Application

I applied through college or university – interviewed at Oracle.

Interview

Three phone interviews with Sales Managers from across the U.S. None from the office I was going to work in. Very disjointed process with almost no follow up. Did not know if I was moving along in the interview process, and then would randomly be contacted to set up an interview. After third interview was not told next steps, but received email containing offer about a month later.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I went to my school's career fair and met three employees from Oracle. I was contacted by a college recruiter within the following two weeks and went through three different interviews. The first interview was over the phone with the college recruiter and was extremely basic. The second interview was over the phone with a sales manager and the questions were very similar to the first interview but with a little more depth. The final interview was in person, on Oracle's campus, and was with another manager. The final interview felt more like a conversation than anything. I was asked one or two situational questions (what would you do if...?) but overall, the questions were basic sales questions.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview

    I started the process by networking with Oracle recruiters at campus events. I submitted my resume in November and received an email from a recruiter requesting a phone interview after our winter break. I then had a second interview via phone, and then an in-person meeting. It was a straight-forward interview process, most of the questions were behavioral.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Oracle in February 2014.

    Interview

    The whole process took 1.5 weeks. I met with a recruiter at a job fair, interviewed with her the following day, and then interviewed with a manager two days later. I received my offer four days later. The questions were very straightforward - Oracle seems to be using the schools they recruit at as their screen, so they stick to behavioral questions. Be ready for why Oracle, why sales, and standard behavioral questions. They are, however, very disorganized in the hiring process (i.e. I received a "second" offer two days after the first) - their system has some bugs. Try to talk to the recruiters to be sure you're both on the same page.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    I was unwilling to take a sales job where you don't meet with clients - this is exclusively over the phone. I also was unwilling to take a job that wouldn't tell me my location until after I had accepted.

    Interview

    The first interview was by phone and very basic. I was then passed to the Regional Sales Manager where the position was discussed in more detail. It was all around a good experience.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Oracle in October 2013.

    Interview

    Applied through a University recruiter and the process to less than a week. Having graduated from a top 5 university, it seemed extremely easy to get this job - almost too easy.

    Interviewed with a recruiter for 15-20 on campus, then moved to an interview on-site at Oracle. Once onsite, I interviewed with a manager who asked me basic questions about my resume and background. Nothing too difficult. From that 20 min "interview" I was moved on and offered the position.

    There isn't any negotiation for base salary.
