    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Oracle (Oakland, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    This was for the BMC group, which is much different than the rest of Oracle.

    I had a phone screen with an HR person, then a phone interview with the director. Then I came in for a full day of interviews.

    The interview was very informal, more like 5, 1 hour conversations, than an interview. The difficult part is that there was no job description, which made it hard to prepare.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted directly by the hiring manager within one week of applying online.They set up the phone interview directly.My schedule was very relaxed and I co-operated with scheduling.Finished 3 rounds of interview (30 mins each)within 10 days.The hiring manager was very prompt with the follow-up and was a delight to work with.They scheduled an on site immediately and even send me the detailed instructions about how to get there.It was very smooth and professional until the recruiters stepped in.

    I had my 3rd round which was a phone interview with VP.The recruiter here made a mess of my situation.She set up the on site interview with the same VP again.

    Fast forward to day of onsite interview....3 hours before the interview (I was already on my way to the HQ),I get an email from recruiter saying that the interview was cancelled because they realized that I already spoke with the VP.I immediately followed up with my hiring manager and told him what happened.He said that there was a small mix up but I was in contention to meet the Senior VP.One week later I follow-up with the recruiter to schedule the on site interview ASAP.He tells me that the hiring manager is vetting other candidates and will schedule an onsite along with another candidate.A week later,I get a mail from recruiter that the hiring manager is reviewing between me and another candidate. I followed up with recruiter again and he tells me that the hiring manager decided to go forward with the other candidate.I get the usual “thank-you-for-your-time-and-goodluck-with-the-job-search” mail.I am shattered with this experience.

    The recruiters are very unprofessional and don't even know small basic things like double checking with the concerned interviewers before scheduling the interview.I understand that recruiters are very busy but I cannot respect them If they can't even do their basics right.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Oracle (South San Francisco, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewer was 35 minutes late and didn’t have my resume with him. His only recollection about my background was that I used to be a VP at my last few jobs. Based on that recollection he started our 17 minutes long conversation with an advise to look for a job someplace else since the position I applied for has only six direct reports. Remaining 15 minutes were spent between an extensive set of questions about inner working of Kafka (interviewer spent an extra minute or two to make sure I understand Kafka has no subscribers, only consumers) and an unexpected (I was on my phone) on-screen coding problem he had a bit of a trouble formulating. Approximately 17 minutes after interview started, hiring manager abruptly interrupted the conversation and said he has to run for another urgent meeting (5:35pm on Friday). I guess he wasn’t much pleased with the conversation either.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Oracle (San Francisco, CA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screen with recruiter went well, and I appreciated the recruiters transparency. They did ask me for my current salary, which I thought was off putting in an initial call. Interview was in their San Francisco office. The interview room was not booked for the entire time, so it was necessary to move conference rooms. The office was fairly quiet, so it was hard to accurately gauge culture of the workplace during my interview.
