    Business Development Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Salesforce (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    1 Screening interview, 1 longer "real" interview, 1 full day at their office called "Assessment center".

    The first two steps were pretty basic straight-line things. Nothing to really worry about, just practice like you would with an ordinary interview. Make sure that you can answer the "why" questions (Why did you choose Salesforce, why this position, why tech industry).

    The Assessment center contained 3 interviews, split up between personal motivation for the job, Business Accumen and Cultural fit. It also had one business case where you had to present a solution together with two others. There's no crazy things happening, but make sure you have good knowledge on their big products and the company as a whole.

    For the business acumen interview, try to think of what a sales rep need to know in a company. Why do the customers pay you, what do they want out of it. ROI and so on.

    The cultural interview will be fine as long as you know their core values, and how you fit in with that.

    The business case is mainly about showing that you can cooperate with people while being time-pressured, as well as knowing the products from a sales rep point of view. You don't need any programming knowledge, just more of what it can do to help companies grow etc.

    Business Development Representative Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Salesforce (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The process was very good from start to finish. It was one hangouts call for an hour with a mock call, and one on-site interview that included a presentation. It took a bit more than a month from start to finish, and that's only because I postponed the 2nd interview in a week. The interviewers were supportive made me feel at ease. The recruiter I had was amazing, very helpful, friendly and responded very quickly to any question I had.

    Probably the best interviewing experience I've had. And what's even more impressive to me is that I interviewed for Salesforce a year before and the experience wasn't that good, so I'm happy to see the constant improvement.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Brief interview with the recruiteur, one assignement to complete online, video call with one manager then 2 interviews on site with peers and future manager.
    The assignement was quite long to complete but gave me a good overview of the product and also helped me for the interviews.
    Everyone I had an interaction with was professional and friendly. They all made their best to make me feel at ease.
    Process was quite fast, recruiteur came back to me when he said he will.
    I have been really happy with the whole recruitment process and it remains my best experience so far.

    SMB Account Executive Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Salesforce (Dublin, Co. Dublin (Ireland)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    First stage was an introduction call with the hiring partner Jane who was incredibly friendly and helpful through the whole process. Then a quick fire 3 * 20 minute interview with 3 managers which was a new concept to me but quite interesting. It certainly keeps you from getting to comfortable in the interviews. This was followed by a group interview and presentation and finally a meeting with the regional VP. Overall a positive and fast process with very clear next steps and the team were transparent the whole way through.
