Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at Salesforce (Chicago, IL) in Oct 2020

Interview

This was the toughest interview I've ever had. Although I give them credit for truly finding the best candidate, it was an interrogation. There was no conversation, no small talk and no sense of humor. They were trying to trick me with questions. I've always looked at Salesforce as my dream company. I researched and networked as much as I possibly could to get there. After this interview, I was extremely defeated.

Interview Questions
  • What are some soft skills you're working on? What do you think will be the hardest part of this job? How do you prospect? (in response to my previous answer) - if I saw that as a red flag, how would you respond?

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (Chicago, IL) in Mar 2020

Interview

Submitted application on Workday, had a conversation with a recruiter, then got my final interview scheduled with three managers. My recruiter sent me a list of things to prepare for and look at before the interview. The actual interview was 45 minutes long and I was asked questions for about 35 minutes by all three managers before I asked my questions/closed.

Interview Questions
  • Tell us about yourself. Why Salesforce? Tell us about one of your role models and why. If you were CEO of your last company and could change one thing, what would that be? If this doesn't work out, what would your backup plan be? Are you the smartest person in the room or hardest worker?

Interview

I interviewed with 3 managers and it went well. The recruiter I worked with made me feel incredibly prepared for the interview and I am so grateful. Some questions were standard interview questions but a couple caught me off guard and I appreciated the challenge. While the interview was one of the longest I've ever had (1.5 hours), it went by quickly and smoothly.

Interview Questions
