Oracle Pl SQL Developer Interview

Oracle Pl SQL Developer

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Opera Solutions.

Interview Details – Interview Process - I would consider this the worst interview process any company I have ever gone through. I have over 20 years in Development. First is a test - simple and specific but nothing that can't be figured out. Then I had 5 interviews. Each one was one to two weeks apart. They drag the process out so badly that you are totally discouraged by the time the last one is given. Each interviewer keeps asking the same technical questions that the other interviewer has asked. Also nobody speaks English. I had to keep asking what the interviewer had said. Finally I was told that by each of the other interviewers that I was an excellent match for the position. I get to the last interviewer who appears to hyped up on coffee, a long out series of technical questions that are long convoluted and disjointed about stored procedures. She appeared to be completely satisfied. I thought I had it in the bag but was informed 30 minutes later that I didn't have enough skills. This is weird 20 years experience an OCA and working on an OCP. I'm baffled. I would stay far away from this company as humanly possible.

Vice President, Business Development Interview

Vice President, Business Development
Jersey City, NJ

I applied through other source and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Opera Solutions in December 2011.

Interview Details – My former CEO recommended me to the sales EVP. He passed me to their in-house recruiter in San Diego. Recruiter had me write several papers on how I would sell a product from my former company to Opera's clients. I don't think the paper was ever passed to Opera. Following week, I flew to NJ; met many dept heads. Thorough. Great visit.

Interview Question – How to detect fraud for their marketing clients.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The salary and commission was actually very high, so I agreed that day.

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst
Jersey City, NJ

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Opera Solutions in September 2013.

Interview Details – Applied through college career posting. On campus first round and in-office final round; standard 2 half-hour interviews in each round. First round mostly behavior/fit questions with a bunch of brainteasers; second round all case questions. Interviewers are very nice and easy to talk to and questions very fair (in my opinion), but it took them an excessively long time to inform you their decisions (first round in early October, second round in late November, decision in early/mid January).

Business Analyst Interview

Business Analyst

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Opera Solutions.

Interview Details – Hiring through on-campus process. Two-round interview process with three interviews each.
First round is on-campus, second round in their office in Jersey City. They may take a while to give an offer after final round (up to 2 months for some people in my class...)

Typical consulting interviews - no surprise:
1) Personality interview (15 - 20 min)
2) Case study (15 - 20 min)
A brainteaser if time permits.

Research and Data Analyst Interview

Research and Data Analyst
San Diego, CA

Interviewed at Opera Solutions

Interview Details – Interview consisted of giving a technical talk about my previous research to a group of ~15 people, then 3 closed-door meetings one-on-one, first with a potential boss and secondly with two people who would have been peers. After interview, an HR rep told me by email that the feedback had been positive, but I didn't hear anything else back so I guess she was just blowing smoke.

Interview Question – Asked to solve a probability problem (find the probability of a false positive using detection software with a given fail rate and a population being tested with a given proportion of positives).   Answer Question
