federal will probably be the most pleasant experience you will ever have!

    Interview Questions

    Interview

    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.

    Reasons for Declining

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