    Interview Details

    I was recruited out of college and the interview what some what simple. Oracle began a new sales hire training program. I think the main thing that the recruiter was looking for is a personality. Oracle taught us all the fundamentals in the 8 week program. We just need to ready for it.

    The people interviewing you are serious. Very intelligent and all successful sales people. They will challenge you and poke holes in your answers. It's up to you to hold your ground and be confident in what you're saying. Every division is different, but your second interview will be your toughest and require your absolute A game.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    Your website does not allow a person to go back past 2009, so I will correct that to 2006, since nothing has really charged in the interview process at Oracle.

    I had tracked down the name of an internal recruiter and it took over 2 years to get in. In fact, the same recruiter had called me back after having landed a role with another software company and after being there only a little over a year. So, although I checked phone interview, that was only with an HR recruiter, the next step; was to come in and meet a Regional Manager for a discussion. The questions focused on how I prepared for the interview and what I new about Oracle and my general history. Lasted only about 45 minutes then I was called back in two days by the recruiter, sent a 10 page presentation template and asked to fill it out. The presentation if one is familiar with the industry is not bad, two or three business problems, how you would solve them. However, when I was scheduled to come in and do the presentation there was a 5 person panel which included the same Field RM who interviwed me, 2 people from what I call Pre-Sales (At Oracle they are called "SC's" Sales Consultants, there was GVP and a VP there as well.

    The only surprise, which I considered a good one was the VP who I came to know well after accepting the offer was what he sked: "How do you translate the benefits you have put together so well, which do solve the customer's problem," into a dollar value that might mean something to the customer. My reply was simply: Benefits are translated to dollars and part of an overall business case, clients do not buy benefits, even if on the surface they solve a solution, there must be hard ROI. I then asked if they would like me to construct a mock business case. They say, no, thank you, I noticed the RM smile a bit and the next day I received a call with an offer.

    Negotiation Details
    I cannot disclose numbers, this would betra an NDA, but I will say Oracle pays lower than most companies, but there is a reason for this. A person gains a great deal of knowledge on a variety of Applications and Technology products and their benefits are second to none. Also, they do not toy with non-producers and most employers know if you have made it at Oracle more than 18 months, you're very successful at what you do.

    The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Oracle in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    Various interviews 1/1 and group.
    Relatively informal format, but thorough process enabled hiring managers to get 360 degree view on the candidate.
    Cross functional reporting strucutres means one has to interview with line managers (direct and n+1) and dotted line amnagers, as well as HR/Recruitment.
    Oracle will pay premium if an account manager has proven established relationships with target customers.
