    Principal License Consultant Interview

    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.

    Two telephone interviews. Sounded really interested and then there were long lags before the reached out again.

    Principal Sales Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Albany, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Great interviews with the hiring team, position had been open for 5 months and things were fast-tracked to get a resource on-site and contributing. However, after negotiating and receiving an offer from the hiring manager, the Recruiter wanted me to provide my salary in my current position before sending out an Offer letter. I declined and replied my current position has different responsibilities and the work is not related (current job is post-sales, new position is pre-sales). The Recruiter insisted and added how would it look if Oracle hired someone making $80K and this had to go through 5 levels of review? I gave the recruiter a range on my current salary and told her I needed to prepare for my call at 2:30. Later I received an email from the same Recruiter that Oracle declined to give me an Offer.
