    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.

    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.

    Account Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Word of caution: If you really want to work here, prepare beforehand! Don’t just wing it or you’ll be sorry. And yes, they do drug test, so stop smoking if that’s your thing.

    Now that you’ve been warned... here’s the skinny on the interview. So long as you prepare beforehand, the interview isn’t that difficult. Research the STAR method of answering questions and practice them a few times. You should be ok for the interview,

    It starts off with a recruiter that reaches out to you and discussed the role and interviews you for 45-60 mins. They’ll update you within 1-2 days whether you’re moving on. If you did, that same recruiter will give you interview feedback and you’ll discuss what vertical you’d like to work for. You’ll then have an in-person with most likely the manager that hires you. Again, the turnaround time here is 1-2 days as well.

    Nothing too complex... but do prepare yourself and lay off those drugs if you really want to work here.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CDW (Chicago, IL) in March 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was seamless but also very in-depth and strategic by the leadership at CDW. They were very thorough and looked for very specific, detailed answers and examples to their questions. There was nothing I would consider to be as "traditionally generic" from an interview question perspective asked by any of the leaders.
