    Senior Sales Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Palo Alto, CA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at Oracle (Palo Alto, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Interview with individuals: Recruiter, 3 Managers, Presentation for 5 managers / director

    The recruiters that work at Oracle are terrible. The communication was horrific. The recruiter said he would offer me 100-120K and then I talked to the hiring manager and he said 85K. The hiring process was painfully long. I literally didn't hear back until 5 months later. I didn't take the job because it paid significantly lower than what the recruiter told me. Also, the recruiter said the traveling would 40 % and it turns out it is 70-80 % according to the hiring manager. The communication at Oracle is awful. So, if you are experiencing any of this, I apologize -- you're not alone!

    Initially a phone screen by recruiter then a phone interview. I had 4 1 to 1 interviews onsite. 3 technical round and 1 behavioral. Not very tough. At the end of the process I talked with the hiring manager and he says the work is in a complete different language than which I was interested. I had already stated my interest and this was dissapointing
