    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 9+ monthsinterviewed at Oracle.

    Interview Details

    worse candidate experience ever! I applied online and I talked and met F2F the Sr Director Recruiting EMEA (hiring manager too). She was for both F2F and r tel-screening over 30 minutes late. I took one vacation day to go to F2F and then I never received a rejection / email / call back. I am still waiting for her rejection after 9 months..Hopefully Oracle does not treat it employees like they did with me as a candidate..I will never apply for Oracle again!

    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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood Shores, CA
    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.

    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.

    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.

    Performance Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Oracle in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Good follow-up and coordination by the Oracle recruiter. Interview was setup very quickly with the hiring manager after the initial contact.

    Interview with hiring manager was one of the worst interview experiences I've had in more than 20 years. Initially it was just her talking about her department and their responsibilities. I threw out a few questions along the way to get more info. She seemed more interested in hearing herself talk than really conveying the importance of the job. Later came the technical questions and admittedly I knew some and others I did not. This went on for about 15 minutes and then will only 3 minutes left in the 30 minute interview the manager very abruptly spouted out that her manager was on the other line and she had to go. Her parting words were that she would email me. If you guessed there was no follow-up you were dead-on the money.

    It felt so rude I was in shock. There was literally no time for me to even compose a response to that childish behavior.

    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

    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.
