    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Oracle (Reading, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Extremely regimental, I felt that they were picking me apart from the moment I walked in. 40 candidates at one assessment centre, this is far too many! Good group activities. Half of candidates were sent home after presentations. Current employees were not particularly approachable and were not welcoming. Management who interviewed me were even worse, straight faced, blunt and zero encouragement. No sense of humour. I knew immediately this was not a company I would like to work for. Companies preach so much about their values, yet this seemed a company that does not seem to practice them. Also, they said they would contact you with feedback by telephone whether you were successful or not in the job. I never received this phone call.

    Graduate Consultant Program Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Oracle (Reading, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through Pareto (Recruitment Firm) invited to attend an Assessment Centre in Reading. About 40 candidates there .
    Everyone introduced themselves and stated their greatest non-academic achievement.
    Group Tasks - too many people on a boat, who should stay on it & rank 15 items in order having crash landed in a desert via plane.
    3 min pitch to management why you want a career in consulting and why Oracle.
    Half the candidates leave at lunchtime.
    Afternoon consist of Q&A with current graduates, but throughout the day you go off for a 30 min interview with the manager/director of the service line that you have chosen.
    Once all candidates have been interview, the 20 of us got split into 3 groups to be told of the outcome. Some will start in March as they have graduated, some undergrads to start in July and the remainder were unsuccessful.
    Lunch was provided, I don't think travel was expensed but I never asked.

    Some people were told that they were successful but formal offers wouldn't be made until April/May because it depended on Oracle's performance in the quarter to determine whether they needed extra capacity to take us on. Found this odd because we were successful but no definite offer has been made.

    Cloud Computing Placement Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Oracle (Reading, England (UK)).

    Interview

    The interview was challenging, it was not your everyday same interview with 1v1 interviewer. My interview consisted of a panel of 4 interviewers interviewing me. The inteview itself was roughly 2hours. Before the actual interview commenced, I had to deliver a 20minute presentation with no powerpoint/notes. Yes I just freestyled. It was a notch harder than IBM's but if you passed IBM's interview this should not be a problem for you yes I also passed IBM's placement interview.
    The interview was all about showinh your character, personality and more importantly what you can offer. It is a two way process where you learn as much as giving it back.
    Remember do not be shy to name few Oracle's competitors, i.e IBM, Microsoft etc.
    Along with being honest and saying they are still a notch behind Microsoft. However, there long term goal is to eclipse Microsoft.
    My panel consisted of 4, where they all took turn in asking questions along with one member grilling your CV.
    I got a offer the following day!
