    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA (US)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The position I interviewed for was C++ specific, although the job will require some iOS, Android and Windows specific stuff as well.

    Interview over the phone first. Very friendly and nice chat, no technical questions during that.

    Second part was programming test. I spent several hours implementing a C++ program that did a lot of things with data structures, JSON, threading, etc. They liked this enough to fly me out to San Francisco.

    Third part of the interview was a day long process where I met with several managers and teams where I chatted and answered multiple technical questions and did a few basic coding exercises. They liked me well enough to offer me the job :)

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA (US)) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Overall the experience was great. Everyone on the team was very nice and seemed generally smart.

    I had one interview that was a little at odds with the type of interview one would generally expect for this role, but it was constructive nonetheless.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (San Francisco, CA (US)) in July 2019.

    Interview

    This interview states location of San Francisco but all of my interactions were via Google Hangouts as this was a remote position. I first met with the hiring manager. This first meeting was mainly an initial screen. I was then scheduled to speak with several members of the team (CTO, Architect, SMTS, LMTS, etc.) over the next 5-7 days for 45 minutes each. After completing all of these sessions I was presented with an offer the following business day. The last session was on a Friday afternoon and I had an offer on Monday.

    Post-offer communication is top notch. Expectations are set at all points in the process and there is always someone to call or email if there are any questions or concerns.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions were all related to explaining my current role and prior projects I have worked on that are relevant to this position.   1 Answer

    Contacted via a internal contact. Phone screen with Hiring manger on basic interview and technical questions followed by a two hour programming test.

    Interview Questions

    • It depends on who you're interviewing with. For me there's nothing really difficult.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The recruiter low-balled me quite a bit, actually she began with an unreasonable base salary. I had to negotiate pretty hard. Even then I didn't get what I was expecting.

    Interview

    The best interview process I have ever had. The recruiters were very responsive and the interviewers were great. First I had a phone screen with one of the directors followed by a remote programming test which was very interesting to solve. This was followed by four onsite interviews which included programming and questions on past experience and some questions on testing.
