    Interview

    Got contacted by a friend who told me Oracle was looking into hiring employees with Semantic Web background. Got a phone screen, after that, I got a panel interview using Cisco WebEx. After the process I got an offer.
    The panel reviewed all questions about Semantic Web, which were conceptual, but all coding problems required big-o explanations and the advantages and disadvantages against the naive approach.

    Sales and Business Development Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (San Francisco, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I met a recruiter at a career fair and listed my email at the booth. I received an email asking me to apply to the program if I was still interested. A day after I emailed her my resume, she asked to schedule a 30 min phone interview. This first interview you must be able to show that you did research on the position and explain why you're interested in sales. I think she also just wants to gauge if you are comfortable speaking on the phone. She moved me on a next round interview at the end of the phone call. My 30 min second round phone interview (about a week later) was with a sales manager and current employee at the Santa Monica office. They really grilled me on why I want to go into sales in this one. She referred me to the final round interview at the end of that call. I then scheduled my final interview at HQ in Redwood Shores. There I interviewed with the Class of Program manager and then waked around HQ with two of the employees there. That was more conversational and looking for fit but she still asked me interview-like questions. Overall, really positive experience. They move you really quickly through the recruitment pipeline and it's a pretty easy interviewing process.

    FYI, they really like when you "close" the interview. So at the end of each conversation, ask for feedback.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (San Francisco, CA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Oracle was recruiting at my university. First I had a 2:1 onsite interview with them at my university (with a recruiter and senior sales representative), this was followed by 2 phone interviews with higher level sales representatives and managers. Overall, very straightforward questions about why you want to work for Oracle and in the Business Development Representative role specifically.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Although most of the interviews were nice and Oracle is known for being a successful company, when I talked to recent college graduates that were a part of Oracle's Sales program, they didn't seem too satisfied with the job--the acknowledged that they had gotten a great training, but described the environment as cutthroat and numbers-oriented--this wasn't for me. There is also a LOT of cold calling involved, which isn't something that resonated with me.
