    Lead UI Engineer Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA) in December 2018.

    Interview

    Interview process was slightly delayed by the holiday (a great perk of Salesforce, they give 2 full weeks off over Christmas and New Year's), but once things moved forward I found the process wonderful. The take-home code assignment was better than most I've had to do for interviews, since it was building a real application and the example project closely mirrors their working stack, which I found valuable in assessing my level of interest in the product I would be building.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    HR Phone Screen>One hour interview with member of team>half hour interviews with other members of team and hiring manager>offer

    Because of the holidays, scheduling took a little while longer. The entire process was over about 8 weeks. I found the interview process to be well managed, and all of the people I interviewed with were wonderful. There was no ego in anyone I met, and everyone seemed truly happy to be where they were.

    The questions I was asked were very normal for this level and type of position for someone with my background. I got all of my questions answered as well. When it came time for an offer, the process was also very straightforward. I chose not to negotiate as the offer was exactly what I was hoping for. I'm super excited to be joining the team at Salesforce.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Overall the experience was great. Everyone on the team was very nice and seemed generally smart.

    I had one interview that was a little at odds with the type of interview one would generally expect for this role, but it was constructive nonetheless.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The position I interviewed for was C++ specific, although the job will require some iOS, Android and Windows specific stuff as well.

    Interview over the phone first. Very friendly and nice chat, no technical questions during that.

    Second part was programming test. I spent several hours implementing a C++ program that did a lot of things with data structures, JSON, threading, etc. They liked this enough to fly me out to San Francisco.

    Third part of the interview was a day long process where I met with several managers and teams where I chatted and answered multiple technical questions and did a few basic coding exercises. They liked me well enough to offer me the job :)

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Mateo, CA) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Interview was the standard software engineer interview. Recruiters don't follow up. I reached out to see if there was any feedback after a week. Recruiter said he was still gathering the feedback from the team and that he would get back to me later the same day. Well...that was over 2 weeks ago and still no response. It's pretty lame and reflects poorly on the company. I wouldn't want to work for such an unresponsive company.
