    Applications Sales Representative - III Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Oracle.

    Interview Details

    Had 2 phone interviews, the first being a pre-screener and the second being 3 hours of back to back interviews with ASM's. The interview process seemed quick and painless but be aware the background check is incredibly thorough and can take 2 to 3 months to complete. Worth it in the end though.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    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.

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Oracle.

    Interview Details

    5 interviews, 3 by phone. They don't often hire from the outside so take advantage if they are talking to you. Negotiate hard for a good base because it's impossible to change once you are in! Phone screen then phone 1:1 with my manager then his manager then presentation given to 3 people in sales org.

    I Was Interviewing for the Sales and Buissness Representative Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process began with a brief introduction and 15 minute conversation at a college career fair. I then had a 30 minute phone call with a recruiter. The phone interview asked you to explain your previous experience and go through your resumes, why sales, very basic stuff. Then I had a in person interview for about 30 minutes where the same questions were asked as the first phone interview and then got a verbal offer on the spot after.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Interview process took about three months and I had five interviews. They ask very simple behavioral questions but the job is extremely competitive so you have to be creative with your answers. Basically they want to know if you are a good communicator and a hard working person. You don't have to be a business major to get the job.

    Senior SQA Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    My company was acquired by Oracle, so I did not actually have an interview with Oracle. However, my understanding is that Oracle traditionally has hired new college grads only from a handful of select universities. That list has been growing over time, and management has pushed to widen the list even further.
