Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oracle (Bengaluru (India)).

Interview

HR called and scheduled interview even though i told them that i was a misfit for the requirement... there were 3 rounds of interview...the technical interviewer asked me my salary which i didnt like. he gave some performance problem to solve..followed by another round where he asked to find complexity of some programs and followed by another round where they asked couple of programming questions...at the end they said they will get back to me (which obviously means they didnt like me) and i also didnt like them due to the interviewer attitude..they were very disinterested in the whole process..

    Negotiation

    Appears to be a big company with a lot of "process" in hiring. It appears to be better to negotiate salary, etc. before the offer is made because going back to change an offer appears to require a lot of justification, signatures, delays.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Oracle (Santa Clara, CA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    One phone interview, then an afternoon of 1:1 interviews on site. After that, another day of 4 1:1 interviews, and finally a phone negotiation with HR.

    First technical interviews were very standard and focused on my background and included a group interview and impromptu presentation. Questions focused on Java programming and some general algorithm analysis, as well as one or two 'brain teaser'/problem solving questions. Second set were more geared towards fit and focused on goals, interests, and chances for me to ask questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Two people are each stuck on their own island, connected by a ferryman with a lockable box. Each person has their own lock and key, but can't send the key along with the box. One person wants to send the other a diamond, but it must be placed into the box and locked or it will be stolen by the ferryman. How do you send the diamond without the ferryman stealing it?   6 Answers

    Negotiation

    I didn't need to negotiate much as I wasn't looking for a salary bump. I was more interested in the change of responsibility. It helps to hone in on your desired salary and position up front, because there's not much else that can be negotiated. You will want to agree to everything because once it hits Larry Ellison's office and gets his approval there's not much else that can be changed.
