I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 8 months - interviewed at CompuCom in March 2013.
Interview Details – I went through a subcontract called Insight Global. I was promised that I would work 90 days and then be hired by CompuCom at $50,000 per year. I work for over eight months before CompuCom began negotiating my transfer. Then, I was told that the previously agreed upon salary was not available, and had to settle for $5,000 less than promised.
Interview Question – The most unexpected question was, Could I describe what the inside of a hard drive are, to a non-technical user. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They were not flexible in negotiations and I felt taken advantage of in the situation. Many of the Deskside Technicians have had similar experiences. This seems to be the way of life at CompuCom for some of the managers and teams in Houston.
I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CompuCom in December 2012.
Interview Details – The interview went well. Forward, amicable, and pretty casual. Asked questions about interests, work ethic, and asked a few hypothetical questions about how I'd handle specific questions including deadline/time management and managing resources. Immediate managers present, so only one interview needed.
Interview Question – There weren't any difficult questions. All were fairly straightforward. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – If you are hired, carefully review any discrepancies between your verbal offer and the written one.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 days - interviewed at CompuCom in November 2012.
Interview Details – The interview is a one-on-one with the hiring manager for the group you will be working for. You are not anywhere near the floor or group you will be working with when you are brought in. So, you will have no initial view of the work culture. The interview will include some questions that may be beyond your technical expertise to see how well you work in "unknown" situations.
Interview Question – Where do you live? View Answer
Negotiation Details – No negotiation was allowed.
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at CompuCom in October 2012.
Interview Details – One-on-one interview with the branch manager. I did a presentation in front of the other training staff so they could get a feel for my presentation style.
Interview Question – None Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Yes. I was.
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at CompuCom in September 2012.
Interview Details –
Interview was a bit strange. Started out ok, tell us about your work history, etc. Then it sort of shifted to things like “are you able to lift and carry 50 lbs?” Well I am and I said so, but it went south after that. Most of the questions followed the same “Are you ok with X?” format.
working in a dusty retail environment,
being on a lift to install a access point,
getting dirty while working on a printer,
43 cents a mile reimbursement vs. the standard 50,
can you check your email throughout the day while in the field,
we have a complicated parts and inventory system, can you work with that?
This went on for a good thirty minutes.
Almost a litany of issues they might have had with past employees that they were hoping to avoid by screening out anyone that answered no to any of the interview question. I ended up getting the job, but being able to work with a complicated parts and inventory system isn't the same as automatically knowing how to from day one. I think these guys were both shocked and disappointed by that.
Interview Question – None really. Boilerplate stuff. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – It was through a temp agency, they didn't open compensation negotiations after they interview.
Very Easy Interview
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at CompuCom in September 2012.
Interview Details – Was a total joke of an interview. The person has no clue what a programmer does, no clue on what the salary was or . I expected a lot more for a company stating this role is in high demand. The person interviewing me said she was just hired and complained about her own boss. This is not the environment I would want to work in. I will say no if I get any kind of offer.
Interview Question – No IT related questions unless you call questions about Gaming related. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Will not work for someone who doesn't have a clue on what I do!
I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at CompuCom.
Interview Details – I got the offer from a recruiter in Robert Half Technology,he called me and set an appointment in Robert Half Tech and asked me some personal questions and then send me a link that was a 50 multiple choice questions about Cisco routers and switches,the questions were like Cisco academy ones...

Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at CompuCom in August 2012.
Interview Details – Laborious and uncoordinated. I had to manage the process myself in order for them to keep their promises.
Interview Question – Not many...too many of the people I interviewed with just wanted to talk a lot, so I let them. View Answer
Reason for Declining – Was not impressed with the ability of the managers and executives I spoke with in that they did not seem to know what was going on with each other, nor did they have a clear strategy. There did seem to be a lot of big egos and a lot of politics....I was actually warned about some of the people I interviewed with by others I interviewed with. It was like...be careful of this guy, he is a ball buster...be careful of her, she is a queen b!tC7....it was really messed up. I knew it was a good thing to turn them down.
