    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CDW (Chandler, AZ) in June 2014.

    Interview

    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

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at CDW (Chandler, AZ).

    Interview

    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

    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.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at CDW (Chandler, AZ) in June 2011.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter while still attending University. She scheduled a quick phone interview and asked me to attend an open house with a tour of the facility and a panel in which we could ask questions about the position we were interviewing for and anything else we were curious about. After the panel we were asked to schedule a follow up interview with a manager at the company. After being rescheduled twice, I finally was able to interview. The manager I interviewed with was extremely unprofessional, drinking an energy drink and complaining about his lack of sleep throughout. He let me know that If i were to move on in the process I will be contacted, and that it was promising. A week later I received an email stating that they were pursuing other candidates.
