    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview

    Interview process was easy. The hire process was slow and painful. Limited information available to anyone, numerous levels of bureaucracy.

    The interview process is a joke for sales. If you can show some track record and experience selling they will hire you. That said, if you survive is another matter. The approach is hire many and see who survives a year with an Oracle sales quota.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Not a lot of negotiation. Little movement on the Oracle side.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Oracle (San Francisco, CA) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I was recruited through LinkedIn and on-campus recruiting at Cal. I was being interviewed for the January Sales Academy start date and the process was very fast. Attended an information session, had a 30-minute in-person interview, 20-minute phone interview, and received my offer. All within a week or so.

    Interview Questions

    • No questions were difficult. Some I was simply not prepared for, such as "tell me awards you have recently won." If they like you, you'll just end up chatting.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiation almost impossible. The hiring process is so streamlined, almost everyone gets the same automated offer. But it's a good offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Bellevue, WA) in November 2009.

    Interview

    Initial interview was by phone with remote hiring manager. 2nd interview was in-person with hiring manager. 3rd interview was by phone with peer to hiring manager. 4th interview was in-person with peer to hiring manager. 5th interview was by phone with Executive to hiring manager. Very regimented process, but didn't seem to follow any formal structure. Although the hiring manager made the final decision, the other interviewees had to be "on board".
