    Good organization, the interview process was fun and talked with interesting people. The people were responsive on my emails and stayed engaged throughout the process. A little slow on the offer for fresh out of college people.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter reached out after about a week, initial interview was fine -- recruiter was very helpful and courteous. It was more informative than anything, a few behavioral questions asked, but nothing very tricky. The second interview was cancelled due to weather conditions. A manager then abruptly canceled the rescheduled interview. The campus recruiter apologized and stated would get back to me regarding a new interview time. That was the last I ever heard from her.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through Oracle page, and they contacted me right immediately like on that day which was scary for me. I got an e-mail with to complete some online test with 13 questions and they were on:

    25 questions:

    15 Analytical Multiple Choice Questions – focusing on sets, trend analysis, calculus, stats, etc.
    5 open ended basic SQL question.
    3 open ended database normalization question.
    1 Multiple Choice English language comprehension question.
    1 open ended language question (this part should be 200 – 300 words).

    The entire online assessment test was conducted through hackerrank.com and it was for 90 min.
    Personally I did not go and complete the Quiz within couple of day. I did take my time to prepare and I was right. It is a difficult test. I did use apps like ‘the impossible interview’ and ‘the aptitude interview’ from iTunes app store to prepare. They were a help.
