Software Developer II Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mexico, Distrito Federal (Mexico)
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Oracle (Mexico, Distrito Federal (Mexico)) in February 2010.

Interview

7 interviews. 2 physicals with 4 people, 3 over the phone. Very unexpected questions about anything. Puzzles, think fast questions, etc. They all want to see if you are a good fit, both in your personality and in your technical skills. Don't hesitate to say you need help. They don't expect a guru on everything, but someone capable of finding or thinking on a solution to a problem.

Interview Questions

  • Its hard to say. Most of the question came unexpected as most interviewers in Mexico don't usually know programming (they just want a programmer), but they will definitively ask about algorithms and stuff like that.   1 Answer

Negotiation

HR asks your expected salary. Make a good research, as they won't negotiate: If it is too high for what you know, you are out. If it is too low, well, you know what is going to happen. They will also set the position based on this and then the teams interested will say "Senior? Probably Junior" and then you may not get hired even if you were a good fit. Be honest with your own value, no less no more. Once inside everything is negotiable.

    The process is quite simple. Depends on what team and what position you are interviewing with. I met with three teams at the Oracle HQs in Redwood shores in a single day. Also had a lunch with an alumni of my school. The whole process was very smooth. HRs are very nice and the people who interviewed me are also very friendly. They didn't ask any challenging question. We talked about my background and what their group do for most of the time with some basic questions on Java, multithreading and Algortihms.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Oracle (Bangalore (India)) in March 2011.

    Interview

    It was a very informal interview but had to wait 3 months for background check and all to clear. Questions asked ranged form how good are you in <some subject>. Some analytical skills questions were thrown at random. finally they asked me if I could specify the details of a trial-version software. All in all, it was not much related to the actual work that i did for 3 years.
