    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Oracle.

    Interview Details

    Initially was a phone screening round . I only had 3 years or experience so was asked to take a couple of written tests which included 'C' and other IQ and quantitative tests. Maybe depends on the group for which you are interviewing . I was interviewing for Server Technologies .

    Next was a small panel with a couple of senior folks who grilled me on different areas in 'C' and Unix Systems and Network Programming .

    Next was a 1:1 with a PMTS/CMTS kind of person . He gets deep inside Unix internals and 'C' programming and Makefiles and debugging and lot of other things.

    The last guy gave the go ahead and I talked to the HR person .

    Interview Questions
    • Can't think or remember anything .. Maybe the technical questions and it was really challenging with my limited knowledge at that time.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I wasn't in a position to negotiate much , since I was on a lower salary . Had asked for a 30% hike and was told that I was asking for too much .

    When I got the offer , it was almost a 100% hike of my current salary. So was pretty satisfied .

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Oracle in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Two face to face. One telephonic and teleconferencing round and another face to face. Except for the telephonic round, all happened in person in oracle campus. First two rounds are easy and third interview is a telephonic round where the person in US has called me up. This interview is slightly difficult than first two. All three interviews posed basic java questions, junit, & selenium questions. teleconference round is also in oracle campus. This is a HR round where I was asked why I'm changing, most of the time is spent on that. Last round is also a HR round.
