    IT Consultant Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CGI (Nevada).

    Interview

    Relatively straight foreward on-campus interview. Nice people just be sure to make it more of a conversation than an interview. I received a 2nd round interview at the CGI site, and am still waiting to hear back from them. Seems like a great company and it would be great to work with them.

    Interview

    Completed an interview after a career fair, was asked for a second interview on location.

    Went for the second interview and it was split up into an all day event. We listening to a panel of speakers that spoke on different areas of the job and company.

    Then had an interview questionnaire with 3 different people 1 on 1.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 7+ weeks. I interviewed at CGI (Nevada) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by a recruiter without ever applying for the job. I was unfamiliar with the company and they found me through an unidentified job site. I had a phone interview that went extremely well. Then I was brought in for a 1:1 with the 2 executive managers on the account. I was called by the recruiter 3 days later to let me know that they really liked me. Over the next 6 weeks, she continued to call me periodically to ensure I had not lost interest.

    Interview Questions

    • The job description was very vague and despite me asking questions about it, I was unable to get a clear sense of what the work would entail as the interviewers didn't seem to have a true handle on what they needed.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    When I was finally offered the job the salary was considerably less than I was expecting. They were able to offer me more but I discovered later, once the role was fleshed out (over 3 months later), that my salary was still more than 20k under market average.

    Interview

    Each candidate will go through 3 interviews with various levels of mgmt and consultants. Then offers or made or not. Sometimes CGI has to wait for a project with your skillset to open up so you are billable.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Need to tell them the price you want...no ranges...there is not incentive for them to give you the high end of the range.

    Manufacturing Engineer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at CGI (Nevada) (Carson City, NV (US)) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Submitted a resume online. Follow up email with application. Interviewed one on one with the engineering manager. He was nice, he stuck fairly well to a script of standard questions and recorded responses diligently even for what I would consider the throw away questions like "describe a situation where you had a disagreement with a coworker." After interview never heard and other response. It was a slight career change for me, design engineer to manufacturing engineer but no follow up later seemed a bit strange.

    Interview Questions

    • Be prepared to answer fairly specific machining and gear manufacturing questions.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CGI (Nevada).

    Interview

    I was pre-screened by someone from HR and then passed around to various project managers for 1/2 hour interviews. Everyone expressed I was qualified for the job, so apparently I got lost in the 72,000 employee shuffle. I never heard back. I had decided it wasn't the right fit so I didn't pursue it anyway.
