The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Oracle.

Interview

The communication with my recruiter made this process efficient over the 2 month process. Initially there was a group interview information session at a local hotel where they provided appetizers. After that there was a phone interview, two separate on site interviews with two different managers as well as a final phone interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Oracle in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was very straightforward. I had an on-campus interview that took roughly 30-45 minutes, and was very straightforward. I explained that I'm interested in moving on to a sales role, and I tried to come off excited about sales. The hiring manager and I walked through my resume and she told me a lot about the position.

    Then, I had a phone interview about a week later that was also easy. Simple questions about my interests, what I'm looking for, etc. Finally, I had another on-campus interview with a former BDC, and we talked about the position, why I would be a good fit, etc. The next day, I got a phone call with a verbal offer. The written offer came about two weeks later.

    Straightforward process for me, and the recruiters do an excellent job making sure all your questions are answered. They got me in touch with other BDC's just so I could chat with them to get more perspective on the position. The hiring manager was also VERY helpful in getting me the location I wanted.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing hard in any of the interviews. Walk through resume, why you want Oracle, BDC, etc.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Oracle in November 2014.

    Interview

    Applied via campus recruiting. Five interviews altogether (four over the phone and one in-person), three of which were with managers. After I accepted the offer, they ran a VERY detailed background check. The interviewers appeared to have been given a good deal of freedom in constructing their interviews (e.g., some were friendly, others were impersonal, some were very talkative, others expected me to do most of the talking), so the process depended to a significant degree on compatibility between myself and my interviewer. Also, they mentioned a few times that they admired my GPA (3.62), so candidates with similar GPAs may be treated favorably compared to those without.

    Interview Questions

    • "Let's say I hire you today. It's your job to generate new business over the following two weeks. I'm not giving you any further instruction. You can use your computer and phone. How would you proceed?"   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Oracle in October 2014.

    Interview

    I applied on LinkedIn, got an invite for a call within a week. The recruiter messaged me on LinkedIn and asked me to email her, I did. She asked me for a few time slots, and I provided her with them. She called me (7 minutes late) and explained the position to me. Then, she asked me to speak about myself and my experience. As I was about to tell her about myself, she cut me short by saying "I'm sorry I didn't realize you graduated a year ago. We're looking for someone with 2 years experience." I have 1 and 1/2 years of experience working full time and 1 and 1/2 continuous years of experience as an intern (working 30+ hours during the internship). She had my resume the whole time, contacted me on LinkedIn, and both places specified that I've graduated in 2013. How could she waste my time by not reading my profile or resume? Very disrespectful. I'm never applying to Oracle again.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Oracle in April 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview- the phone interview was very basic. Nothing out of the ordinary. The recruiter gave me an overview of the Business Development Consultant and explained to me how it was essentially a sales role. After discussing the position, the recruiter asked me questions about my resume and related experience. Interview lasted about 20 minutes. The recruiter was not charismatic when discussing Oracle which was a real turn off.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Oracle in March 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online through my university and was invited to a one-on-one interview with the senior director of business development on campus. He had me walk through my resume and explain what drew me to the (very diverse) internships I've had. He also asked about specific goals that I've set and reached as well as goals that I have not yet reached. We also touched on the classic "where do you see yourself in 5 years" type of question. The interviewer placed a big emphasis on how competitive the company/position are and how you must have a lot of drive to succeed in the position. He gave me a "homework" assignment that basically was what I'd write in a thank you note anyway, and I heard back within approx. a week.

    Interview Questions

    • There wasn't anything too unexpected. They really wanted concrete proof of drive/competitive spirit.   1 Answer
