Sales Representative Interview

Interview Details

On campus recruitment interview, 30 minutes each with two sales reps. They were easy going and asked the typical interview questions, typing notes throughout the process. It wasn't all "business" in the sense that we had informal conversations and they were very helpful in answering all the questions that I had. They were honest when I asked what is the best and worst part about their job and I appreciated their patience when I froze up one time when asked a question I didn't prepare for!

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Oracle in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Two phone interviews followed by a 1 on 1 interview with a sales director. Each interview lasted around 20 minutes. Asking them questions pushed it to a standard 30 minute interview. First round questions were very basic. Second round questions had more technical questions regarding sales with an inside sales rep. Final round went back to basic interview questions.

    Interview Details

    Interview process took about three months and I had five interviews. They ask very simple behavioral questions but the job is extremely competitive so you have to be creative with your answers. Basically they want to know if you are a good communicator and a hard working person. You don't have to be a business major to get the job.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Oracle.

    Interview Details

    I got an email from an on-campus recruiter to schedule a phone interview which lasted about 20 minutes.
    Why Oracle?
    Why sales?
    Did you have any cold calling experience?

    I did not get into the second round interview, so I'm not sure what the second interview would be like.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Oracle.

    Interview Details

    It was a very lengthy interview process and from start to finish it took 5 months' time. I first spoke with the VP of Sales and then with the Sales Director. There appeared to be an interest in hiring me, but there was a vast amount of time from the submission of my application to my last interview.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Oracle in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    Three rounds of interviews: 2 in person interviews and 1 phone interview. One interview was with the HR recruiter and the others were with Sales Reps. The first interview with the HR recruiter was a general interview asking basic question (Tell me about yourself. Why are you interested in this position? Tell me examples of times you were involved in sales? If not that's okay. Why are you a good fit for sales?). The other interviews went into more detail but were similar to the first interview.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Oracle in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Through college recruiting.
    Called me on the phone for pre-screening. It was very informal and I talked for the majority of the screening with questions about my resume and past experiences including school.
    2nd interview with manager on phone felt informal and at ease because of the easy-going nature of the manager.
    And a third interview face to face.

    Skype interview then Phone interview.
