Easy Interview

Sales Manager Interview

Sales Manager
San Francisco, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Oracle in October 2013.

Interview Details – I was recruited through LinkedIn and on-campus recruiting at Cal. I was being interviewed for the January Sales Academy start date and the process was very fast. Attended an information session, had a 30-minute in-person interview, 20-minute phone interview, and received my offer. All within a week or so.

Interview Question – No questions were difficult. Some I was simply not prepared for, such as "tell me awards you have recently won." If they like you, you'll just end up chatting.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Negotiation almost impossible. The hiring process is so streamlined, almost everyone gets the same automated offer. But it's a good offer.

Sales Manager Interview

Sales Manager

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Oracle.

Interview Details – Interview process was easy. The hire process was slow and painful. Limited information available to anyone, numerous levels of bureaucracy.

The interview process is a joke for sales. If you can show some track record and experience selling they will hire you. That said, if you survive is another matter. The approach is hire many and see who survives a year with an Oracle sales quota.

Interview Question – There weren't any difficult questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not a lot of negotiation. Little movement on the Oracle side.

Sales Manager Interview

Sales Manager
Austin, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Oracle in June 2011.

Interview Question – Unexpected to be asked if I were a tree what type of tree would I prefer to be.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Provided earnings statements from prior positions as Oracle will not offer compensation at a dramatically higher level than previous comp. Process was rather short.

Difficult Interview

Sales Manager Interview

Sales Manager
Bellevue, WA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in November 2009.

Interview Details – Initial interview was by phone with remote hiring manager. 2nd interview was in-person with hiring manager. 3rd interview was by phone with peer to hiring manager. 4th interview was in-person with peer to hiring manager. 5th interview was by phone with Executive to hiring manager. Very regimented process, but didn't seem to follow any formal structure. Although the hiring manager made the final decision, the other interviewees had to be "on board".

Interview Question – what qualities would you look for when hiring new employees?   Answer Question

Sales Manager Interview

Sales Manager

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in November 2011.

Interview Details – The initial interview was with a local HR manager and associates. It seems very normal that they asked usual questions like who I am, what I have done, and what my skills are. The next step was to meet with actual reporting line manager, coming from the other region. I declined to proceed with the interview due to his unprofessional impression.

Interview Question – The next level interviewer was not requesting, but was commanding me to do things prior to the interview.   Answer Question
