    How we've built Australia's best workplace

    We're incredibly proud to have been named Australia's #1 Best Place to Work for the 1,000+ employees category, for the second year running. A few weeks ago, my colleague Peter Doolan wrote about innovation mindsets, making the point that the companies best prepared for the future know their superpower is not their products or their services - it's their people and culture.

  • "When is a time when you didn’t get it all right? What did you learn from it and how did you incorporate that into your career going forward?” Our Chief Equality Officer, Tony Prophet, talks about how the answer to these questions can win him over.

    How to answer this Salesforce exec's go-to interview question about failure

    Since joining Salesforce in September 2016, Chief Equality Officer Tony Prophet has interviewed several candidates who are interested in working for the tech company. To determine if someone will be a good fit for his team, he uses one go-to interview question to test a candidate's ability to learn from failure.

Salesforce – Why Work For Us?


Years ago, while on sabbatical in Hawaii, Marc Benioff had a vision for a different kind of company – one built around not only a new technology, business, and philanthropy model, but also built around the Hawaiian concept of “Ohana” – which means “family” in Hawaiian.

Today, Ohana is at the heart of everything Salesforce does. It is the deep-seated support system we nurture inside our company that extends from our employees to our customers, our partners, and our communities. It is the bedrock upon which our company was built and the foundation for all the success that has flowed – and will continue to flow from it.

So what does Ohana look like in practice?

  • It’s our employees knowing Salesforce is a place where they can be themselves, team up with other amazing individuals to accomplish the incredible, and have fun doing it.
  • It’s our customers and partners trusting that we are here to help them succeed.
  • It’s communities believing as we succeed, we will share our success with them.
  • It’s our whole Ohana – Salesforce employees, customers, partners and nonprofits – working together to improve the state of the world.

Our core values – Innovation, Customer Success, and Giving Back – make our work meaningful, while our other values – Trust, Transparency, Equality, Wellness and Fun – ensure that we work together right. Together these values unite us, inspire us, and make us uniquely Salesforce – a great place to work.

    I have been working at Salesforce full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Salesforce has a great culture and is very warm and welcoming to new joiners. In addition the salary and benefits are the best, I have ever come across.

    Cons

    Salesforce is constantly recognized as one of best employers in the world and I can't think of anything that needs to be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you are doing.

    Sales Operations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (Toronto, ON) in October 2018.

    Interview

    I had a telephone interview with an HR recruiter, followed by an in-person interview the following week. In person interview was a bit unique; I had 3 separate interviews. First with a colleague, second with 2 managers and third with another colleague. No trick questions. They just asked about my experience and personality type questions to make sure I fit into the role and company culture. Extremely good communication. I always felt up-to-date on next steps.
