    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce in March 2020.

    Interview

    Very clear expectations from the beginning. I was assigned a mentor to guide me through the process and she was incredibly helpful. The process included coffee chats followed by a super-day (panel) with role-playing. I had 2 weeks to prepare for the panel. I was given a business case and had to prepare a powerpoint and a demonstration over 2 weeks.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Salesforce (Chicago, IL (US)) in December 2019.

    Interview

    I applied through an employee referral for the team I was hoping to join. I had a series of 1:1 interviews, then a discovery/panel process that took about 3-4 weeks. I felt incredibly supported through the entire process, and that Salesforce had really invested in me even just as a candidate. You are assigned a coach through the discovery/panel process who are really invaluable, allowing you to bounce ideas off them and do dry runs of your presentation. I felt like they wanted me to succeed throughout the process, and it made me even more motivated to join the team. Definitely one of the better interview processes of my career.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (New York, NY (US)) in December 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of an introductory meeting with the hiring manager (not typical, usually a phone call), then 3 or 4 phone calls with the team, then I was provided a business case in which you preform a mock discovery. From there, the last round was a demo in front of 10ish people & a few on the phone.

    The demo was a bit nerve wrecking but overall wasn't that bad. They look for your presentation skills and how you can handle yourself when faced with difficult questions.

    Overall, the process was thorough and pleasant.

    Interview Questions

    • During the Demo - a question was asked about integrations with legacy systems   1 Answer
