    Sales Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Oracle (San Jose, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    multiple interviews and presentations. The toughest part was the large amount of other candidates. The interview process started with 2 hour long phone calls that were pretty vague. Then came the in person interviews that lasted over an hour each time. The first one was a grilling session about fit and dealing with many tough circumstances. The second was a presentation and continuation of the grilling session. All in all its what you would expect at a large organization trying to find someone committed that is the right fit for the difficult job at hand.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reston, VA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Reston, VA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    A group of about 7 of us were brought in to interview with 3 different market sector directors within oracle direct. Not a true group interview, rather we interviewed individually with one at a time, if that makes sense. Coming from the military, I did not experience their traditional interview method, each interviewer said as much at the start of each one. the standard type is rumored to involve a lot of sales skills and scenario type questions. The process took a total of 3.5 hours pretty evenly split between the 3 interviewers. Considering that I have no real software or direct sales experience, they did a pretty good job of focusing on the intangibles; those fundamental qualities which a successful salesman requires. They are starting a program to try to take advantage of the military veterans and those qualities they bring to the table. Understand they are in the beginning phases and still developing the methodology to train and transition a veteran from the military mindset to software sales. Great intent with genuine enthusiasm behind the initiative. I'm sounding like a spokesman for the company but I'm really not. At this moment I'm waiting for a call to discuss a possible offer so I have no real vested interest in making them sound great, I have no offer yet.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Oracle in January 2012.

    Interview

    Several rounds--takes a while. First phone, then phone again with a manager, then in person with a group, then presentation, then offer. After the offer comes their SUPER intense background check (which every big company does now), several rounds of approvals which eventually makes its way to the CEO's office. Interview, background check, and finally the official offer takes a while so be patient.
