I had applied for software engineer position in salesforce. I cleared round 1 of interview with hiring manager. I was told that for round 2 I would receive a hacker rank link and will have 3 hours to complete the test
So was wondering if anyone can share some info as to what is the format and which topics I need to focus
What would be the complexity level of those questions

    Just went through the same process with Salesforce a few weeks ago. Got a HackerRank exercise then was invited for on-site interviews. Here are the most important things to keep in mind:

    1. The problem will involve reading, possibly parsing, input and printing formatted output. You will have to write code to do this yourself and, while it’s not difficult, it will feel like you’re writing a small/complete utility rather than just solving a TopCoder problem.

    2. Use an actual IDE. The recruiter did recommend this in the email he/she sent me and I found it crucial. They don’t mind you writing your solution in an IDE then copy-pasting it directly to the web editor after you’re all done, which is going to make your life much easier cause you’ll need to debug and do some input parsing/output formatting.

    3. LeetCode didn’t have any questions tagged for SalesForce. But I found several of their interview questions, including the one I got on HackerRank, on Glassdoor in the interviews section on SalesForce’s page.

    4. Make sure you pay attention to how your code is organized. They want the code to be easy to understand and navigate. Feel free to add comments as needed. Well organized/structured code will make things easier for you anyways.

      Thanks a lot for this info. Just curious ,how is the round 3 (onsite ), is it mix of both technical and non technical ??

      No problem. It is mostly technical with a few behavioral questions, e.g. tell me about a situation where you had to make a trade off.

    Should be easy level leetcode or easier. Remember that you can google stuff during HackerRank tests as long as you cite your source. Most people don’t know that.

    Edit: by googling, I mean not copying code, but linking documentation on certain functions

    Definitely write lots of comments. If you’re able to accomplish the challenge, feel free to write a unit test or two - Salesforce emphasizes a lot on automation, and your interviewers will be impressed if you include that in your assignment.
