Business Development Manager Interview

Business Development Manager
Austin, TX

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Oracle in July 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online and had an initial phone interview with someone in HR. She asked how much I knew about Oracle and expected me to know a lot of specifics, not just a general overview. Asked me to walk her through my resume. Realized this job was not for me and declined a second interview.

Business Development Consultant Interview

Business Development Consultant
Austin, TX

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Oracle in December 2012.

Interview Details – Interviews
1. HR recruiter
2. Hiring Manager in another state
3. Hiring Manager in another state
4. Hiring Manager for the office I applied for

Before each interview I looked over my behavioral stories and reviewed the company's website. They always wanted to know what preparation steps I had taken and what I knew about Oracle. Mine was a fairly quick process because of hiring a group of college grads to start at the same time and I came into the applicant pool after the interviews started. I also stayed in touch with the HR recruiter to make sure I was moving through the process. They seem to like it when you reach out to them to show you want the job.

Also, review your resume because all of them seemed to focus on different areas of my resume when they asked questions (study abroad, scholarships, experience, and activities).

Business Development Consultant Interview

Business Development Consultant
Austin, TX

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Oracle in December 2011.

Interview Details – I thought I did not get an interview because it took a while for them to respond. Turns out they were interested, it was just the end of a quarter. Once I got the first interview, it was about 3 weeks until the second, but after that things really took off. The next interview was with the RM who was really kind and easy to talk. The third was with the District Manager and the next morning I received the job offer.

Interview Question – What would you do if you weren't the best at your job?   View Answer

Director Interview

Director
Austin, TX

The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Oracle in March 2009.

Interview Details – The process consisted of several phone interviews. First with one internal recruiter followed by a second interview with another internal recruiter. The next round of phone interviews were with various members of the business group. 3 in total. This was followed by one day of in person interviews in Austin TX with an additional 4 individuals. The process itself was not out of the ordinary. For the most part the interviewers just went through my resume but didn’t really ask many probing questions.
