    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Los Angeles, CA (US)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    The process wasn't hard. Phone interview followed by in person interviews. They didn't seem to try to find any faults with me. As long as I was a decent candidate they were going to want me. Interview questions weren't difficult. Simple behavioral interview. The process took about 4 weeks though. Then I got my offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview

    Three interviews (2 phone, 1 in-person): The first two are easy questions with one HR person and a BDR based in Boston. The final interview was on-campus with a VP of sales. The VP was perhaps the most cynical person I've ever met. I walked out of that interview disillusioned about the company culture and the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Austin, TX (US)) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Reached out to a recruiter via LinkedIn, they requested my resume via email and responded with a link to a pretty standard online application.

    Filled out the application and was contacted by the recruiter for a brief (20 min) screening call. Mostly behavioral questions- Why sales? Why Oracle? What are you most proud of? What motivates you? Low pressure and very conversational, my guess is that they're just making sure you're qualified enough for a real interview.

    Scheduled an interview in their Austin office at the end of the initial call with the recruiter, was asked to bring two copies of my resume for two separate interviews that day.

    Showed up and checked in on the day of the interview, had my first interview with an application sales manager over the phone (this is when they were in the middle of transitioning offices and this particular manager had already moved) and the second interview with a tech sales manager in person.

    The interviews were very conversational- they want to see that you are competent, confident, and could succeed at sales (good communication and relational skills) and most of all are looking for people who have the right attitude and want to grow.

    The BDR role is not glorious and they don't pretend that it is, and want to know that you are okay with putting in the work to be part of the team - important not to be entitled, to do some basic research on Oracle and what they do, and where they're going in the future with the major shift towards cloud services.

    I received an offer 3 business days later and accepted.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Oracle (Boston, MA (US)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed for the position in Boston Massachusetts. It was a great experience. There were three total rounds. The first began with a phone screening and then had a phone call with the BDR team lead. The last was a super day in their Boston office. Everyone was very helpful and positive about their experience. They provide competitive salary and great growth oppurtunity.
