Interview

Starts with Hirevue interview answering pre-recorded questions online, then had phone interview with HR and manager. The process itself was smooth and the questions straightforward "tell me about a time..," behavioral questions. However, when my turn came to ask questions I was disappointed that some of the answers I got were fairly weak. I'm currently waiting to hear back but this is the main thing that has me on the fence. Using an asynchronous online interviewing platform has positives and negatives but since those platforms don't allow a candidate to ask any questions (or get feedback) it's particularly important that recruiters are prepared to give answers in one on one interviews.

HR screen followed by an interview with the managers. Asked about past experiences working with teams and prioritizing tasks. Everyone was friendly and receptive to my questions. However, I was ghosted and never heard back from the recruiters even after I followed up several times.

Interview

Two interviews in total one with HR Manager and one with the hiring manager. The first interview threw me off since they asked job related questions specific to the role. I believe the first question was how have you used data to make a decision. The second one was what I expected a lot of tell about a time xxx.

Interview Questions
  • How did you use data to make a decision? How would you handle a conflict with your manager? How would you prioritize multiple projects?

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at CDW (Toronto, ON) in May 2021

Interview

It was a standard process of 3 rounds - HR, Manager, Director level. All of them seemed courteous and polite. The work culture seemed to be dynamic and fast-paced as per our conversations. Because of some recent mergers and acquisitions, the teams had expanded and this position opened up. IMO, There seemed to be lots of work but possibly less time to finish it - leading to a very fast-paced workplace and possibly less work-life balance. HR was very friendly and 'in-touch' throughout the process. However, I haven't heard back from HR after all the rounds were completed.

Interview Questions
  • I had applied for the job online when I found it on LinkedIn. After 2 weeks, HR reached out to me over email to schedule the 1st interview. 1st round with HR (15-20mins) - Didn't ask any questions per se. Just had a conversation about the role - why it's open, what's expected of the person hired in the long run, and what the next steps would be. They just asked for salary expectations at the end. We set up a time for the next round for the same week.
  • 2nd round with direct manager (30 mins) - Tell me about yourself. Why this role? Why this company? Why do you want to leave your current job? Your past job was a little different, how would you bridge the gap to this role? CDW's 3 pillars are Cyber Security, Cloud and Infra - are you okay with these? Do you have experience in handling vendors? Do you have experience in SEO? If we hire an outside agency for SEO, how would you approach it? What team sizes have you worked with in the past? How comfortable are you with uncertainty and processes that are not established yet? Where do you see yourself 5 years from now? HR called me the very next day to tell me I was selected for the next round.
  • 3rd and final round with Director (30 mins) - Tell me about yourself. Why CDW? How would you communicate with our clients to have them on board? How would you communicate with our clients - why they should choose CDW over our competitors? How would you engage with the internal stakeholders? How would you bridge the gap from your current position to this role?

I applied through an employee referral The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CDW (Toronto, ON) in May 2021

Interview

Interview process was a pre-call with the senior recruiter for 20 min. Regular profile related questions. Second interview was for an hour with hiring manager and the team lead. Questions were very general and encouraging. The atmosphere was very friendly and comfortable, asked questions related to the role and were interested in the results achieved. Not allot of technical questions, probably because of my background and experience, the interview was more focused to what to management want to achieve and my role would be. Overall very happy.

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at CDW (Hartford, CT) in Apr 2021

Interview

Contacted by 3rd party recruiter. Good fit by desciption. Clearly stated my comp requirements. Was moved to interview with the hiring manager. Great interview. Later learned that my comp requirements were way off from what they were looking to spend. Kind of a waste of my time and the hiring manager's time too.

Interview Questions
  • Mostly get to know me interview. Asked about the work I did at two of the vendors who's products I would be representing here. Also asked about sales approach and strategy. And my preferences around being on customer site.
  • What relationships have I developed outside of IT?

I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at CDW (Calgary, AB) in Apr 2021

Interview

7 typical behavioral question over automated video, you get 3 attempts to record your answer. Next interview is with the recruiter. I turned it down because the pay range was significantly below market rate and doesn't seem to get much better with progression. On target commission wasn't competitive either. Training process sounds much longer than other similar tech resellers. The interview process felt transactional.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me a time when.... You had to deal with conflict with a colleague.
