    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sydney
    Accepted Offer
    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.

    Senior Product Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Salesforce.

    Interview

    Got referred through my Linked In connection. Got a call within two days from recruiter. Had a interview setup within 2 days. The recruiter was very prompt and responsive. The interviewer was Product manager, asked questions on experience, situational, cloud, salesforce, sql. Took 1 hour to finish.
    Only thing I didn’t like was the interviewer himself hasn’t done any work on a specific tech and was expecting me to have experience. In fact their entire team was not doing any of that kind of work in that technology but he was asking me if i had done any cloud design. I told him it’s normally done by cloud architect and not product analyst. He and his team were not even working in cloud technologies. Most of the questions felt like he assumed that I’m lying or something as he was asking unnecessary cross questions.
    The next day I see him asking for profiles in LinkedIn. I felt like its a conflict of interest, when you’re bringing in profiles of your connections and friends and you’re the one in charge of hiring the candidate.
    I didn’t expect this kind of practice from Salesforce.

    Very relaxed asked about my experience. Asked about why I wanted the role, what Salesforce does. Asked about extra curricular. Woman who interviewed me was very nice and genuine. I then had a second round which was similar.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Salesforce.

    Interview

    The interviewer was really friendly, and all of the questions were typical behavioral interview questions, like "How would you handle a disagreement with a coworker." This is the only interview I had with them, and it was over the phone (before the pandemic hit).

    Though you go through quite a few steps in the hiring process, it moved really fast and you were always informed of each next step/action. Everyone I interviewed with was extremely well spoken, and open to answering any questions or providing feedback.

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Salesforce.

    Interview

    It dragged on for 4 months, which I’ve never experienced before. You’d think they were recruiting for some C level executive. It was a new group figuring things out so I gave the benefit of the doubt. However the recruiting process was disorganized with lack of response by the recruiter (or she would reach out and then leave you hanging), “system errors” causing delays which they could have caught sooner, and last minute scheduling changes with no given reason. It clearly came off like they didn’t respect other people’s schedule. I appreciated the interviews once I had them but overall it was a negative experience. One other odd thing was how often the hiring manager mentioned other candidates. You know that old saying, treat every client like they’re your only one even if they know they’re not? By the end it was so frustrating I was relieved I didn’t get the offer.
