Very Easy Interview
Interviewed at Oracle
Interview Details – I went to an on-campus interview session where I met the recruiter and won a raffle for $500. I then had one behavioral phone interview with the recruiter. He talked the whole time, and after the interview, he basically told me I was hired and that I would be receiving an email within the week with some paperwork. Definitely the easiest interview process I've ever had.
Interview Question – None. The recruiter talked the whole time. Answer Question
I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Oracle.
Interview Details – The interactions between recruiters and management was shaky at best. Most of the follow up was done on my part. My offer letter was delayed by 3 weeks because it was caught up in some internal approval process.
Interview Question – What are your weakest qualities? Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Oracle in February 2014.
Interview Details – The whole process took 1.5 weeks. I met with a recruiter at a job fair, interviewed with her the following day, and then interviewed with a manager two days later. I received my offer four days later. The questions were very straightforward - Oracle seems to be using the schools they recruit at as their screen, so they stick to behavioral questions. Be ready for why Oracle, why sales, and standard behavioral questions. They are, however, very disorganized in the hiring process (i.e. I received a "second" offer two days after the first) - their system has some bugs. Try to talk to the recruiters to be sure you're both on the same page.
Interview Question – None - very straight forward Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I was unwilling to take a sales job where you don't meet with clients - this is exclusively over the phone. I also was unwilling to take a job that wouldn't tell me my location until after I had accepted.

Interview Details – Very professional and quick process. I had 3 conference calls with various managers that were set up over 2 days. On the 3rd day I was told to fly to DC for a F2F with a couple other folks. Once that was done the HR team called me and said that they would be giving me an offer contingent to my background checks etc. That entire process lasted about 3 weeks and an offer was made.

Interview Details – Was recruited via LinkedIn. Was recruited by Workday at the same time. Two completely different experiences. Oracle had the recruiter interview me by phone first. Next came a short interview with my potential manager. Each interview was maybe a half hour. Finally they flew me out to Atlanta to interview with another manager and the director of consulting. I was required to give a 15 minute presentation just to make sure I was up to the task, and to check my delivery. They told me if there was an offer it would come in a couple weeks, which was nice because they didn't leave me hanging. Two weeks later came the offer, which I accepted.
