    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Salesforce (London, England) in June 2020.

    Interview

    From beginning to end I thought the interview process was slick and enjoyable. Everyone was well prepared and the conversations were well structured. The process took place during the C-19 lock down so we used Google Hang Outs and conference calls.

    Principal Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (Fort Lauderdale, FL (US)) in June 2020.

    Interview

    Fast and efficient. From job posting to offer was less than 30 days. Recruiter was kind and provided good guidance throughout the process. They certainly have given much thought to assessing candidates and matching skills to persona. Presentation guidance was a bit askance; however, the trailheads provided great self-paced training.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (Chicago, IL (US)) in June 2020.

    Salesforce provided tons of resources to set me up for success - I almost over prepared because I wanted to learn everything they sent my way! Due to Covid it was virtual but the recruiter & team made me feel very comfortable via Google Hangout.

    Program Architect Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL (US)

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I got connected with the recruiter through the referral. The process was really smooth and I haven't seen such a great recruiter. My recruiter was one of the best recruiters I have ever worked in my entire career. The overall team was very friendly and welcoming. I had forst round of technical interviews with on the senior Architect. It was a video call, the interviewer was not able to turn on his camera but he informed me in the beginning and it was fine. It was not related to Salesforce Architecture it was more generic technical interview. He primarily asked things related to the Integration, web services, Networking, Enterprise Architecture.
    Second round was my panel interview with 3 directors, it was a split with 20 minutes of the initial introductions and Q/A followed by upto 20 mins of panel presentation. This presentation was mainly to understand your executive presence and how you map projects with business values. It is supposed to be an executive presentation with overview but they do expect you to showcase some level of architecture and processes. Followed by the presentation they will ask you questions and also expect to ask any questions about the role and the team which is usual.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce in April 2020.

    Interview

    From the initial Recruiter briefing, through the next three rounds of interviews, including a panel presentation, the process was very clear and transparent. The recruitment team were always on hand to answer any additional questions I had outside of the formal interview process and extremely punctual in responding and providing post interview feedback. In total i went through three rounds of interviews post the HR briefing. This included a presentation I had to deliver to a panel of four on a brief provided by SF HR.
