(talking about recent grads /entry level below... guessing it changes as you progress in career)
I don't think they ever ask you about it in an interview, but I'm guessing it is primarily used as a screening method to get rid of a large percentage of applications right off the bat. Many of the companies I interviewed with expressly stated that they are not interested if you don't have a 3.0 (and in some cases a 3.5....) Of course it varies by industry, some have much more competitive interview processes.
I'm pretty sure standard practice is to include your GPA on your resume if it is over 3.0 and leave it off if below hehe... If I saw a resume w/o a GPA listed I would probably assume it was pretty low.
Here are my GPAs:
High School - 3.91
Undergrad - 2.69
Graduate - 3.92
Do you know anything more about me now?
that High School and Grad School are much easier than Undergrad
