    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The recruiters and hiring managers are very professional and responsive. They all replied my emails very quickly and told me exactly what will happen next.

    The interviews were typical 3 stages process and took about 3 months to get the offer.

    I got an email from the recruiter said she would like to have a call with me to discuss my application. She is very friendly and explained in details what this role is about.

    There was a technical interview one week after the screening. The hiring manager is very knowledgeable and knows clearly what type of background and skills he is looking for. He asked very detailed about what I have done in my previous projects and many related technology questions.

    I thought I didnt do very well but the recruiter told me that the hiring manager would like to move forward :) The final interview was a presentation to directors, managers and team members. It was very challenging because they played different roles and asked me all kinds of questions. They challenged me on every slide and some questions were very tricky.

    I didnt negotiated the package because its what I asked for.
