    Interview Details

    the hiring process takes a very long time..up to 3 months. I found in the meantime another opportunity and I took it. It depends on the urgency they have to fill the position and of course the approvals from US.

    Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Oracle in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

Emphasis placed on communication and attitude, collective interview with 2 individual exercises and one exercise (survival scenario) engaging all interview participants. This was followed by a face-to-face interview with the project manager. Overall, a relaxed but professional interview.

    Applications Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Oracle in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was initially contacted by a recruiter via linkedin and we scheduled an initial call shortly after. I was expecting it to just be an introductory call but it turned out to be a 30-45 minute telephone interview (so be prepared!). Following this we scheduled an initial (quite informal) interview with my hiring manager and one other, which was followed by a "panel interview" consisting of my hiring manager and 2 other senior managers (including his direct manager). In the panel interview I had to present my initial territory and business plan for a hypothetical territory that would be assigned to me. I had to research Oracle's products (that I knew I would be responsible for selling) our competition, partners etc.

    Interview Questions
    • I think the most difficult part of the panel interview was actually the vagueness of the brief - I had to go into a lot of detail without a large amount of guidance, and with little prior knowledge of the target industry, which I found challenging   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I would have been able to negotiate but I was quite shocked by the offer that they made me, which more than doubled my basic salary (from £18k to £37k). I accepted immediately. In hindsight I think I had some significant negotiation room and since joining I was quickly able to negotiate a pay increase of £5,250 p.a.

    Oracle basic salary is typically arranged in 'bands' of an unspecified amount, based on your 'career level' so if you can work out which 'band' you are in you should be able to estimate more or less how much you can ask for.

    Interview Details

    Two interviews. First one was a general interview talking about background interests, and reasons for application etc. Second was done by the department, asking more technical and specific questions. Both very pleasant interviews.

    Interview Questions
    • All questions seemed to be straight forward, but a basic understanding of software/hardware systems and Oracle's position in the industry would be relevant information, as any other interview.   Answer Question
