    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (San Francisco, CA).

    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.

    Applied through a recruiter from my University's career fair. Had a very short phone screen, then an in person interview with two different managers.

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

    Interview

    The overall process took about a month with my interviews taking place over the course of 3 weeks and I received the actual job offer in the 4th week. I had a total of 4 phone interviews: 2 were with recruiters that served as pre-screen calls to vet me and see if I was a good fit for the company and role and the other 2 were with people closer to the role and had more role specific questions.

    Product Marketing Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted directly by the hiring manager within one week of applying online.They set up the phone interview directly.My schedule was very relaxed and I co-operated with scheduling.Finished 3 rounds of interview (30 mins each)within 10 days.The hiring manager was very prompt with the follow-up and was a delight to work with.They scheduled an on site immediately and even send me the detailed instructions about how to get there.It was very smooth and professional until the recruiters stepped in.

    I had my 3rd round which was a phone interview with VP.The recruiter here made a mess of my situation.She set up the on site interview with the same VP again.

    Fast forward to day of onsite interview....3 hours before the interview (I was already on my way to the HQ),I get an email from recruiter saying that the interview was cancelled because they realized that I already spoke with the VP.I immediately followed up with my hiring manager and told him what happened.He said that there was a small mix up but I was in contention to meet the Senior VP.One week later I follow-up with the recruiter to schedule the on site interview ASAP.He tells me that the hiring manager is vetting other candidates and will schedule an onsite along with another candidate.A week later,I get a mail from recruiter that the hiring manager is reviewing between me and another candidate. I followed up with recruiter again and he tells me that the hiring manager decided to go forward with the other candidate.I get the usual “thank-you-for-your-time-and-goodluck-with-the-job-search” mail.I am shattered with this experience.

    The recruiters are very unprofessional and don't even know small basic things like double checking with the concerned interviewers before scheduling the interview.I understand that recruiters are very busy but I cannot respect them If they can't even do their basics right.
