Inside Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood Shores, CA

Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Oracle.

Interview Details

Employee referral. One day later had a phone interview, followed by a 3 person panel interview the following week with the managers. The next week I got a call saying they were putting me through the workflow - which means they are hiring you assuming all goes well with the process. Took 3-4 weeks total. Interview was a little intimidating with 3 people. Asked mostly why sales, why Oracle, what-if scenarios and experience-based questions. First job out of college.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details
Barely a negotiation phase. They told me what I would get before I even had the offer. I had no experience so I couldn't negotiate.

    Interview Details

    First step in the process was an informal meeting at a college fair. Soon after was in touch with a recruiter for a phone interview and follow up in person interview. Overall process took about two months from first contact to through the door interview. Everyone I dealt with in HR and through the interview process was very nice.

    Reasons for Declining

    Very long commute was a major issue, took an offer with a smaller growing company much closer to home.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Oracle in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through USC and Interviewed through Skype. Recruiter looked disappointed with my face and answers, she ended the interview in 5 minutes and lied to me saying she would send my info to the hiring manager. I emailed her after a month of not hearing back. Never received a reply back. Definitely left a bad impression.

    The interview process was very simple. They recruited on my campus for the Oracle Sales Academy and I applied for a sales job through linkedin that was forwarded to the appropriate recruiter for my school. I had a phone interview for about 20 minutes and I was given an offer within a few weeks.
    The recruiter wanted someone who had a backgrond in sports, some internship experience, very competitive but outgoing. This experience was fairly consistent with the rest of the reps I went through the training with.

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Oracle in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I met the recruiter at the career fair and a few months later was contacted for a phone interview. After that I had once more phone interview and was offered the position in the next few weeks. The overall process was very easy and satisfying. Throughout my two interviews I focused on one project that I led and then on asking about their work-life balance.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Oracle in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Had an initial skype-phone screen which consisted of mainly experience related and work related questions. Some behavioral questions such as "What drives you to succeed?" were asked. After this phone screen I was forwarded on to a phone interview with a sales manager at one of the HUBs. Some technical questions were asked, but mainly again was behavioral and work experience focused. I believe they are really looking to see how much poise and control you have over a conversation, which is totally understandable based on what the job entails. All and all, it was a short, concise, and pleasant experience.

    Interview Questions
    • What are your strengths and what are your weaknesses? Believe me, if you aren't tuned up for this coming in...you can stumble or say something dumb. Besides, it is an introspective question that can be difficult to answer.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation for new grads isn't welcomed. I asked for a reasonable bump to cover the monthly expense of my student loans. They were not having it. However, I felt the base was fair and as long as I'm making a commission, I'll be just fine. Potential bonus commissions can be significant.
