Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at CompuCom in July 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.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at CompuCom in September 2009.
Interview Details – Asked what i can do,when can i start. I got a call next week to start. Good company if you need experience for like a year. Don't think you can start your career in this company because the pay is too low!!!
Interview Question – What can you do? View Answer
Negotiation Details – Yes I did. They were offering me less then I was suppose to get and even negotiated the offer was not good enough. But the economy sucks so considered the job and money.
Very Difficult Interview
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CompuCom in June 2012.
Interview Details – Overall this company is a bit old and stodgy. Their pay scales aren't that great and they appear to work people to death. The corporate headquarters is worn looking and once you get into the inside it becomes even more apparent. Their employees think the benefits and salary are fantastic - I have news for them. The initial interview was positive but the panel interview was not very professional. You could tell they were trying to put the person on the spot. Definitely behavioral interviews. Overall "could I work with this person, are they nice" took precedence over how well the person would adapt to the position. The position was new and I felt they were poorly prepared and had unrealistic expectations in terms of time and materials for the position and the projects they envisioned. One of the two panel interviewers was almost hostile and the other was pleasant but appeared to reserve judgement. Definitely didn't want to hear that things might take more time than they anticipated. Thus it was good that I didn't get the position because I think I would have spent 90% of my time justifying time and resources on deliverables. I've seen companies hire people in positions like this before under similar circumstances - six months later they're looking for a new person because either the person quits - or the organization terminates them - in either case they're left looking for a new person again too soon. If you interview for a similar position make certain you're prepared to deliver what they want in the time frames they suggest and be very specific. Also insure you have a good command of all the software they use because you're not going to receive much inside support. You'll need a thick skin on this team and great self-esteem because these are rough-hewn team members.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at CompuCom in October 2009.
Interview Details – The recruiter was told 2 managers would be interviewing me after my 1:1 phone interview; this was not correct. 5...yes FIVE managers interviewed me for a position that paid less than $40k a year.
The interview is absolutely EASY to pass. If you know basic networking, basic MS Office 2007/2010 questions and a little bit about Windows 7 (with outlook, configuring themes, shortcuts and fixing common driver issues over the phone) you will do fine..
Negotiation Details – They will offer you the absolutely lowest the position pays for whichever client is interested in you. ALWAYS ask for 20% more hourly than what they offer, because if you nailed the interview...you will get it. You might have to come on with the temp agency for the first 90 days at a certain rate, but if you're nailing the job...make sure to be honest that you'll expect $XX.XX/ hour if you're brought on full time.
My suggestion is you ALWAYS ask for $18/hour because that is the going rate on the majority of the clients
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at CompuCom in June 2009.
Interview Details – This was for a position working at Intel for Compucom systems. The interview did not consist of any written test or questions. The hiring manager simply looked over my resume and asked questions about my education and work experience. Some other simple questions about how I found out about the job and what I enjoyed doing. I received an offer within 2 hours of the interview.
Interview Question – How did you find out about this job? View Answer
Negotiation Details – I was not able to negotiate.
The process took 3 months - interviewed at CompuCom in May 2009.
Interview Details – Phone interviews or onsite interviews with 7 different people in the organization. Previously held similar position at company. Interviews began in February where I was told a decision would be made within a few weeks which turned into 3 months. Personal belief is that COO got involved and took the hiring process out of the Business Unit owners hands. Final interview was with COO himself. Business Unit manager was most non-communicative after first few weeks which led to my viewpoint. I had known and worked with many of the individuals I interviewed along the way and received very positive feedback regarding my candidacy being their personal choice.
