    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (Melbourne (Australia)) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Quick - there wasn't weeks between interviews, everything happened quickly and smoothly
    Informative - HR representatives and hiring manager were provided a lot of information about the hiring process and what each interview would entail. They answered any questions I had very promptly
    Mock email and call - the tasks set for the final portion of the interview process were organised and challenging to a degree - but in a good way. They really test you to make sure you're the right fit
