    Project Manager Interview

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

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Oracle in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Honestly, the interview process was a roller coaster. The total time it took from being contacted by an HR rep to actually signing an offer was months long. I know this is probably common for large corporations, so be prepared for this. After a phone call with HR, I next had a phone interview with the hiring manager. This was followed by a number of other phone interviews - I spoke with two peers, the manager's boss, the bosses boss, and finally had an in-person interview with the hiring manager. In between each of these rounds I waited several days (sometimes weeks) with no feedback. Making it to the next round was a total surprise each time. So I want to stress that you shouldn't be discouraged by the amount of time it takes to hear anything. They are all very busy and hiring someone new that requires training and on-boarding is pretty low on their list of priorities.

    The interviews were very low-stress and conversational. They asked fair questions and didn't try to stump me the way other interviewers have. They wanted to know about my background and specifically my experience and skill-set relevant to this position.

    Negotiation Details
    Negotiating is not an option. Make sure they have a clear picture of your salary expectation early-on. The HR person might also try to ask you if you think you would accept if an offer were made. I thought this was strange to discuss before actually getting the offer, but it ended up working out since this was my number one choice.

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone screening interview, then called in for a face to face interview with the hiring manager within a week. Hiring manager was very professional and made me feel at ease. Obviously there were some tough co-workers that this position would be dealing with, and that appeared to be their main concern on how their hiring candidate would be able to deal with these difficult personalities.

It is worthied. this is a good company to work for.

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was very brief. They only recruited from select schools and expected the school's admissions process to do most of the work for them. I applied through my school website and was contacted to schedule an interview. After one interview, a background check and GPA review I was given an offer.

    I interviewed online. The process took a day - interviewed at Oracle in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    The response from the company was super fast. I was contacted the next day after submitting the resume to set up a phone interview time. The interview lasted about 1 hour with three coding questions. The interviewer was very professional and he tried to discover my best potential.

    Principal Member of Technical Staff Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Redwood City, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Redwood City, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. 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.
