Product Marketing Manager Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA) in March 2013.
Had a phone interview with Salesforce.com's recruiter. The recruiter was okay. She asked some behavior questions. Since the job descriptions involved working with sales team, she discussed how I interacted with them and when I was involved during the sales cycle. After the interview, I haven't heard from her for a while. I followed up with her a week later; she responded with some standard language saying they decided to move ahead with other candidates. No additional feedback was provided.

The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA) in April 2011.
Multi round interview consisting of phone interviews, 1 on1 interviews with both colleagues and execs, and a presentation. Long, slow process... But got the impression that the barks very highland they want to make sure that the peop,e they hire cannot only do the job,but will bea cultural fit. This is an intense, demanding company.... And those that fit well will thrive and love it.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Salesforce in February 2010.
It was a pretty standard interview process. I already knew the recruiter from a different position that I applied for 6 months earlier. She did the initial screening to make sure that I was qualified for the position. I then did a phone screen for the first round with the hiring manager because I wasn't based in the SF/Bay Area. The next round was consolidated for me because I would have to fly in to SF for a combined second/final round of interviews; I had second rounds with 5 people including the hiring manager in the morning and then a 20 minute presentation in the afternoon to showcase my abilities to market a fictional product.
- The real world scenario where I had three weeks to present a fictional product launch to the hiring manager (VP of Product Marketing) and head of the group (SVP of Product Marketing) was definitely challenging but also very informative of their work environment and standards. I love this practice and use it today when I'm hiring. Answer Question
Reasons for Declining
Decided that I wanted to stick with the start-up that gave me a counter offer where I wouldn't have to move. Loved the company though, and would definitely consider working for them in the future.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (London, England (UK)) in July 2013.
Pre-screening interview with recruitment team, followed by 30 minute telephone interview by main stakeholder, followed by 3 face to face interviews (each lasting around one hour) with local stakeholders (Sales, marketing and technical). Questions were mainly around experience and willingness to adapt to new environment.
