    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.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CGI (Fairfax, VA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through college, passed first on campus interview and then the on-site interview as well. On campus interview was pretty easy, just basic questions like tell me about yourself and why choose CGI and what makes you a good fit with CGI and describe when you made a hard decision etc. For the on-site interview, they had 2 back to back interviews. In the first one I was asked kinda similar questions but then I was asked to write a simple coding thing, which I've written below. 2nd interview was basically, tell me about yourself. I think they wanted to ask more but unfortunately I got ahead of myself and inadvertently dominated the conversation.

    Interview Questions

    • Write code using any language (even pseudo code) that prints numbers from 1 to 100, but if the number is divisible by 5, print fizz. if it is divisible by 3, print buzz. if it is divisible by both 5 and 3, print fizzbuzz. That's all   Answer Question

    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.
