    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in December 2013.

    Interview

    Couple of phone screen followed by a day long in person interview with various members of the team at HQ. The two phone screens were progressive mainly to wed out false positives. The in person interview covered CS concepts and domain specific knowledge broadly. Salary offered wasn't attractive and refused to negotiate.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 8+ months. I interviewed 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.
