    Customer Solutions Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vernon Hills, IL
    No Offer
    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 through other source. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at CDW (Vernon Hills, IL) in August 2010.

    Interview

    The interview process was a little long they could have had more group /panel folks versus individual interviews initially. After the lengthy interview process I was roped along only to find out that i had to inquire that the position was given to someone who was promoted from within. The common courtesy is to let your candidates know that the position was filled ....

    Supply Chain Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at CDW (Vernon Hills, IL) in October 2011.

    Interview

    Applied on CDW's website, received a phone call the next day from CDW's recruiter. Consisted of a brief phone interview, basically screening me to see if I'd be a good fit for the position. Went into CDW the next day for a face to face interview with the hiring manager and an associate. Was very laid back. Both parties seemed very nice and knew what they were looking for. Received a phone call two hours later extending an offer. Was honestly the quickest interview process I've ever been through. The recruiter even said that this was extremely fast and was very surprised how quickly it went.

    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.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't think you have strong enough technical background to do this job. Am I correct? (This after I was told by the HR representative and the hiring manager that a technical background was not what the position required.)   Answer Question

    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.
