    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview

    Went through the first round interview by phone. I talked to a recruiter, he was very nice. Pretty easy, standard interview questions. Basically he just asked me to walk him through my resume, and then asked some behavioral questions. I did not make it through to next round though, I'm not sure why.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview

    Three phone interviews within two weeks. The first was a phone screening with a recruiter and the other two were with sales managers. Overall the interviews are all very similar, just asked behavioral questions that made sure I was ambitious about starting a career in sales. Make sure to prepare well for each interview! Research who you are interviewing and ask them lots of questions.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview

    Three interviews, all on the phone. First one was basic- ask you what you know about Oracle and then tell you about the position itself (ask if you're comfortable making cold calls, etc.). The second was more about why you wanted to work at Oracle and the third was very similar.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Chapel Hill, NC).

    Interview

    pretty easy, the interviewers were all really nice. The first interview was in person with the college recruiter, she then scheduled a second interview with a business development manager, then the third was with someone in marketing (to get an outside perspective) all of the questions were behavioral. I would prepare by really asking yourself if sales is for you. This role is designed to set you up to a sales position. You should be promoted within a year so you should know how to answer whether sales is for you. You do not need to know the small details of technology, none of the questions were related to their products, they were directed toward you and how you succeed
