Oracle OCI Offer Letter taking a long time? BiII Gates
Nov 12 20 Comments

2 weeks ago, I accepted a verbal offer from OCI. The recruiter said that it would take 2 weeks to get the letter, but it still doesn't seem close to being done. I mentioned to them that I saw posts online (Blind) saying they waited months for their letter, they said it must've been visa issues and that OCI is given higher priority.

Thoughts? I really need to get this offer letter soon for personal reasons.

    When OCI makes a verbal offer it has to get approved exec's from Oracle. It takes a long time. I'm not sure if you can speed it up.

      That's annoying. How long did it take for you personally?

      After onsite, the next day they said they were going to make offer.

      4 weeks after that they made verbal offer. I declined. I dont know how much longer it would have taken, but I think it was fully approved at that point so would have been quickly after that.

    What happens from verbal onwards:
    1..recruiter works to get formal applicationon going. Applicant side work

    2. When ready HM crated a formal offer. It may take 1-3 days based on what else is on his plate.
    3 once offer is entered it goes through approval chain. Sometime it’s returned by HR for correction and process restarts.

    So it can 1-4 weeks. I had offers approved I. 3 days once I entered in system to 3 weeks.

      Definitely talk to your hiring manager. Maybe they are on vacation. Took my process around 4 business days once entered in the system

    Sometimes it takes months even without visa issues. As I recall, it took me about a month to go from verbal to letter.

    Keep Calm and Leetcode On.

    I am in the same boat and waiting for 4 weeks post verbal offer. Unless you have any other opportunities I suggest you shut down your mind and LC.
