    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CDW (Chicago, IL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was rigorous but well thought out and efficient. It is clear they have their act together. My recruiter worked with me from the beginning to the end and made sure I was well prepared for the in person interviews.

    The process was basically two phone interviews, and then an onsite tour followed by an interview with my future manager. I found out the same day that I interviewed in person that I got the position.

    There was a LOT of behavioral interviewing-IE-When is a time you've been in X situation and how did you handle it. This occurred in both the phone interviews and the in person interview with the manager.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There isn't really any-everyone's base is the same and it's just a matter of what your commissions will be like based on your own effort-so I wouldn't even try negotiating.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CDW (Chicago, IL) in December 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was really thought through. They ask a lot of behavioral questions and if you have experience, you’ll be able to answer them easily. Take your time in describing the situation and how you handled it. This company does a great job on following you through every step. They had someone talk to me before the interviews and throughout the entire process and it just shows how much they care about the people they hire. I had a phone interview then one with a manager and got hired not shortly after.

    Accounts Receivable Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CDW.

    Interview

    35 minute phone interview with HR; in person interview with two A/R supervisors scheduled for the following week. In person lasted about an hour 15 and felt positive. I was well qualified for the position but I know there are many reasons offers are not extended. As it has been 7 business days since the interview with no contact, it is my assumption I didn't get the job. I do find it surprising that a company as large as this does not even send an auto-generated rejection email. It's a poor way to treat people and I expected them to show more professionalism.

    Interview Questions

    • Why CDW? Tell me about yourself. Tell me about a time you had to make a decision without consulting your supervisor. What would your boss say about you? What are your strengths and weaknesses? As I knew their questions would be behavioral, I was prepared.   Answer Question
