Senior Site Strategist Interview

Anonymous Employee
Vernon Hills, IL

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at CDW in February 2014.

Interview Details – I was originally contacted by recruiter Cara DeDera Dean to find out my interest in an open ecommerce position that I was qualified for. Cara quickly proceeded to set up a phone screen interview whereby further job description and company background information was explained to me in greater detail. At that time I answered questions and asked a few specific questions which Cara answered with thoroughness and a full range of knowledge. Cara contacted me soon after the phone interview and scheduled a face to face interview with the site experience manager and a few members of his team. The interview was conducted with professionalism and all of my questions were answered by the time I left the building. It was a great experience and first impression of the organization. The final face to face interview followed the same and I was soon contacted by Cara with an offer. Overall experience was tremendous!

Interview Question – Give me an example of a complex ecommerce strategy that you initiated and oversaw from start to finish   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was given ample time to contemplate the details surrounding the offer and provide my answer.

Configuration Technician Interview

Configuration Technician
Vernon Hills, IL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CDW.

Interview Details – The process began with a technician hiring representative. Then, it escalated to a second interview with one of the technical dept. manager/supervisor. The experience, at that time, was very cordial.

Interview Question – It has been many years. I don't remember any specific question. However, they were, probably, typical interview questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation. It appears everyone started at the same rate with no experience.

Senior Accountant Interview

Anonymous Employee
Vernon Hills, IL

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at CDW in October 2013.

Interview Details – The interview process began with a 30 minute phone interview. The interviewer was very knowledgable and pleasant to talk with. She answered all my questions and provided me with information about the position, departmental structure and company philosophy.
Approx. a week after the phone interview I was called in for a face to face interview with the Hiring Manager & Supervisor. Each interview went for about 45 minutes and was very productive. Both people were easy to talk to and asked very engaging questions about my experience and how I could use that to help CDW meet it's goals. They were also very forthcoming with information about the position and the company as a whole. A week after this interview I was called in for an interview with the Director. This was also a very productive interview. I felt very comfortable talking with everyone and all my questions were answered. Two days after this interview I was offered the position and gladly accepted.

Interview Question – How does your company calculate standard costs and how often are they updated?   Answer Question

Senior Financial Analyst Interview

Senior Financial Analyst
Vernon Hills, IL

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at CDW in September 2013.

Interview Details – Initial communications were detailed and professional. I worked with a recruiter which facilitated most of the exchanges. The communications were very welcoming and seemed to anticipate the interview as well as hopeful of a positive outcome. The interview process was well organized and interviewers were focused, prepared, and well engaged in our conversation. I met with the appropriate individuals given my level and the Company provided numerous different interviewers in different departments to also allow me to gain differing perspectives from different finance groups.

Interview Question – I found no questions particularly unusual or difficult.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – My recruiter handled the negotiations and the Company offered me everything I asked for on the first round which both myself and my recruiter were thoroughly impressed by. CDW did not seem to want to nickel and dime the compensation package but rather demonstrate their investment into their employees by offering a fair package that I requested.

Supply Chain Analyst Interview

Anonymous Employee
Vernon Hills, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at CDW in October 2011.

Interview Details – Applied on CDW's website, received a phone call the next day from CDW's recruiter. Consisted of a brief phone interview, basically screening me to see if I'd be a good fit for the position. Went into CDW the next day for a face to face interview with the hiring manager and an associate. Was very laid back. Both parties seemed very nice and knew what they were looking for. Received a phone call two hours later extending an offer. Was honestly the quickest interview process I've ever been through. The recruiter even said that this was extremely fast and was very surprised how quickly it went.

Negotiation Details – I was happy with the offer so didn't feel it necessary to negotiate.
