Easy Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood Shores, CA) in December 2015.

Interview

1) Submitted my resume at a college career fair at the end of September. 2) Was contacted by a recruiter at the end of October, who requested to schedule an onsite interview in December at Oracle HQ. Oracle tends to interview candidates on Thursday, flew out on Wednesday night. 2) During the interview day, met with two project groups that were interested in my resume. Originally there were five project groups, but they likely filled their spots before I had arrived onsite. Met directly with the hiring managers for about an hour each, interview questions will vary greatly between project groups. 3) Heard back from the recruiter 3-4 days later.

Interview Questions

    Interview

    Was contacted by the campus recruiter for Oracle by email and asked to send in an updated resume. I think they must have gotten my resume through the career fair..

    Sent in my resume, and I was called for an on site interview directly. There was no phone interview which was surprising to me. The interview process was quite straight forward and it lasted one day. Started early morning (around 8:30 or 9) and left the Oracle office by 7 PM...

    I think I interviewed with around 6 teams, all in database group based on my resume. After the interview, I was contacted in 10 days with an offer, and I could chose any team I want...

    The interview was not difficult. And alot of the interview was focused on my past projects, so Operating Systems and Networking, File Systems etc. There were some minor coding questions but they didnt stress too much on Algos/data structures.

    Some questions (concurrency based) were quite intricate and required a very deep understanding of the process stack and parameter passing and what not... But what I really found was that the questions were very much based on what these guys use everyday, rather than any gotcha questions to stifle the candidate. All the interviewers were great, very polite and I felt very comfortable throughout the process....

    Interview Questions

    • I was given a code snippet, which involved multi threading and was asked to find a race condition. The race condition was very subtle and was not explicit in the code.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Not much room for negotiaiton, since it was a college hire and it was my first job.
