I applied through college or university and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Oracle in October 2013.
Interview Details – Connected with campus recruiting manager at college career fair. Recruiter emailed within a week to set up on-campus interview. First interview was a one-on-one with the recruiting manager from the fair. Very straightforward - asks you questions and types in your answer to the computer. There weren't any curveballs or strange questions out of the ordinary, and the mood was very relaxed. Towards the end it was a bit rushed, since I only got 30 minutes, and started a bit late, so i did not have time to ask my interviewer more than one question (I asked about the environmental difference between a company he had just left to come work for Oracle). I followed up with some further questions via email.
About a week later, I get an email to set up a second interview, this time a phone interview with a random regional manager. Theses tend to vary depending on who does your interview, as the manager is not given a list of questions to ask, so it would be harder to prepare for the phone interview. The best would be to put yourself in a happy-phone mood and sit somewhere relaxing. The phone interview lasted 10 minutes.
Very Difficult Interview
I applied online and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Oracle in September 2010.
Interview Details – The interview was a type of round robin experience. You would meet with 1 or 2 managers that were hiring; talk for 15-30 minutes for the interview and the move on to another manager with different hiring needs. The toughest guy who interviewed me...I was sure he wasn't going to offer me the position.

Scheduling was done quick . Location was easy to get to. The team was quick to respond. Be prepare to just listen and not ask any question. Some questions were totally irrelevant .
Interview Question – There was no difficult question. Most of the managers did not seem very motivated. They switched over from consulting and are happy with steady check. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – Offer was 10k less than original offer. They like to play dodge ball. I accepted the original offer and they came back and said sorry we didnt realize we could not pay you that much. We have to drop it by 10k. Seems like bait and switch. I declined because I found that process very unethical.
