    Contract Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Edwardsville, IL

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at World Wide Technology (Edwardsville, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Relaxed, but straightforward. Had a ohone interview with HR and then a 1:1 interview with HR. Then had 2 interviews for 2 different positions with multiple Material Operations Managers. Over all is was good. A little disorganized once it got beyond the HR side, but a good experience overall.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at World Wide Technology.

    Interview

    Slow and cumbersome. I had two interviews with HR, followed up by several panel and paired interviews with different supervisors. All told I think I interviewed about seven times. Each interview asked me the same questions, with little variety - could really have been one big group. Didn't hear back form company for about a month, then got an offer out of the blue with a start date request in a week.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at World Wide Technology.

    Interview

    There were 5 total interviews. 3 with management, 2 with technical, senior level engineers. There were extremely detailed questions for all interviews. It was a pretty straightforward process, and they made sure to respect the "call me in these hours" time frame that I had to give them because I was still with my at the time current employer.

    Interview Questions

    • It was a very technical interview. I believe the most difficult question I was asked was something about how to setup an IPSEC tunnel on a Cisco ISR.   1 Answer

Be able to think outside of the box and be able to think through a problem. If you don't know the answer to something say that you don't know and don't try to fake it because the person conducting the interview knows the answer. Be skillful in mapping technology to business requirements. Do have lots of experience in front of the customer and a full understanding of the sales cycle. Bring your A game and your most personable personality.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at World Wide Technology (Saint Louis, MO) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I really liked the company's core values, so I decided to submit my resume for a position. I applied online and received a call from a recruiter a week later. He asked some questions about my resume and a couple of behavioral questions. I had an onsite interview with two managers approximately 10 days after the initial phone interview. I thought that the interview went well. The only surprise was that I got cornered on exactly what my salary expectations were. I wasn't expecting that since I was required to list my current salary on the application. If I had to guess, I'd say that either my salary requirements or my overly verbose thank you email kept me from moving forward in the process. Given the reputation of the company, I was really surprised that they never notified me after the interview whether I got the job or not. Yes, after awhile you figure you didn't get it, but I have never interviewed at a company where they didn't follow up.
