    Business Development Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Oracle in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on LinkedIn, got an invite for a call within a week. The recruiter messaged me on LinkedIn and asked me to email her, I did. She asked me for a few time slots, and I provided her with them. She called me (7 minutes late) and explained the position to me. Then, she asked me to speak about myself and my experience. As I was about to tell her about myself, she cut me short by saying "I'm sorry I didn't realize you graduated a year ago. We're looking for someone with 2 years experience." I have 1 and 1/2 years of experience working full time and 1 and 1/2 continuous years of experience as an intern (working 30+ hours during the internship). She had my resume the whole time, contacted me on LinkedIn, and both places specified that I've graduated in 2013. How could she waste my time by not reading my profile or resume? Very disrespectful. I'm never applying to Oracle again.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Oracle in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Got an email from the recruiter (had submitted the resume during the career fair). HR provided a list of groups out of which we can select any number depending on our interest. Interviewed with 4 groups (1 hour 30 min each) back-to-back and got an offer from one of the managers on that day itself. That turned out to be best possible scenario since I wanted to work with that group right from the day I had chosen the group as one of my potential interests. Questions involved identifying bugs in a code, deep OS questions, white-board coding. Rigorous but delightful.

    Negotiation Details
    I got a more than expected offer and did not wish to negotiate on that considering the potential growth in the team.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Oracle in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Three rounds of interviews: 2 in person interviews and 1 phone interview. One interview was with the HR recruiter and the others were with Sales Reps. The first interview with the HR recruiter was a general interview asking basic question (Tell me about yourself. Why are you interested in this position? Tell me examples of times you were involved in sales? If not that's okay. Why are you a good fit for sales?). The other interviews went into more detail but were similar to the first interview.

    Database Administrator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Oracle in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I first found out about Oracle job offers at my university's career fair. After giving them my resume there, they reached out to me (I did not apply!) and scheduled two phone interviews with me. These lasted about 30 minutes each and had both technical and behavioral based questions. After those, I received an email within a week inviting me to the Final Round interviews at their office in Reston. The day consisted of interviewees sitting in a conference room as they waited for their interview (the atmosphere is more relaxed than other places). During this time there was a written case portion that I had not known about coming into the final round. There were two interviews, one of which was job fit and technical while the other was behavioral. In a week's time I had heard back from the recruiter offering me a position.

    Reasons for Declining

    I had received other offers more suitable to where I wanted to take my career. The offer itself is very good. It was for $60,000 base AND paid overtime (average 25% on top) which is incredible as not many companies do now a day. Other perks were good as well.

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    I applied online and got an offer for onsite interviews within 2 weeks. The list of groups who were interested to interview me was given to me a week before my scheduled interview date. The onsite interview was with managers or team members within the group. The interviews for product manager positions were either behavioural or product based. The product based questions tested my knowledge on their current product, right from the product architecture to how it actually benefits the clients. The behavioural questions were the common ones that one can usually find on Glassdoor and other websites.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Oracle.

    Interview Details

    It took a long time to get contacted initially after applying. Once contacted, I had an initial phone screen with recruiter and with hiring manager. Went well so they scheduled additional phone screens with team members and brought me on site for face to face.

    After a single round of interviews, I was told they were extremely interested and wanted to extend offer. 2 weeks later, after background and reference checks, I received a fair offer - exactly what I had asked for.
