    Customer Solutions Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CDW (Vernon Hills, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Had a friend who worked at CDW said it was a great company and even gave me a referral. I applied and was contacted for a phone interview shortly after. The phone interview was simple enough, basic questions on my strengths/weaknesses what I wanted to achieve for the future. A week later I was invited to an in-person interview with the Senior Manager of Customer Relations. The interview was pretty simple, fairly easy behavioral and experience questions. About another week after, I got a call from a second round interview, where they had me do a quick proficiency test on their claims system. overall a fairly easy process but in the end they went with a more experienced candidate.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CDW (Vernon Hills, IL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    HR phone screen for 30 minutes. HR phone interview with hiring manager for 30 minutes. Called to headquarters to interview with three members of the corporate communications team, including the hiring manager. One interviewer received a call from one of her kids and she moved to turn off the phone, but the hiring manager urged her to take it, saying, "Remember--family before work." It wasn't a display on my behalf, since the mom obviously felt badly that she hadn't turned off her phone. I don't have dependents anymore, but made a solid impression on me. In fact, the entire team made an great case for success through collaboration.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at CDW (Vernon Hills, IL) in February 2011.

    Interview

    The process up to meeting with the hiring supervisor went pretty smoothly. An HR phone interview and then I met with the team in person, which also went well. When I showed up for the F2F meeting, the hiring director was in the wrong location (downtown while I was in the suburbs). Took a while to reschedule due to her schedule and when we finally met, it did not go well.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at CDW (Vernon Hills, IL) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I had 2 phone interviews and five face to face meetings. Two with the hiring manager and three with members of the hiring manager's team. The people who I met with were professional. The work environment very energetic. The only challenge I had was that there seemed to be some confusion about the type of candidate they were looking for.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CDW (Vernon Hills, IL) in January 2011.

    Interview

    I was presented with an itinerary with meeting times for multiple members of the IT team. One of the engineers did not show up until the first phase was half over. Another engineers took half of the first phase checking and replying to e-mails on his Blackberry. His attention was obviously occupied by his Blackberry because he was oblivious to the fact that he was repeating questions. The second phase was with the manager of the engineering team. The manager was obviously very ill with some sort of cold or bronchitis and could barely speak but was very thorough in her questioning of technical, organizational, and behavioral aspects. During the third phase, the senior manager was very condescending and made it a point for me to know that I was wasting his time.

    24 hours after the interview, I withdrew my candidacy.
