I was interviewed on-campus for APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT ENGINEER role at Oracle
Interview Process
Resume Shortlist Test Puzzle Interview HR Interview
Round 1

Resume Shortlist

Interview Experience
I had a standard resume for this company as per our institute placement cell norms.I usually changed my “Areas of Interest” as per the company profile. For Oracle I mentioned subjects that dealt with coding and also about my other projects which had even little bit of programming.
Round 2

Test

Interview Experience
The test comprised of different sections. These were related to general aptitude, data interpretation, programming, logical reasoning and character recognition (e.g. you had to find the matching string in a set of given strings). A large number of questions were from topics like data structure and a few were from programming. The paper was difficult – particularly the questions on data structure were very difficult. In data structure questions were mainly asked from trees and stacks. There were different comprehensions that were dedicated to the use of AVL Tree.
Also there were few simple theoretical questions on database management related to primary key, foreign key etc. For the logical questions one can go through the guild website of Oracle, where the complete set of questions asked in the paper can be found. The aptitude test was not difficult but the time allotted was the main factor that affected the performance.
Round 3

Puzzle Interview

Interview Experience
The first interview was aimed at testing your logical reasoning ability and programming knowledge. The questions here were puzzle based and focused on testing the logical ability of the candidate. An example is if there are 100 beam balls, all of the same weight except one, then what are the minimum number of weighing attempts required to find the odd ball with the help of a beam balance. Then they moved on to asking some very basic technical questions like how to create stacks and queues using any programming language. The logical questions and puzzles asked in this round were quite common ones. One would need to look around on the internet – finding these puzzles etc. is tough but they are available for free.
Interview Tips
Oracle gives a lot of weightage to the projects and the internships. If you had one of these related to some coding stuff then you have an added advantage. Also knowledge of data structures is a must.
Round 4

HR Interview

Interview Experience
In the second phase of interview a mixed bag of HR questions (Human Resource) and technical questions were asked. The HR questions included questions like ‘Why do you want to join Oracle’ and ‘What are your future plans?’  The interview process was very smooth and they were not looking for essentially only coding. They were looking for people with good logical thinking and could apply their brains if required for learning and writing codes and programs.The next round was also a technical cum HR interview. They wanted check my willingness to join the company and the fact that whether I will stick with the company or not. The technical questions were simple and they just wanted to check the facts that I had mentioned in my resume.
Interview Tips
A candidate vying to get recruited in the company should have substantial knowledge on data structures.

    Motivation for applying
    Oracle is a renowned company. It has been coming for placements in our campus for many years. This time it came with 5 different profiles. The information regarding all these could be best found by attending the Pre Placement Talk.Walk in interview was conducted for students who had studied the course of Data Structures. They had also conducted a written test but no weightage was given to it for those students who had attended the course on data structures.

    Was asked about my background in detail and stressed again and again on 'Why IT?'. Then he asked me to prepare a summary on the merits and demerits of various Employee Data Management techniques for an organisation. For the end of the interview you should have a question which you would ask to the interviewer.
    General Tips
    Don't try to over emphasize the correctness of your logic if the interviewer finds a glitch. It irritates him. Be interactive in your HR round. In our case it was the VP of Oracle India who took the final round. So I asked him about his experience in the company. He was very happy to share it with me. But asses your interviewer before you put forth these queries cause your interviewer might not be as jolly as mine was.

    2. There are two glasses, one containing water and the other with milk. Suppose you take some water from the water glass with one cup and
    pour it into milk, and then you again take milk from the milk glass with same cup and pour it in water, then what is their purity?
    3. There are 4 persons A, B, C and D. The time taken to cross bridge from one end to another end for each of them is 1,2,5,10 respectively. The bridge is very old so two people at a time can cross the bridge. and there is no light on the
    bridge. The 4 people have only one torch. There is no light on the bridge. So torch is compulsory for every one. How many times will it take for those people to cross the bridge?

    1. Write a program for Sudoku puzzle
    2. Write program to find reverse of number
    3. Separate string and its length. i.e input string contains string and it's length at end. String may have digits and alphabets.
    For xample:
    I/P: praveenkumar14
    here total string length is:14 i
    Its length is appended ,so you have to separate praveenkumar and 14
    Interview Tips
    Don't tell the answers immediately if you know them. Take time to answer and meanwhile pretend to think.
    Mainly concentrate on puzzles and aptitude.
    Do not be nervous in the interview. Be patient as the interview may last up to 4 hours.

