    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CGI (Fairfax, VA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through college, passed first on campus interview and then the on-site interview as well. On campus interview was pretty easy, just basic questions like tell me about yourself and why choose CGI and what makes you a good fit with CGI and describe when you made a hard decision etc. For the on-site interview, they had 2 back to back interviews. In the first one I was asked kinda similar questions but then I was asked to write a simple coding thing, which I've written below. 2nd interview was basically, tell me about yourself. I think they wanted to ask more but unfortunately I got ahead of myself and inadvertently dominated the conversation.

    Interview Questions

    • Write code using any language (even pseudo code) that prints numbers from 1 to 100, but if the number is divisible by 5, print fizz. if it is divisible by 3, print buzz. if it is divisible by both 5 and 3, print fizzbuzz. That's all   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CGI (Belton, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I met them at a job fair at my college. I interviewed with them on my campus a few weeks later. After that interview, they invited me to their site in Belton, TX (which is far away and basically in the middle of nowhere - BIG red flag). The site visit was almost all day, involved multiple presentations on the company/benefits/etc. , and contained 3 interviews, free lunch, and Q&A with current employees. The questions in the interviews were extremely basic - yet the interviewers I had did not know how to ask them and did a better job at confusing me. Don't worry about the questions. Study the SDLC and basic OOP principles, and you will be fine. But honestly, I was very unimpressed with the visit, which is one of the main reasons I turned them down. It seemed very desperate and they continuously praised Belton for being such a great place to live - like they were trying to distract the recruits from the fact that their first job out of college would be in undesirable area (Belton is similar to farm country). Pay was also well below average, and benefits were lacking. They actually explained this by saying it was because Belton had such a low cost of living. Lol.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CGI (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through college career fair. Talked with a representative there, and was called in for a one-on-one personal interview. The questions were behavioral, nothing technical. They asked questions about myself, my interests, and questions about the company, etc. I was looking for more of a software developer position, and maybe it's how I answered questions, but I did not get the position.

    Interview

    There is a two part interview process. Interviewed one was on campus, and the interviewer asked about previous experiences. I was asked some behavioral questions I believe to see if I could fit into the corporate culture. For example what do you do when you have an issue with a fellow employee/team member. I was asked to do a for loop in any programming language and about the software and development life cycle process.
