    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oracle (Reading, England (UK)) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Handled by Pareto, group interview featuring small introduction in front of other applicants and members of oracle management, followed by a few group tasks and then a 3 minute presentation about why you wish to work for oracle & want a career in technical consulting. Successful applicants were then required to do an interview, discussing usual topics.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Oracle (Reading, England (UK)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Extremely regimental, I felt that they were picking me apart from the moment I walked in. 40 candidates at one assessment centre, this is far too many! Good group activities. Half of candidates were sent home after presentations. Current employees were not particularly approachable and were not welcoming. Management who interviewed me were even worse, straight faced, blunt and zero encouragement. No sense of humour. I knew immediately this was not a company I would like to work for. Companies preach so much about their values, yet this seemed a company that does not seem to practice them. Also, they said they would contact you with feedback by telephone whether you were successful or not in the job. I never received this phone call.

    Account Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Oracle (London, England (UK)) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I was approached by an internal Oracle recruiter. At the time I was working for a competitor but advised I was looking to move to a new region and would be interested if an opportunity presented itself. After many months of flirting with the idea, I took the plunge and organized my first phone interview, which led onto my first F2F, which was followed by another F2F with two members of the team I would be joining. After this, it took approximately over a week to be informed I wasn't being considered. I was approached again by Oracle for another opportunity in another region, and this process was the longest and most disjointed process ever. After several phones call's, skype interviews and a number of emails back and forth, I was informed 3 months into the process they were hiring internally.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (London, England (UK)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The process was composed of three interviews, plus one initial screening by their HR or the headhunting company. The first interviews were held with the potential peers on the company and the final one with a senior director.
    The initial rounds were quite smooth and the approach from the interviewer was nice and collaborative, but the final round became an kind of audit with interviewer showing distrust on the carreer desription, roles and actual responsibilities I had.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (London, England (UK)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Telephone interview followed by an assessment centre. Telephone interview consisted

    Assessment centre did not have a one-on-one interview but consisted of group work, individual test, individual proof reading and an individual presentation already prepared before the interview. We were also ask to create an advert and send it to Oracle before the assessment centre however this was not discussed during the assessment centre and we received no feed back on it (essentially this task felt like a big waste of time).

    Interview Questions

    • Telephone interview:
      - Why would you like to work for Oracle?
      - Why have you applied for the specific role?
      - What is your biggest weakness?

    Director Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oracle (London, England (UK)) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I submitted an application via a Linkedin job posting, was in the top 10% that matched the skills compared to the rest of the lot. The recruiter contacted me and asked for a 15 minute chat, called 7 minutes late. While I was pretty curious to see what he will be able to squeeze into an 8 minute discussion, he said I was a very good match, the role reports to a US VP and he asked a single question, my current salary. When I politely declined to tell him and provided him with my salary expectation instead, he insisted to find out. As he couldn't, he tried to position the situation as if I was 'unable' to provide him with my remuneration details. I clarified as it was not an inability, but rather a 'preference'. He suggested there will be a face to face interview that I will receive the details for, but never received any further communication.
