    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Oracle in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Negotiation Details
    I got a more than expected offer and did not wish to negotiate on that considering the potential growth in the team.

    Hardware Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Oracle in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Principal Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Jose, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Oracle in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I visited the offices twice to meet with the team and the senior leadership. The whole process took about 3 days. Phone interview followed by a long distance call with someone in India plus 1.5 days of in-person interviews.

    It is disappointing at several levels to be

    1. Interviewed by somebody in India who has little idea about contemporary processes and systems. This man ridiculed my current position without understanding the role or its responsibilities. A very nasty experience. As an interviewee, we are supposed to grin and take the hits ? At one point, he grumbled why they even had this position open and then twisted his unhappiness into yet another sub-standard question. Here is a classic "Why do companies make products?". Jealous much?

    2. Ignored after the interview process and not even get a rejection letter. Oracle was too busy for that. Respect much?

    3. Interviewed by the hiring manager who didn't show sufficient and necessary technical strength. His in-person interview was interrupted by phone calls. And this crucial interview lasted less than 30 minutes and he had to cut and run. The whole thing seemed unplanned and not really a priority. Interview much?

    Hardware Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Oracle in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is long and slow overall. Went through about 5 phone interviews in a span of about 4 weeks. First phone screening was with HR, then hiring manager, then a bunch of other senior engineers and finally an on-site interview with 4 different engineers (some of which I've spoken to on the phone before). Still a couple of weeks to wait for the approval from upper management after the unofficial acceptance from the hiring manager. A background check was also performed.

    Interview Questions
    • No tricky questions overall, most stuff can be found online. Very typical entry level engineering questions such as solving a circuit using KVL/KCL, simple MOSFET applications, simple flipflop applications, draw a simple state machine, and demonstrate basic understanding of circuit boards.   Answer Question
