    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at CDW (Chicago, IL).

    It's was your typical interview. Follow the STARS method and you should be fine. There were no surprises or trick questions. I think the biggest thing is being able to answer why you want the job.

    Inside Sales Account Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CDW in August 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview with recruiter then personality test. If you pass that the final round is a in-person interview with a sales manager and a tour of the office with your recruiter. Most people get the job once they get to the actual office interview. Just act dynamic and be confident once you get to the final round. Most questions are behavioral and they just want a chance to get to know who you are. Turned it down due to low base salary. Planning on moving to California next year and your accounts don't start rolling in money till like your 3rd year, then its big bucks.

    Interview Questions

    • All stars based behavioral questions. There was one sales based question about if a competitor left you for another company for a cheaper product, what would you do to persuade them back to CDW.   Answer Question
