    Program Coordinator Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Oracle (Seattle, WA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied to Oracle's Cloud Division (Sparta) through a personal referral at the end of May. They reached out in mid-June to schedule a quick call. Although I responded immediately, it took 4 days for a response. This call ended up being a formal 30 minute phone interview with the hiring manager, for which I was unprepared since the email communications had only mentioned that we would be chatting about possible future opportunities. From that point, I was told a recruiter and recruiting coordinator would be in touch and that I would be invited in for an interview loop. The recruiting coordinator got in touch right away, but was unable to schedule my interview loop until three weeks later. The recruiter reached out for available times for another phone sync, but never scheduled this phone sync and never communicated with me again (even though I followed up). I interviewed in person in mid-July - a 4+ hour interview loop that was five separate interviews with seven people. The interview loop itself went well, without any major curve balls, and everyone was super nice. However, based on their recruiting packet as well as my conversations with the hiring manager, I was expecting a quick response within a week. After a week and a half, I followed up on the status of the position and have received no communication since )it's now been over 3 1/2 weeks). Based on all of the communication challenges and lack of follow-up, I would not recommend interviewing at Oracle.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Oracle (Seattle, WA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The process is unnecessarily exhausting. 5 separate individual interviewer; 6 hrs onsite interview; start of the interview process was disorganized in many ways. Repetitions in questions asked, as well as in scenario questions presented; people and environment felt very uptight; a number of folks appeared very official and unfriendly....

    Technical Project Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Seattle, WA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I responded to a posting on LinkedIn and applied on their Website. I also had a friend refer me directly to the hiring manager. Each step of the process took days or weeks and frequently became stalled. Had I not had a friend who worked there and escalated each step, I am fairly confident that I would not have had an interview. They requested that I come in for an informational interview so they could figure out where I would fit because they had so many positions open. Following that, they requested that I come in for a full day of interviews. After the in-person interview, they sent me a rejection email saying that it is their policy to not provide specific feedback, but they decided that I didn't have the right background. Ordinarily, that would be fair feedback, but at this point, we had been talking for at least three weeks, they had my resume the whole time, they decided where I would be the best fit, and I have extensive experience in this area. I am not sure what the issue was, but I doubt that it had anything to do with my background. After sending me a rejection email, all communication ceased. Despite them claiming to need 900 new hires, they won't return an email anymore. Am I unfit for all positions? I am left with the impression of a highly disorganized, dysfunctional recruiting process that does not respect the time of candidates. I have no idea how they will hit their hiring goals.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    Interview for starting cloud business. The team seemed really cool but the offer stage turned me off completely. They wanted all this info without giving an offer. Pretty non-standard and I felt like they were just fishing for information. I don't think I would interview with them again based on that alone. For the most part, I really liked that team I was going to work with--I just don't think their recruiting end was very good especially given the fact that they want to be competitive.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Seattle, WA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interview process started by connecting with recruiter on LinkedIn. The recruiter was very nice, well informed, and asked the right questions. Stated my skills are a great match to 2 different positions they were recruiting for. I applied to the positions and we went through a formal phone screen. The recruiter then forwarded my information to the hiring manager. The hiring manager said they would call between Monday and Wednesday. They never called so I reached out to the hiring manager for status. Was told the manager would call me sometime between Thursday and Friday. On Monday, without a call from the manager I called the hiring manager to decline the position. Felt that if the manager was not responsive in the hiring process that indicates the type of manager they would be.

    Disappointed as I am eager to work for Oracle and would love a PM position.
