    Oracle Support Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Austin, TX
    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Emerson Process Management in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and heard back within 2 weeks. 2 different HR phone screens were completed within a week. The following week I visited the office for 4 in-person interviews (on the same day) with superiors and other team members. I received an offer roughly a week later. The interview process was very straight forward. Once they saw that I was qualified, it was really more them discussing the company culture and how things worked in their division to make sure it was a fit for both parties.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at Emerson Process Management in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Laid back but some of the interviewers did not seem to know what to ask - also, the questions that they did ask turned out not to be not too terribly relevant to the position itself.

    Principal Software Engineer Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Emerson Process Management.

    Interview Details

    I had an initial phone screen with the hiring manager for a senior software engineer position. He called me in for onsite. When I got there I was told that 2 different groups decided to interview me (pleasant surprise). I liked both groups. Met with 2 managers, 6 team members of which 2 guys took me to lunch. Most interviewers (1-on-1 interview) started with questions about background and then went into some technical details there on. There were few questions about dual core processors SMP, AMP, semaphores, mutexes etc. Another person asked some questions about C++ Object Oriented design (pseudo code - he didn't care much about actual coding). The HR promised to call and let me know in a week's time but it got delayed a bit because some people went on vacation. They finally came back with a better pay rate than I expected and higher position than I had originally applied for (I had to go an submit application for another position).

    Corporate Services Interview

    Interview Details

    I had a great phone interview, interviewer was warm, friendly and gave lots of information and asked me questions about my background and told me more about the position. My second interview was in person with a large group of people who asked me random questions in a rapid fire. Some of them appeared to be disinterested in the interview shortly after it began and others asked me the same question several times. I was interrupted several times while answering questions. The process was cold, unwelcoming, and abrasive.
