Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Oracle (Bangalore) in April 2015.

Interview

Process took two weeks. One online test after clearing that Oracle asked me to come down to their office for F2F round.
 The programming round was very tough and the expectations were hard to meet in the provided time.

Interview Questions

  • I was asked to program an application that takes cares of the wages of employees for their extra working hours. provided that you have to follow the OOPS and implement design pattern and write test cases and all the test cases should be passed. The code should be reusable for future and should use junit for test cases. Once done, code was reviewed by their developers and asked queries regarding the approach, design pattern, ER diagram of the code etc. Overall it was a good experience.   Answer Question

    Interview

    3-4 rounds depending on how you perform in first round. More technical rounds if they are unsure. Direct manager round if they find you good technically. They will try to confuse you. In case you are conceptually good, they will find out. Interviewer will lay traps for you. Beware of those things. They are highly knowledgeable and as soon as you say something that is not right, they will try to make situation where your own concepts start conflicting with each other. Beware of such traps.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Oracle (Bangalore).

    Interview

    Hiring process is very cumbersome. It takes 1 month to complete all the interview rounds. Interview rounds are also exhaustive. Around 4-5 rounds are conducted. The more you ask the more are the chances that the offer will not come even after doing excellent in the interview. Referrals are encouraged and internal movement is also consider. During the offer wait period, the key is to remain connected with the manager if he/she responded positively to your interview.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There is no negotiation phase since the offer comes after long time but at start.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7+ weeksinterviewed at Oracle (Bangalore) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by HR. During the initial discussion they gathered basic information about my profile and also briefed me about the position and what actually they are looking for. After a few days first round of technical interview conducted. Basic to intermediate level questions asked about Oracle db architecture. All facets of Oracle products were touched. This was further followed by second level technical interview. This was quite intense and lengthy. Both rounds were telephonic and duration was more than an hour for each. Second round was to check depth of knowledge with few issue specific questions. Before third round few documents collected by HR. Third and fourth round taken through video conference. Third round was with hiring manager. In this round technical and behavioral qualities were assessed. Salary negotiation also took place in this round. Next was fourth round with the Sr.Director. Mostly behavioral questions. Verbal offer made after few hours. After 3 weeks soft copy of the offer letter released.

    Interview Questions

    • Be sure to know as much as possible for all technical terms used in resume or during interview.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiations largely depend on last drawn salary. Asking salary should be justified rationally.
