    Had initial HR phone interview to get general information, they then set up two separate technical phone interviews with people on projects in my area, finally they set up a 1 on 1 site interview with a director that is on the project I would be on.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at CGI in July 2015.

    Interview

    They asked basic questions about my work history, education etc, the normals. They spent a lot of time describing the position. They also gave a written assessment, which was a waste of time since they said that what their department did could not be taught in school. I never heard back, called recruiter never returned my call, not even an email thanking me for my time-Kinda unprofessional.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CGI.

    Interview

    I went through 3 people for the group interview. Met each one for about 20 minutes separately. Each interviewer has a different personality so I guess they try to see if you can get along with different people.

    Interview Questions

    • For me, the most difficult question was "tell me about yourself in a minute". Honestly, I didn't prepare to talk about myself that much. I just made sure that I knew about the company. And plus the time limit of 1 minute caught me by surprise... I felt like I was in public speaking class all over again.   Answer Question

    Junior Programmer Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CGI (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    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.

    Interview Questions
