Easy Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CDW

Interview

The process was very long for this level of position (6 calls total: recruiter, video recorded, technical, manager, different manager, and final technical) A lot of the standard non-technical interview questions regarding teamwork, conflict resolution, and scenario-based issues. 1st round technical interview questions were very easy and just involved basic troubleshooting skills of common technical problems. My final round technical questions delved deeper into my technical specialty though.

Interview Questions
  • Tell me about a conflict or problem you had with a teammate or superior and how did you resolve it?

The process was pretty extensive. I have 3 interviews. I believe it's pretty long and the interviews are almost asking the same questions. The first was over the phone, then zoom and then in person.

Interview

I went through 3 interviews, had great communication and then after the last one I never heard anything back. I followed up with 2 emails and again never heard back.

Interview Questions
  • Normal questions of being able to use software, though it was weird to be asked about QuickBooks skills for a position outside of accounting.

Interview process consisted of many prep calls and 3 formal interviews. Didn't get the job. They never really directly told me why. It was a simple interview process. I had to do HireVue.

Interview

The interview process was clear and straightforward with a few rounds of asynchronous video interviews before a live phone interview. Some of what was in the description of the job was different than what they had explained would be the commitment and responsibilities during the interview.

Interview Questions
  • What was a time you disagreed with someone on a project, and how did you handle it?

Average Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CDW

Interview

Quite straightforward: Initial phone interview, followed by an e-meeting with the hiring manager, then a writing sample, and finally an interview with the hiring manager's manager. I was able to attain a referral ahead of the interviewing process, so that likely made things different, BUT you can never be certain. I say this because I was offered after submitting a writing sample, effectively skipping a step that I was told would come. I have previous proposal experience, so when I went all-out on making my writing sample, I made sure it looked truly like a B2B deliverable that could be sent to a client. I incorporated information from the website regarding solutions for the issues faced by the fictitious sample company - even though I have not IT experience - and came up with a fake quote to incorporate as well. When I received an unscheduled call back for what I thought would be arranging a final interview, I received a verbal offer. This was MY experience, but like I said I had a referral. Everyone was incredibly kind, fair, and professional, and CERTAINLY represented the what it is like to work for CDW, as I have been on the job for months now. The only difference is that people are warmer now that I am on the team. If there is a message here, it is this: Your interview experience is quite representative of the company. I have experienced a range of work settings (from corporate, to hospitality, to film production) that included loads of nonsense, toxicity, and unprofessionalism. I went looking for the opposite of all of that, benefits, and the chance to attain work-life balance - I found it in CDW.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at CDW in Jul 2022

Interview

phone screen w HR recorded video answers excel test 1 hr with 2 managers 30 min with 1 manager Overall the process was smooth but took a long time to go through all of the steps. I also felt as though I didn't get to ask any questions myself until the very end of the process to determine if this was really something that would be a good fit for me too. I received an offer two days after the final interview.
