Just as important as the other factors in determining where one might spend the majority of their free time, is the income one draws from their sales. For intern salary, the best way to look at that is to look at the number of times you have to call up customer service for help with a problem.
The number of times you call customer service is the number of calls made to the customer service number you’ve used. But that’s really just the tip of the iceberg. Every time you call customer service, you’re also calling people who have already called customers service in the past. This means you can create a pretty strong correlation between the calls you receive, and the time you spend on customer service. And that’s not even getting into the time you spend on the phone talking with potential customers.
The best way to find out what someone else is earning in customer service is to ask. All of the numbers in the list below are from the United States, but there are a few from India and China as well. The salaries are all based on the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for that country.
Salesforce is a pretty popular recruiting tool, and the intern salary is the only one that is directly tied to a salary that’s actually made by a salesforce employee.
The average salesforce intern earns around $31,000 a year, which is $8 per hour to work 40 hours a week. Of course, these numbers are likely to change based on the market, the company’s culture, and how long the intern is actually there.
According to the most recent C-suite earnings report, the compensation of salesforce’s newest intern, Tania, is close to $100,000. She works 18 hours a week, but says that the company pays her overtime and holidays as if she was actually working a full-time job. That means Tania is earning around $200,000 a year.
In addition to that, Tania also gets a company car, a MacBook Pro, and a nice apartment.
Salesforce also takes care with their interns. They have their own lunch, have a good car in their garage, and send them to events around the country. The company also has a really good online learning program where the interns can build their resumes and get involved in the salesforce community.
I would say that this is the most underpaid salesforce intern I’ve ever seen. I’ve seen some people with more experience and a lot of good offers, but if you’re going to be getting paid this good, you shouldn’t be doing this.
Salesforce intern salaries are usually not that much higher than what a typical college student makes; a typical intern at Facebook gets atleast $30K. This is what a typical intern at Salesforce spends on food, beer, and other entertainment.
