    Oracle Applications Database Administrator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Clearwire (Kirkland, WA) in August 2010.

    Interview

    They called me out to interview. I was interviewed by a manager. He asked a really dumb question about creating table-spaces from a sheet he held.

    I gave his a brief description and also presented a number of task I perform for the Oracle applications database position. He had no idea what he was being shown and when he asked me what it is I not like in a job I told him working for a manager the does not know the technical part of the systems. He inquired further and I told him its difficult to work for a manager in IT when they make decisions on direction that make no sense when they should be delegating to one that knows what best in that specific technology
    - database - applications - servers - etc.

    That was the end of the interview - he did not want to deal with anyone who would present that type of challenge.

    Java Developer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Clearwire (Seattle, WA) in January 2010.

    Interview

    I had one interview over the phone, and it took a little over an hour. Basic Java questions (algorithms, data structures, inheritance, polymorphism, keywords, data types), as well as some questions about web services, ORM, dependency injection, Linux, and SQL. I was honest about my experience and knowledge, and my interviewer kept his questions in-line with my knowledge boundaries.

    The interview was going well, so he told me about the technology stack and goal of the project (what to expect - both good and bad).

    Interview Questions

    • What command would you use to determine if any Tomcat instances are running on a machine?   1 Answer
    • What is the minimum number of tables required to perform a SQL join?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I didn't need to negotiate. The offer was at the upper end of the range I provided.

    For those considering an offer: During and after my tenure there, I witnessed folks who had accepted offers only to discover their contract had been terminated the morning they showed up for work. Some of the salaries were very high. My point: Aim high, but don't commit fully until several butt-in-seat days have passed.

    Project Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Clearwire (Kirkland, WA) in October 2009.

    Interview

    My first "interveiw" was a phone interveiw with the hiring manager after I reached out to her directly. She was very respnsive to my email and we had a good discussion the day she replied to me. The next step was an in-person with her the next day.

    It took about a week for her to get back to me becasue she was finalizing her "short list" for the final interviews. I then had 6 in person interviews that took most of the morning.

    The interviews were pretty standard stuff with nothing out of the ordinary. I interviewed with fairly high up people and they mostly just seemed to be interested in how I would fit with the company and if I was really interested in the company/role. This may have been becasue the hiring manager was alreay sold on my experience and ability and wanted to get others involved from a culture and fit perspective.

    Overall it was a good experience.

    Interview Questions

    • If you were hired, what would you do during your first week to contribute to the team quickly.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The offer was good, not great and I tried to negotiate a little but didn't really come from a position of power given that I was unemployed at the time. Plus I'm not good at negotiating offers because I haven't done it very often in my career.
