    Interview

    The interview process was easy. We were shown a powerpoint slide about the positions available and the company. There was a short tour of the office. Three 30 minute interviews then followed. Standard behavioral questions were asked. They said they would get back to me within two weeks, but I never got a reply. I emailed them afterwards but still no reply.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter in November 2016 shortly after a career fair held at my university. I was asked to respond with my set of skills. Within a week i was asked to come in for an on site interview. I showed up and they were extremely friendly and inviting. Everyone answered every question that i had. The in campus interview consisted of 2 30 minute interviews. Afterwards was a lunch panel with a few recent hires. At the conclusion of the interview we were told that we would be be contacted with an offer within 2 weeks. 6 weeks have passed and i have not recieved a call or email, despite reaching out to them weekly since 3 weeks of waiting and no response.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CGI (Fairfax, VA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    I had on campus interview with CGI in November. Then I got invited for in person interview in December. It was a panel interview; two people interviewed me. One was the behavior interview and another one was technical interview. It is a little difficult to contact with recruiter there. But the best way is to keep email them for an update. Finally, 2 weeks later, I heard back from them with a congratulation email.

    I applied online. I interviewed at CGI (Lafayette, LA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The interview consisted of two:
    Phone interview which was 30 minutes and an in person interview at the facility which lasted 1 hour. It was fairly simple, not too complicated. You meet with some of the workers and they are in the room with you for the panel interview. I then heard back from the company about two weeks after with a job offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at CGI in December 2016.

    Interview

    I had a brief informal phone call with a recruiter. She said that she would follow-up but she did not respond to emails and her phone number was disconnected. The recruiter did not specify the time zone for the call (I and the position were in Mountain Time, the recruiter was in Eastern Time) so there was a scheduling mix up but rescheduling was easy.

    I received an email from a recruiter requesting information about my graduation year and skills. After I replied, I had a phone interview later that week. No difficult questions were asked.

The interviewers were just normal employees. Sometimes they would interrupt me while I was answering a question. Afterwards, the recruiter told us we would receive phone calls within 2 weeks with an offer or rejection. I never received a phone call or even an email.

    Quick call for the skype call. Process was smooth and fast. However, I should have rejected the offer based on red flags. Recruiter and Management lied on couple of things because of their urgent need.
