    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I got the recruiter's information from a friend and was given a phone interview right away. I later had 2 in person interviews. It was not intimidating at all. You just have to be passionate about sales. Although I was really confident, I wasn't really passionate about working in sales and they were able to tell.

    Lengthy interview process with multiple technical calls. The approval process was long. I did not think I was going to get a call back.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    The process is quite simple. Depends on what team and what position you are interviewing with. I met with three teams at the Oracle HQs in Redwood shores in a single day. Also had a lunch with an alumni of my school. The whole process was very smooth. HRs are very nice and the people who interviewed me are also very friendly. They didn't ask any challenging question. We talked about my background and what their group do for most of the time with some basic questions on Java, multithreading and Algortihms.

    Oracle Direct Account Manager/Sales Representative Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in December 2014.

    Interview

    2 phone interviews, 1 in person interview (panel interview- 3 people) It took 3 months after the interview for them to make the offer because of how long their "Workflow" takes. The whole process was extremely frustrating and I almost accepted another job because it took so long. They told me they wanted to hire me the day after I interviewed and it took 3 months after that for them to make the offer. The whole process should have been a red flag of what was to come...

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Easy. General HR recruiter will call you for a 15-30 min interview. In office interview will be with 2-3 managers. Basically, can you manage your time and are you a normal person? Final "test" is a full background check where every detail of your resume will need to be verified. Probably the hardest part of the process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Overall, very relaxed. There were two interviewers from the team and they both just asked questions to get to know me. The office is very nice and inviting and the location is beautiful. The actual interview lasted no more than 45 minutes and was conducted in a small office room. The interviewers walked me out afterward and told me we would be in contact. The position went to someone else though.
