I applied through college or university and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Oracle in March 2012.
Interview Details –
1. Applied a researcher position through my university career center.
2. One recruiter emailed me that I was approved by VP as a qualified candidate (I had no idea what it meant) and distributed my resume to hiring managers who are interested.
3. One hiring manager contacted me for a phone interview regarding a hardware engineer position.
4. Phone interview was short and easy. Then I was invited for an onsite interview.
5. In the meanwhile, the recruiter initiated a background check for me (I had no idea why he initiated one so early).
6. On-site interview was easy. Several one-on-one interviews with hiring manager, and other engineers in his team. They also gave me a lab and campus tour.
7. After around a month, I was invited for a second on-site interview with higher management and other senior engineers.
8. The hiring manager promised me to make a decision after one week. But after one month, he still didn't have an answer for me.
8. The process took a long time. During the wait, I followed up with the hiring manager several times and he kept expressing his interests in me, but just can't give me an offer due to some internal issues that I don't really understand. I was left hanging in the wind for a long time and they still haven't made the decision yet. I don't wanna wait anymore and would treat it as a rejection and move on.
9. I still don't receive the refund of my travel expense as of yet.
I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Oracle in February 2012.
Interview Details – Oracle college recruiting HR contacted me stating that I had been selected to explore employment opportunities with Oracle (I did my undergraduate in electrical engineering). I interviewed with several different groups on the phone and was flown out for an on-site interview with said groups. There were a few technical questions (transmission line/EM theory, fourier transforms, etc.) to see what I knew, but they mainly asked behavioral based questions/to explain my resume. It was basically to see if I was a match for what the groups were looking for; they already seemed to know I was competent, which was really refreshing. The building was fantastic, the people were very, very smart and friendly, there was free juice/soda/coffee/tea for all employees, and there were no cubicles - just offices! I got a formal offer for a hardware engineer position - board design - about one week later.
Interview Question – On a PCB, what could contribute to signal loss while traveling down a transmission line? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – The offer exceeded my expectations, so I did not negotiate. Since the company is so large, there is little room to negotiate benefits, bonuses, etc.
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in November 2011.
Interview Details – I talked to the manager at the career fair and we found that my interests aligned with what his group does. I apparently stood out, because I got a follow up phone interview, where we talked more about what his group did and I elaborated on my resume. After that, there was an on-site interview that was mainly them trying to see if I was a good fit for the group or not - no real technical questions. Then came the offer.
Interview Question – Suppose we have a signal going across a board. As process technology shrinks, what problems do we run into with signal integrity? What are some ideas you have to combat this? Answer Question
