    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at CDW in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    First phone call after online application and survey/personality online test, was with questions: If the location was good for me, if I’m available on the start date, and if 12$/h is satisfying me-non negotiable.
    Next phone call was a standard questions interview about my resume, experience, why I want to work for CDW, what makes me good in sales, what was my biggest achievement this year, what was the most difficult experience I had and how I handled it ETC.
    After few days I got automatically generated email that I wasn't considered anymore for the position and I cannot reapply for the same job within next following 6 months.

    Corporate Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Herndon, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Herndon, VA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at CDW.

    Interview Details

    You are initially contacted by an amazing recruiter who takes the time to get to know you and share with you the duties of the job and basically what you are getting yourself into. After initial evaluation and the first phone interview you will be asked to come in if you meet the expectations. The interview process typically involves two managers interviewing for their teams and they will look for you to show them that you are capable of the duties outlined, have you done your research on the position and if you are fine with the salary because that is non-negotiable. If you are and can pass the role play they put you through that shows that you are not the typical sales person but a possible partner that can be likable and trusted, you may be able to move on with discretion.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed 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.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Herndon, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Herndon, VA
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at CDW in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    The process consisted of a phone interview that took roughly 20 minutes. This interview was extremely easy and the recruiter was very nice. If the phone interview goes well, they ask you to come into the office for a 1-1 interview. This actually means an interview with the two managers you will be working under. This interview takes about 45 minutes. The questions are standard behavioral and situation based questions. Overall, the interviewing process is pretty easy if you prepare for it.

    Spoke on phone to personnel in Chicago. Seemed nice and helpful. Arranged for second interview with manager in local office. Met with him and thought interview went well. Lady in Chicago shared the same and said she would get back to me the next day with good news. Late in the day, received a form email saying I did not get the job. Confused and bewildered but now glad it did not work out.
