    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at CGI.

    Interview

    First there was a phone call with the recruiter/HR person then an in person interview with 2 current employees. I found the interview process thorough and it also had many elements of two way communication in which I was able to ask questions and clarify the job and my experience as it relates to the position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CGI (Fairfax, VA) in May 2018.

    Interview

    If anything, I think I'm overqualified for the position. During the interview, I introduced the concept of DevOp to the interviewers and I'm surprised that they have never heard of the term. I tried to explain the concept to them, but they're obviously confused of what I was saying. I remember having to repeat myself at least 3 times, yet they kept asking me the same question repeatedly. I also introduced some of the newer technologies such as .NET Core, Visual Studio Team Services, Functions, Serverless etc. to which they appeared to be disinterested. I also offered ideas on saving cost and improve efficiency but I guess they just preferred to maintain status quo. Oh well...

    Two step interview process consisted on getting an on-campus interview and then going to Fairfax to proceed in 2 interviews which lasted 30 minutes each. They reached out after 2 weeks and gave a final decision, very surprised to have been declined. The first interviewer was very easy going while the second was only focused on what languages I knew.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CGI (Belton, TX) in March 2018.

    Interview

    I applied after speaking with them at the career fair on campus. It was for the Belton office, however they did say that after a few years it is common for students to pursue either the Austin or Dallas offices afterwards.

    Got selected for the first round interview, which was held on campus and was a single round of technical type questions and a little of a resume review.

    The second (final) round was an invitation to come on-site after about a week later from the campus interview. That was a sit around session going over the benefits of the company, as well as more about them and the client and projects they are on.

    Then you will go through 3-types of interviews:
    > A quick thinking round where you will be asked a series of questions related to CGI and have to respond quickly / as well as forming why you fit into their core values.
    > A general behavior based interview (with more technical review questions).
    > A review of the role that fits you the best at CGI.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CGI (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I applied at my school's career fair and then had a in person screening with HR. After that, I was invited to interview on-site. The interview consisted of 3 rounds with 3 different directors. The first one was extremely rude and condescending of my experience. Due to THEIR lack of communication with HR, he thought I was there for the business analyst role. When I told him I was there for the entry-level Applications developer, he was uninterested in the conversation. I was still able to answer all the questions he asked. The second one, in the 30 minute span I was with him, he left 3 times. On top of that, he was off topic the whole interview, he kept asking about products of my current employee and whether or not he should buy them. He even had a separate note pad to write down what I was saying. The last one was nice, but I had told them that I was intent on pursuing my career in development. Two weeks later, I got the rejection email. The first two directors were unprofessional so I'm actually kind of glad I didn't get the offer.
