    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at CDK Global (Hoffman Estates, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I had an initial phone interview which I was told was the most important. In my in person interview, almost all of the managers were in the room and asking questions. Felt very intense, but they were all very nice.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CDK Global (Seattle, WA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I didn't make it far into the interview process. I was contacted by a corporate recruiter and the 1st question I was asked after "How are you?" was "What is your current salary" followed by "What do you want to make?"

    I don't know about anyone else but I find this very off-putting and frankly rude. I've been asked this question before but maybe towards the end of an interview or at some other point in the interview process. To be asked this question as the 1st question is to me a red flag. It shows the company really isn't interested in hiring quality people. They are only interested in finding someone who is willing to work for a lower wage than they are worth. They immediately want to remove any negotiating power from their candidates.

    I only made it a couple of more questions into the interview until the recruiter accused me of wasting her time because I didn't match the job description / wishlist 100%.

    I don't expect I will be hearing back from CDK Global.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at CDK Global (Seattle, WA) in September 2010.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen was about :30. I was invited for an on-site interview later that week. I then had 2 separate 2 hour sessions. Each session was with a set of 2 UI developers, who asked a load of questions about HTML/CSS/JS and had me work some problems out on the whiteboard. Had lunch with senior managers which focused on experience, direction, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to create a simple API using OOP Javascript, and then we extended it out to add functionality and options without changing the initial API.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Simple ... the initial offer was actually more than I'd expected, so it was an easy accept on my end.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at CDK Global (Seattle, WA) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I met some Cobalt employees at a College Career Fair, then I believe I had a brief (30mins or 1hr) interview with them on campus and was invited on-site for technical interviews. At the career fair, one would typically drop off their resume and hope to hear back, however they liked mine so much I scheduled my on campus interview right there. Between the initial interview and the technical interviews the recruiter was constantly in touch with me. I had two technical interviews on-site, each an hour long and each with two software engineers.

    The interview process was typical, so if you're preparing for other technical interviews then you probably won't need to go out of your way to prepare for Cobalt's interviews. The hiring process however, was a bit frustrating. The pre-employment drug screening and background check seemed excessive compared to other software companies in the same geographic market, however now that I've started work, I'm very happy to be here.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical software engineering interview questions. If you paid attention in school and prepare for the interviews by practicing coding questions online, you will be fine.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The application asked what my desired salary was, so I listed it and when I was offered the job, the base salary was exactly what I'd asked for. I was happy with the amount so did not attempt to negotiate.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CDK Global (Seattle, WA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Was contacted by a recruiter. Two phone interviews prior to on-site. Phone interviews were about background, motivation, coding skills (coding exercise) and design. No algorithm questions. On-site was mainly on design, coding, background. Pretty positive overall. However the offer was not appealing but overall comp @Cobalt is low. Take it or leave it type of deal.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Difficult to negotiate. Felt like take it or leave it type of deal. Advice would be to be persistent in negotiating.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CDK Global (Seattle, WA) in March 2010.

    Interview

    Its HR called me first for very basic info, then inviting me for a person2person interview. each of 2 team leaders spent less than 30 minutes asking narrow focused and trivial questions, and gave out the impression that they were hiring a lot and with a broad spectrum of various jobs. In short, almost sounds too good to be true. Then never heard back from them again.
