    Interview Details

    Salesforce has a telephonic screening after which on site process starts. The telephonic screening is basically to judge your background in the area. They would ask questions specific to job posting. The questions asked were mostly related to SQL injection and Cross site scripting. Along with that I was asked a couple of questions related to cloud. But the questions in general are easy to crack and one should prepare specific to job title.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Salesforce.

    Interview Details

    I had inquired this position through a friend referral and the hiring manager reached out to me the same day to set up my phone interview. I really enjoyed the interviewer's enthusiasm and she really made me feel very comfortable. She started out giving a quick overview of the company and role. Then she went into asking questions that would help her find out we were a mutual fit for each other. The interviewer was great at elaborating on my questions to help me understand the expectations and culture at Salesforce. I guess she was really impressed by me that she asked for my onsite availability at the end of the phone interview!

    Reasons for Declining

    I was offered to move forward to the onsite interview the same week, but I just got stuck with unexpected hi-priority projects at my current job. I'm still really excited about this opportunity, but timing wasn't right and I really wanted to be prepare for this interview. I had no idea that they were moving so quickly! :)

     Overall, I had a great candidate experience and would love to apply again in the future.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Salesforce.

    Interview Details

    My head hunter put me to their process, and then it was a big nightmare. The interview schedule was *very* flaky; scheduled, busted, took more than one week to reschedule, and the second round scheduling was the same. Thank God I don't need to take this ridiculousness again.

    Technical Support Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Salesforce in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online on the career website and got an initial screening round call with the HR. After that, was the telephone round which was technical. Once that was done, the final round was in the Oregon office. On the interview day, they gave a tour of the office building; which is spectacular; and they did an introductory session. It was mainly aimed at emphasizing how Salesforce.com is an innovative company growing by leaps and bounds. This session is a great chance for candidates to learn more about the company and ask questions. After that, there were 3 back-to-back rounds which were behavioral, technical and cultural. Next week after the interview week, I got the much awaited call that I was being offered the position with the company. The HR were very professional and communicated effectively during the entire process.

    Had the opportunity to be interviewed by the recruiter who then informed me of the hiring process. Had two phone interviews with and then two onsite interviews. A total of 4 interviews which I thought when fairly well. Due to my inexperience in employee benefits, I was not selected for the position.

    Information Security Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Salesforce in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very shady. I was asked questions about 5 different types of roles within the IT Security space. The recruiter was unable to pin down what the job was exactly. They were insistent on asking how well I would be able to manage "awkward" and "strange" employees. After 2 phone interview with recruiter, I assumed that things would not be progressing. Then I got a call one week later asking to do a Skype phone interview with recruiter. At this point I insisted on getting more details about the position and team (SalesForce is a very large company). He state, and I quote, "The VP and Director are not comfortable disclosing their names or location in company at this time". I have interviewed at many companies large and small, and have not ever heard of a hiring manager that did not want to tip their hat to who they are.

    I went along with the skype interview regardless, and after the fact, I received a phone call explaining that I was not a good fit for position, but I should look - on my own - for another security role at company and get back to the recruiter. Again, I asked who the hiring manager was, now that it really did not matter, and he flat out refused to disclose this information.
