    Graduate Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Reading, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Oracle (Reading, England) in September 2019.

    Interview

    If you are ethnic i would suggest staying far away from this recruitment process. After my experience with both Oracle and Pareto, i was left disgusted by the actions taken by both parties. During an exercise you are asked to chose any famous dead/alive influential person you would want to dine with, one individual chose to pick the man who colonised Australia and his reasoning was specifically because he colonised the country, to my surprise both the members of Oracle and Pareto ignored his comment and instead laughed on his behalf, and yes he made it through the last round whilst the majority of the people who were left at the first round were 80% ethnic. I have never witnessed something so foul and am disgusted by the actions of both companies.

    Most importantly you will feel the sense of achievement that you are delivering real value to the business. You are not employed to spend a year shadowing others and looking over shoulders. You are employed to learn and deliver results.

    Senior SRE/DevOps Engineer - UK Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Oracle (Reading, England) in July 2018.

    Interview

    Was contacted directly by internal recruitment manager Early June, whom did a fantastic job of discussing the role and checking suitability Mid July, overall this stage was very informative, well managed and the subsequent arrangement of interview was very prompt. In fact I was pushed to interview in order to catch some of the US guys (within that week). Turns out they were not interested in attending the interview in the end, Seemed like the position had already been filled and the interviewers job was to put off any candidates.
    Complete waste of time. Withdrew application immediately and it took them months to give any feedback which was addressed to some other candidate anyway.
