    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce in May 2020.

    Interview

    I had a recruiter reach out to me via LinkedIn. We then scheduled a 30 minute phone interview where she was able to get a better understanding of my background, prospecting/sales skills, etc. After this, I was scheduled for a 90 minute interview. First 30 minutes with two current BDRs at Salesforce and the final hour with two hiring managers. Prior to my interview, my recruiter emailed me an interview prep guide filled with tons of valuable information about Salesforce. This was extremely helpful and and I felt well prepared. Everyone that I met during the interview process was terrific. It felt much more like a conversation than an interview. After this, I was notified the following day that I would be extended an offer.

    Interview

    So unprofessional in communication. Recruiter’s say they will get back to you by a certain time and during the entire process I always had to reach out after because no one got back to me by the time they said they would. Solely did not accept the job because of how terrible they communicate it showed how little they cared and their lack of interest. You’re just a number.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (Chicago, IL (US)) in April 2020.

    Interview

    The interview process ran very smoothly despite the Coronavirus pandemic we are in. Everyone was very nice and supportive from the initial HR representatives to the Sales Manager in the interview. Everything was done virtually, however with the clear instructions and transparency of the process it was easy to navigate through.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce in April 2020.

    Interview

    My recruiter, Bianca Gordon, ran an incredibly efficient process - especially in a Covid-19 environment. From start to finish it was roughly 2 weeks. First round was with my recruiter, followed by a peer interview and a panel with 2 managers. Last round was a call with a director. One of the smoothest interview processes I have ever been involved in.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Salesforce (Denver, CO (US)) in April 2020.

    Interview

    Hiring process took 10 days total. Started on with a phone screen interview with my recruiter Bianca. She was amazing every step of the way, she sent me a detailed list of what I needed to know and was very responsive to any questions that I had during the process. I think what sets her apart as a great recruiter was that she scheduled a follow up call after she sent me the information to run through my responses and made sure I was prepared every step of the way. She even sat in on my interview and listened in while it was going on - this was the first time I've personally seen a recruiter sit in on an interview during my professional career.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA (US)) in March 2020.

    Interview

    Very straightforward recruiting process. Bianca, the sales recruiter I had was very easy to talk with and incredibly helpful in the interview process. She kept it both professional and friendly the whole time.

    Total process was about 2 weeks with clear direction and insight into the process the whole time. Salesforce does a good job of giving the information to the candidate and putting it on them to prepare.
