    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Oracle in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was extremely long and several people will interview you. Expect to be very repetitive because they will all ask the same questions. Technical questions were in line with the work requirements but the process should be consolidated to one senior person and not have the entire senior staff to interview you.

    Interview Questions
    • All the questions were in line with the work being applied. Have not found any unexpected questions or difficult ones as I was applying for a job that I already knew the technical aspects of it.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    No room for negotiation. They offer you the X amount and that is about it. Either take it or leave it.
