    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Salesforce.

    Interview Details

    The entire company and management team are skilled and knowledgeable. However, the interview process is extremely drawn out and convoluted.

    They stress that it should be your sole focus, that it's harder to get into than Harvard, and that they recommend not mentioning any other companies being interested in you. Seriously.

    They have a massive God complex when they introspectively view their company and hiring process. Be forewarned that you may be a fantastic professional but if one person thinks you won't be a fit "off dashboard" during the process, then you're s.o.l. my friend. This coming from someone who made it to the final presentation stage after 4 separate interviews in the process.

    Feeling somewhat relieved to have not gotten the position in what is sure to be a micromanagement environment.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Salesforce.

    Interview Details

    They invited me to their hiring event at a local restaurant popular with techies. They had a panel of Salesforce employees and senior management answering questions. Some of the engineers encouraged me to apply after hearing about my experience.

    A few weeks later, a recruiter contacted me who thought I was more qualified for a senior level position and set me up for an interview even though I never agreed to be interviewed for senior position.

    Interview Questions
    • During the interview the interviewer mentioned I had more experience as an Android Developer rather than a tester and she thought it would be best I would be considered for a developer role. Also she mentioned she was looking for someone with enough experience to put together a team.   Answer Question
