    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Salesforce.com.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews. One is with the recruiter and the follow-up is with two EBR managers. The recruiting questions are much more general about salesforce and why the role is of interest. The second is much more detailed with questions about the role itself and going through all of your past experiences.

    Enterprise Business Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Salesforce.com in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    The interview process started off with a phone screen from the recruiter, then a call with one of the Sales Development Managers which took two weeks to schedule because of some mix up on the manager's part. The next part was 1:1 interviews with 4 individuals (consisting of 2 Enterprise Business Managers and 2 Enterprise Business Representatives). The interview with the Enterprise Business Representatives were very casual which is not always good because it makes you casual too. The Enterprise Business Managers asked questions like: "How would you sell Salesforce to a VP of Sales"? "How would you sell our support product to a VP of Customer Support" "How would you start building accounts?" "Which tools would you use to find information?" Although they didn't ask me about my knowledge of their other products, it will earn you bonus points if you name drop them into examples. The environment was typical corporate. Cubicles. Nothing special and it did not seem that fun. Everyone that I met seemed to be drinking the kool-aid.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Salesforce.com in August 2009.

    Interview Details

    Very straight forward hiring process for anyone looking to join the business development/lead gen division of Salesforce.com. I was referred into Salesforce.com from a current employee. The HR team got back to me within 2 days. First was a phone screening with HR. Second was a 2 hour interview that consisted of 4 employees for 30 mins each. Two were current team members and two were managers. They asked very basic questions about previous experience, outside hobbies, background with sales and technology. There was also some role plays. I found it to be one of the easier interviews I had been partaking in at the time. Several days later I had an offer.

    Enterprise Business Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Salesforce.com in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    Was easy. Phone screening, then a four person round robin interview, then final phone interview with RVP. Tell the truth and don't pump up yourself, give corny and bland answers and you'll pass with flying colors.

    Young group of people and most are mid entry level trying to make a name for themselves. It's college all over again.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Salesforce.com in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    After a call with the HR, a meeting session takes place on site with different manager.
    Between 5 and 8 interviews to discuss about what you have done before and your culture of the market.
    For the interviews the most valuable advice would just be to remain yourself. Salesforce is a good and fun company to work for with great employees so just prepare yourself to play hard and work hard.
