    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    This was one of the easiest interviews. I was recruited from the Cal Poly, SLO career fair. I handed a recruiter my resume and they emailed me regarding an interest in my resume. From there, I underwent a series of three over-the-phone interviews. One, with a recruiter, and the other two with two different managers. All three interviews were extremely easy, with some of the most generic questions. I answered them honestly and confidently and was hired 2 weeks later.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I went to my school's career fair and met three employees from Oracle. I was contacted by a college recruiter within the following two weeks and went through three different interviews. The first interview was over the phone with the college recruiter and was extremely basic. The second interview was over the phone with a sales manager and the questions were very similar to the first interview but with a little more depth. The final interview was in person, on Oracle's campus, and was with another manager. The final interview felt more like a conversation than anything. I was asked one or two situational questions (what would you do if...?) but overall, the questions were basic sales questions.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Oracle (San Francisco, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I sent my resume to the oracle recruiting email address, and got a reply from the HR. Later, she called me asking for some basic information. It was not like a phone interview. Then my resume was reviewed by groups in Oracle. About one month later, I got the onsite interview invitation with the group descriptions. Then I speak with five groups. Some groups are in Massachusetts, then the form would be a video interview. Video interviews were basically more technical. Others asked about the resume and projects I did in school, together with some small technical questions. They were not very hard. The time for each group was 1 hour and a quarter. And I speak with several persons in that group. Between successive interviews, there was a quarter for rest. Interviewers were very friendly, and made the interview more like a talking or discussion. Now I am still waiting for the response.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Oracle (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Met with 3 Groups on 2 different days. Oracle people are very nice, from Recruiters to managers. They managed to create a pleasant conversational environment and never put pressure on you. Very few technical questions, the process is quite smooth. They arranged lunch with two alumni, very informative and considerate. But they raise a high bar for selecting candidates for onsite. I think this is why Oracle interview is easy but still can hire talented people.

    Interview Questions

    • It depends on groups that are interested in you. Some groups asks algorithm coding questions while others place more emphasis on communication and behavior. Anyway, you can assume nothing in advance, be prepared for data structure, algorithms and basic technical questions. After all, for a software engineer position, the responsibility is to write code every day.   Answer Question

    Two phone interviews and an on-site interview that was very intense.
