    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Salesforce (Dublin, Co. Dublin) in November 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online for the position of BDR in Dublin. I received an email the week after to arrange an initial phone call which was followed by a video interview with 2 of the hiring managers. The interview included competency based questions followed by a role play for which I was briefed by my recruiter. I was then invited to Dublin for a panel interview with 3 different hiring managers. The panel interview dug deeper into my previous experience and also included a mock presentation which as a follow up to the mock call int he previous round. I received an offer on the same day.
