I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at CDW in June 2012.

Interview Details – Very easy and painless. Submit to two rounds of phone interviews before sitting down with your would-be manager to answer questions and align goals. Manager will offer the job on the spot with 24-hours to accept. Once hired, you are expected to submit to 3-months of classroom training, then an additional 4-months of 'academy' training.

Interview Details – Hiring process is very laid back. They make you wait and sometimes reschedule a second interview. As you very basic questions nothing too hard. As long as you bring a resume, can hold a conversation, and are an upbeat person you have the job

Account Manager Interview

Account Manager
Chandler, AZ

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at CDW.

Interview Details – There was a test to see what "personality" your were as instructed by the recruiter. The q & a were designed to find the "salesman." But, you would have to be ignorant to not figure out how to answer the test to continue on in the process. Phone interview from the best of my memory was standard questions with the recruiter, tell me about yourself, how did you hear about us? Second interview was with Sales Manager, various questions that were easy. It was the standard format that you would find in any interview experience. Strengths, weaknesses, tell me about a time you worked alone, on a team; final interview was with Director, questions were not as specific as sales manager interview, it was more of an acceptance/congratulations interview; upon leaving, there is a standard exit interview with the corporate office.

Negotiation Details – No negotiation; If you would like to make more than 25000 a year, go somewhere else and run! It took the job because at the time I had to take it and would never go back a second time around.

Account Manager Interview

Account Manager
Herndon, VA

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at CDW in October 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online and was then sent an email for a personality assessment. After the assessment was called and asked if I would like to set up a phone interview. Phone interviewed the next day lasted about 40 minutes and everything went well so I was asked to go into the office for an interview with a sales manager. Went in the next day and had an hour long interview with the sales manager who was kind and helpful. Asked different questions about my past experiences and then went through some sales exercises. Overall great interviewing process. Pretty thorough but they were very honest along the way.

Interview Question – The business exercises were a bit challenging but they were also fun and let you show your attributes.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Told me what every account manager receives as a base and that there was uncapped commission and spiffs.
