Recruiter Interview

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

Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (Chicago, IL).

Interview

This was by far the best interview process I've ever gone through. Every single recruiter I talked to throughout the process was kind, professional, fun/exciting, helpful, and knowledgeable. I was always kept in the loop as to where I stood in the process and when I should expect to hear back.

I had about 2 phone interviews, and then had a final interview with 4 others. I truly enjoyed speaking with everyone at every stage. Although interviews can always be intimidating, it really felt like they wanted to get to know me and my background to see if I was a fit. Everyone made me feel comfortable from the get-go which made the interview process feel a lot more natural than others I've gone through.

Two thumbs up!

    Recruiter Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The interview experience was short. The first phone interview was fast and too aggressive. When you are interviewing through the phone you are expecting questions of your experience and your skills, and not questions about stuff not related to the position you are interviewing for.

    Recruiter Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Initial phone screen by recruiter, phone interview with hiring manager, 1 round onsite interview with 4 people 30 min each, and then offer. The interview was not in any way different from other conventional interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • Interview questions were not difficult. There were several questions about experience in the various types of recruiting specializations. Fairly unsophisticated. The question that was borderline difficult to answer was whether a contract opportunity is preferred versus a permanent employment.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process at Salesforce is highly disorganized. I was an employee referral, yet both the referrer & I had to constantly email & call the hiring manager to schedule interviews & follow up. I was kept on "hold" for 3 weeks, before I finally withdrew from the process. Obviously a referral is not valued by the Recruiting department.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    I had a phone screen with a recruiter for 30 minutes. Then I was brought in that week to meet with four recruiters. Three were managers on my team and adjoining teams. Each interview lasted 30 minutes each, meaning the interview in-person lasted 2 hours. I had a lot of fun during the interview process. It was a great fit! It still is!

    Interview Questions

    • Most difficult (but not that difficult) was what company would you recruit a candidate out of, for one of your current top clients, how and why?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was given a salary much higher than my current so no negotiation was needed!
