    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.

    Software Engineering Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I had two rounds of interviews, one with a software engineer and the other with the hiring manager.

    The interview with the software engineer was first, and it was mostly a technical interview, but there's also a Q&A portion where you can ask the engineer about the work they do, etc. Be prepared to also talk about your past experiences and a project or two that you're passionate about.

    The interview with the hiring manager was mostly to see whether or not I was a good fit for the team, so it was talking about what the team does, and what I would be doing on the team. There was also a "technical" portion, but nothing coding or CS related. Instead, the questions were more problem solving and logic puzzles based.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Salesforce.

    Interview

    Outstanding process. Not only the recruiter keeps you updated during the process but also gives you helpful insights for you to succeed. There are 3 things you need to do in order to succeed: prepare, prepare and prepare, oh, did I mention you need to prepare? no? then prepare yourself because you will be tested in all aspects: business, consulting, technology, and behavior. They evaluate you in all those aspects to see if you have the grasp on those subjects as well as if you are the perfect fit. The last interview, a panel presentation, is meant for the panelists to evaluate your executive presence, presentation skills, technical and consulting skills all at once, so take your time to prepare for that one.

    SDR Interview

    Positive Experience

    Interview

    Awesome process from start to finish. I never felt in the dark and there was clear communication regarding each step. My recruiter Meg was awesome! She ensured I was prepared throughout and was always quick to respond. Had an initial screening/brief interview call with recruiter. I was then scheduled for an on site interview where I met with 2 current SDR's and 3 hiring managers. The SDR's made me feel welcomed and comfortable heading into the manager interview, where everyone was extremely professional and fun to engage with. I was asked a lot of insightful questions that really show them how you think on your feet and how self aware you are. It was definitely the best interview I've been a part of. Two days later Meg called me to let me know they were extending an offer. Super excited!
