    Sales Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Sydney
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Salesforce.com.

    Interview Details

    Extended process going through several interviews by phone and then face to face.
    Standard process can take as many as 7 interviews during which you will not know if they are keen on you or not.
    Final interview is a Scripted scenario in which you are expected to present from a deck of 80 slides, and if in pre-sales you will also need to demo the product.
    Key to this process is to read the instructions!
    The goal of this role-play session is to get a next meeting with the role-play client. Grab any/every chance to get the next meeting even if it means dropping your slides and goign straight for closing questions.

    MM Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Sydney
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sydney
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Salesforce.com in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    Straight forward like all sales roles in IT; Recruiter > 1-1 with hiring manager > presentation to panel > call with regional VP. They are lovely people, so just follow the process and you'll be fine. Learn as much as you can about the company beforehand as the slides they want you to present are over 3 years old, so irrelevant in context. Therefore, show them you know they are old by verbalising the new messaging.
