Program Manager Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood Shores, CA) in October 2011.
Spoke with a recruiter first, then the hiring manager, then the director. All were very pleasant and helpful, trying to make sure it was the right fit for them and for me. All over the phone, except one in-person visit with the hiring manager, who gave me a brief tour of HQ. Once the offer was extended, they gave me a chance to think it over and negotiate a bit. Glad I accepted.
- Nothing in particular--we discussed my skills and experience, and I had people familiar with the my work that recommended me. Answer Question
Yes, there was a bit of back and forth as I considered other offers, as well. They weren't able to fully match another offer, but I knew it was a better fit.

told them my expected salary and that was exactly what they offered me. No negotiation. Suspect this is not the norm.

I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Oracle (Bangalore (India)) in February 2011.
It was worst. No time management. Schedules were changed frequently. People never kept their words. The emails only flowed, not actions. Very pathetic experience. The cycle was long.

I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Oracle in September 2010.
This was an interview to move from contractor to permanent hire after Oracle acquired Sun Microsystems. The interview was mostly about salary and compensation, not skills (I was already doing the job as a contractor). The option of increasing responsibilities were not availed.
I negotiated a $5K salary increase (4.5%), other aspects were not negotiable. Be willing to walk if you want to negotiate more.

I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Oracle in April 2009.
I met with an Oracle recruiter on-site at a career fair and applied to be a program manager directing customer success programs. The interview consisted of two stages: one phone interview and one on-site interview at the headquarters. The phone interview was purely behavioral with the questions relating to what you would do in certain scenarios regarding deadlines, project management, and teamwork. The on-site interview was a more rigorous version of this.
- You have a project that involves both technical and non-technical teams. You meet with the technical team and jot down their understanding of what needs to be done and need to translate the project requirements to the non-technical team. How would you approach translating the information and presenting it to your managers? Answer Question
