    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce in March 2019.

    Interview

    I applied online and a colleague who is currently employed at Salesforce passed my resume along to her RVP. I was contacted by a recruiter for an initial conversation about my background and overview of the role. Next, a Sr. Recruiter followed up to schedule a conversation with the RVP whose team I would potentially be on. From there, I met with three additional leaders, and then I was invited to present using a case study. This was by far the best recruitment process I have ever experienced. The recruiters were extremely responsive and I always knew where I was in the process and timeline for the next steps. Everything I have read about the culture of Salesforce came through during the recruitment process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce.

    Interview

    The process was great! I was recruited on LinkedIn. Upon acceptance of a conversation one was scheduled within a day. I loved that the recruiter gave all the numbers and benefits upfront so I could make an educated decision if it was a good fit for my expectations before starting the formal process. The week after I completed 4 phone interviews and then was invited onsite for a formal presentation which lasted about an hour. They gave a formal deck which I used little of because I wanted to focus on how I would really handle a discovery meeting. Overall great communication from the recruiting team and probably the best interview process I have been through.

    Interview Questions

    • They didn’t ask a ton of cheesy interview questions more of an open conversation through the whole process where they would ask follow up questions based on my experience and questions   Answer Question

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce.

    Interview

    Third time was a charm! I spoke with a recruiter who first indicated the position was filled, but would circulate my info if something opened up. I thought it was a brush off, but ended up speaking to two other recruiters. One of them out me in touch with the hiring manager and it went quickly from there.

    Interview

    Fairly quick, but thorough process that involved recruiter, Head of Global Sales, VP, Regional Director, and Head of Sales Engineering. Well organized and efficient process and the recruiter I was working with stayed in close contact with me every step of the way - even offering that I could text him anytime over the weekend and he would respond within an hour!
