    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA (US)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very well organized and the interview coordinator were in constant contact throughout the process of booking my flights, hotel and getting to the interview. After the interview they made an informal offer the next day and a formal offer letter a few days later.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA (US)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The position I interviewed for was C++ specific, although the job will require some iOS, Android and Windows specific stuff as well.

    Interview over the phone first. Very friendly and nice chat, no technical questions during that.

    Second part was programming test. I spent several hours implementing a C++ program that did a lot of things with data structures, JSON, threading, etc. They liked this enough to fly me out to San Francisco.

    Third part of the interview was a day long process where I met with several managers and teams where I chatted and answered multiple technical questions and did a few basic coding exercises. They liked me well enough to offer me the job :)

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA (US)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Overall the experience was great. Everyone on the team was very nice and seemed generally smart.

    I had one interview that was a little at odds with the type of interview one would generally expect for this role, but it was constructive nonetheless.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Mateo, CA (US)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was the standard software engineer interview. Recruiters don't follow up. I reached out to see if there was any feedback after a week. Recruiter said he was still gathering the feedback from the team and that he would get back to me later the same day. Well...that was over 2 weeks ago and still no response. It's pretty lame and reflects poorly on the company. I wouldn't want to work for such an unresponsive company.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA (US)) in December 2012.

    Interview

    Contacted via a internal contact. Phone screen with Hiring manger on basic interview and technical questions followed by a two hour programming test. Passed with flying colors and was invited to San Francisco to interview with 10+ people. Some interviewers were in town, some were remote so we had conference calls. Overall, it was your typical tech interview.

    Interview Questions

    • It depends on who you're interviewing with. For me there's nothing really difficult.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The recruiter low-balled me quite a bit, actually she began with an unreasonable base salary. I had to negotiate pretty hard. Even then I didn't get what I was expecting.

    The first round was more of an intro where I was called to know my projects, likings, skills, position details and some selling by the interviewer. Later I went through a Remote Programming Test. Then I was called for onsite interview. On this day, I went through various rounds which involved test strategy, problem solving and coding and some designing.

    Interview

    The best interview process I have ever had. The recruiters were very responsive and the interviewers were great. First I had a phone screen with one of the directors followed by a remote programming test which was very interesting to solve. This was followed by four onsite interviews which included programming and questions on past experience and some questions on testing.
