    Copywriter Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview

    After applying for the position I received this email: Thanks for your interest in the SF Copywriter position with Oracle Marketing Cloud. As a next step, we'd like to learn a bit more about you, your experience, and what you're seeking. Please reply to this email message with answers to the below queries. Please also attach the most recent version of your resume to your email reply. Name: Phone: Email: Mailing Address: Portfolio Website: LinkedIn Profile: Current Employer and Role: Previous Employer and Role: Years Experience: Education: Describe for me the day-to-day in your current role: What is your experience with email?: What is your experience with m obile?: What is your experience with s ocial?: What is your experience with w eb?: What is your experience with d isplay?: What is your experience with r esponsive?: Why Oracle?: Why are you a good fit for this role?: What are you looking for in your next role?: Your ideal timeline for starting a new position: Current base compensation: Expected compensation: Are you legally eligible to work in the US?: Thank you! Best, XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX I didn't bother to answer. Most of this information can be gotten from my portfolio site and resume, which I had already submitted. I have no idea why I would receive a zombie response, unless they treat all potential interviewees this way. Perhaps because they believe Oracle is everyone's dream job, and are willing to go to any length to work there.

    Only one round of technical interview. Lasted for about 1hr 30min. Generally not hard, but you'd better know everything you listed on your resume in and out. Be able to think fast.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview

    They asked basic questions on my background, and there is a simple interview with the managers. The difficulty really depends on the manager I would say. There really isn't a multi-level interview process for associate level sales roles.

    Interview

    Applied through school recruiting and got contacted by a recruiter within a few days. I had three phone interviews, all behavioral. Typically the recruiter would email asking for my schedule for the next two weeks and then set up the interview time for me. The interviewers were managers across the country.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview

    Oracle was organized and professional during the process. They were also flexible in terms of offering opportunities to work from almost anywhere. I like the bonus structure as described as well. It was structured so as to encourage teams to meet team goals, and to encourage individuals to strive to meet their personal goals as well.

    Business and Sales Development Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Oracle (Santa Barbara, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process consists of two phone interviews and one final in-person conversation. The two phone interviews lasted about 15 minutes each. They mainly wanted to know how my past experience applied to sales, what I knew about the position and company, and, of course, why I should be hired. Overall the process was pretty straightforward; no role-playing or gimmicks, just basic questions. They are mostly looking for confidence, communication skills, and enthusiasm toward the company.

    Technical Analyst (Support) Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview

    Horrible interview process. Onboarding process took almost 3 months. There are around 4 or 5 interviews, if you are interviewing from long-distance anyway. Don't think you are going to negotiate with them on salary...no room for negotiation with this company. They need the money for their sales parties and new sail boats. You will likely get low-balled. Most employees agree the best way to get a good salary at Oracle is to quit and and come back after you've been paid fairly by a different employer. The best advice is to stay away from this company though.

    Interview Questions

    • Yadda yadda questions, and technical questions were based on a 2 hour exam, consisting of logic questions and IQ shape pattern questions, and some story problems (logic). Pretty easy.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview

    Three phone interviews with Sales Managers from across the U.S. None from the office I was going to work in. Very disjointed process with almost no follow up. Did not know if I was moving along in the interview process, and then would randomly be contacted to set up an interview. After third interview was not told next steps, but received email containing offer about a month later.

    Reasons for Declining

    Had more exciting offer. Less pay but more responsibilities and in city I wanted to be in.

    A good and manageable interview process. One brief phone interview with a recruiter and then an hour long phone interview with two managers in the office that have different roles. 30 minutes per manager on the phone.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Oracle (Boston, MA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted via email in response to my application to schedule a phone interview with a college recruiter. The interview was very casual, and conversational so I was told I would move to the second round. The second round of interviews was conducted by a sales representative at Oracle, and was similar in fashion of the first interview (casual, no standard interview questions.) This conversation was very similar to my first conversation with a recruiter, but I was not continued onto the interview process, for reasons unknown to me.
