    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7+ weeks - interviewed at Oracle in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Was recruited via LinkedIn. Was recruited by Workday at the same time. Two completely different experiences. Oracle had the recruiter interview me by phone first. Next came a short interview with my potential manager. Each interview was maybe a half hour. Finally they flew me out to Atlanta to interview with another manager and the director of consulting. I was required to give a 15 minute presentation just to make sure I was up to the task, and to check my delivery. They told me if there was an offer it would come in a couple weeks, which was nice because they didn't leave me hanging. Two weeks later came the offer, which I accepted.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked how I expected to handle moving from a smaller company with 14,000 employees to a large company like Oracle with 120,000 employees. Didn't see that one coming.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation was rough. They were hiring a lot of people and didn't seem terribly interested in moving the number.

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview Details

    Originally meet them at an on campus meeting, from there they immediately offered me an on the phone interview. From there I proceeded to have multiple phone interviews with them. It took them quite a while to get back to me after each interview. After my first interview I thought I had not got another interview as it took them multiple months to get back to me.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Oracle in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    Initial conversations with an Oracle recruiter who had limited understanding of the job, but had a bunch of standard questions to ask about what types of software I had worked with. After the recruiter felt my skills matched the job, I was then connected to a hiring manager for a telephone interview. The next step involved a few more phone discussions with team members, another manager, and then a multi-person discussion with two sales managers. The final evaluation was a demonstration presented to the team I'd be working with. I had a verbal offer that was dependent on passing a background check and a formal offer followed.

    Interview Questions
    • Not a question per se, but I had to demonstrate one of the Oracle cloud solutions with only 3 days to access, prepare, and practice with software I had not ever worked with before.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    It was a collaborative process with the hiring manager who was very honest about what would be possible for compensation.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview Details

    The interviewing stage is so long. Too long. There is three to four rounds of interviews, which includes a final presentation. The fist few interviews are basic HR interview and are pretty easy. Then a manager will either come to you or you will meet them somewhere, all of the travel is taken care of for you. The final round is not about your product knowledge but more of how you present and general industry knowledge.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Oracle in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    Rather straight forward. Since it is a technical sales position, technical knowledge is an expectation. An opportunity to do a presentation was provided. Managers generally are looking for someone who can articulate complex technology concepts and features into simple benefits and opportunities.
