Inside Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Employee in Redwood City, CA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in November 2013.

Interview

The interview was not difficult but it is worthwhile to be prepared for questions you know they might ask. The interview process involves 3 separate interviews round robin style. At the end you will have spoken to 2 RMs and a Director and they will each have met with 3 candidates before meeting to decide if you get an offer or a pass.
Typically the notice comes in a few days. You should close for the job in each interview. If you succeed you still have to wait for them to get the approval to formally say yes.
Know what Oracle is messaging and how that message relates to the target role. Be prepared to objection handle for the obvious resume facts... they will be looking for a solid acknowledgement of the question, a brief response to address it and then how you manage to steer the conversation in a positive direction. They will ask the "what's you biggest weakness?" question. Have examples or stories ready to talk about how you managed similar challenges or met similar goals in the past. Just make sure to ask for the job with every interviewer. If you don't it's an auto reject.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood Shores, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by multiple recruiters who weren't aware that the others had contacted me. I went to an onsite panel interview and got a call back from a recruiter to come in for a panel interview.
    The panel interview was interesting, there were 5 managers, one who played bad cop, one who played good cop.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Los Angeles, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied through university recruiting. I had two phone interviews and one on campus interview that asked many of the same questions - why sales? why oracle? They want to see that you are a competitive person and that you are genuinely interested in the position. They emphasized that they didn't want you to go through the process if you were unsure because many other students take the position and continue to look for other jobs.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    Interview

    Two phone interviews and an on-site interview that was very intense. Overall the hiring process was smooth and efficient, with interviewers helping to establish a friendly but professional dialogue with the interviewee. As I said before, the on-site at HQ was intense, but I came out of it feeling great and confident in my performance.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Washington, DC) in January 2015.

    Interview

    My first and second interviews with Oracle were over the phone. They recruiters, interviewers, and hiring managers want to make sure the interviewee is fluid and good at talking on the phone since a majority of the job is cold calling. Overall it was a good experience. The interviewer was friendly and easy to talk to, and didn't very difficult questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    They asked basic questions on my background, and there is a simple interview with the managers. The difficulty really depends on the manager I would say. There really isn't a multi-level interview process for associate level sales roles.
