    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Overall, very relaxed. There were two interviewers from the team and they both just asked questions to get to know me. The office is very nice and inviting and the location is beautiful. The actual interview lasted no more than 45 minutes and was conducted in a small office room. The interviewers walked me out afterward and told me we would be in contact. The position went to someone else though.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Oracle has a list of universities, if your university is in the list and your GPA is higher than 3.7 or 3.8, you are likely to get the interview. And depends on your skill set, you will be likely to place at different department.
    As for intern, because intern stay a short time, so most interns are technical interns doing prototyping and UI engineering.
    First was phone call interview, this was a 1-1 questions and answers. And after the answers walked through some projects that designers had done before. Meanwhile, Oracle interviewer would check if these projects matched to any specific team.

    I got an interview from a career fair on my college campus. The process was pretty short with just a phone interview with the career fair recruiter then another phone interview and then I got the job offer. The phone interviews were mostly behavioral questions and weren't anything hard. The process went very smoothly and was very quick.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Overall very easy. I was recruited via LinkedIn, then had 3 phone interviews (probably because I lived in a different part of the state). First was with a recruiter and the second with a Sales Manager, the third with a Regional Manager (both in the Sales Org). Total process took less than 3 weeks. Recruiters were helpful in prepping questions, answering any questions for tips, etc.

    Interview Questions

    • Why Oracle, why sales, tell me about your background and work experience, tell me of a goal you accomplished you are proud of, how do you handle rejection, do you prefer working in a team or individual, what are your long-term career goals   Answer Question

    Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Oracle (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Met with 3 Groups on 2 different days. Oracle people are very nice, from Recruiters to managers. They managed to create a pleasant conversational environment and never put pressure on you. Very few technical questions, the process is quite smooth. They arranged lunch with two alumni, very informative and considerate. But they raise a high bar for selecting candidates for onsite. I think this is why Oracle interview is easy but still can hire talented people.

    Interview Questions

    • It depends on groups that are interested in you. Some groups asks algorithm coding questions while others place more emphasis on communication and behavior. Anyway, you can assume nothing in advance, be prepared for data structure, algorithms and basic technical questions. After all, for a software engineer position, the responsibility is to write code every day.   Answer Question
