    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Salesforce in February 2017.

    Interview

    Phone interview with hiring manager followed by several onsite interviews. Lots of questions and interviews by junior folks who don't seem prepared and negative about working there. I've interviewed twice for different positions and each time I didn't get a good vibe about the environment or team. People seem overworked and tired. Also seems like a politically charged environment with "mean girls" vibe. I spent a portion of the interviews with interviewers checking out and complimenting my clothing and bag and discussing shopping websites then the actual job interview questions. Very young, junior interviewers.

    Customer Success Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Barueri (Brazil)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Salesforce (Barueri (Brazil)) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I've been contacted by email from a recruiter who found my resume and understood that it might be a good fit for the role. I agreed to proceed and we had a first conversation. After little time I received a confirmation that I would proceed to have another conversation with the manager of the role. After this I had other two conversations, one Zithromax other five employees and in the final one, a director. This whole process took about a month. In the subsequent week I have been offered the position.

    Interview Questions

    • All the questions were around my background experience but focusing on the scope of the actual role I was being interviewed for. At all times they tried to make as clear as possible the responsibility of the position too. An interesting point is that they always leave time in the end for you to ask them questions - and seems like it's very appreciated.   Answer Question

    Manager, Enablement - Program Management Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Salesforce (Denver, CO) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was by far one of the best that I have experienced. Unlike other companies that ask you the standard interview questions Salesforce wanted to know more about me as a person and wanted to see if I would be a cultural fit with the company and team. The last interview panel was more trying to figure out my actual skill level but even that one was mostly based on my interaction with all participates.

    Talent Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce.

    Interview

    Great communication with the Recruiter along all the process.

    First call around 30 min with the Recruiter.

    Few days later second call with a person from the team I am going to work with. He told me about the role in more detail and he was very transparent about what kind of person they were looking for. It was supposed to be just 30 min but he didn't have any problem in staying longer to answer all my questions and queries.

    Final step was an interview with the Director of the department. The environment was very casual and it made me feel very comfortable. The questions were more about my future expectations and the challenge​ the company is facing from a Talent Acquisition perspective. I informed about my professional situation and they respected the timings to make a final decision.

    Senior Technical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    First, I did a brief 30 minute phone interview with the hiring manager, followed by a second brief phone interview with another key stakeholder for the position. That went well, so they decided to fly me into San Francisco for a formal in-person interview. The interview loop consisted of seven 30 minute interviews with a variety of people, including the hiring manager and another parallel manager, a technical writer who would be roughly a direct peer if I was hired, and a few Senior Director-level leaders of relevant groups. A lot of questions about my process and experience with technical writing, including how I approach new projects, gathering subject matter expertise, and handling feedback. There was ample time to discuss the position itself, and for questions about the company and the role.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time you had to give significant feedback on a project or a piece of writing that needed a lot of work.   Answer Question

    Sales Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (London, England (UK)) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Moved fast at the beginning - but then recruiter seemed to falter and whole process went downhill. The poor experience with the recruiter made me wonder if the company would also end up being similar. In the end I pulled out of process due in part to location and also due to poor recruitment experience.
