    Learning Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (Indianapolis, IN) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Interview process consisted of phone screen, then face to face meeting, then another face to face meeting with the larger team. I have to say, they ended up going with an internal candidate who had none of the qualifications they originally said they were looking for. I also felt the hiring manager did not understand what she was actually interviewing for.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through internal referral program. Four steps involved in the interview process: phone call screen from hiring manager, 2hrs remote technical test, two on-site interviews( from two different teams). Overall, all the interviewers are well nice, knowledgeable, and response is very quick after interviews. Recruiters are very kind, and they will try to help you position to other teams if the feedback is positive from interview but the team gets better candidate.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Initially I was contacted by a recruiter for anither position. After two phone calls with a recruiter and the administrative temporarily filling in, I was deemed a qualified candidate to meet the C-level executive staff. I was told more interviews would be organized after Dreamforce. A few weeks before Dreamforce I was notified that the position was filled by a internal candidate. The recruiter communicated that my two sessions were enjoyed and they'd contact me with another opportunity. I had another phone interview for a new position. I appreciated the recruiter telling me this position was different in title and income before diving in no the process. After one interview with a team member and another interview with four other team members, I was verbally offered the position.
