    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Oracle (San Antonio, TX).

    Interview

    I applied online through their recurring website. The recruiter worked out of California and asked very basic questions about my experience. I then had a phone interview with a hiring manager who also asked questions about my experience and told me about the opportunity. No creative questions really, all very straight forward.

    Interview

    The interviewer seemed hostile and acted like he'd rather be doing something else. You could tell he was not interested in the first few minutes. Probably just trying to fill quotas or something. I was trying to get a flow of the conversation but he was super awkward.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I applied through my school's career services website and was invited to an on campus interview. The first interview was with Oracle's recruiter and lasted about 15 minutes. He asked basic questions about my qualifications (major, GPA, etc.). Right after I was sent into another room with two men on the sales team and they asked more in-depth questions about my qualifications (past experience, sales ability, etc.). The younger man made me feel uncomfortable as he kept looking me up and down, and spent quite a bit of time on his phone. I'm not sure if this was done on purpose or if he was just being disrespectful.

    Interview

    Quick and efficient. Standard process: phone interview with a recruiter, then on site with five different interviewers. The interview was hard but the interviewer were personable and open. All were very candid answering my answers.

    Applications Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood City, CA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Several series of interviews, including 2 over-the-phone interviews, 1 off-site in-person interview, and 2 on-site in-person presentation interviews. They said this was not a typical interview process, and that I had to go through extra interviews. They said the typical process is a phone interview with the recruiter, then a phone interview with the hiring manager, then an in-person presentation with the hiring manager and team. I spent a total of 2 months and 3 vacation days interviewing.

    I like their management team, their direction, and I like their benefits, but I wish they had offered a livable salary for the San Francisco Bay Area.

    Interview Questions

    • Why should we hire you?
      How would you be a good fit for Oracle?
      What do you do day-to-day?
      How did I find accounts?
      How would you sift through and quickly get set up with thousands of accounts?
      There are 3 different teams - finance, CX, and ERP; which team do you see yourself on?
      They also asked me a series of questions about my product during the presentation.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    No salary was negotiated until the end. They asked for and I gave my salary for the last 5 years. They came back with 40-50% less than what GlassDoor had set my expectations to be, and it was also 25% less than what I was currently making. I requested more for cost of living . HR stuck firm with their lowball offer. declined the job offer due to the salary being significantly lower than the cost-of-living for the area.

    To the hiring manager's credit, he tried to get a higher salary. I appreciate him trying - it shows that the management is very good and fights for their team, but HR is inflexible.
