    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce in March 2017.

    Interview

    Overall it was a great experience. Everyone was very excited to both be interviewing me and speaking about a company their loved. Each person had their own perspective on what made Salesforce so great which I appreciated. Overall I had about 5 interviews both phone and Skype with a final case study panel.I would say it was difficult because the interviews were back-to-back so it was a lot juggling my life and an interview process that took about a month. Still the recruiting coordinators are great about being responsive with where you are in the process.

    Associate Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (Atlanta, GA (US)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I attended a non-technical interview with the manager and one team member, though for a different role. That consisted of questions related to my professional background and problem-solving thought process. I was invited back for a second interview for this role that was a technical interview with two senior developers, followed by lunch with the manager. This process was followed by a phone call with the recruiter who shared the offer with me.

    Salesforce is very adamant about learning about the whole person they are interviewing. They want to know about some of your personal and professional goals as well as how you see yourself impacting your community through service.
