    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    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.

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Mill Valley, CA (US)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    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.

    Business Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor in June 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone screening with HR, then three phone interviews with people on the team, then a home modeling assignment for which I put together a PPT, then in-person final round, during which I met 6 people back-to-back.

    My biggest critique is that the entire team is made up of white males from HBS or Stanford GSB. No diverse perspectives. There was no way they could consider a minority female from a lower MBA for their team. The hiring manager actually asked what my rank was in each of my prior role: which means status and rank is everything to him.
