    Network Security Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Indianapolis, IN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Salesforce (Indianapolis, IN) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I had a great experience overall during my interviews. I had two phone interviews; one with the internal recruiter, and one with the hiring manager in Indianapolis. Shortly after that Salesforce flew me to Indianapolis for a panel interview and then a 2 hour lunch/ interview with the hiring manager. I felt good about the in person interviews. I was nervous but that is to be expected when answering questions to a panel of experts in their fields. After I reached the airport to head back home I received a call from my recruiter with an offer from Salesforce.

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

    Interview

    The interview process was thorough and substantive. The recruiter was extremely helpful in understanding my career experience and where I could be a fit. The initial role I applied for was not a fit, but instead of just moving on he spoke with others and found a more appropriate opportunity.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Salesforce in July 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screen with recruiter. Very conversational, recruiter was easy to talk to. The email stating I would not be moving forward was generic and the reason for not moving forward was the same reason that they were interested in the first place (experience).

    Business Development Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Salesforce (Chicago, IL) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I was referred by a current Salesforce employee. The overall process was quick, 3 weeks in total from first phone interview to offer. I had one phone interview followed by an onsite interview in Chicago. Meg and Brenna were extremely helpful in coordinating the interview process and supplying me with material to study/catch-up on before my on-site.

    The on-site was not bad. I met with two managers then two BDR's who are currently in the role. Toughest part of the interview was a mock cold-call scenario but if you have experience in cold calling it's extremely straightforward.
