    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Santa Clara, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    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
