Hardware Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Oracle in December 2013.
Interview Details – The campus recruiter distributed my resume to several hiring managers and within a week I got phone calls from several managers. They all basically told me about what their group does and learn about my technical background. Then if you show interest in their positions they will tell recruiter to arrange an onsite interview. During the onsite they didn't ask too much technical questions but just talked to you further by introducing their group and asking more details about your phd work and course work.

Hardware Developer Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in May 2013.
Interview Details – The interview process is long and slow overall. Went through about 5 phone interviews in a span of about 4 weeks. First phone screening was with HR, then hiring manager, then a bunch of other senior engineers and finally an on-site interview with 4 different engineers (some of which I've spoken to on the phone before). Still a couple of weeks to wait for the approval from upper management after the unofficial acceptance from the hiring manager. A background check was also performed.
Interview Question – No tricky questions overall, most stuff can be found online. Very typical entry level engineering questions such as solving a circuit using KVL/KCL, simple MOSFET applications, simple flipflop applications, draw a simple state machine, and demonstrate basic understanding of circuit boards. Answer Question

It took 3 months from the start of interview to geting offer letter, and requires good amount of patience to complete whole process of hiring.
Interview Question – Nothing special in their interview questions. View Answer
Supply Chain Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Oracle in June 2011.
Interview Details – The group I interviewed with was very friendly and made it easy to feel comfortable with. The interviews were more of a chance for both parties to get to know each other a bit, rather than a drilling of questions about my resume. There was a phone interview with the director, a panel interview with the team, a 1:1 interview with a more senior level group member and then lastly a 1:1 interview with the director.
