    Senior Data Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    First a 30-minute call with the recruiter, followed by another 30-minute call with the hiring manager the week after

    At first, the recruiter was very responsive and set up an interview with the manager within 2 days. Didn't click too well with manager, that's alright, but no one even bothered to give me a response after I tried following up with the recruiter 3 times over the course of 3 weeks.

    Recruiting Operations Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Despite not getting the job in the end, this was the best interview experience I've had at any company. The questions directed to me were thoughtful and the interviewers were genuine in making me feel like I mattered. The process consisted of a phone screen, 2 Google Hangouts, and an onsite with 4 people (with an Excel quiz at the beginning). The entire recruitment team was very responsive when it came to phone calls/emails and made sure to keep me as up-to-date as possible with my candidacy.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Had phone screen, in-person interviews with 4 people, skills test, and two more video interviews. Didn't get an offer, which isn't bad in itself; but after all that, I just got a form rejection email. Company claims to be heavily into feedback as a key to their culture, but they would not provide any.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Salesforce.

    Interview

    Only one phone interview. Interviewer was very laid back and only asked simple CS questions that went over the bare essentials of what any CS major would learn after freshman year. Had a great conversation about software testing and how a lot of companies don't bother with it. Looked over projects on my Github very deeply and talked about why I chose certain projects.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    After applying, a recruiter reached out and invited me to attend a virtual info session involving a multitude of F&S professionals to describe the functions of the department. I had a short phone screen with the recruiter, and after moving on to final rounds, there were 3 back-to-back interviews with senior level professionals in the department. Overall, everyone was really nice and accommodating, and the recruiter never went a week without contact. Make sure you research the company, news, and product to show your enthusiasm.
