Solution Architect Interview

Solution Architect
New York, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Salesforce.com in September 2013.

Interview Details – - Initial process started with the recruiter. Went through a standard screening
- Next step was to speak with some peers who went into my background and experience. General discussion on previous experience no real biggie.
- After this I had a phone conversation with the hiring manager and it went for 45 mins. He was very satisfied.
- Next I was called into the NY office for in person discussions. I was going to meet 3-4 people including the hiring mgr.
- While the hiring manager showed up on time and the discussion went well, the other interviewers were late....one of them was almost 20mins. late. I had to keep asking the front desk lady to help me find these interviewers. She did her best to contact them.
- One of the interviewers surprised me when he said that he was not sure what position I was interviewing for. Then, in the middle of the discussion he took several phone calls. In the end instead of taking 45 mins he spent only 10 minutes effectively. I was quite disgusted with the whole thing.
- In a nutshell, the in-person interviews left me with a bad taste.............and even if I had gotten an offer, I would have declined it.

Solution Architect Interview

Solution Architect

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Salesforce.com.

Interview Details – 4 interviews with the final one being a panel interview with 6 individuals. The case study was suppose to provide enough material for 80 minutes of role playing and 30 minutes of interview discussions. The experience was a little unrealistic to ask a person to spend countless hours configuring a product for an interview process rather than talk through capabilities.

Average Interview

Solution Architect Interview

Solution Architect
Toronto, ON (Canada)

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Salesforce.com in October 2011.

Interview Details – I was contract for an HR Interview which was followed by 4 Telephone Interviews. The interviews were both technical, situational and informative. The interviewees seemed honest and open. I was then flown in to for a group/panel interview in Toronto ( was originally planned for Atlanta) where I was asked to present on a pre-selected topic. To my surprise, the group had some other expectation in terms of the content and material. Nevertheless, the panel interview was followed a couple of phone interviews. I have not heard from them since. Kindda unprofessional I think. I do want to mention that they did reimburse the Interview expenses 3 weeks following the trip to Toronto - the bank transfer fee.. :)... The recruitment process tells a lot about the company in general...
