    Associate Sales Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed 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 days. I interviewed 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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (San Francisco, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews and an on-site interview that was very intense. Overall the hiring process was smooth and efficient, with interviewers helping to establish a friendly but professional dialogue with the interviewee. As I said before, the on-site at HQ was intense, but I came out of it feeling great and confident in my performance.

    Oracle Direct Account Manager/Sales Representative Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I 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...

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    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.
