Account Executive Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Accepted Offer

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Oracle.

Interview

The interactions between recruiters and management was shaky at best. Most of the follow up was done on my part. My offer letter was delayed by 3 weeks because it was caught up in some internal approval process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Orlando, FL) in June 2011.

    Interview

    This was an internal interview for a new position. I prepared a 15 page Powerpoint presentation and presented it to a group of VP, Senior Director and Director level staff via web presentation. I was allowed 20 minutes to review my Powerpoint to introduce myself. This was followed by a 30 minute Q&A session in which the panel asked me a variety of situational questions to understand how I would handle conflict, ambiguity and unreasonable customer demands. These two sections followed a short introduction section and we closed with a very short open Q&A. There was a follow-up discussion with one of the Senior Directors to address any followup questions I had. The interview was very structured and was via remote session. So, I did not have an opportunity to read any of the individual panel members. They simply graded my responses to their questions.

    Negotiation

    There was not truly a negotiation. However, my presentation included a section to describe the reason I had applied and what I hoped to gain from the position (after a slide describing what they would get by having me on the team). In this slide, I was honest and open about what I wanted and why I wanted that. They noted my honesty and openness and appreciated it. I believe my honesty and understanding of the inner-workings of the organization were key factors in their selecting me from 36 other candidates.

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Santa Clara, CA) in March 2011.

    Interview

    It was a long hiring process. The interviews were thorough, met with different managers and peers. It also included a presentation on a given product in front of a panel. Overall good experience except the approval process can take between 2 weeks to months depending on the priority of the job.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Oracle (San Francisco, CA) in February 2010.

    Interview

    A series of on-site interviews with hiring managers. The internal recruiters are on top of their game bringing in top candidates as Oracle is constantly hiring. It's important to develop relationships with these recruiters as much as with the hiring managers. One hiring manager was about to leave for another company, delaying the process, but the hiring manager put things back on track. My offer was communicated as a voicemail a week after my last interview.
