    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Auckland, Auckland (New Zealand)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Salesforce (Auckland, Auckland (New Zealand)) in April 2020.

    Interview

    1. Recruiter Phone Screen
    2. Hiring Manager meeting
    3. Manager + coworker meeting
    4. Pitch & presentation to panel

    The process became quite lengthy due to complications caused by Covid-19, but my contacts at Salesforce were excellent and worked hard to secure the earliest start date they could.

    Communication from everyone at Salesforce was quick and very professional.

    My prospective coworkers were incredibly generous with their time, and gave me honest and ope accounts of working for the NZ business.

    Program Architect Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (Atlanta, GA (US)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    This was second time I interviewed for the same position. 6 months back I was not selected, based on the last panel interview. I applied both times with Employee Referral , I believe the referral does matter to get you the interview call faster but does not factor in selection , which is totally based on your interview performance.

    Interview process - I got call from recruiter to discuss the process , my expectations etc. I was told that there will be 3 rounds of interviews - Technical 1:1 , consulting 1:1 and Panel presentation .
    The technical round was not tough(I was very well prepared) , questions were on in general software architecture, integration,enterprise architecture, middle-ware, software designs, etc. There were no Salesforce specific questions.
    After the first interview I was told that they would skip the second round and go for the panel interview presentation directly .
    Panel interview was 20 min of introduction and general questions, 20 mins of my presentation and Q&A, and 20 minutes for me to ask any questions.

    It's important that you plan your ppt to finish in time and leave enough time for questions (I did this mistake last time I interviewed). Questions were about the topic I presented.
    Couple of pointer I would note to include in your ppt-
    ppt has to have a right mix of Business and technical details.
    you should be able to explain the business case clearly
    you should be able to show the value the project added by solving the problem

    The process took 2 weeks, I had offer in had by the end of 2nd week and it was all remote .

    I wish you all good luck.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Salesforce in February 2020.

    Interview

    I originally applied for an Associate Solutions Engineer, Success Graduate position in the Public Sector through an employee referral but was let go after the final interview. Overall, the process was very positive, it just was not the right fit. My recruiter directed me to a different Associate Solutions Engineer, Success Graduate position in the commercial sector. This interview process went very smoothly. I was very prepared for the final interview and nailed it!

    Software Engineering Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA (US)) in April 2020.

    Interview

    I would be totally honest here. I would start by saying I love the Salesforce Recruiting team and especially, Ben Amerault. Ben played a very crucial & significant role in me getting the internship. So, the journey started with me getting in touch with Ben an year back. I was studying and had got in touch with Ben through an internal referral. I emailed him that I am looking for an Intern opportunity. He made me fill the required Intern Application on the portal and got me into the interviewing pipeline by sending me Hackerrank. The hackerrank went good for me and questions were average level. But after completing hackerrank, there wasn't much response back from Salesforce side, and I realized either all the positions have been filled or I messed up in my coding competition. I used to email Ben to give me an update and he would everytime be very informative, helpful & tell me where I stand in the pipeline and that the team is still looking for a team where my profile can match. Months passed by and I had literally given up any hope of interning at Salesforce for Summer 2020. Then one fine day, somewhere in April 2020, I emailed Ben that I would be really grateful if I could get an update whether I am moving forward and if not if he can consider me for full time opportunities for next year. Ben told me that all the positions had been filled and he appreciates me keeping in touch and he would surely hold onto my profile for full time positions. To be honest, I wasn't expecting a reply back since by this time Covid had caused lockdown and everyone was WFH and I wasn't sure if he would take out time to reply to my emails. After a few days from that email, I received an email from Ben regarding a newly opened opportunity and if I would be likely to be considered for it. I was so surprised and happy that Ben remembered me and reached out to me as soon as he got to know about this. I said Yes to that and he referred me to a different recruiter who handled my interviews for the team I am currently interning in. I thank my stars that I made it through the interviews and I got to intern with Salesforce. Now that I look back, the turning point for me to get this internship was, if Ben hadn't remembered to contact me, if Ben haven't been so kind to reply to my constant emails to him, whenever I asked for an update. I had applied to multiple companies but I never had such a personal interviewing experience with the recruiters replying to my emails, even when positions were filled and making sure to reach me when a new position opened up. I cannot express how grateful I am to Ben, Salesforce & Mulesoft for giving me this opportunity to intern. Thank you!!

    Four stages; including a screening interview with a Salesforce internal recruiter, hiring manager, incumbent for culture fit, and a personal presentation to a group/ panel of five. Due to COVID, the interview process was done entirely using video conferencing and took longer than it would have otherwise. Salesforce reps were good at managing my expectations through the longer than normal process.
