    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.

    Interview

    After months of applying online and a strong internal recommendation, I was never granted even a phone interview. I meet all the requirements for the position, which ironically is still posted as active. Very unprofessional recruiters.

    Account Advocate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at CDK Global (Detroit, MI).

    Interview

    Recruiter contacted me through a phone call for a phone screen and set up the interview. Interview started late, even though I got there early. Was asked a lot of basic employment and educational history questions. I was very well qualified for the job (which is basic telephone based client care from what I could tell) so they were pretty easy. One interviewer said that had been there for a little over a year and the other less than a year which I found strange as they were supposedly "team leaders". Also stranger, as I walked out I realized I hadn't seen any other men working here and the office was filled with women who all looked like they were in their mid 20's.
    Got a generic email from the recruiter a couple weeks later saying I wasn't really qualified. A day later I saw the same position I had just applied for posted on their site. Guess I didn't fit their ideal employee mold, as I'm not a 20 something blonde...

    Full Stack Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    This was at the CVR division in Orange, CA..

    Was asked contrived interview questions by half of the people on the panel. Average tenure for each team member is 4-7 years. Interview questions asked were not related to the listed job description. No questions asked were rooted in Computer Science i.e. data structures or algorithms. Leadership was not very technical.

    Unfortunate that the interview panel couldn't create their own actual questions. They regurgitated questions from someone's else's book (Cracking the Coding Interview) directly. These signals let me know the true caliber of the team. I'm grateful for this since it lets me know that I should stay away from this team at CDK Global.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked me question 1.8 out of the book Cracking the Coding Interview (5th edition).

      Assume you have a method isSubstring which checks if one word is a
      substring of another. Given two strings, si and s2, write code to check if s2 is
      a rotation of si using only one call to isSubstring

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CDK Global (Chicago, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied to both online and through a campus career fair. Met and spoke with current Software Engineers about the position. Scheduled an on campus interview the following week. The on campus interview was with two Software Engineers that asked behavioral questions to get to know you, and to give you more information on the company and the position. They asked questions related to your resume. Was not considered for the next interviews. Upon questioning why, they did not respond. Poor communication.
