Account Executive Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in April 2014.
Interview Details – They sent me an In-mail and I had a first interview with recruiter. After that she said that she would follow up and put me in contact with the sales manager, but after 3 weeks and many emails I had absolutely no answer and no feedback. I would have expect at least a feedback it was very unprofessional.
Interview Question – It was a good interview, about my previous experiences and my expectation for salary and position Answer Question

Oracle Education Sales Representative Interview (Positive Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Oracle.
Interview Details – 1) Started with a brief telephone interview, following up on my CV, experience, motivations to work at the company and plans for the future (next 5 years). The phone call came within a few hours after my application. The interviewer was very friendly and knowledgeable and was able to answer any questions I had at that point.
2) after the application was forward to management , within 4 days, I was asked by the recruiter to write a brief overview of my motivations, specific achievements, what I can bring to the company and an outlook where I see myself in 5 years.
3) Next step (after about 4 working days) was an invitation to the office, meeting with the regional and local market manager. The regional manager took lead and did a very structured and detailed interview , which lasted about 1 hour. I was asked how I found the job, my work related experiences, detailed questions to previous job tasks, achievements, how I solved problems or what I see as biggest challenges in this job. They took a lot of notes and were very attentive to any "contradictions" to what was on the CV and being said in the interview. I felt that this was part of checking how you cope with a bit of stress.
The interview put a lot of focus on the job questions but also showed some humor and followed up on a few unrelated topics, like sport. Overall, a very good interview experience, quite challenging but fair.

Inside Sales Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in July 2008.
Interview Details – Two telephone and attended 1 out of 3 face-2-face interviews. First telephone interview was a breeze. Internal HR/Consultant screen. Second telephone interview was with a senior manager, again a breeze. First face to face interview was with a senior manager whose communication style was big picture which was incompatible with my own style. Questions asked were mundane, boring and ambiguous.
The interview skills of the hiring manager were lacking. I felt very disengaged throughout the short interview.
The hiring manager's competency based interview failed miserably due to the communication mismatch. It took only 10 minutes into the interview that I decided I didn't want to work for that person. I made that decision based on a question that was asked which I re-framed and volleyed back to the interviewer. This process only succeeded in winding the interviewer up whereas it should have engaged and demonstrated deeper inquiry into the role and make up of the ideal candidate. Which is good interview practice. I also demonstrated a deep research into the firm, Dublin operation and the hiring manager's professional Bio.
The hiring manager was accompanied in the interview with a spare part who didn't ask a single question. I disqualified myself during the interview and withdrew my application.
