Applications Engineer Interview

Applications Engineer
Redwood Shores, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Oracle.

Interview Details – I had an on-campus interview scheduled at the career fair, but it was canceled because the interviewer was sick. I was invited to fly out and interview on site anyway. It was a day-long affair, interviewing 7 times with either one or two people for 7 different teams. Questions were mostly technical, some coding and some brain teasers.

Interview Question – Oracle is mostly a Java shop, but one interviewer asked me to code insertion sort and a few data structures in C.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Offer terms ended up being non-negotiable, though I was able to extend the offer timing to evaluate other options (total of 1 month instead of 2 weeks).

Internet Sales Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee

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.

Interview Questions

  • Mostly behavioral questions. Some questions on team work (I had specified a lot of team project experience on resume), "Tell me about a hardship you experienced and how you dealt/are dealing with it". Questions on handling stress and being in competitive environment.   View Answer
  • On my resume, i had included a list of software (noting that he was familiar with it) that i had used throughout my undergraduate years. The interviewer picked one and asked me to deliver a 2-minute sales pitch as if i were trying to sell him the software. You don't have any constraints.   View Answer

Very Difficult Interview

Inside Sales Interview

Anonymous Employee
Reston, VA

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.

Interview Question – Honestly dont remember.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Take the salary or leave it.
