Interview Questions


"We talked about my previous work experience and what I had learned from it. There were also questions around what I knew about CGI."
Graduate, Reading
"There were questions about my course, skills and hobbies listed, as well as situational questions."
Intern, Leatherhead, Surrey
"There were the normal competency questions about teamwork, leadership and my past projects and experience. There was also a short writing test."
Graduate, Reading
"I was asked situational questions based around various desired qualities. An example would be: tell me about a time when you disagreed with a co-worker and how you went about resolving it."
Graduate, Birmingham
"There were mainly technical questions about the types of technologies I had used, the projects I had worked on and what they involved. There were also some general questions about my work experience outside of university and some general chat about me as a person."
Graduate, Edinburgh
"I was asked about my previous employment and volunteering activities. I also had to provide examples of my experience in conflict resolution and meeting deadlines."
Graduate, Leatherhead, Surrey
"Questions were about what my interests were (both technical and personal) and my previous experiences."
Entry level, Leatherhead


"A very standard set of questions. There was also part of the one-to-one interview that was based around a small essay piece that was to be pre-prepared."
Graduate, London
"There were a lot of 'can you give an example of a time where you demonstrated X skill' questions, which can be tricky. But as long as you practise they shouldn't faze you. Don't worry about re using the same experience for multiple questions."
"Give examples of times you have shown team work, communication skills, and used your initiative."
Graduate, Bridgend
"Give an example of a time you felt like giving up or felt very low. Give an example of a time you had to work to a schedule. Give an example of a time you had to work with someone especially difficult etc."
Graduate, Leatherhead
"How would you deal with a difficult team member?"
Graduate, Edinburgh
"The key questions that I was asked were less technical and more personal, such as where I'd like my career to go in the future and how I'd be able to adapt in a working environment like this straight out of university. These questions may seem intimidating at first but they are asked to ensure that CGI would be the best fit for you. The managers here really do care about you on a personal level and want you to be the best that you can be."
Graduate, Bridgend (Wales)


"I was asked a lot of questions about the company, where I see my career going, how I've solved various problems and my technical knowledge."
Graduate, Reading
"My interview consisted mostly of competency-based questions."
Graduate, Bristol
"Questions included: describe a time you have worked on a team and describe a time you've set a goal and worked towards it."
Graduate, Gloucester
"I was asked the standard interview questions regarding the company, industry, competitors, along with competency-based questions."
Graduate, Bristol
"Questions are competency-based and specific to the role you apply for. In my case there were questions on software testing as well as general competency based questions such as "Can you give an example of when you contributed to a team" and "What are your strengths/weaknesses"."
Graduate, Bridgend
