Inside Sales Representative Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)

Graduate Trainee Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Oracle in April 2012.
Interview Details Mostly successful - the phone screening is good, group assignments are a bit of a joke but pretty straight forward and the first interview was fine. The 2nd interview was shocking - there were a panel of 3 people (1) had already interviewed me the other 2 were bombarding me ripping apart my resume verbally and attacking me. It actually felt more like I was being tortured than an actual interview. They didn't ask one sales question or even try to measure my sales potential at all.

Systems Support Engineer Interview (Positive Experience)
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Oracle.

Interviewed at Oracle
Interview Details I applied for the position, participated in a phone interview, and was hired months later. It is very important to have a college degree to work for Oracle. You also must be patient because sometimes the hiring process is slow.
Interview Question – Be prepared to describe how you interacted with any of their products before, especially for the work area you are applying in. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I negotiated over the phone with an HR representative. He did not reveal the salary range, but I guessed (with Glassdoor's help) and he said I was pretty much spot on. I opted for the middle of the salary range. If I had known that Oracle was slow to promote, I would have negotiated for a higher salary.
