    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA).

    Interview

    The recruiter was very friendly and called me and flew me out to California without a first round interview. Beforehand I had to look at a list of different managers and their projects who were interested in my resume. I had to send back a list of managers who i would want to work with. When I got to California, I spent about ~1 hour with each manager and had to rank them in order of preference. The interviews ranged from mostly fit/personal questions and some technical questions.

    Solution Consultant/Sales Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to me via Linkedin there were two position up for offer but no job description qualification or skills etc. i emailed recruiter I will be interested in Sales and not in any technical role. Never got a chance to talk to recruiter, that was red flag already. She scheduled an interview with Hiring manager, had a good discussion with Hiring Manager, mostly on roles and responsibilities and my interest. There were multiple interviews scheduled following my call with HM. 2 Phones and 4 in person in 4 different days. Interview with Director (4th in person) was final from my side. seems like he was not prepared, He asked about my knowledge with Oracle products and emphasis importance of Oracle product knowledge for the role. He is with oracle for 18 yrs and when I asked, yet he did not know whats adoption rate for Oracle's Exadata or NOSQL products, quite ironic. I thought interview with director would be final one and they will make decision yes/no , but he wanted me to talk to a Solution architect as well. I thought they should have had me talk to Soln architect prior to meeting with Director rather than later. Besides it seemed the Sales director did not plan well for the interview. I made my mind to declined to pursue further due to mismtach of skills. I had good conversation with rest of oracle's team, upbeat and enthusiastic, I was interested until I met the director.

    Principal User Experience Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Hiring process took forever. Went back in for multiple interviews. I was given a design exercise, and had to present that to a panel, so they could evaluate thinking and visual aesthetic/skills. After going through the process and getting selected it took months to receive the offer. Apparently not unusual, but in this case it seems to have been unusually long.

    Interview Questions

    • Cant really say that I had anything to difficult or unexpected from a personal perspective. I tend to be pretty open and transparent, avoid saying what I think they want to hear. That makes it easier for me to answer questions, and it allows one to show up more authentically.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 7+ weeksinterviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I had 3 interviews - 2 with other sales reps and one with my boss-to-be. overall, I thought the experience was pretty good, and I am looking forward to working there. There is definitely a bias toward action, and I got an upbeat feel about the place. Work hard, work hard and play hard.

    Interview Questions

    • Not really any one question. They wanted me to go through a role-play with them on a sales call, so I did. it didn't seem too bad; I think they liked it because it had Oracle products in it. Also, I didn't bash the competition when in my answer, which they seemed to like.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not much. Came back on everything - car, signing bonus, stock, etc. but they pretty much said this is it and I took it.
