    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at CGI (Edinburgh, Scotland).

    Interview

    There was one face to face interview. First of all they sent me to wrong location. I had to drive back to original location.
    The interviewer was 30 minutes late and didn't even apolgize. There was another guy with him.
    They ask about CV etc then ask stupid questions. They were too unprofessional. One guy was yawning and using phone ! pathetic
    I am sure if I had asked them questions they'd be dumbfounded

    Interview

    I was referred by an acquaintance and received an email from the HR, who set up a phone interview (with the HR herself). The interview was short, she asked what skillset do I represent and what my expectations are (compensation etc.). She scheduled a face to face interview in the following week.

    There were 3 senior employees in the interview. All were polite and generally curious about my background. One of them was asking behavioural questions while the others focused on technical.

      1. What are your strengths/weakness?
      2. What has been your proudest achievement?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at CGI (Halifax, NS (Canada)) in March 2017.

    Interview

    First, I was contacted by technical recruiter and she arranged for an interview. The interview was code test followed by interview. The interviewer sent me webex link, and after joining he gave me control to his system. A use case was written and I was asked to write code for it. The use case is as follows.

    There is a list of Employee objects and Phone is an instance variable object inside Employee.
    1) When we are printing the employee object, Phone needs to be printed in a specific format
    2) Sort the employee objects inside the list based on joining date descending order
    3) If we pass list of employee objects and name of employee to a method, it should return the employee object if it has that name.

    After this coding test is completed they asked technical questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at CGI in November 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with someone who was very unpleasant to talk to. Then I got a call and they said I was to go for a technical interview. My interview was set up at White Spot! It was during the senior architect's lunch hour. He was eating chicken pot pie while asking me technical questions. He was asking questions with food in his mouth and trying to cover his mouth with his hand. It was very unprofessional and extremely rude. Theybvould not even bother allocating an hour of their time to do a proper interview!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at CGI (Glasgow, Scotland) in January 2015.

    Interview

    phone interview, online test and agency interview with a recruiter and my team leader who is a developer also. wasn't too demanding for an experienced Java expert who has the latest versions under their belt. worth revising on auto testing though as the agency didn't tell me about that aspect of this contract job
