For all those to recommend reading about SET_ATTRIBUTE, it doesn't help:

  1 begin
  2 dbms_scheduler.set_attribute(
  3 name=>'GATHER_STATS_JOB',
  4 attribute=>'repeat_interval',
  5 value=>'freq=minutely;bymonthday=1');   6* end;
SQL> /
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-27488: unable to set REPEAT_INTERVAL because SCHEDULE_NAME, EVENT_SPEC was/were already set

ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_ISCHED", line 2876
ORA-06512: at "SYS.DBMS_SCHEDULER", line 1847
ORA-06512: at line 2

In other words, it is already set, it can't be changed without dropping and re-creating it.
