    Inside Sales Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Chicago, IL

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at CDW in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    took 1+ week and was a pretty basic interview. Applied online and got a call from a recruiter and had your basic phone interview. Did pretty well on the phone interview and moved to the one on one interview. Was also pretty standard. Got an offer, but the base pay is ridiculously low.

    Inside Sales Account Manager Interview

    Extremely quick process. They want you to be able to commit to accepting a job after two interviews. I am still in the interviewing process because I was not ready to commit to taking a job yet. They were very nice in holding off on the final interview for two weeks so I could evaluate the current situation and decide if the job was right for me.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Chandler, AZ
    Anonymous Employee in Chandler, AZ
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CDW in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I initially received a phone call to schedule an additional interview over the phone. The second interview took around 30-45 minutes. All of the questions were typical interview questions. I was asked thoroughly about my previous experience from 6-8 years ago. The pay and commission did not surpass my current position. I asked the interviewer if they were open to negotiation of pay and commission rates. The interviewer explained that this position was non-negotiable. I explained to the CDW associate I would not be able to move forward with the position because of the salary decrease.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 days - interviewed at CDW in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. Immidiately took an online personality assessment. I finished this by 9 am. I receive a a call at 2 to schedule a phone interview for ten the next day. The interview was very basic. Asked about a sales experience when I upgraded a customer. Asked about my college degree. She offered job right away. Definitely in a rush to hire. They are apparently looking to start a training class aug 11. This is a position for someone with little sales experience. Salary is the lowest I have seen-25k an avg rep can make 35k. First few months you make 12/hr. and 70-100 outbound calls a day to build a book of business. Not what I'm looking for. I Pursued this opp based on the reviews of the company and their standing. This is an excellent company from what I have read .

    Inside Sales Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed in-person. The process took 1 week - interviewed at CDW in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    There is a prescreen with recruiting. Next there is a prescreen personality test, finally you interview with a hiring manager, possibly another if that manager thinks you are a good candidate but not specifically for them. The recruiting stage was the easiest as they are really trying to fill candidates. So they will help/steer you towards the answer they would like. Remember that as it will come in handy later.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions are pretty standard for a sales role. Situational in content and plenty about overcoming obstacles or objections.   View Answer

    Phone interview was straight to the point, we got into salary pretty quickly because we both knew I was qualified. I turned down the offer of around 25k a year as a base salary.

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CDW in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    First, I had a phone interview with a recruiter. They asked the typical questions, and then said there was no room at the office in Chicago and I would have to go on a waiting list, or I could apply for the Vernon Hills location right away. I told them I would rather wait to interview for the Chicago office. I was then called the next day to schedule an interview for the Chicago office, so apparently they were just trying to get people to apply for the Vernon Hills office. I was then brought in for a face to face interview with the person who would become my manager. She asked typical interview questions as well, no curveballs. I was offered a position on the spot, 25K base plus commission.

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at CDW.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter. Had one phone interview with her and then an in person interview with the Manager of the sales team. The recruiter was very helpful along the way and explained every step of the process and followed up right after the in person interview. The in person interview was pretty straight forward and the manager told me exactly what to expect coming in.
