    Average Interview

    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

    Interview

    Recruiter on college reached out to me. It was just a few interviews with the team. Didn't talk to hiring manager at all. Overall, it was pretty easy, even for an inexperience person

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood Shores, CA

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood Shores, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was directly called onsite because of a referral. I had 3 interviews with 3 different teams, in 2 different campuses. Overall the questions weren't too hard but I could have prepared more. In the morning I had a meeting with HR. Typically I'm guessing you would have a phone interview but I bypassed this because I was referred.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle in October 2016.

    Interview

    After meeting the recruiter at my University's career fair we set up a next-day interview on campus. This was a general screening to see if you're a good fit for the company, questions were pretty basic and very relaxed throughout. I heard back from the recruiter within a week letting me know that I moved on to a second interview; this one was over the phone with a regional manager in the sales department. Again, the interview was very casual and conversational. They want to make sure that you will fit the Oracle culture. After a week or so, I got a call from the recruiter who presented me with an offer which I gladly accepted. The process was pretty straight-forward from start to finish. The recruiter did an excellent job of staying in touch even though they were in the middle of visiting other campuses each week.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Oracle in October 2016.

    Interview

    Met with a recruiter for an informational session -- conversation lasted on hour long and she treated it as a preliminary screening. Had the next round over the phone with a manager in Boston; also very conversational. Waited for my final interview (third round) to be in-person on campus with a hiring manager. He was great and easy to talk to.

    Sales and Business Development Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Austin, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    There was an initial phone screen with a recruiter, then two interviews in the office (one-on-one with a manager), followed by another phone interview. The first manager was very friendly, while the second was a bit more standoffish. Not sure if they were playing good cop-bad cop or if it was just their personalities.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Boston, MA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Reached out to a recruiter through LinkedIn. She immediately got back and asked for my resume. From there she sent my a ton of information and called me the next day to discuss to program and career opportunity. My school wasn't part of the recruiting list so it took a lot to "woo" them at first but I lucked out and got a rock-star recruiter who made me feel like the top candidate during every call and email we exchanged. Experience through internships is the MAJOR key to getting noticed. Doing my homework was HUGE and it shows how much effort you put in. Applying for the Class Of program is like taking an extra course because that is how much effort you should put into the interview process. From there we had three interviews ( Recruiter>Regional>Regional). Easiest interviews, but if you wing it then you won't move on. PERIOD. My recruiter pulled really hard for me to get in and the Director approved. I was invited in for a networking night where they showed my the office and other people who were hired. This program is the best opportunity if you are looking for a career in sales.
