    Software Development Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Oracle (South San Francisco, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewer was 35 minutes late and didn’t have my resume with him. His only recollection about my background was that I used to be a VP at my last few jobs. Based on that recollection he started our 17 minutes long conversation with an advise to look for a job someplace else since the position I applied for has only six direct reports. Remaining 15 minutes were spent between an extensive set of questions about inner working of Kafka (interviewer spent an extra minute or two to make sure I understand Kafka has no subscribers, only consumers) and an unexpected (I was on my phone) on-screen coding problem he had a bit of a trouble formulating. Approximately 17 minutes after interview started, hiring manager abruptly interrupted the conversation and said he has to run for another urgent meeting (5:35pm on Friday). I guess he wasn’t much pleased with the conversation either.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood Shores, CA).

    Interview

    It started with a handful of phone interviews with the recruiter, and then the hiring manager. Both teams did intensive reviews of my background and experience. Because of the phone interviews, the in office interviews were somewhat easy -- mostly conversational and a few behavioral questions.

    Sales and Business Development Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Santa Monica, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied at my school's career fair and was reached out to by a recruiter in mid-January. The entire process took 3 weeks, and consisted of 3 interviews (two phone, one on site). The first interview was with Katie, a recruiter, and was a general screening to test interest in the position, review relevant past sales experiences, and overall see if I was a match with the company culture. I got the offer for a second round interview immediately. The second round was with a regional manager and was more in depth about sales and covered extensively the exact roles and responsibilities of a BDR at Oracle. I also got an offer to move to the next round immediately, and went on site to the Santa Monica office for my final interview. That one was a bit harder, and the regional manager interviewing me was really trying to see if I had what it took to be in Sales and asked me more technical/situational questions.

    The overall interview process was relaxed and not too hard. They take extra lengths to make you feel comfortable, and they clearly want to help you succeed. It is important to do your research beforehand, and if you have any relevant sales experience to really emphasize that!

    Interview Questions

    • Why Oracle?
      Why Sales?
      Describe to me what you think this position is/what a BDR does?
      What other companies are you interviewing with?
      Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years?

    Sales and Business Development Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (San Francisco, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I met a recruiter at a career fair and listed my email at the booth. I received an email asking me to apply to the program if I was still interested. A day after I emailed her my resume, she asked to schedule a 30 min phone interview. This first interview you must be able to show that you did research on the position and explain why you're interested in sales. I think she also just wants to gauge if you are comfortable speaking on the phone. She moved me on a next round interview at the end of the phone call. My 30 min second round phone interview (about a week later) was with a sales manager and current employee at the Santa Monica office. They really grilled me on why I want to go into sales in this one. She referred me to the final round interview at the end of that call. I then scheduled my final interview at HQ in Redwood Shores. There I interviewed with the Class of Program manager and then waked around HQ with two of the employees there. That was more conversational and looking for fit but she still asked me interview-like questions. Overall, really positive experience. They move you really quickly through the recruitment pipeline and it's a pretty easy interviewing process.

    FYI, they really like when you "close" the interview. So at the end of each conversation, ask for feedback.
