Software Engineer Interview

Negative Experience

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Oracle.

Interview

I met them through my school career fair. I was offered an interview right away and scheduled it a couple of months out. My class schedule had changed though so I had to reschedule and my recruiter just never got back to me about a new date even though they agreed to reschedule and said it wasn't a problem (I gave several week's notice). Super unprofessional.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Oracle in April 2017.

    Interview

    This review is about the Oracle Bare Metal Group. Interviewer was very rude with unprofessional behavior over phone. I was asked one question on graphs for the initial phone screen. Interviewer stopped me in the middle and behaved very rudely because i was taking time to analyze my logic.
    Interviewer bragged about top engineers from facebook, google etc in his team and if he hires me then i will end up struggling. I was rejected over phone itself.

    I don't recommend people to interview with bare metal group because of their unprofessional attitude.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview

    Techical - specific to job requirements. Questions ask are highly technical and gauges your skills if you are appropriate for the job. Also I was laid off from the same company but they called me to place me into a similar position which is weird.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oracle (Redwood Shores, CA) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I was directly called onsite because of a referral. I had 3 interviews with 3 different teams, in 2 different campuses. Overall the questions weren't too hard but I could have prepared more. In the morning I had a meeting with HR. Typically I'm guessing you would have a phone interview but I bypassed this because I was referred.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (New York, NY) in October 2016.

    Interview

    The process was highly disorganized. The recruiter gave me a set of teams to select from and initially told me that there would be an onsite interview. Later, she set up phone interviews with the teams. One of the interviewer asked for a programming interview but my recruiter didn't arrange for that despite my repeated emails. I was then dropped from consideration on that team which I wasn't told about until I had to send them repeated emails. Finally they asked me to fly to headquarters and interview two teams. On site, one of the team interview was pretty easy. It was with the manager and he wanted to know more about me and almost offered me a job on that team. The second team had about five rounds of interviews all technical. After the interview they asked me to send team preferences and within 2 hours, they sent me a reject. I asked them what happened to the "almost offer" and was met with radio silence! There was no feedback and nothing after a harrowing process they put me through.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview

    Applied through career fair, had a phone screen with some technical questions. It wasn't too difficult, just what you would expect from a technical phone screen. Oracle was very nice and on top of things, but I do feel like the entire interview process was rushed.
