    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood Shores, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was directly called onsite because of a referral. I had 3 interviews with 3 different teams, in 2 different campuses. Overall the questions weren't too hard but I could have prepared more. In the morning I had a meeting with HR. Typically I'm guessing you would have a phone interview but I bypassed this because I was referred.

    HCM Business Developent Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood Shores, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    4 Phone Interviews, one face to face. Had to submit a portfolio of work to the recruiter after the interview and then had to create a business case and also had to send that to the recruiter as well. They did change the job description after that and asked if I was ok with it. It was fine, was not too much different however they did lower the offer by $5000 a year as well.
    I was offered the job (yeah!) and I was sent a congratulations email with the benefits too. They ran the background check which went fine. Was told the offer letter would arrive shortly. I followed-up for three months and never received the offer and I am still waiting. The said they were reorganization the HCM Marketing Department however, I have looked on linked-in and many people have been hired in that HCM division. This was very disappointing and seems a tad unprofessional. I am now looking for another job.

    Interview

    I learned about the job and submitted my resume at a campus career fair.
    A recruiter contacted me in January to set up an initial phone interview.
    There were 3 interviews total: initial phone interview with recruiter -> phone interview with someone who went through the program and is now on the sales team -> final interview at Oracle HQ with a manager.
    Questions were similar in all 3 interviews, mostly behavioral questions and asking about past experiences to learn more about you, nothing technical.

    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.
