Joining SFDC in a week (in Dallas)- What to expect in the orientation? Where does it happen? How comprehensive is it (no. of days, etc.)?

Miss you dear here😑


Me too :)

What do you mean by orientation? The first day or your ramp? The former is like any other company, the latter is role-specific.


Everyone goes to HQ for a more formal induction called Becoming Salesforce. This should be within your first month. Your first day will be what SSE1 mentioned below, typical of most companies. Depending on your role, you may also attend a week long bootcamp at HQ as part of your ramp. Without info on your role, I can’t tell you anything about your ramp process.


OP: Mind sharing your new title? Do you perceive it as a level match/over/under as compared to your SM level in consulting?


What role did you take at Salesforce or what type of role? Each division does it’s own stuff.

Yep, you don’t have enough information for us to help you here. Day 1 is the same across the org. They fill you up with some like SFDC koolaid, you get your tech, you get lunch with your team...but ‘ramp up’ can be anything. Some people take days, SE’s have a 6 month tamp etc

Thanks guys for all the inputs. Joining as Sr. Program Architect in CSG.

Are you responsible for giving performance feedback? Avoid giving personality based feedback. Examples include telling an Asian person they are too quiet/shy or telling a Black person they are agressive/abrasive. DO NOT DO THIS. It clearly represents bias in Performance Management. Performance feedback should be tied to business outcomes with clear examples of what the person does well + how they can improve.


Hi Fishes,

Does anyone have tips for the structured interview process? I’ve done my research but am not getting past the first round. My credentials must be acceptable if I’m being invited to interview at all. Since post-interview feedback isn’t provided, I’m sort of grasping at straws here!

Not sure if this is the right bowl but I am slightly concerned that a friend has started taking steroids over quarantine. He has always had a strict bodybuilding routine and diet. Started lifting 7 years ago and suddenly gained 20lbs of muscle and got super cut in ~4mo even with gyms closed in LA. Also needs viagra on a regular basis now. He claims the only thing he’s changed is starting IF but I’m not buying it... he keeps saying I wouldn’t know because I’m F and our bodies are different.

Ever since I got fired recently from a job. I have found that I just don't have the same passion and flair like I used to. I used to be so bright eyed and fluffy tailed, full of vigor and ready to tackle any challenge. Even going so far as to stay up 22-23 hours to complete tasks 3 days out of the week. That's how badly I believed in what I was doing. I learned everything in a month and worked my ass off. But hard work wasn't enough. They chopped me off and I've never felt the same ever since.

Outside of your day job, how do you learn the high level technical aspects of salesforce? I’m a functional lead at a big 4 consulting company on a long term project (more strategy and PM work) but want to have better technical understanding. I don’t want to be a tech lead, but enough to have educated conversations with clients (architecture, data model, integrations, privacy, refresh specifics, etc), and potentially work towards Solution Architect. Any advice would be highly appreciated!
