    Training Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at CGI (Arlington, VA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I found the interview process misleading. I interviewed for a position based on contract award in Sept 2016 and accepted an offer based on contract awarded in June 2016 . When I checked on the contract progress in late August, I was told interviews would be scheduled. After conducting a general search for contracts awarded and finding none, I signed on to the application site that posted a message stating that the organization had experienced a breach and offers were not made by the organization. It took approximately two - three weeks for the recruiter to confirm that the contract was not awarded.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at CGI (Belton, TX).

    Interview

    College hire- they have all the college students come in before graduation, usually on a Friday. It's about 10-20 people your with. You get there at 8 am and leave around 2pm. They explain the process; you will have 3 back to back 30min interviews (technical, functional, and mix), one half of the group will interview while he other half receives a presentation. There is a panel of recent college hires that the ones in the presentation will get to ask questions to. Lunch is provided and they have people eat with you, talk about anything really. The groups switch after lunch, so now the ones that were interviewed get to have the presentation and the ones that received the presentation before lunch will be interviewed. Its a long day, but not to bad. The interviewers will ask some hard questions, so do your research on the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CGI (Athens, OH).

    Interview

    Bad. Took over a month to set up 3 interviews, all of which were phone interviews. And took 2 weeks to hear if I had gotten an offer or not. After my first initial interview, it took over 2 weeks to even hear back if they were still interested. Phone interviews were basic. First was with a recruiter to go over the basics of the job and my background. Next was an HR interview with behavioral questions, and lastly was a technical interview.

    Average Interview

    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.
