Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Oracle.

Interview Details

The interview process was ridiculous. All they asked for was a resume and then I got an email back telling me that I had been selected into their internship program. A few weeks later I heard from them about choosing a group. Definitely not what I expected!

    Good organization, the interview process was fun and talked with interesting people. The people were responsive on my emails and stayed engaged throughout the process. A little slow on the offer for fresh out of college people.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions where very low level JAVA language questions. Questions like what is the Super class of all classes in JAVA. How does the class loader work. What are the different drivers in JDBC (he did want to know about JAVA JDBC Connectors so I do not know what he was referring to). The questions where mostly like this. Things that I never heard anyone else ask before on a JAVA interview.   View Answers (2)

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

    Interview Details

    I got a call through university recruiting, so I had choices regarding which groups to interview. The process is easy, you have to choose 6 groups for the interview from a list which HR will send you. Once you interview with all the groups, you need to give a list of groups you want to work with in order of preference. The HR will get the input from groups, as soon as there is a match, they will send you an offer.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Oracle in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    College hire process can vary from student to student. I have heard of students having a technical phone screen but my process was 20 minute HR screen --> Group Ranking from groups interested in hiring me --> HQ group interviews. The group interviews can vary from pure behavioral, white board coding, take home coding tests, and or a mixture of everything. Mine was more on the behavioral side so it was easier possibly.

    That hardest part is actually getting the first round interview. Oracle only hires from some 15 colleges from around the country (with some exceptions) and weigh GPA and work experience (internships / coops) higher than many would expect hence the interview process maybe very easy for many.

    Interview Questions
    • A great white board question I remember was "Find the second largest element in a Binary Search Tree"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    Oracle exceeded my salary range - no negotiation was necessary. They also ended up giving an extra 5k bonus when I started on top of what was in my offer packet.

    1st yr Software Engineer Applicant Phone Interview:

    Tell me about XXX on your resume

    Time when someone wasn't holding their weight, how it was handled

    Why Oracle?

    Questions for me?

    Final superday interview was more difficult. Ended after interviews with a test where we were given 2 problems to choose from and solve. The problems were both database focused although about 1/2 the applicants were not applying for the DBA position. This is Oracle, know your DB skills regardless of if you intend to be a DB or not.
