    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview

    Interaction with teams and Director. More of an informal problem solving and exploratory format than a grilling technical interview. First, meet members from multiple candidate teams to see what might fit you/them. Then there is usually a more drawn out slightly more technical interview with some 2 or 3 members. Lastly, interaction with management to finish.

    Principal License Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Rocklin, CA

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Rocklin, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I have a colleague who referred me for this position. The license management recruiter called and told me to expect the hiring manager to set up an interview. The Hiring Manager emailed 2 weeks after the recruiter and set up the interview for 2 weeks after the email. My interview lasted 1.5 hours and consisted of a sit down with 3 license consultants followed by a sit down with the hiring manager and another senior manager and finally another sitdown with another senior manager. The tone was friendly and the managers/consultants spend about as much time explaining the position as they did asking and listening to my answers. One week after the interview, I received a verbal offer that I accepted. My start date was 3 weeks after I accepted the offer. Overall, it was a pleasant experience. My colleague had prepped me on questions and salary range prior to the interview, which helped tremendously.
