    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Madison, WI) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Spoke with an HR representative who found me via the university registrar. After having an enjoyable conversation and conducting my due diligence on the firm, I became excited about the opportunity and followed up to express my interest. I subsequently had my second and third round interviews with a relatively quick turnaround. All of the interviewers were immensely friendly and open about their experiences with the firm. In fact, the interviewers taught me some valuable lessons about general sales tactics and also Oracle products.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Three interviews, two on the phone and one in person. In the first two is about how you sound on the phone because the job is largely based on cold calling. They want to make sure that you will stay with the job for awhile and not just do it for a few months and leave. And the third interview is the final round to make sure you are the right fit.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Charlottesville, VA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Straight-forward, but somewhat long process. Three interviews, all over the phone (one was supposed to be in person but flight was cancelled). Basic questions running through your resume, why Oracle and basic job fit questions. I applied through a career fair and was set up for an interview that week. The next two interviews came around two/three weeks after, resulting in an offer.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in November 2016.

    I had submitted my resume in one of the Career fair. I was later contacted by the HR to submit resume and within a couple of weeks got response from different teams. I was then asked for dates to fly to the head quarters and had interviews with 5 different teams. Most of the interviews started with HR questions and then moved to programming questions. The programming questions were mostly based on dynamic programming and recursion. The interviews were scheduled over 2 days. The HR contacted me in 2 weeks with the offer. The entire process was well organised.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Oracle (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    Was found by a recruiter who was excellent. The process was extremely long and detailed. I think I met with 12 people either in 1:1s or in panel presentations. That said, everyone was nice and professional and smart - and my interest grew with each meeting...but it did become tedious
