Interview Details – 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.

Interview Details – 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.
