    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7+ weeks - interviewed at Oracle in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    One Technical Screening Round - [On Phone]
    Followed by series of face-face technical rounds regarding technology, design approach, algorithm writing, architecture and few aptitude questions. There is no separate HR or negotiation round. This was for oracle ADF team, wherein, questions were mostly based on algorithm, complexity and then inclined towards J2EE frameworks (mostly JSF). The interviewers were very good and I enjoyed the whole process. They released the offer letter after 40 days.

    Interview Questions
    • When you are developing a web portal for which contain sensitive information, how should you maintain the session?   View Answer
    • For my previous question I gave the answer to be a combination of session object at the server side and using encoding for securing sensitive information. Then, interviewer asked that, Session object also uses cookies/url re-writing for maintaining the state based on the client browser settings, then how is it secure? as you said that cookies are at client side and URL re-writing has its own problems like following any link to outside application and then coming back to the application which will not have the encoded user state in the URL?   Answer Question
