Software Developer Interview

Anonymous Employee in Redwood City, CA

Application Details

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

Interview Details

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.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Oracle in November 2008.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Oracle in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Oracle in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    At first they organized an Online test which consist of 4 sections: Verbal, Aptitude, Reasoning and Programming. Test was very easy but you need to be good at technical part to clear programming section cut off.
    then i have two rounds of interviews : one is Technical and other is HR.
    Both the rounds are Elimination rounds.
    They usually prefer students with high CGPA and the one who has done some project work in field of programming.
    I strongly suggest to have good speaking skills and a sound knowledge toward basic concepts of OS, DBMS, SQL and JAVA

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing was actually tuff, they asked me about my projects especially related to programming, their were also some questions of HR in technical interview like what is your dream . There was separate marks for each sort of questions they were asking, so one need to be smart and confident to give those answers.   Answer Question
