Program Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Redwood Shores, CA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood Shores, CA) in October 2011.

Interview

Spoke with a recruiter first, then the hiring manager, then the director. All were very pleasant and helpful, trying to make sure it was the right fit for them and for me. All over the phone, except one in-person visit with the hiring manager, who gave me a brief tour of HQ. Once the offer was extended, they gave me a chance to think it over and negotiate a bit. Glad I accepted.

Interview Questions

  • Nothing in particular--we discussed my skills and experience, and I had people familiar with the my work that recommended me.   Answer Question

Negotiation

Yes, there was a bit of back and forth as I considered other offers, as well. They weren't able to fully match another offer, but I knew it was a better fit.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Oracle (Brussels (Belgium)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Oracle has a highly professional recruiting organization. The recruiting team will organize the whole cycle, the interviews, the background checks, reference checks, and the set up of the recruiting cycle. Business leaders are heavily involved, put you to the test and ask relevant questions, often by letting you present your view on a case study. You will present this in front of the main decision makers. All very professional and thorough. Real good recruiting process in my point of view

    Interview Questions

    • Case study that you need to prepare and present
      Motivation, view on Oracle, the value you can add to Oracle and the other way around

    It was worst. No time management. Schedules were changed frequently. People never kept their words. The emails only flowed, not actions. Very pathetic experience. The cycle was long.

    Program Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Oracle in April 2009.

    Interview

    I met with an Oracle recruiter on-site at a career fair and applied to be a program manager directing customer success programs. The interview consisted of two stages: one phone interview and one on-site interview at the headquarters. The phone interview was purely behavioral with the questions relating to what you would do in certain scenarios regarding deadlines, project management, and teamwork. The on-site interview was a more rigorous version of this.

    Interview Questions

    • You have a project that involves both technical and non-technical teams. You meet with the technical team and jot down their understanding of what needs to be done and need to translate the project requirements to the non-technical team. How would you approach translating the information and presenting it to your managers?   1 Answer
