    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sydney

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (Sydney) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Very straight forward process. The internal recruiter did a great job preparing me for each interview stage. Initial conversation was a phone screening with the recruiter. Immediately scheduled an on-site interview with one of the Sales Managers & Senior Directors. After this, I had a panel/presentation interview with 3 Senior Executives (2 Directors & 1 VP). I had one final interview with the VP of the division they were looking to have me join. The recruiter was prompt in providing post interview feedback during each stage of the process. An offer was extended same day as my last interview.

    Interview

    Phone interview... during covid. Great people and very interesting questions. Specifically they didn’t really ask about past experiences they ask more about how they operate. The total interview experience was interesting and then got put on hold due to covid.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Salesforce.

    Interview

    The interview process was roughly 6 weeks start to finish and roughly 4 main steps.
    1. Spoke with a Recruiter, Therese, who walked through my background, told me a bit about the job to see if the role was a fit.

    2. Spoke with a Regional Sales Manager via phone, very similar to step one, about 30 minutes

    3. Virtual meeting with 2 Regional Sales Managers, deep dive into my background, what have I learned from these opportunities, where did i struggle, what has gone well, etc.

    4, Panel Presentation on Salesforce, walking through a deal and territory. Pretty straight forward, was meant to see how you interact and present to a client

    All in it was a great experience, loved the people I got to speak with and Therese was super helpful along the way.

    Recruiter Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Salesforce.

    Interview

    I've had phone screens with recruiters for different openings. I can honestly say they have both been awful. Both recruiters reached out from different cities for different roles. After our phone screens, I was ghosted. I followed up with each recruiter twice and never hard back. For a company that really focuses on customer service and giving the best candidate experience-they've really failed to do so. I have no interest in interviewing with this company again.

    Product Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce.

    Interview

    The recruiting process is not very clear, explained or discussed. All of my interaction was through email and the recruiter was not forthcoming with what to expect and how to prepare. I went in to the interview with the hiring manager completely blind to what the outcomes would be for that conversation and also never talked to a recruiter about the job or my skills.
    The interviewer also seemed to ask a lot of the strategy of my current company, which was uncomfortable.

    Interview

    Very easy, didn't get many technical questions, interviewers are interested in your backgrounds, all people I talked to are very friendly and caring. Just need to understand the business and be ready to talk about previous projects.

    Business Development Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boulder, CO (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Salesforce (Boulder, CO (US)).

    Interview

    I submitted my resume through my school's Handshake, and was selected to go to a group coffee chat. From there, I got my first interview. It was extremely intimidating - they definitely use some fear tactics in the interview to see how you behave on you toes. I did not feel very welcomed, and it was the worst interview I've ever had (I've interviewed at a lot of the top tech companies).

    Be prepared to answer on-the-spot sales questions!
