    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Oracle in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    Very laid-back. After a phone screen with the recruiter, I got invited to a meeting with the hiring manager. We "clicked" quickly.

    Interview Questions
    • I don't remember. It didn't really feel like an interview, more of a discussion.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    The only thing that one can negotiate is the starting salary. There is nothing else on the offer. So my advise is: negotiate it well, you don't know when you will have a raise.

    Sales Academy: Associate Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Redwood City, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Oracle in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    As a graduating college senior, it was extremely easy to apply. I emailed the campus recruiter and she said she could interview me later that same day. She asked me a few personality questions, a few questions about my most applicable work experience, what my understanding of the position I was applying for is, and that was about it. Extremely personable, was almost trying to get me to want to job more than trying to grill me. Although, in all fairness, I came recommended by two current employees and had a tremendous amount of relevant experience for a college student. The second round was over the phone and asked most of the same questions as the first round in person. It was a joke how easy it was and I can't imagine anyone having a hard time if they know anything about what someone in sales does.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Oracle in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was recruited through LinkedIn and on-campus recruiting at Cal. I was being interviewed for the January Sales Academy start date and the process was very fast. Attended an information session, had a 30-minute in-person interview, 20-minute phone interview, and received my offer. All within a week or so.

    Interview Questions
    • No questions were difficult. Some I was simply not prepared for, such as "tell me awards you have recently won." If they like you, you'll just end up chatting.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation almost impossible. The hiring process is so streamlined, almost everyone gets the same automated offer. But it's a good offer.
