Engineering Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Redwood City, CA
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Oracle in February 2009.

Interview Details

Brutal. The initial interview steps (phone conversation with manager, tech screen on phone, in-person meeting with manager) was easy (too easy, imho), and offer step was fine, but then it took nearly a month to get final approval for the position (it has to be approved at every level of management, even up to Larry Ellison!).

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview Details

    First phonecall with HR is only to check your CV positions. If there is a match with a job you will be related to the hiring manager.

    First face to face appointment was really easy more like an "I want you know" Chat. The second interview was even harder with "what would be if" questions.

    Interview spanned for a period of 45 minutes.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a day - interviewed at Oracle in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    at first there was an online exam and the results were out after almost a month. the interview section consisted of a technical interview first,and those who cleared it were good to go through for the h.r interview. for me the tech was the best one i have ever had i was really having a good time and it lasted almost 40 minutes. i must say it was part tech n part hr. the last hr interview was however not so good, it was very short and the interviewer didn't seem to pay much attention to what i was saying. either way at the end of the day everything worked out and here i am :)

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Oracle in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    I got a phone call from a recruiter who arranged an onsite interview a month later. The recruiter did not ask any questions but my background and interest. For the onsite interview, there are some behavioral questions. Most of the time, they introduce what the group is mainly doing. Some C/C++, operating systems, and brain teaser questions.
