Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (San Francisco, CA).

Interview

Got contacted by a friend who told me Oracle was looking into hiring employees with Semantic Web background. Got a phone screen, after that, I got a panel interview using Cisco WebEx. After the process I got an offer.
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.

    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.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Oracle (Tysons Corner, VA) in December 2012.

    Interview

    They phone screen first asking general questions about what you're interested in, hobbies etc. They explain the job role. Then they invite you into the office and ask a few technical questions or 'what would you do in this situation' type stuff. Sometimes they say things that aren't technically accurate on purpose to see if you call them out. A little bit of whiteboard code writing and diagramming.
