    Web Design Specialist Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at CDK Global (Detroit, MI) in April 2017.

    Interview

    A CDK HR recruiter contacted me by email and by phone about this opportunity. I first had a phone conversation with the recruiter. Second they give you a test to do which is giving them three samples of work. 1. Create a HTML and CSS staff page with a second requirement of a drop down navigation. 2. Develop and design a marketing campaign for an automotive dealer in various ad sizes. 3. Write a program in JavaScript/jQuery working with numbers. You are required to get all that back to them in a relatively short time. Thirdly if you pass the test they invite you in for a face to face interview with two managers. When you first arrive they have you sit with an employee who is currently doing this job to get a feel for the work you would be doing. They explain that you are assigned around 13 to 14 queue tasks a day. You are to spend no more than 30 minutes on each. Then you have the interview. This is a young culture at this location. I did not see diversity in age.

    Digital Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at CDK Global (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    First, I was approached by an in-house recruiter via LinkedIn. I provided my salary requirements and resume and never heard back.

    Later I was contacted by a third-party recruiter, also via LinkedIn, and invited for a phone screen.

    The phone screen was very typical, but more campaign/example-based than most screens are. There were questions about tools used, etc.

    When it came down to discussion of compensation at the end of the discussion, it turned out they were looking to pay half of what I was looking for--and it was also an amount far below the market-rate for my level of experience. I politely declined to talk further.

    HR called up to talk about the general stuff like salary expectations and ask to rate myself in each of the technologies. SQL, Angular, .NET, MVC. He then pushed me a little to choose an earlier date for the technical interview, where I asked him for extra time. I took the interview on the date he suggested. Had the technical interview with a project manager. She asked me general technical questions.

    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at CDK Global (Seattle, WA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    No matter how nice and knowledgeable recruiter sounds if he tells you they are paying below market rate do not go further. Anyway, I agreed to phone screen. The interviewer was over 30 minutes late. I am not a native speaker myself but when on the other side there is a person who speaks worse than me it would not end very well. After half an hour of a pep talk, I got one of this puzzles from interview books to solve. I haven't seen this one before so definitely, my solution was not great.

    PowerSEO Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CDK Global (Detroit, MI) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed for a PowerSEO / SEO Specialist II position at the Detroit office. I went through a recruiting agency. The experience at CDK seemed good - I enjoyed meeting the staff there and they seemed like great people to work with. However, I ended up turning it down due to lack of information on both ends. The recruiter never gave me benefits information for CDK Global. I got mixed answers about benefits and coverage. They also came back with more money when I declined, making me think they could've paid me a lot more. I believe that insurance is not great and you have to pay for parking. CDK Global only offers two work-from-home days per month after 6 months of employment (they thought, no one was sure) and with my schedule and the fact that SEO can be done independently and totally online I thought this was ridiculous. When I added up communing, paying for parking, uncertain benefits and uncertain pay it seemed like a bad strategic move.
