Systems Support Engineer Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Oracle.

Interview Details A very thorough process. You education history Is checked as in everyone is called to confirm resume details. There are a number of interviews to predict how you will fit into the team. The most enjoyable are the technical questions when you get to that stage. I would advise that being truthful and be yourself is the best advise ever.

Interview Question – It is not like the ridiculous questions you get from Google. But specific questions related to the role you are applying for.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Lopsided, here is the offer very little room for movement.

Applications Sales Representative Interview

Anonymous Employee
Burlington, MA (US)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in February 2013.

Interview Details Recruiter Calls. If you pass that, you meet with 2 sets of managers then one Sales Director. Just be yourself and prove you can have a conversation. If you have the sales background; that is half the battle.

Interview Question – Just know your business inside and out. Difficult scenarios you have had in the past. Do not act like you know it all. They do not want that.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They were hiring a ton of people and I had little to no say. If they are filling in a few spots and want you they will pay you more.
