Hardware Engineer Interview

Hardware Engineer
Santa Clara, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Oracle in December 2011.

Interview Details – Strange experience:
1. Applied a researcher position through my university career center.
2. One recruiter emailed me that I was approved by VP as a qualified candidate (I had no idea what it meant) and distributed my resume to hiring managers who are interested.
3. One hiring manager contacted me for a phone interview regarding a hardware engineer position.
4. Phone interview was short and easy. Then I was invited for an onsite interview.
5. In the meanwhile, the recruiter initiated a background check for me (I had no idea why he initiated one so early).
6. On-site interview was easy. Several one-on-one interviews with hiring manager, and other engineers in his team. They also gave me a lab and campus tour.
7. After around a month, I was invited for a second on-site interview with higher management and other senior engineers.
8. The hiring manager promised me to make a decision after one week. But after one month, he still didn't have an answer for me.
8. The process took a long time. During the wait, I followed up with the hiring manager several times and he kept expressing his interests in me, but just can't give me an offer due to some internal issues that I don't really understand. I was left hanging in the wind for a long time and they still haven't made the decision yet. I don't wanna wait anymore and would treat it as a rejection and move on.
9. I still don't receive the refund of my travel expense as of yet.

Finance Interview

Finance
Santa Clara, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in September 2008.

Interview Details – I was referred in by an employee who spoke highly of Oracle and thought I would fit in. While every large company has its issues with beaurocracy and politics, the people I met seemed to cut to the chase and, as long as you're in HQ, you can get involved in strategy and larger decisions. People worked hard and were in the office late.

The interviews focused on what I had done and was interested in doing and determining whether it would be a good fit. I felt like they were very interested in cultural fit which was a positive but the all the questions were very simple and didn't really focus on my capabilities and problem-solving capability.

Interview Question – Describe a situation where a project succeeded and one that failed and how you contirbuted to each.   Answer Question
