Project Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
No Offer
Negative Experience
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.

Interview Questions

  • There were no planned questions, she just told me about the position.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CGI (Cincinnati, OH) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was really short, I spent more time waiting than actually being interviewed. The man who interviewed me was very nice and it was very conversational. The HR person who set up the interview was very unorganized and did not confirm a time or location until the night before. But other than that it was a good experience. The questions were very straight forward. Since I interviewed for the project manager position, I was asked a lot of teamwork/ leadership skills questions.

    I applied online. I interviewed at CGI.

    Interview

    After submitting the application through website, I got a call from HR after two weeks. He asked some very basic questions and mentioned there would be another phone interview with manager and director from Montreal. More than two weeks later, a meeting was scheduled. I responded to all questions during the interview. Questions mostly were standard and behavior. I thought the interview went quite well. Another two weeks pass by, finally I received a phone call from HR informed me that the resource originally working in this job decided to stay with the company.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CGI in April 2012.

    Interview

    Interview is quite below expectation. They don't follow much PMBOK standards. The Management does not know much about Project Management Skill. I think when they hire PMs they see their previous Employer. So, don't worry about interview.
