Inside Sales Account Manager Interview

Inside Sales Account Manager
Phoenix, AZ

The process took 2 days - interviewed at CDW in June 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online. Immidiately took an online personality assessment. I finished this by 9 am. I receive a a call at 2 to schedule a phone interview for ten the next day. The interview was very basic. Asked about a sales experience when I upgraded a customer. Asked about my college degree. She offered job right away. Definitely in a rush to hire. They are apparently looking to start a training class aug 11. This is a position for someone with little sales experience. Salary is the lowest I have seen-25k an avg rep can make 35k. First few months you make 12/hr. and 70-100 outbound calls a day to build a book of business. Not what I'm looking for. I Pursued this opp based on the reviews of the company and their standing. This is an excellent company from what I have read .

Interview Question – Explain a time you up sold a customer   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Salary was extremely low. Over qualified for specific position

Inside Sales Account Manager Interview

Inside Sales Account Manager
Chicago, IL

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at CDW in February 2010.

Interview Details – There is a prescreen with recruiting. Next there is a prescreen personality test, finally you interview with a hiring manager, possibly another if that manager thinks you are a good candidate but not specifically for them. The recruiting stage was the easiest as they are really trying to fill candidates. So they will help/steer you towards the answer they would like. Remember that as it will come in handy later.

Interview Question – The questions are pretty standard for a sales role. Situational in content and plenty about overcoming obstacles or objections.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation for this role

Inside Sales Account Manager
Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CDW in March 2011.

Interview Details – First, I had a phone interview with a recruiter. They asked the typical questions, and then said there was no room at the office in Chicago and I would have to go on a waiting list, or I could apply for the Vernon Hills location right away. I told them I would rather wait to interview for the Chicago office. I was then called the next day to schedule an interview for the Chicago office, so apparently they were just trying to get people to apply for the Vernon Hills office. I was then brought in for a face to face interview with the person who would become my manager. She asked typical interview questions as well, no curveballs. I was offered a position on the spot, 25K base plus commission.

Interview Question – Why do you think you would be a good fit in sales?   Answer Question
