    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA (US)) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through internal referral program. Four steps involved in the interview process: phone call screen from hiring manager, 2hrs remote technical test, two on-site interviews( from two different teams). Overall, all the interviewers are well nice, knowledgeable, and response is very quick after interviews. Recruiters are very kind, and they will try to help you position to other teams if the feedback is positive from interview but the team gets better candidate.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA (US)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Got a call from recruiter. She explained the role, the team for which the position was open for and asked some questions about my skill sets. She then scheduled a telephonic interview.
    The phone interview was on my current role, some design questions and some basic technical questions. He also explained their team roaster, modules on which they work on. I got an update after two days.

    Next was remote programming round. I was given a problem statement and two hours to solve that problem. The coordinator explained the criteria that they would use to evaluate the solution. They look for use of proper design pattern, data structures, scaling, efficiency, completeness, etc. At the end of the test, the coordinator discussed the solution and asked what else I could done if I had some more time.

    Next one was a on-site round. There was multiple rounds covering various aspects like coding, design, quality, scalability. The overall difficulty level was medium. Last one was the lunch/personal round where they gave me sufficient tiem to ask any question, understand my interest, why salesforce etc. Overall, it was a very good discussion.

    The overall coordination from recruiter was very good. I can definitely say that it was one of the best interview experience I had so far.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Salesforce (Hillsboro, OR (US)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    There were a couple of phone screens prior to scheduling an on-site interview. Each conversation went really well and comprised of a mix of personality, skills, philosophy questions and really felt like an informal getting to know you discussion, both in phone screens and the on-site group/panel interviews. Everyone was super friendly and asked thoughtful questions. I never once felt like someone was trying to surprise me with trick questions. I think the most awkward part of the entire process was the long wait between talks.
