I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Oracle.
Interview Details – I found the interview process at Oracle to be fairly relaxed in relation to the interviews conducted by other competitors. Going into the interview, I lacked many of the technical skills and specific work experience required for the job, so my interviewer took a holistic approach to my education and past work experience to discern that I would indeed be a good fit for the company. After one in person interview, I received my official offer of employment from Oracle.
Interview Question – I was asked about my specific knowledge of the services provided by the company View Answer

Interview Details – I went through the campus recruiting process. I had two interviews, one phone interview and one in-person interview at my school's career center. Both were very straightforward and all behavioral questions. The phone interview lasted about 20-30 minutes and I was asked behavioral questions based on my resume that I had submitted to them. At the end of the phone interview, they asked me right away if I'd be available for an in-person interview in the next two days. At that interview, they asked some follow-up questions to the answers I had given in the phone interview. I was given an offer on the spot.

Interview Details – I had 3 interviews - 2 with other sales reps and one with my boss-to-be. overall, I thought the experience was pretty good, and I am looking forward to working there. There is definitely a bias toward action, and I got an upbeat feel about the place. Work hard, work hard and play hard.
Interview Question – Not really any one question. They wanted me to go through a role-play with them on a sales call, so I did. it didn't seem too bad; I think they liked it because it had Oracle products in it. Also, I didn't bash the competition when in my answer, which they seemed to like. Answer Question

Interview Details – Great interview experience. The interviewer was very nice yet straightforward.

Each interviewer wanted to know more about me, where I saw myself in the next 10 years, and why I would best be fit for the job. I was very impressed with the company.

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Oracle.
Interview Details –
- I was headhunted on linkedin by HR
- I got one call with HR to explain the position to to
- 2 days later I was invited by a different HR for a phone interview
- 1 week later was invited for a phone interview with hiring manager
I had some negative experience - even though I was headhunted and obviously I needed privacy around my application, an ex-colleague of mina (not related to Oracle in any way) knew that I was applying and asked me about it!
Nobody ever got back to me to tell me if there are any further steps and what they are. I tried to follow up with both HR and the hiring manager, but without success. 4 months later, the position is still open.
Interview Question –
Questions from HR were the regular ones:
- Tell me about your experience
- How did you join your current employer
- Salary expectations
- When can you start
- And a not so typical one - I can see you are on maternity leave, I know it might be difficult for a new mom to go back to work, do you have any arrangements around childcare?
Interview with hiring manager:
Well, there was no real interview. The man spent about an hour to go into very deep details of the position. Deep details included sales target amount, marketing budget available and so on. I was not asked pretty much anything and it was difficult to share my previous experience within his monologue. Answer Question
