    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Oracle.

    Interview Details

    Met with 3 Groups on 2 different days. Oracle people are very nice, from Recruiters to managers. They managed to create a pleasant conversational environment and never put pressure on you. Very few technical questions, the process is quite smooth. They arranged lunch with two alumni, very informative and considerate. But they raise a high bar for selecting candidates for onsite. I think this is why Oracle interview is easy but still can hire talented people.

    Interview Questions
    • It depends on groups that are interested in you. Some groups asks algorithm coding questions while others place more emphasis on communication and behavior. Anyway, you can assume nothing in advance, be prepared for data structure, algorithms and basic technical questions. After all, for a software engineer position, the responsibility is to write code every day.   Answer Question

    Two phone interviews and an on-site interview that was very intense.

As I said before, the on-site at HQ was intense, but I came out of it feeling great and confident in my performance.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview Details

    The Interview was in 3 rounds, 1st was telephonic 2nd and 3rd were Face to Face. Lot of Technical Questions . They are pretty much concerned about the dates and period you write in Resume . In 2nd round manager told me that they are very concerned on dates . I had written as Jan 2015 but it is actually Dec 2014. I didnt tell him in 2nd round nor I remembered what i wrote in my CV as i had drafted it before leaving my last job. Later when I saw it was Jan 2015. In 3rd round I told another manager that it is Dec 2014 and apologised to him saying I am sorry that it was a mistake.

    I have changed 3 jobs in 3 years due to personal issues. I am not sure if they would consider me . Profile is good and my interview also went well just that I made silly mistakes of all this.

    Business Development Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Oracle in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very straightforward. I had an on-campus interview that took roughly 30-45 minutes, and was very straightforward. I explained that I'm interested in moving on to a sales role, and I tried to come off excited about sales. The hiring manager and I walked through my resume and she told me a lot about the position.

    Then, I had a phone interview about a week later that was also easy. Simple questions about my interests, what I'm looking for, etc. Finally, I had another on-campus interview with a former BDC, and we talked about the position, why I would be a good fit, etc. The next day, I got a phone call with a verbal offer. The written offer came about two weeks later.

    Straightforward process for me, and the recruiters do an excellent job making sure all your questions are answered. They got me in touch with other BDC's just so I could chat with them to get more perspective on the position. The hiring manager was also VERY helpful in getting me the location I wanted.
