I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks – interviewed at Salesforce.
The hardest part of the process was getting the first interview. I'll admit, my resume does not reflect that I have much ongoing sales experience (graduated college 2 years ago) and because of my lack of experience, my resume was rejected by recruiters numerous times. I finally got a phone interview as a result one of 4 people within Salesforce submitting my resume on my behalf. Once I actually talked with one of the recruiters, the process was pretty standard. the process: 1. phone interview with recruiter, 2. in-person interview with AE manager, 3. phone interview with who would be my immediate manager, 4. in-person sales presentation for panel of 7 Salesforce employees. Although the process was long and the presentation was somewhat stressful due to the number of people in the room asking questions about me and my presentation, the process was pretty standard for someone trying to earn a sales position.
- In my presentation I was asked to make a value calculation for the mock-customer. If I knew what a typical return on investment was as a result of implementing Salesforce within an organization, this value calculation could have been more accurate (and effective) for the presentation.

The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Salesforce (Toronto, ON (Canada)).
Applied online and got an email from head office setting up a screening call. First call lasted 40 minutes at which point I was deemed qualified to move on the the next phone call. Second call was set up a week later with Account Exec manager; lasted 10 minutes; I was told I'd be better suited for an EBR role. Third phone call set up a few days later with another recruiter for another screening call exactly the same as the first, lasted 30 minutes. Again deemed qualified to move onto next step for EBR role. Was invited to Networking Event that was happening the next day to meet with exisiting staff, managers, HR managers. Received call next day about outcome, provided with zero feedback.
