Difficult Interview

Principal Member of Technical Staff Interview

Principal Member of Technical Staff
Redwood City, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Oracle.

Interview Details – Had an initial phone screen with the recruiter and set up a phone screen with the hiring manager. The hiring manager loved to hear himself talk so that made it quite easy. Invited for a face-to-face interview but that particular group's interview process was a little different. They prefer to have the candidate give a presentation on their topic of choice. Confirmed the topic was okay with the hiring manager. When I came into present, interviewed with 4 other people and was NOT given an opportunity to present my slides or materials, only to whiteboard. As they said, they preferred if I discussed from memory. Alrighty then!

I felt like I did well enough to advance, however, was not given an opportunity to go to the next round, which was unfortunate but perhaps they already had a finalist in mind.

Social Media Manager Interview

Social Media Manager
San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Oracle in January 2014.

Interview Details – I applied for the job and a couples week later the recruiter called to set up an interview, from there I spoke with the hiring manger and then the rest of the team. The process seemed a little disorganized for such a large company. Once I spoke with the recruiter, it was all in the hiring managers hands. The hiring manager was a really nice person but you could tell they were very busy and didn't have a lot of time to dedicate to the interviews. Once I interviewed with the hiring manger then they wanted me to speak to the team I would be working with. I ended up having to set up all these calls and felt like I was somewhat of a bother to these people but they were super nice once I was able to get them on the phone. All the interviews went really well. Once they were done I had to continue to do the follow-up and finally was told that they went with an internal candidate. I would never have known if I had not followed up with the hiring manger (multiple times). I was obviously bummed I did not get the job but the level of disorganization and how hard I had to work to get the interviews made me a little nervous.

Solution Consultant/Sales Consultant Interview

Solution Consultant/Sales Consultant
Redwood City, CA

I applied through other source and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Oracle in June 2013.

Interview Details – Recruiter reached out to me via Linkedin there were two position up for offer but no job description qualification or skills etc. i emailed recruiter I will be interested in Sales and not in any technical role. Never got a chance to talk to recruiter, that was red flag already. She scheduled an interview with Hiring manager, had a good discussion with Hiring Manager, mostly on roles and responsibilities and my interest. There were multiple interviews scheduled following my call with HM. 2 Phones and 4 in person in 4 different days. Interview with Director (4th in person) was final from my side. seems like he was not prepared, He asked about my knowledge with Oracle products and emphasis importance of Oracle product knowledge for the role. He is with oracle for 18 yrs and when I asked, yet he did not know whats adoption rate for Oracle's Exadata or NOSQL products, quite ironic. I thought interview with director would be final one and they will make decision yes/no , but he wanted me to talk to a Solution architect as well. I thought they should have had me talk to Soln architect prior to meeting with Director rather than later. Besides it seemed the Sales director did not plan well for the interview. I made my mind to declined to pursue further due to mismtach of skills. I had good conversation with rest of oracle's team, upbeat and enthusiastic, I was interested until I met the director.
