    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce in October 2018.

    Interview

    The process was simple and moved at a steady pace. I applied online and a talent scout contacted me within 2 days to set up a phone interview for the next week - pretty standard questions. I had a coaching call with the same talent scout before my final round interview. The interview was very similar to the phone interview. I was offered the job 2 hours after my final interview. Overall, the entire process took about 4 weeks from application to job offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce in September 2018.

    Interview

    I had a great experience interviewing with Salesforce. The process was quick (2 weeks) and the recruiters were transparent with expectations and timelines. My interviews were always a mix of challenging / thought provoking questions but also questions that let the recruiters get more insight into who I was as a person outside of the role.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (Atlanta, GA (US)) in April 2018.

    Interview

    Super smooth and welcoming. I interviewed over the phone with a Futureforce Talent Scout who was really interested in getting know me, having a genuine conversation, but also interested in what I understood and specifically knew about Salesforce as a company. After my phone interview, I was set up with a virtual interview via Skype. I interviewed with two managers who made me feel comfortable and as if Salesforce is exactly where I am meant to be. I was very prepared for my interview, so I had answers ready for personality-related questions, as well as Salesforce-related questions. I received an offer just a few days after this interview.

    Business Development Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Salesforce in May 2018.

    Interview

    There were multiple rounds in the application process. The first two interviews were done by the HR Team and mostly focused on personal motivation to work in sales and at Salesforce. I was asked about my CV (quick summary) and what I know about Salesforce.

    The third interview was with the Hiring Manager. This one went more into detail about my past internships in sales. Questions on what I would do in certain situations and how I would react.

    The fourth interview was a presentation of a business case. You get the business case roughly a week before the interview and you have to basically pitch Salesforce as a solution to the client. I had two people in my panel. My hiring manager and another person from HR.

    The fourth interview was with a different team lead. This interview was mostly focused on personal fit and my motivation. What kind of person I am, etc...

    All in all the interviews were extremely pleasant and well done. I always felt comfortable during all conversations.

    ** Unfortunately one of the recruiters took almost 2 months to give me feedback between the 2nd and 3rd interview. I hope this was just an exemption to the rule. Beides that the interview process was well done. **

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)).

    Interview

    Amazing interview process all round. From start to finish. Started with a call with Pippa Haggart, really relaxed, but good interview. Then video interview with soon to be manager. Was quite tough and was surprised to be passed to the next stage.

    Final stage was group assessment centre. Split the day up into a business case and three back to back interviews on business acumen culture and future at the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Salesforce (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in July 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was very relaxed and they didn't make you feel like you are being interviewed. You feel very comfortable. The first stages were over the phone/video call and then the third stage was the assessment day. The assessment day consisted of several interviews and one presentation on a case study you could prepare ahead of time. Unfortunately, I didn't get the job although I felt like I did great on the interview.
