    Business Development Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed 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).

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Oracle in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Absolutely ridiculous....had to do like 5-6 interviews on two separate occasions for two different roles. Both times said great interview and indicated I would be getting an offer but did not in the end. The recruiter was either over worked or didn't care and gave me wrong info to present on to panel.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed 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.
