    Business Development Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dublin, Co. Dublin
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Salesforce (Dublin, Co. Dublin).

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of 4 rounds; 1st was a phone screening with a recruiter. This call is very much about you, your experience, why you think you would be a good fit for Salesforce. Heard back about a week later to schedule the next round. The 2nd round was a phone call with a senior recruiter. This was more about my experience, my knowledge of the company and AI /Big Data/ Internet of Things. (This is all on SF trailhead). Heard back about ten days later with the date for a video call. This was with two senior members of staff. I was asked about my experience, how I would sell Salesforce to another company and how it would benefit the company. I was asked to talk about my failures, achievements and my motivations. About two weeks later I got invited to the Assessment Centre for the day. This consisted of a business case study which I got a week before to prepare myself and then prepared and presented with two others on the day, and two face-to-face interviews with senior members of staff.
    The whole process was good. Everyone I met was so friendly. You do need to do a lot of research on the company, use trailhead to learn about the products and look at demos and customer success stories on the website and YouTube.
    Ask 3 or 4 strong questions at the end of each interview.
