    I came in about 3 times total. Each time I met with my prospective boss and people who were part of my group. My final presentation to the entire team was pretty fun. I applied in November and got an offer in mid-January.

    Operations Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Sausalito, CA (US)) in February 2012.

    Interview

    While the interview objective was for the purposes of vetting, it was a rapid fire screening with no opportunity to ask questions or participate interactively. The interview was conducted by the CEO who (while pleasant enough), was rushed and impersonal. He would have been better served by having an HR generalist read through questions and capture responses. Disappointing as this type of phone screen doesn't provide for enough input or feedback to reveal skills, cite characteristics and core competencies that would prompt further exploration . . . wasn't a fair assessment.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Glassdoor (San Francisco, CA (US)) in January 2018.

    The questions were typical interview questions. About my motivation, my greatest achievements in the past, etc.
    The interviewer was engaging and really paid attention through active listening.
    Finally I was not hired, since I was considered to be overqualified.

    Interview

    Glassdoor had both a phone interview and technical questions, It helps to network with alumni from your school beforehand so you have something to talk about during the interview. Interview was fairly simple and everyone was enthusiastic about their jobs.

    I applied online and a recruiter contacted me 10 days later. I did the first interview by phone with her and got a positive response after 19 days, when we scheduled an in office interview. In the office I have been interviewed by two people from the team I will work with. Both have been very polite and showed me the whole office and introduced me to some people.

    Internal Communications Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (San Francisco, CA (US)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    My experience was extremely poor, but it is hopefully just because of the in-house recruiter I worked with.

    She asked for my availability for a phone screen on a Friday. I submitted right away. I heard back from her at 10:30pm on the following Monday, scheduling me for a time on Wednesday. I emailed her right away to let her know that a professional conflict had come up and tried to reschedule. I then emailed her the day of - and she never responded to either email, but called me during my meeting.

    I had to miss the call, but she left her number, so I called her back and left a message, then emailed her three different times. She finally responded on Monday to schedule for a time on that Wednesday.

    We chatted about my experience, my skills, and my interest in the role, as well as a deeper dive into all that the role entailed. She told me she'd have to wait to discuss my candidacy with the hiring manager the following Monday as the hiring manager was in a sales training until then. She said she'd let me know next steps following that discussion.

    I emailed her on that Tuesday, and I have never heard from her.

    My main maddening frustration with this is that this is Glassdoor, the company with a foundation of reviews - not just on culture, but on the interview process as well. As a company that situates itself within the employer-employee-job seeker dynamic, this review of a recruiter as a representative of what you should know about Glassdoor is something they literally ask for.

    I would generally love to see the interview process become more considerate of the job seeker, active or passive, but based on my experience with Glassdoor, it's not happening here.

    The interview process was organized very well and the whole Glassdoor approach was highly professional. I thoroughly enjoyed talking to many people. Group lunch was great. Interviewers clearly explained their roles and what my role is going to be. This is easily the best interview process I ever had in my career.
