    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Typical process. One round with Recruiter, One round with hiring manager and an on-site interview with 4-5 peer of the hiring manager. The process was quick. Scheduling was done quick . Location was easy to get to. The team was quick to respond. Be prepare to just listen and not ask any question. Some questions were totally irrelevant .

    Interview Questions
    • There was no difficult question. Most of the managers did not seem very motivated. They switched over from consulting and are happy with steady check.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Offer was 10k less than original offer. They like to play dodge ball. I accepted the original offer and they came back and said sorry we didnt realize we could not pay you that much. We have to drop it by 10k. Seems like bait and switch. I declined because I found that process very unethical.

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

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was referred by another Oracle employee. I had two phone interviews, one with a Senior Director and one with a VP. The Senior Director's questions related to what I had experience with and how large each project was. Very personable and comfortable. The VP asked situational questions and wanted to understand the way I analyze and approach situations. I gave honest, pragmatic answers.

    • Why did you work at three different companies in the past 5 years?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Initially I was promised a higher salary, then executive management cut it by 10K, claiming 'I could grow into the position'. This past year, there were no (official) raises, so zero "growing into' dollars for me. I decided to accept the job based on being virtual and my immediate management.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Oracle in September 2009.

    Very laid-back. After a phone screen with the recruiter, I got invited to a meeting with the hiring manager. We "clicked" quickly.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't remember. It didn't really feel like an interview, more of a discussion.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The only thing that one can negotiate is the starting salary. There is nothing else on the offer. So my advise is: negotiate it well, you don't know when you will have a raise.
