- No OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Oracle (San Jose, CA) in April 2015.
The interview was straight-forward. They started with going over the projects and experiences and parts they were interested in. They asked about previous experiences and to elaborate on projects. Then moved onto talking about the company itself and why I chose this position and what other positions I might be looking for. They also asked about the salary I'd be looking for. Ended with any questions I wanted to ask.
- What experience will you be bringing to the company? Answer Question
- No OfferNegative ExperienceEasy Interview
contacted by recruiter. set up multiple phone screens and you interview on site with those who are interested. While the phone interview questions are relevant to the position the onsite questions were meaningless. There were 0 technical questions, only puzzles. The whole process is extremely biased and the is definitely hiring favoritism as qualified candidates have not been hired while unqualified are hired (given they share a "similar" trait as the hiring manager).
- VLSI questions, inverter, muxes, puzzles Answer Question

I applied through other source. The process took a week – interviewed at Oracle (San Jose, CA) in February 2015.
The process was hurried and it appeared that the manager (hiring) was hurried and under some pressure from other needs. A follow-up was suggested and I accepted. However, the follow-up never materialized, though I attempted multiple follow-up communications. This is the second such opportunity I have had to interview with Oracle and though different the situation seemed to be the same, the hiring manager in the first opportunity came right out and said that this was not a problem he created, but was his to fix. I don't know if this is due to arrogance or stress existence in the organization but something is wrong.

I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at Oracle (Santa Clara, CA) in January 2015.
Some of the interviewers were chatting with somebody using their cell phones. They didn't respect people! I decided not to answer any questions when I found that. I don't want to work with these people!

I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks – interviewed at Oracle (Santa Clara, CA) in October 2014.
Got an email from the recruiter (had submitted the resume during the career fair). HR provided a list of groups out of which we can select any number depending on our interest. Interviewed with 4 groups (1 hour 30 min each) back-to-back and got an offer from one of the managers on that day itself. That turned out to be best possible scenario since I wanted to work with that group right from the day I had chosen the group as one of my potential interests. Questions involved identifying bugs in a code, deep OS questions, white-board coding. Rigorous but delightful.
I got a more than expected offer and did not wish to negotiate on that considering the potential growth in the team.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Oracle (Santa Clara, CA) in December 2013.
The campus recruiter distributed my resume to several hiring managers and within a week I got phone calls from several managers. They all basically told me about what their group does and learn about my technical background. Then if you show interest in their positions they will tell recruiter to arrange an onsite interview. During the onsite they didn't ask too much technical questions but just talked to you further by introducing their group and asking more details about your phd work and course work.
