Software Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Paris (France)
Declined Offer
Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CGI (Paris (France)) in November 2016.

Interview

Le processus de recrutement se fait en 2 parties, la première concerne un entretien avec le futur manager. C'est un entretien classique où le manager cherche simplement à comprendre les raisons pour laquelle on a postulé à l'offre.
Ensuite, le second entretien se déroule avec la RH de la CGI, en parallèle avec un test de QI et de Français à faire en ligne.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CGI in March 2011.

    Interview

    I got a call through recruitment agency and they had scheduled me the interview with Logica (Acquired by CGI later in 2012). I went there for interview. Initially I had a communication round. It was just a screening round. After the initial communication round was done there was a first technical round. It was quite interesting where the interviewer started asking me all the questions from all the technologies and frameworks in Java. Finally there was a HR round to negotiate my salary and expectations.

    The office was awesome. Work culture was perfect here. The timings are so flexible where we can manage our work and personal life as well.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview was pretty much straight forward and they covered all the technical areas. The difficult part which I felt was on EJB part.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    As every HR does they tried to negotiate on salary part and tried to convince. I proposed a figure and they said it was too high and finally they had given me a figure which was convincing and acceptable. It was a decent salary at that time.

    Interview

    Emails -> Career fair interview -> Emails -> On-site interview -> Emails -> Offer. The process seemed to take a very long time. About 3 months to go through all the steps.

    Interview Questions

    • General team skills and project management questions are not the easiest to answer. The technical questions that a software engineer would get are pretty simple OOP stuff. Might have to debug a simple program on paper. Nothing to be worried about though if you actually know c++/java.   Answer Question
