    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Bangalore
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bangalore
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Salesforce.com in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    All rounds where Telephonic and one was video conferencing
    1. HR will and will ask and check the basic requirement
    2. Technical Call , The Manager will call you and will check your skill set and Flexibility
    3 Technical Call 2, The Senior Manager will call check for further skill assessment and cultural Fit
    4. Director will call and will take the final round
    5. I was lucky i must say because I got an opportunity to talk to the CIO of the company for my final round as in most of the rounds I received positive feedback.
    6. One Video Conferencing round would also be there over skype

    Overall they look for , How interested the candidate is , his flexibility and cultural fit. It was a awesome experience and one of the best and dream company to work for. Being a product based company the salary would very good and you will not be able to say NO :)

    However the company is still developing in India and due to lot of management changes sometime they dissolve the team and ask there employees to leave by giving some compensation. Job stability and security is a Issue there . I am one of the person who has witnessed this and also faced this , it took pretty long time for me to take up a new job :( and I had a lot of commitments and responsibilities to fulfill

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Salesforce.com in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview consisted of 2 phone calls: first with the recruiter for an initial screening and then a couple days later a group phone interview with the team. Questions were basic, mostly behavioral, and gave me a sense of what to expect from my experience/team. My 2nd phone call was rescheduled in the last minute but the open and honest conversation I had with the other team members afterwards made up for it.
