Principal Member of Technical Staff Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Oracle.
Interview Details – Had an initial phone screen with the recruiter and set up a phone screen with the hiring manager. The hiring manager loved to hear himself talk so that made it quite easy. Invited for a face-to-face interview but that particular group's interview process was a little different. They prefer to have the candidate give a presentation on their topic of choice. Confirmed the topic was okay with the hiring manager. When I came into present, interviewed with 4 other people and was NOT given an opportunity to present my slides or materials, only to whiteboard. As they said, they preferred if I discussed from memory. Alrighty then!
I felt like I did well enough to advance, however, was not given an opportunity to go to the next round, which was unfortunate but perhaps they already had a finalist in mind.

GCO Inter Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Oracle.
Interview Details – The process began with a short introductory interview with a member of the campus recruiting team with Oracle. I then heard back from the campus recruiter within the next 2 weeks following the first interview to notify me that i had been selected for a secondary Skype interview.
The Skype interview went very well. The majority of the interview questions pertained to my previous experience with an emphasis on my skills related to the job at hand. The interview lasted for an hr and a half, and was relatively straight forward. Nothing was unexpected.
Two weeks later i heard back from the campus recruiter and was offered the job.

Quality Assurance Engineer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 months - interviewed at Oracle.
Interview Details – One 8 hour interview with individuals and teams totaling 13 people. Fairly standard industry questions, some light technical questions to ensure I could prove I was versed in linux, unix, windows, SAN & NAS systems. Some questions on pressure of deadlines, interacting with development. Standard questions on bug tracking tools & process. Not overly technical but not an easy interview either. Some people disinterested in interview, likely forced to do it. Others were quite well prepared and enjoyable to speak with.
Interview Question – Do you have a problem working with people from India? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – It took over 4 months after my interview to vet me for an offer. I turned down other contract opportunities while waiting, but in hindsight that may have been a mistake.
