Program Manager Interview

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

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA (US)) in June 2016.

Interview

The interview stages included: a video chat with the hiring manager; a half day with 3 1:1 team interviews; a phone call with the recruiter; another half day that included delivering a mini-training to the team, Q&A, and 1:1 interviews with the remaining team members; and a phone call with the hiring manager. While the process took a while to get through, it all moved pretty quickly and the recruiter was great about keeping me in the loop along the way, checking in, and being available for any questions. Everyone I met was on time, welcoming, and personable.

Interview Questions

  • Interview questions were pretty standard, and consisted mostly of behavioral, past experience, and work style questions.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce in September 2014.

    Interview

    A recruiter contacted me via email about a friend submitting my resume/CV internally through the system. We set up a 30 minute block later that week to discuss. Unfortunately, the interview started late and we did not have the full half hour as I had a hard stop. She indicated that the process would be quick and she could get back to me either later that day or early next week. I sent the standard thank you the day of and restated the date she expected feedback. I sent a follow up the next week after I failed to receive any communication. She replied and said she would get a response by the end of the week. That passed and I did not get a note or any other response back. I can only assume this means I was not selected but closure would have been appreciated.
