    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Oracle (Chapel Hill, NC) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Met a recruiter at the campus job fair. Was sent a confirmation email for a phone interview with HR a few days later. A week later I had an interview with the HR rep I met at the fair. I went through a totla of three phone interviews on the phone. The first was with HR, second with a manager in Boston, and the third with a manager in Austin.

    I had an advantage because I knew someone that worked at Oracle and called them and got the DL on what the job entailed, etc. Then I talked to multiple people that worked for the company which really helped impress my interviewers. I was offered a job two days after my 3rd phone interview.

    Interview

    Three interviews (2 phone and one in person). I was contacted by a recruiter and they gave me information about the position and we set up a phone interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Oracle (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through university recruiting. I had two phone interviews and one on campus interview that asked many of the same questions - why sales? why oracle? They want to see that you are a competitive person and that you are genuinely interested in the position. They emphasized that they didn't want you to go through the process if you were unsure because many other students take the position and continue to look for other jobs.

    Principal Sales Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Oracle (Albany, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Great interviews with the hiring team, position had been open for 5 months and things were fast-tracked to get a resource on-site and contributing. However, after negotiating and receiving an offer from the hiring manager, the Recruiter wanted me to provide my salary in my current position before sending out an Offer letter. I declined and replied my current position has different responsibilities and the work is not related (current job is post-sales, new position is pre-sales). The Recruiter insisted and added how would it look if Oracle hired someone making $80K and this had to go through 5 levels of review? I gave the recruiter a range on my current salary and told her I needed to prepare for my call at 2:30. Later I received an email from the same Recruiter that Oracle declined to give me an Offer.

    Class of Program Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Oracle in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was simple and very easy. Most questions revolved around why you want to work for Oracle or why sales. Then they ask you a few questions about your resume and then a few situational questions about sales. Felt very much like a conversation.

    There were 3 phone interviews and one in person. They all pretty much asked the same questions even though all the interviewers were sharing notes, which was a little annoying. It usually took about a week after each interview to hear back from my recruiter about what the next steps were going to be. The whole process from initial contact (from a recruiter on LinkedIn) to receiving an offer was about 2 months.

    The beginning of the process seemed promising but by the end the whole thing was disorganized and frustrating. There seemed to be a lack of communication between the recruiter and the people I as interviewing with, so they had me interview more times than probably needed (4 total). In doing so, when they finally offered me the position, they also stated that my start date wouldn't be for another 3 months after what they initially told me.

    From what they offered me, and what I gathered is standard for all Class of (year) participants (at least in California), pay is base and commission. $45,000 base and $30,000 commission if you meet your target. Plus a signing bonus of $5,000 spread out over the first year. There are 5 weeks of training at the Headquarters in California, where for 3 of those weeks, lodging and meals are paid for by Oracle.
