Tips/questions to prepare for Technical screen interviews for Salesforce Admin role?

A few topics you will likely need to know for the interview process:

- When and how to use junction/relationship objects to enable a many-to-many relationship

- Solid grasp of OWDs, Profiles, Permission Sets, etc

- General familiarity with formulas, validation rules, roll-up summaries, process builders, and possibly flows (not always an expectation depending on YOE, but is always a plus)

- Awareness of standard objects and their purpose, and ability to identify use cases for custom objects

Assuming you already know your stuff, I have great news— I’ve had quite a few admin interviews and none of them have been particularly intense! You can give yourself a huge edge by relaxing and being yourself.

As far as questions go, things that I tend to ask are:

- What is the standard devops practice at the company / how are deployments between orgs handled? (For example, my company uses Gearset, but others may use change sets or even a hybrid approach between different deployment tools).

- What does the company’s environment look like? Light versus heavy customization? Any custom development to be aware of? Integrations?

- How many people are on the Salesforce team? Will I be working alone or as part of a team of admins/developers?

I hope this helps! Good luck with your interviews!

Is it common in the industry for licensed insurance agents to not get any commissions on a referral in which you personally write the policy? Ex: If a current client refers a prospect to our team, I would not receive commission. Additionally, if I write a policy for friends/family I would get a small incentive but it’s a fraction of the commission producers make.
Management is considering changing this going forward. However, I’m not sure how I should react if they keep things how they are now.

Does anybody pay their candidates for going through technical tests? We have a take home test that can get pretty long (10 hours in average) and so we are thinking on giving some sort of compensation but we don’t know how (gift cards, cash? Do you transfer to the candidates account or do they sent an invoice?) and especially how much. Any insight will be greatly appreciated!

Highly recommend learning your attachment style and emotional mindfulness before stepping into a new relationship or trying to date.
