    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CGI (Fairfax, VA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Process involved two interviews, first one very standard, questions about yourself, personality, how you react in different situations. The second interview, my interviewer spoke most of the time, which worried me as I didn't really get to explain much of my thinking, skills, or mindset to him.

    Technology Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fairfax, VA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CGI (Fairfax, VA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I talked with a recruiter at a job fair, the recruiter signed me up for an interview the next day on campus. The first interview was a typical behavioral interview where they went through my resume and asked me a couple questions about CGI/CGI history (none of which I knew).

    Two weeks later I was invited to an onsite interview. I wish they gave us more notice about this interview, the interview was on Friday and they send the invitation on Sunday asking for confirmation within 48 hours. The onsite interview consisted of a short presentation about CGI followed by two interviews. I originally applied for the technical analyst position but for some reason both interviewers interviewed me for the functional analyst position. However, when I told my second interviewer that I was interested in the technical analyst position he switched over and gave me a technical interview. The behavioral interview was generic and the technical interview required pseudo code. I received an offer a week later.

    I declined my offer because the salary was not very competitive and the company culture was very stiff and unfriendly.

    Project Manager Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at CGI in July 2017.

    Interview

    Contacted by a recruiter about the position and decided a phone interview would be set up by a coordinator. (Great!) The coordinator sent an email the next day with a set interview date/time. No discussion about agreeable options. It was changed and confirmed by email. Early in the morning on the day of the interview, the coordinator updated the calendar invite with the word "Cancelled" added to the front and no other changes. I had to reach out to find out what happened. The cancellation was confirmed by email with no acknowledgement of how poorly it was handled.
