    Research Assistant () Interview

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

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied through university internal website. No news for almost two months and then 2 interviews were quickly scheduled. Two hours after the second interview, got the positive feedback for the next stage which was another same set of 2 interviews three days later. After two days, got the offer that I accepted.
    Typical interview : Had time to present myself and my projects (5min) before diving into not-so-hard technical questions (compared to Facebook or Google). I noticed that the interviewers were really well-prepared about my CV.

    Technology Sales Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA).

    Interview

    The interview process was easy. As part of the Class Of program, Oracle hires college graduates from a select list of colleges and meeting a certain GPA. After submitting my application through my college career counselor / posting on my university's career website, I was contacted by a recruiter and asked to set up a Skype interview. After this, I was told that I would need to complete a background check and pending that, I was likely to receive an offer. Within a week I received an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Initial phone call from Recruiter. Phone interview by hiring manager. Flight to HQ to give a 20 minute sales presentation on any topic to a group of 10-12 people, followed immediately by a group interview for 45 minutes. Verbal offer was given within 48 hours. Formal offer arrived via email in an additional 10 days due to the background check time. Altogether a very pleasant, organized, and fast process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Went in to the office for multiple interviews. Very very long process, would never hear anything back for weeks, even a month in between interviews. Then all of a sudden they had to see me again the very next day. Did not get much feedback, but clearly they are do not make decisions quickly!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process is quite strange. No phone interview, on site interview directly.
    Purchased the flight tickets before getting a schedule of the interview.
    The interview schedule was sent to me just the day before the interview date. No idea what groups to meet when I was taking the flight.

    Application

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

    Interview

    The interview process varies from department to department often done at the discretion of the hiring manager for the position. Generally speaking, after a phone screen from the recruiter, a panel style interview is conducted with several situational interview questions to understand the candidate's similar experience handing a similar scenario (e.g, Tell me about a time when you had to sacrifice quality in order to meet a deadline. What did you do? How did you prioritize the activity?). A second and final interview with the hiring manager is often likely, although depending on the role may not be needed.
