    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (Hyderabad (India)) in October 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process has been very great. The interview consisted of following stages
    1. Hackerrank Test
    2. Two Video call interviews
    3. 4 Onsite rounds - Algorithm / Problem Solving - 2, System Design - 1, Learnability round - where you have to study a topic for about 1 hour and present to a panel.

    The interview process has been very well thought-out. Especially, the learnability round was my favorite.

    There is no point disclosing the questions. But, prepare well on all the data structures available and a few problem solving questions. For the system design, be prepared to know the depth of everything you 've built so far.
