    Sales Representative Interview

    Interview Details

    Interview process took about three months and I had five interviews. They ask very simple behavioral questions but the job is extremely competitive so you have to be creative with your answers. Basically they want to know if you are a good communicator and a hard working person. You don't have to be a business major to get the job.

    Got the job through University recruiting. Process was very smooth and painless. Felt cared for and values throughout and enjoyed getting the job in the end! Interviews were not too tricky and pretty comfortable but still professional. Easily the best hiring process I've ever experienced.

    Senior SQA Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    My company was acquired by Oracle, so I did not actually have an interview with Oracle. However, my understanding is that Oracle traditionally has hired new college grads only from a handful of select universities. That list has been growing over time, and management has pushed to widen the list even further.

    Software Engineer Interview

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Oracle in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    Rather non-technical really... to the point that it makes me question their hiring process and the caliber of the people I'd be working with at this corporation. Most companies I know of that hire decent people vet them through a series of interviews. I literally just had one in-person ~somwhat technical interview (design a system, no coding). They were nice enough to fly me out to san jose for the interview so I'd say overall the experience was positive.

    Interview Questions
    • Explain how you'd design a large scale cloud system. What things would you take into account, scalabilty, backups, sharding, etc. I told him what I knew from my limited experience of scaling, and he helped me out in certain places.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Company didn't seem like a good fit. Uncertain about caliber of co-workers. Employees at the office I interviewed at were in cubicles, seems boring.

    Lead Engineer Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Initial contact with their recruiter and had a phone call to discuss position and expectations on both sides. Called by the Project manager for a phone interview to asssess interest by both parties. Then, scheduled an onsite, face-to-face interview with Director, Project Manager and Technical Leads in one day. Interviews focused more on benefits and job requirements/description. The technical panel interview is the longest but the questions were pretty much vanilla basic Java questions.

    Interview Questions
    • Boardwork demonstrating algorithm conceptualization and implementation.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Better offer elsewhere. Might be piegion-holed into Oracle only technologies.
