    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Oracle (Redwood Shores, CA).

    Interview

    I had an on-campus interview scheduled at the career fair, but it was canceled because the interviewer was sick. I was invited to fly out and interview on site anyway. It was a day-long affair, interviewing 7 times with either one or two people for 7 different teams. Questions were mostly technical, some coding and some brain teasers.

    Interview Questions

    • Oracle is mostly a Java shop, but one interviewer asked me to code insertion sort and a few data structures in C.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Offer terms ended up being non-negotiable, though I was able to extend the offer timing to evaluate other options (total of 1 month instead of 2 weeks).

    Very Quick. Applied online, recieved a call within 2 weeks. Had an interview within 2 weeks later. One phone screen and project. The phone screen was very simiple, basic OO prinicples, average quesitons. Things like design patterns, abstract class vs interface, just more like knowing vocab related to OO principles.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Oracle (Redwood Shores, CA).

    Interview

    It's simple. If you're a recent college grad, know this - Oracle only hires from the top 15 schools that are great in both ECE/CS curriculum. If you're not from the top 15, forget it. Also, historically only the top 1% (>3.90) GPAs get an on-campus interview call. Once you're on-site, it's a relatively easy process. Interview with 5 teams, pick your favorites. If there's a match, you're in

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview

    I appeared for the recruitment process through college campus hiring. We were around 500 people who appeared for the aptitude test. Oracle was hiring for 2 divisions. The top 70 For Oracle Applications and the next 150 for Oracle Financial Software Services (OFSS) . For Oracle Applications we had to appear for a written technical test whereas the OFSS shortlisted candidates directly proceded to interview. Out of these 70, 15 of us were shortlisted for the technical interview.
    Ultimately around 15 people were hired for OFSS and 2 of us for Applications.

    The key is to be honest and try to attempt whatever problems are asked. They are more interested in seeing your approach and attitude in the interview. It is alright if you do not know the answer as long as you give your best. Do not try to lie, be open about what you do not know. The aptitude tests cover your technical concepts and you will be asked about your approach in solving these problems during the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to optimize an algorithm which was extremely difficult. However, the interviewer seemed happy with my attempt.   Answer Question
