    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fairfax, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at CGI (Fairfax, VA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied to the IT Intern position, specifically for the functional business intern position, after speaking with CGI representatives at my campus. I applied online, and was contacted to have an on campus interview in the next couple of weeks. A week later I was invited down to CGI (Fairfax, VA) for a series of 2 interviews and a luncheon with recent full time college hires. All interviews were behavioral (though I explicitly was applying for a functional role, and not a technical role). They did ask what technical background I had, but as a History and Government major I was honest and they received my answer well.

    Financial Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CGI (Fairfax, VA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was relatively straight forward. They already know about your background based on the resume you submitted and I believe most of the interview focused on getting to know you and your work habits--how you fit with the rest of the team. There were a few financial-type questions, but it mostly related to what you have done in the past and listed on your resume or verbally mentioned in the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked mostly about my previous experience and reason behind my interest for their position.   Answer Question

    Training Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Arlington, VA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    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.
