    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at CDW in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    The process up to meeting with the hiring supervisor went pretty smoothly. An HR phone interview and then I met with the team in person, which also went well. When I showed up for the F2F meeting, the hiring director was in the wrong location (downtown while I was in the suburbs). Took a while to reschedule due to her schedule and when we finally met, it did not go well.

    Solutions Manager Services Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vernon Hills, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at CDW in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    I had 2 phone interviews and five face to face meetings. Two with the hiring manager and three with members of the hiring manager's team. The people who I met with were professional. The work environment very energetic. The only challenge I had was that there seemed to be some confusion about the type of candidate they were looking for.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't think you have strong enough technical background to do this job. Am I correct? (This after I was told by the HR representative and the hiring manager that a technical background was not what the position required.)   Answer Question

    Telephony Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vernon Hills, IL
    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at CDW in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was presented with an itinerary with meeting times for multiple members of the IT team. One of the engineers did not show up until the first phase was half over. Another engineers took half of the first phase checking and replying to e-mails on his Blackberry. His attention was obviously occupied by his Blackberry because he was oblivious to the fact that he was repeating questions. The second phase was with the manager of the engineering team. The manager was obviously very ill with some sort of cold or bronchitis and could barely speak but was very thorough in her questioning of technical, organizational, and behavioral aspects. During the third phase, the senior manager was very condescending and made it a point for me to know that I was wasting his time.

    24 hours after the interview, I withdrew my candidacy.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at CDW in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was a little long they could have had more group /panel folks versus individual interviews initially. After the lengthy interview process I was roped along only to find out that i had to inquire that the position was given to someone who was promoted from within. The common courtesy is to let your candidates know that the position was filled ....
