Interview Questions

  • none, really, they just used it as an opportunity to rag on other companies   Answer Question

Negotiation

it took them one day to come up with an offer and two weeks to get it approved

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 8+ monthsinterviewed at Oracle in March 2013.

    Interview

    It started with the hiring manager asking me if I knew someone who might be able to do the skills that I actually had while at a conference. The problem was they actually didn't have the position available yet. It took them six months to open the rec. All of the interviews were over the phone (three) and all were with the hiring manager. I never had to talk to HR or anyone else.

    Interview Questions

    • How would I handle a particular type of project (that he knew I had never done)?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They asked me for my salary requirements and after describing generally how comp worked at my current employer, the hiring manager asked me if it would be easier if he told me what there maximum salary was. Once I had that info, it was easy to layout my requirements in a way that didn't make me look greedy but also acknowledged that this was a step up. I was also able to negotiate a stock option grant at offer, since I was walking away from my current employer's stock program.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6+ weeksinterviewed at Oracle (Austin, TX) in March 2009.

    Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Oracle (London, England (UK)) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I submitted an application via a Linkedin job posting, was in the top 10% that matched the skills compared to the rest of the lot. The recruiter contacted me and asked for a 15 minute chat, called 7 minutes late. While I was pretty curious to see what he will be able to squeeze into an 8 minute discussion, he said I was a very good match, the role reports to a US VP and he asked a single question, my current salary. When I politely declined to tell him and provided him with my salary expectation instead, he insisted to find out. As he couldn't, he tried to position the situation as if I was 'unable' to provide him with my remuneration details. I clarified as it was not an inability, but rather a 'preference'. He suggested there will be a face to face interview that I will receive the details for, but never received any further communication.
