Software Developer Interview

Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed 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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oracle (San Francisco, CA) in November 2008.

    Interview

    Was contacted directly via email that Oracle wanted to interview me on-site. They claimed they found my CV through the school's database. They were very generous and hospitable throughout the stay: they flew me in on a Wednesday evening, had a rental car waiting, and put me to sleep in a nice hotel. Thursday was interviews all day long, one after the other (6 total, each about 1 - 1.5 hours long). Many consisted of IQ questions (puzzle solving), but there were also personality tests and skills tests. Specifically, they grilled me on Java knowledge (keywords, syntax, and example problems). The interviews were all independent of each other: each interview was really a smaller group within Oracle that wanted to interview me their own way. They let me stay in SF all of Friday, and I flew home on Saturday morning.

    Interview Questions

    • Tricky Java syntax questions (miscellaneous).   Answer Question
    • 5 horses on a 5-lane track. You have 5 horses and you want to rank the top three. All you have available to you is a track and the ability to tell perfectly in which order the horses crossed the finish line. How many races are necessary in order to rank the top three horses?   3 Answers

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oracle in September 2014.

    Interview

    There was a written test as first round. It had aptitude, verbal and computer science knowledge. After that 58 students were shortlisted. Then we had two rounds of interview. First one was technical interview. They mainly asked about your project and little cross questioning over how you implemented this feature in your projects. They then asked 1-2 puzzles. They were generally easy. Just prepare your projects and you are good for the tech round. The hr round which was the last round, is just a formality, they ask general questions. Tip: do go through the website once, they might ask questions on that.
