Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Un deuxième plus porté métier/compétences avec un Manager (45min-1h)
Un troisième : le fameux PANEL ou Business Case (1h30)

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (Chicago, IL (US)).

    Interview

    The interview process was not well done. My recruiter had two emails that were riddled with spelling errors and wasn’t very clear about next steps throughout the process. I interviewed with five managers - after taking three days off of work - and I was told that I was a strong candidate by all five hiring managers. I didn’t get an offer and my recruiter ghosted me when I asked for feedback. For being an industry leader in customer relationship management, it doesn’t seem like Salesforce has any respect for the people they interview. I felt like I was simply discarded after three weeks.

    Interview

    The thing I appreciated most is that they were respectful of my time. The interview process was really...enjoyable. There was the initial conversation with the recruiter and then the interview with managers and peers. The recruiter I worked with was AMAZING. She helped prepare me for the interview. They got back to me with their decision within 2 days. Best interview process I went through.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (Ashburn, VA (US)) in March 2020.

    Interview

    The hiring and interview process was organized and they were clear at every stage about next steps. They ask questions that ensure that you did your homework prior to the interview. First interview was a 30 minute phone interview with the SDR manager. The second interview was 30 minutes with a Business Development Rep Manager. The last interview was three back to back 30 minute time slots with three different managers. The recruiter Anthony was very responsive and helpful throughout the whole process and answered all of my questions promptly.

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (Chicago, IL (US)) in March 2020.

    Submitted application on Workday, had a conversation with a recruiter, then got my final interview scheduled with three managers.

The actual interview was 45 minutes long and I was asked questions for about 35 minutes by all three managers before I asked my questions/closed.

    • Tell us about yourself. Why Salesforce? Tell us about one of your role models and why. If you were CEO of your last company and could change one thing, what would that be? If this doesn't work out, what would your backup plan be? Are you the smartest person in the room or hardest worker?   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Salesforce (Chicago, IL (US)) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Let me start by saying my recruiter went above and beyond for me! I’m so thankful for him! I applied and was contacted within 24 hours. Had a phone screen going over my experience, why Salesforce? Etc.

    Moved on to a virtual interview with 1 SDR & 3 managers. The chat with the SDR went really well. It was very conversational with some questions sprinkled in to get to know me better. I got lots of great insight and could tell she truly had a passion for the company and her role.

    Managers moved at a great pace with behavioral questions and it was more than just that - I could tell they truly wanted to be sure I was a great culture fit as well. They were all EXTREMELY kind and professional.

    Received an offer 24 hours later.

    Overall, the entire process took less than 2 weeks. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. So excited to join the Salesforce Ohana!

    My best advice to anyone pursuing a career with Salesforce:

    1. Cliche, but - Proper Preparation Prevents Poor Performance - Recruiters are there to set you up for success. Read the Glassdoor questions and practice answering them. Do your research.

    2. Most importantly, BE YOURSELF! :)
