Software Developer Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Oracle (Seattle, WA) in November 2018.

Interview

I was referred for the position and a manager contacted me directly. The initial briefing round went really well. Very friendly and I was briefed on the team, the technologies and the next round. The next round was technical, the interviewer was very helpful, gave a clear problem statement and answered all my queries. I was then told that I would get a call for the next round and I never did. I mailed them a week later and I received a reply 3 weeks after that, asking me to contact the university hire recruiter without giving me a POC. I was royally ghosted after that. The manager and the technical interviewer were very nice, but the entire process is NOT worth it.

The onsite interviews had 4 rounds. First two rounds were technical. Simple algorithm questions and resume stuff. The best part of the interview was it was very casual and the interviewers were super friendly.

    The panel reviewed all questions about Semantic Web, which were conceptual, but all coding problems required big-o explanations and the advantages and disadvantages against the naive approach.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I had submitted my resume in one of the Career fair. I was later contacted by the HR to submit resume and within a couple of weeks got response from different teams. I was then asked for dates to fly to the head quarters and had interviews with 5 different teams. Most of the interviews started with HR questions and then moved to programming questions. The programming questions were mostly based on dynamic programming and recursion. The interviews were scheduled over 2 days. The HR contacted me in 2 weeks with the offer. The entire process was well organised.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Cupertino, CA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I emailed a manager for Internal transfer. He replied back and set up a Phone interview with one of the Principal engineers. But eventually had 2 phone interviews.
    The first interview was with the manager and second with the principal engineer.

    I had to schedule interview 2-3 times because the Principal engineer couldn't come up with a time. Also, one time, we set up a time but the engineer never called. We had to setup again.

    Apart from that, overall a positive experience. Will apply again after some months.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood City, CA).

    Interview

    The recruiter was very friendly and called me and flew me out to California without a first round interview. Beforehand I had to look at a list of different managers and their projects who were interested in my resume. I had to send back a list of managers who i would want to work with. When I got to California, I spent about ~1 hour with each manager and had to rank them in order of preference. The interviews ranged from mostly fit/personal questions and some technical questions.
