Mission: CGI Communications, Inc. is a selfless organization: a group of committed individuals striving to create an environment of success and opportunity. To that end, CGI is building a company where the whole is much greater than its individual parts.
I have been working at CGI Communications full-time (More than 3 years)
I have been working for cgi for 4 years, starting in an entry level position and working my way up to a team lead. I have never worked for a company who spends so much time caring about their employees and consistently working on making their employees lives better.

Advice to Management
The digital team has two leaders that honestly care about their employees, I have always felt that they have had my back and that they have always fought for me. They both deserve recognition for how much the have improved the dept.
The presidents and Vice Presidents are very approachable and ask you to come talk to them if you have doubts or concerns, they want to hear you out and guide you in the right direction. I have never been afraid to go and chat with them to better myself and the company.
Thank you Barto for all the generosity you have shown to your employees, it has truly made my 4 years amazing.
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at CGI Communications (Rochester, NY (US)) in February 2018.
They were hiring 5 designers for their Web Design position. I came in for an interview with the two creative directors, but it ended up only being one. Just a typical get-to-know-you interview, get a feel for me as a person, me getting a feel for the position, company, and office. Reviewed some work on my portfolio but that wasn't too extensive as we were running out of time. She showed some examples of web work they do for their clients and the process they use for that.
I was contacted for a second interview scheduled for the next week. Interview 1:1 with the other director in the same format, just faster and a little different, and then did a 30 minute practical "test" they'd never done before. I met with one of their designers who took me through their WordPress (they only "design" in WP) and had me take 30 minutes with a real client brief, copy, and assets to see what I could do. I obviously didn't get super far and it didn't look great in 30 minutes, but it wasn't a big deal.
Had a short recap with the two CD's and the staff designer and they said I'd hear back the next week. I got a phone call and an offer letter via email the next day, and had to respond within two days.
It was Employee Appreciation Day at CGI Communications the other day! We love our employees, and as an added benefit, everyone received a free lunch from our client