      Round 1

      Resume Shortlist

      Interview Experience
      I had a standard resume for this company as per our Institute placement cell norms. I had mentioned all my achievements, academic and extracurricular, in my resume.I had the same resume for every company. I only used to change the subjects mentioned as my area of interest to make sure that they are in line with the job profile being offered by the company.
      Round 2

      Test

      Interview Experience
      The first round of selection process was an online test. The test comprised of technical questions as well as general aptitude/logical based questions.It is important to prepare well for technical as well as general aptitude based tests. I practiced questions from CAT preparation material/books to prepare for aptitude based tests.
      Round 3

      HR Interview

      Interview Experience
      The second round of the selection process was an interview round. Almost every student had at least 2 interviews.
      In the first interview, most of the questions asked were typical HR type questions. They mainly wanted to gauge the candidate’s interest in working for their company. A few technical questions were asked as well. One of the questions asked was about Bubble Sorting Algorithm. Some 30 students appeared for this interview (for Application Development Profile) and 20 students were shortlisted for the next interview.
      In the second interview, I was asked some simple mathematical problems and some programming based questions. The questions asked were:
      There is a two digit number. The sum of its digit is known. The sum of the number itself and the number obtained by reversing the digits is also known. How would you find the number? How would you implement these equations in a program?There is a string with opening and closing brackets. How would you find (using a program) if in the string there is a closing bracket for every opening bracket?In the third interview, again some programming based questions were asked. As the interviewer himself graduated from the Electrical Engineering Department of IIT Roorkee, he also asked a few questions from Electrical Engineering. Some of the questions asked were:How would you find the number of words in a given paragraph?
      How many registers are there in a microprocessor (say 8085)? How is the information stored during a program run?Questions related to Control Systems.Questions related to Magnetic Levitation.
      Interview Tips
      If you are thorough with only C++ then mention only C++ as the language known in your resume. Do not mention things/languages/courses you do not know or have not studied. Also Electrical Engineering students have more chance of getting selected in the application development profile as compared to other profiles offered by Oracle (like Systems, Communications etc.) if they have studied the relevant courses or have the slightest of interest or knowledge about programming.

        For oracle, a lot of research into company needs to be made. Operating systems and databases require more amount of preparation and priority in Oracle.<br /> For data structures, online materials are excellent and in case of OOPS concepts, stronghold in either C++ or java programming language is necessary.
        General Tips
        Be extremely well prepared for any company. Research about the company's profile extensively before the company's interview. HR panel always looks for candidates who are well aware of the company in order to measure the candidate's interest. Data structures are absolutely necessary for any company. Improve coding skills through frequent participation in competitive programming arena such as codeForces, codeChef, HackerEarth etc. "Software development job profile was offered to me.<br />
        Unnecessary and irrelevant questions are to be avoided. We should raise questions only if we have some genuine questions. However any question related to job profile or location preference could be raised. "<br />

        Please do attend their PPTs as they can be very helpful in the interviews. Sometimes rejections happen only becuse we havn't attended their PPT. Try to cover atleast the basics of each topic that i told above. Be thorough with your concepts and speak confidently over there. Be strong in DSA, OS and one programming language especially.<br />
        Also prepare well for HR round as they can be really screwing as well. Cover topics like strengths/weaknesses, why you want to join their company, higher education(say no always) and reason for not going for it, why should they hire you, etc.<br />
        Do not panic, just always stay calm. Also listen carefully and with whole concentration to what they say. Always be patient, you will get a good company. <br />

        The tech rounds focused mostly on coding. You can choose any programming language that you are comfortable with. They are not insistent that you know Java. I chose C++. The interviewers mainly look at how you approach the questions (the way you solve the question - if its the most efficient/fastest solution to the problem). They will also ask quite a lot of puzzles (the ones you can prepare from Heard on the street, 400 puzzles etc.) and a few CAT quant qns.

        Interview Tips
        basic qns that you will prepare for any company. Be sure to attend the PPT; the HR will surely ask you a few qns from it. Also know a bit about the company and the profile you are sitting for.

        Skills Tested

          General Tips
          The test is the only criteria for getting shortlisted to the interview round. There are certain Oracle profiles that are only open for CS and one which has a CG cutoff of 8.5. But for the App Dev profile there was no CG cutoff. your performance in the test is most important,because they generally do not entertain walkins during interview. Resume is not that important. Only HR team will have a look at it. If you have any coding experience (from any projects) or Java certification then its an added bonus. But its not mandatory.<br />
          1st year- concentrate on CGPA<br />
          2nd year - find out what you want(core or noncore). Do internships in starts ups or finance or consult companies if aiming for non-core. PORs are important<br />
          3rd year- internships.<br />
          4th year- start placement preparation very early. <br />
          Work well on your project if you want to go for core.
