Is the Salesforce.com/Force.com platform a "relational database"?

5 Answers

I think it falls under the object-relational umbrella. Sure it does relationships, but it does more than that, and with the abstraction of the API you never really get at the full relational structure of the underlying oracle DB. Less

Answer number four is good I accidentally marked it as a negative

Yes it is, the platform is built on top of an oracle relational database.

Why do you want to be a Technical Client Consultant and what is your career track plan?

2 Answers

At the time I responded at length in detail. Obviously, this is an important technical type of question where the company Regional Manager is attempting to source out your tactical and strategic plans for integrating your career motivations and expertise into a goal oriented success plan for your future starting years in the company. I stated why I valued this technically integrated role in engineering, consulting and sales over simply an engineering position at the time and why I thought my base experiences were the best for this job and where I saw myself in 5 years and how I would get there. I explained how I would excel at the first position I was starting in and how I would make it to the next position I desired at a higher management level in the company within a dynamic window of time. Less

Answer is too focused on you. Should turn it around to indicate what benefit there is to the company with YOU being the Technical Client Consultant and indicate how they, being as wonderful as they are, are important for your growth. Less

Teradata

Write a program to output all the unique combinations of a string of non-repeating alphabetic characters.

2 Answers

This is a little tricky as it requires a recursive function. To sniff out the pattern just write out a sample set of combinations. My biggest problem with it was that whether and how quickly I got the answer has little to no bearing on how I would handle the real day-to-day responsibilities of the job. It's ridiculous. Nobody codes low-level crap like that anymore anyway. Just go find it online, why re-invent the wheel. If he had asked me, I could have explained how I solved a real problem for a real client writing code to create baseball schedules that simultaneously meet nine conflicting and ranked criteria. Less

In these sorts of interviews you really need to drill down and understand what the interviewer is looking for. A good way to simulate a real interview experience is to do a mock with one of the Teradata Senior Technical Consultant experts on Prepfully, rated super strongly on TrustPilot... prepfully.com/practice-interviews Less
