I have been working at Glassdoor full-time (Less than a year)
I joined Glassdoor 2 months ago and have no regrets at all.
My new colleagues have all been very welcoming, supportive and clearly know what they are doing.
Not just from my own office, but this includes people throughout the organisation - from the ones I met during the onboarding process in Chicago to my colleagues based in Dublin.
Being in sales, the product itself is fundamental to the pride I feel at work and whether I see a career in an organisation or not. Since joining Glassdoor I have met multiple clients from a variety of industries and the huge majority have been extremely happy with the product and service delivered.
For me, this is so important and fills me with confidence in the decision I made to leave my last company and join Glassdoor.
I've personally experienced working for a company during its hyper-growth stage and loved it. My job now allows me to be part of a similar journey at Glassdoor, which is so exciting.
It is truly a great time to be at Glassdoor!
Obviously, when a company is growing at such a pace then you will have growing pains and certain challenges. But to be honest that is what excited me about joining Glassdoor and what keeps my job interesting.
Each day brings new challenges, but if your head is in the right place and you are prepared to work hard, then the satisfaction of genuinely contributing to the success of a business outweighs any negatives.
Advice to Management
As we grow across all departments, hiring the right people at the right time is crucial to our success. Let's make sure our employees aren't too stretched before we start the hiring cycle. Being proactive rather than reactive.
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (London, England (UK)) in November 2014.
The hiring process was done over 4 stages, which took a little under a month.
1) Phone call with the recruitment team, who were extremely swift and accommodating.
2) Phone call with the head of the team the position was for
3) Skype meeting with the SVP of the department
4) Meet the whole London based team for 30 minute sessions with each.
The interviews were oriented towards past experiences and future aspirations, they look to find overachievers who are not afraid to get their hands dirty and go the extra mile, being a rather small team in London, one's work may extend beyond the terms of your contract.
Someone from the hiring team contacted me the same day as I put forth my candidacy and was very impressed by the mix between friendly conversation and professionalism throughout the entire process.
I highly encourage people matching these criteria to apply.
Glassdoor are very accommodating, there is room to discuss your initial offer. They are flexible if you are as well.
