    one phone interview, one onsite
    the phone interview wasn't smooth, for the quality of phone call was bad, and the accent make it worse.

    the onsite took one day. start late (after 10am). one hour coding test in a separate room. after you are done, there is another hour walking through the code with them.
    one hour lunch with two team leader.
    there are 3 (or 4, I don't remember) 45 minutes interview in the afternoon, each round with two people, one of them could be calling in from other office.

    Interview Details

    Had a call with Hiring Manager, asked pretty basics Java questions. Manager was very friendly and to the point. I was then asked to take 2 hours timed programming interview, they insisted to keep that on weekday during normal working hours, not sure why. The question asked was good, not the regular data structure problems like BFS, traversals, etc. The question felt more like a school assignment, where you were given a scenario and you had to implement/solve the problem using commonly used techniques.
    I failed to finish it in two hours and got a reject 2 days later.

    Account Executive Interview

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Salesforce.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • 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.   Answer Question
