    Interview

    Initial communication was through an email inquiry and I was soon called by an Oracle recruiter. First and subsequent interviews were all face to face. First with two levels of managers and final with VP of Sales.

    • When faced with a highly challenging situations, what's your first reaction?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Negotiations can be difficult and I pushed back on the first offer. Now I wish I pushed back twice. Advice...get as much as you can upfront because raises are far and few between. If you're happy with your salary, then you'll be good. If you are just okay and think it'll grow over time...you will be highly disappointed.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview

    I came in for an interview on site after two phone screens. After meeting with a Sales Managers and having a normal and relaxed conversation, I was interviewed by the hiring manager and their superior. I was asked about acquisition strategy, implementation processes, and a bunch of other unrelated topics by the hiring manager. None of which related directly to an entry level salesperson fresh out of college.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Oracle (Bozeman, MT) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Slow response and little communication over interview process that lasted 3 months. Seemed like they forgot about candidates and then were in a panic to reconnect. I would suspect that they lose many candidates that take other jobs due to the time period from initial contact to final interview.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Oracle.

    Interview

    Three interviews (2 phone, 1 in-person): The first two are easy questions with one HR person and a BDR based in Boston. The final interview was on-campus with a VP of sales. The VP was perhaps the most cynical person I've ever met. I walked out of that interview disillusioned about the company culture and the job.

    Project Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Oracle (Seattle, WA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process started by connecting with recruiter on LinkedIn. The recruiter was very nice, well informed, and asked the right questions. Stated my skills are a great match to 2 different positions they were recruiting for. I applied to the positions and we went through a formal phone screen. The recruiter then forwarded my information to the hiring manager. The hiring manager said they would call between Monday and Wednesday. They never called so I reached out to the hiring manager for status. Was told the manager would call me sometime between Thursday and Friday. On Monday, without a call from the manager I called the hiring manager to decline the position. Felt that if the manager was not responsive in the hiring process that indicates the type of manager they would be. Disappointed as I am eager to work for Oracle and would love a PM position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Oracle (Denver, CO) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Presentation and Interview. The presentation was a mock scenario used to gauge your ability to effectively convey information about Oracle products and brief well. With the proper preparation, it's a great opportunity to impress hiring managers. The interview was more a follow-up to the presentation and didn't seem to be as important, as you had already had previous interaction with the manager.
