    Oracle Recruiter. Called the first question, what is your current Base and Commission. Why do you feel you have what it take to join Oracle. Can you work from home. Are you willing to travel 50% of the time? What process do you use to close a deal?

    Interview

    3 phone calls, very straightforward. You speak with the recruiter, then two managers on the phone. Some people have in person interviews. All of the interviews are essentially the same.

    Senior Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Oracle (Reston, VA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiting pre-screen interview was fairly straight forward. First round phone interview was as expected and matched the description provided by the recruiter. In-person interview with VP was completely different. Position description did not match what I was being asked for at all. I left feeling very confused.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Oracle (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Interestingly, the interview process is all managed and coordinated by the hiring manager and not thru HR. The process is long and requires multiple visits to Oracle offices. I had visit Oracle offices in multiple locations as well.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview

    Three different interviews, two over the phone and one in person.
    Depending of the department it might vary but if it is for technical support in the Micros POS department then it is really simple.
    First with the recruiter, usually background questions of previous jobs and personal information.
    Second interview, it is a bit more about your skills and usual help desk experience questions.
    Third interview, in person, same as the second just a bit more questions on the topics mentioned on the second interview.
    Then, the recruiter will get back at you with an offer, if everything went ok, FYI DO NOT believe everything the recruiters promise, such as raises and salary reviews if possible request that information as written.
    You can negotiate your salary, they will try to match your previous job or something less than that but you can negotiate it.
    The process might take a month depending on the background check.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    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

    Got contacted by a friend who told me Oracle was looking into hiring employees with Semantic Web background. Got a phone screen, after that, I got a panel interview using Cisco WebEx. After the process I got an offer.
    The panel reviewed all questions about Semantic Web, which were conceptual, but all coding problems required big-o explanations and the advantages and disadvantages against the naive approach.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle in April 2017.

    Interview

    Great turn around time. A few behavior and questions about your resume. 3 or 4 interviews total including a phone screen. They want to make sure you are a right fit for the position and make sure you are comfortable having conversations.
