Director Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle in July 2019.

Interview

First conversation was with a recruiter. The interviewer was very thorough and provided a great level of detail about what to expect in the interview process for the role, including overall timing. Based on this conversation, I anticipated a very positive and well managed interview experience.

First round was with the hiring manager and then followed by a subsequent interview round with potential peers on the team. The next steps after that were unclear, and then all communication from the recruiter stopped. I followed up with the recruiter to ask for status on the position, and my candidacy, and never received any response at all. I was surprised by the lack of any response. I found that to be highly unprofessional and think it reflects poorly on the organization.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Oracle (Burlington, MA) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Applied online, spoke with excellent recruiter who very professional, followed by call with hiring manager who was professional and cordial as well. Then was scheduled with a few "panel" members who would be peers for further interviewing. I was told the interview would be in person in the Burlington Mass office. I emailed the hiring managers sec'y the morning of the first interview to verify which building the interview would take place. The hiring managers' sec'y then emailed back and said it was a phone interview - NO ONE had told me that up to 2 hours before the interview. I scrambled to find an appropriate venue to do a phone interview with three people through webx on my phone. The three peers appeared to be dubious of the need to hire someone "outside" the organization vs internally (they seemed to already have made their mind up on that) toward the end of the interview, I asked them specfic questions about the role, their successes, strategies, and why they believed they worked.....all three seemed to be annoyed that I asked so many questions of them (a total of 6 questions). In all my experience in hiring and firing employees, I would never hire someone who couldn't ask me at least a few questions that were relevant and showed a genuine interest in the position. I finished the interview on the phone that day. I was scheduled for another round two interview two days later with different peers. I heard nothing the next day at all - late in the day prior to the second phone interview I received a google calendar cancellation notice for the second interview - that's was it - no explanation, no thank you for your time, nothing - just a "cancellation" notice with no feedback at all. I had thought maybe Oracle had turned a corner and had become more professional, polished, and engaged with their people over the years -but apparently not. It's really sad that an organization like this can treat an applicant this way - I can only imagine how they truly treat their employees - probably just as bad as ever. I believe things like this happen for a reason though,and perhaps I dodged a bullet. As many businesses I speak to daily say, " Oracle doesn't have customers - they have hostages" - which is true - and soon enough those hostages will leave for better cloud based compnaies like AWS that will end up eating their lunch.

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Oracle (Seattle, WA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The process is unnecessarily exhausting. 5 separate individual interviewer; 6 hrs onsite interview; start of the interview process was disorganized in many ways. Repetitions in questions asked, as well as in scenario questions presented; people and environment felt very uptight; a number of folks appeared very official and unfriendly....

    Interview

    Interview process is very lengthy which includes a background check. Think in terms of several months to complete the process. Depending on department, there can be 1:1 or a panel interview. 3 main aspects: experience (competitor or customer), comp and ability to adapt.
