    Business Development Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial contact was very easy to set up as I was dealing directly with a recruiter. Contact thereafter was a bit patchy and really only led anywhere when I pressed the recruiter for details. The "HR questions" weren't too bad and all of the people I spoke with were very personable when I could get them on the phone. The process was smooth in transitioning from one phase to another.

    Interview Questions
    • When I spoke with the regional manager, he asked me to make a small sales pitch for an item - which was surprising because he had just finished explaining to me that this was not a true sales role.   View Answer

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Oracle in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Telephone and 1st interview. They didn't provide any results over 1 month after interview. In addition, they didn't mention the salary rage. It seems they don't think about applicant's status and how to feel about the company.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was ridiculous. All they asked for was a resume and then I got an email back telling me that I had been selected into their internship program. A few weeks later I heard from them about choosing a group. Definitely not what I expected!

    As an intern, the offer was very generous. No negotiation necessary.

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Had 2 calls for their division Blue Kai. Had a technical exam. It was strictly Ruby coding. I started to try and solved it in Psuedo code and then was told that was the wrong answer. I got flustered because the interviewer was not patient and seemed to be on a deadline.

    Global Licensing Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Oracle in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    1. Email from Internal Recruiter in April 2014
    2. 1-hour interview with internal recruiter who acted very antsy that they had to get the position filled, this was in mid May 2014
    3. Did not hear anything until the beginning of June and after repeatedly emailing, I was given 1- day to be onsite. Never mind the fact I already have a full-time demanding job and cannot cancel scheduled meetings at the last minute. Finally the interview was put into place fort
    4. Phone interview set up - 30 minutes with senior manager (on the east coast) and director in san francisco. Then I was told it would be narrowed down and I would "hear back from them within a week". It has now been 8 weeks and I stopped emailing them 6 weeks ago after the director had promised I would hear something after July 4th weekend. It is now August 13th and they have disappeared.
    Not impressed and extremely disappointed with how I was been treated. I felt the job is completely what I wanted and ironically, I worked with Oracle at my previous company. If this is honestly how they treat their candidates, I will never apply again.

    Business Development Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview- the phone interview was very basic. Nothing out of the ordinary. The recruiter gave me an overview of the Business Development Consultant and explained to me how it was essentially a sales role. After discussing the position, the recruiter asked me questions about my resume and related experience. Interview lasted about 20 minutes. The recruiter was not charismatic when discussing Oracle which was a real turn off.
