    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Principal Member of Technical Staff Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Interview Details

    First step in the process was an informal meeting at a college fair. Soon after was in touch with a recruiter for a phone interview and follow up in person interview. Overall process took about two months from first contact to through the door interview. Everyone I dealt with in HR and through the interview process was very nice.

    Reasons for Declining

    Very long commute was a major issue, took an offer with a smaller growing company much closer to home.
