    Graduate Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Oracle.

    Interview

    I was contacted via linkedin and asked if I would like to interview with oracle for a graduate position, I accepted the offer and had 1 phone interview with the company.

    Firstly they used a phonecall instead of something like skype/zoom etc. and called from the UK (I was in Ireland), meaning I could barely hear the interviewer because of the bad phone line which could have easily been avoided.

    Secondly, the interviewer was a recruiter and asked lots of technical questions that seemed to be more "tech buzzwords" than actual questions. For example, I said I had worked creating API endpoints in my previous work and was asked "what companies endpoints did I work with", to which I kind of just had to reiterate that I was the one making the endpoints for the company I was working for.

    The recruiter didn't seem to have read my CV, meaning a lot of questions were very basic things that at first I thought were being clarified but instead seemed to be the first time that they had heard the answer. It was pointed out that this wasn't a "graduate program" but instead I would keep the title graduate for an indefinite period which sounds like an awful system.

    They did not come back to me after this screening and I would recommend other graduates avoid them.
