Lead Oracle Database Administrator Interview

Lead Oracle Database Administrator
Tampa, FL

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at TECO Energy in February 2012.

Interview Details – I applied the positon thru on-line web site. Got a call a few weeks later for a phone interview followed by an on-site interview. There were three 1:1 interview with customer manager, application manager and hiring manager. Each session lasted for an hour. They are standard behavior interview with no surprise. I think I did well during the interview. The managers were friendly. However, during lunch break with DBA team, the questions keep poping up like "Are you retired from previous company?" "Are you going to leave since the TECO job itself is not so exciting?". "Lead DBA is a title not a job function itself!" I was told by hiring manager that I'll get a call from either himself or the recruitor in next few days. Instead I got a reject email 2 days later with no explanation. There are some hidden agendas they have not told you about! :(

Interview Question – They are standard behavior questions! You can "google" them under the title "behavior interview".   Answer Question

Customer Service Interview

Customer Service
Tampa, FL

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at TECO Energy in May 2010.

Interview Details – Day 1 - Applied on-line and attached resume. Very easy application process. Received an email within a couple weeks stating that I will be moving to the first step of the process. This first step is an on-line assessment (Mostly personality questions) which took about an hour. If you pass this you will be selected to go to the next phase which is a skills test in their Call Center. They grade the skills test right away and if you pass that, you will go directly into a panel interview. I had 3 people, two from the department and one from HR. All the questions needed to be answered in the STAR format... Situation or Task, Action, then Result. Had at least 10 different questions and it took about an hour. I left feeling good and did in fact receive a call within a couple days with a job offer. Came in about 2 days later to sign paperwork, including that all the answers to the questions in the application I had filled out initially were truthful. They reiterated that we need to make sure that we listed any and all convictions, Felony or Misdemeanor, and sign the application. I was told to go back 7 years, which I had done originally and listed 3 misdemeanors I had. These were known BEFORE I was offered the job so I felt pretty confident that nothing could go wrong. I was floored when the job was rescinded after they did their background check and saw a few other misdemeanors I had 10-20 yrs ago. Overall very easy hiring process but beware that they will probably go back 20 yrs or so on your background.
