    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CDW (Herndon, VA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    I took an online assessment and sent in my resume. Then I had 2 phone interviews and a face-to-face interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CDW (Herndon, VA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Applied through university website and heard back in less than a week. Had one phone interview and a followup in person interview in the office. Whole process was very rushed, which did not make sense to me since the job doesn't start until July (I applied in January). Recruiter was very nice and helpful though.

    Account Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at CDW (Herndon, VA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was quite simple and quick but they definitely overpromised and under-delivered in many ways. Its very difficult to move up or around in the company (it takes years and many certifications). It also very difficult to have work/life balance, and a flexible schedule; they told me other wise at the beginning so it was very disappointing. Very stressful and very low starting salary. Also I was never told that the training requirement was 6 months of rigorous cold calling where they track your every call and phone time, so I really felt like the interview process was misleading. On top of that you will need to pass a test after working your butt off for 6 months (the test is a joke a measures nothing of importance to selling IT), you will not have a job if you don't pass.

    Interview

    Originally met them at our school's career fair. Was invited to apply online. Submitted application and completed personality assessment.

    Reasons for Declining

    They straight up said I wouldn't be able to afford to live where the office location was from my first-year compensation. Not exactly how I want to start my career.
