    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at CGI (Edmonton, AB (Canada)) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process - First telephonic screening
    2nd - Telephonic interview with a senior project manager
    3rd - in person interview with Director of Edmonton CGI and one Senior Project Manager

    After 3 weeks on the 3rd interview process, tried to reach the cordinator via email however he didnt bother to respond back (too busy i guess).

    Eventually decide to use the power of calling and then he said he will send out details shortly. Next day i get an email from CGI.

    Senior Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Edmonton, AB (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CGI (Edmonton, AB (Canada)).

    Interview

    There is at least one telephone conversation with your CGI recruiter who will do the basic HR stuff; the technical-level and cultural-fit-level interview will be done in person (whenever possible), and will entail 60 to 90 minutes of being challenged on your knowledge and on difficult situations you may face during a CGI project engagement. As you might expect, your knowledge and confidence will be tested, as they want to see how you maintain professionalism and poise under pressure.

    If you get past the recruit phone interview and the in-person interview, you may get a job offer. This offer will be conditional upon a criminal record check and credit check and reference check. Expect that CGI will phone at least two of your references if not more.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about your consulting experience. What was the best gig you've been on, and the worst? Describe a situation when you had a conflict with a customer, and what you did to resolve the conflict.   1 Answer

    Applications Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Edmonton, AB (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at CGI (Edmonton, AB (Canada)) in July 2009.

    Interview

    First interview was with an HR consultant, second interview was with a project manager. No technical resource was utilized for the interview process.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked where I saw myself in five years; this is typically a bogus throw-away question for someone in my field.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate a staring salary just under $60,000 / year. I recommend strongly to negotiate for a higher salary than usual as you will be stuck at that figure with no bonuses or profit share for many years going forward.
