Software Quality Engineer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
San Francisco, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Salesforce.com in March 2014.

Interview Details – Referred by employee and later got contacted by a recruiter to schedule a phone interview. It was an 1 hour phone interview with online programming. After the phone, they determined that I didn't need a second round interview and go onsite directly. The onsite was set about 1 week later.

Interview Question – Phone interview: reverse an array, and write test cases for it.

Onsite:
1. How to test twitter posting?
2. Programming test 2 methods: reverse a string and compare 2 strings. Write test cases for both methods.
3. Manager Interview
4. Revers a circled linked list. Questions about singleton pattern.

Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Salesforce.com.

Interview Details – After you get contacted by a recruiter, it takes about a week to get a phone screen. Scheduled a phone interview, and got no call, so I emailed to have it rescheduled. Received no apology either-very unprofessional. Its insulting to wait for a call, and prepare your whole morning around it, and not receive a call. No other company has done this to me. The rescheduled interview was 10 minutes late, and immediately the recruiter conveyed an unfriendly tone evoking a sense that I was already wasting her time. The questions were straightforward, but it was a very uncomfortable process as she gave a cursory glance at my work history. Recruiting department needs to behave more professionally if they want to attract good talent.

Performance Engineer Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university - interviewed at Salesforce.com in February 2014.

Interview Details – Resume review. The interviewer was 15 minutes late. He was expecting me to know about the performance testing tools. But as a college student, of course I don't know about these tools. Also, we talked about the projects I listed in the resume. He asked me to explain one of the projects, which is a distributed system project. He asked about how I make the system reliable.
