I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Glassdoor in February 2014.
Interview Details – Applied online and contacted to schedule phone interview within 2 days. Good phone interview and asked to come into office to meet with 3 sales managers. Prior to coming in for the interview, given online assessment to complete. Very basic in-person interview, but seemed a little rushed. In-person interview went well so they scheduled an over the phone pitch of Glassdoor to pretend executives. I wasn't sure of their specific sales process so tried my best to educate myself with details from the website and present. After the pitch, I never heard back via phone or email. I attempted reaching out but no one responded back. I did not find this very professional, which left a bad overall impression of the company.
Interview Question – During pitch, asked specific contract length questions. View Answer

Interview Details – The entire interview process was pretty quick at Glassdoor. it took about one week for a phone screen after I submitted my resume, The questions were pretty standard for the phone screen, data structure, a short piece of code, and some JAVA specific questions. After the phone screen, it took about another week for my onsite interview. The format of the onsite interview was similar to most software company where you are interviewed by 5 people lasting 45 min to 1 hr each. Almost all the questions were coding related and about half of them were related to the position I was applying for. I was able to stay quite relax during interviews since I only had to do a little bit of white board and actually get to use a computer for several questions. Compare to the Amazon interview I went on where I was on the white board the whole time, this was a much better experience. I received an offer less than a week after my onsite.
Interview Question – White board a functions that finds fibonacci(n) recursively in O(n) and another one iteratively in O(n) Answer Question

Interview Details – I applied online and the process took less than a week.
I was contacted by the director of data analytics within a few days via email to schedule a 30 minutes phone interview. I replied saying that my availability was flexible.
I received a phone call from a senior data scientist a couple days later. The person first screened over my resume and then asking me how much do I know about python and pig. And then asking me if I was going to make an improvement about glassdoor's feature. What would it be? I was a little bit unprepared for this question, but I think my answer to this was okay, since the person really liked my answer and said "I have never heard such a recommendation."
Next, the person want me to do an statistical challenge. The question was: Given the data set, "title", "salary", "location", "employer". How would you predict a salary for a title from an employer at a specific location, whether we have already have the the data or not. That means there can be no existing data available for such an employer or such a title. (in 1-2 paragraphs)
I received an rejection email after submitting my solution via email.
Overall experience was okay, but it would been nice if:
1) They could offer some feedbacks for my challenges. Since glassdoor is a feedback based company.
2) They could schedule a time for the interview instead of just calling. (like a confirmation email or something at a specific time)
Another thing is, their rejection email was unprofessional. I applied for the data analyst position, but in the rejection email, the title says "Senior Data Scientist/ Senior Statistician". Oh well, I guess I couldn't really blame them for not changing the title.
Interview Question – The statistical challenge about predicting salaries. Answer Question

I interviewed at Glassdoor in February 2014.
Interview Details – I applied online through their website which was followed with an email to schedule a phone interview. They want an idea of who you are and your background experience. After the phone interview, I was asked to come to their office for an onsite interview. The interview consisted general questions as well as a test which was done on the computer. The test consisted of general troubleshooting which is fairly easy if you know the ins and outs of a working computer
Interview Question – I didn't think any of the questions were too difficult to answer. I guess I just wasn't the person they were looking for even though I felt I was qualified for the position Answer Question

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Glassdoor in July 2013.
Interview Details – Overall process took about a month. First, an email shortly after submitting my resume. We set up a phone interview to take place within a few days. This was a basic "getting to know you/ explain your resume" interview. Then, another phone interview that seemed a little less detailed. In this interview, more information about the job opportunities (there were two available for the location) was shared. Finally, my first face-to-face interview. This actually took place at a Panera, since the new office building wasn't ready yet. I was kind of thrown back, because I expected to meet with one person, but instead met two: A manager as well as the person I spoke with on the second phone interview. However, it was pretty laid back and more information was shared about Glassdoor and how they ended there than about me (They pretty much knew me by then anyway). They told me I'd have to speak to one more person in the HQ office, and to please be patient. I received an email to set up a phone call. Glassdoor is great, because I was able to look up exactly who I would be interviewing with on the site. I was intimidated, but the interview was really laid back and fast. In fact, it felt almost more like a short confirmation for California than an interview. I received my offer within 48 hours.
Interview Question – I spent so much time preparing for the oddball questions (that I saw on this site), that I failed to adequately prepare for all the "normal" ones. And I did not have ONE oddball question. While I was a bit surprised, it helped take the pressure off a bit. I was asked a lot about attention to detail, working remotely at times, and of course, my strengths and weaknesses. Normal things. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I knew what the pay rate would be-- it was explained to me in the third interview, and I already saw the information on this site. I was so excited to be a part of the team, the wage didn't matter that much!
I applied through other source and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Glassdoor in October 2013.
Interview Details – They found me and contacted me on LinkedIn, and set me up for a phone screen with a VP. I had two phone screens with the same person, and a 5-hour in-person interview, spending an hour each with five different people. Soon after that, I got an offer. It took a just few days to work out the details. It moved faster than I'm used to.
Interview Question – Here's a specific area of the site where we're currently having a specific problem. How would you overhaul this area of the site to make it better? View Answer
Negotiation Details – Glassdoor's products are built around transparency and openness with compensation and benefits information, information that is traditionally taboo and secretive. So, it was no surprise that they were unusually transparent and forthcoming about the compensation details (e.g., they told me the mean and median percentages for employee bonuses in the prior year).

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Glassdoor.
Interview Details – It's a very fast process. I applied online and received an interview offer within a handful of days. I interviewed directly with the hiring manager then came into the office for in person interviews. Most of the people I interviewed with were really terrific. Some of the higher ups have strong personalities (for ex. extremely blunt) and you have to be flexible to adjust to it, which I wasn't very good at.
