Interview

Only 15 minutes long. Very quick and not very friendly. Interviewer not very friendly. Acted as if I was wasting her time. Won't really consider you even for an entry level position if you do not have sales experience.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied through an employee referral I interviewed at Salesforce (Chicago, IL) in Oct 2020

Interview

This was the toughest interview I've ever had. Although I give them credit for truly finding the best candidate, it was an interrogation. There was no conversation, no small talk and no sense of humor. They were trying to trick me with questions. I've always looked at Salesforce as my dream company. I researched and networked as much as I possibly could to get there. After this interview, I was extremely defeated.

Interview Questions
  • What are some soft skills you're working on? What do you think will be the hardest part of this job? How do you prospect? (in response to my previous answer) - if I saw that as a red flag, how would you respond?
