Negotiation Details – No negotiation
I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Glassdoor in September 2012.
Interview Details – I'm not based in SF so the first interview was over the phone. I happened to be in town two weeks later so I was invited back for a face to face interview. Three interviews was arranged where I got a chance to meet some of the people I would be working with if offered the role. It was great to meet people on my team straight away as it gave me an idea of the culture. This 2nd round of interviews was also successful and as I was leaving town just two days later, the 3rd and final round of interviews was arranged for the following day. It was great that they where flexible enough to work around my schedule and could progress my interviews so quickly.
Negotiation Details – There wasn't much of a negotiation, from the interviews my line manger knew what I was looking for / would accept.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Glassdoor in March 2013.
Interview Details – Initial conversation where a phone call with a sales manager. The questions circle around work experience, behavioral and "what would you do in this situation" style questions. Nothing really unexpected as I think the company is looking at the ability to sell yourself and you specific examples on how you have been successful in other sales roles. That was followed up by a Skype interview with the sales manager. That was followed up by a face to face interview with the sales manger, director of sales enablement, and a sales presentation on a company (your choice) to the sales manger, director of sales enablement, a senior account executive and a enterprise sales representative.

Interview Details – I was contacted via LinkedIn and asked to phone interview. I spoke with the Marketing Manager on the phone and was later invited in for an in person interview with the team. Met with all 5 team members and received a verbal offer the next day.
I had other offers on the table but choose Glassdoor because everyone seemed so excited to speak with me and enthusiastic about my background. They seemed to be genuinely excited about my potential there so I rejected 2 other offers and went with them.
Interview Question – Really mostly skill and background questions Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Glassdoor in January 2013.
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Glassdoor in June 2012.
Interview Details – I can't imagine the job search without Glassdoor, so imagine my excitement when the opportunity for a sales position opened up. Over the course of a few weeks, I had a phone screen and was eventually brought in to interview in person at their Sausalito office. I thought the interview went great and the manager I met with was an absolute pleasure to speak with. However, after a long while of waiting I was informed that they were no longer hiring for that position. I understand things change quickly in this industry, but I had taken time off from my current position to interview with them and the ultimate slap in the face was that the job is STILL posted. If I didn't make the cut that's fine, but I feel like I wasted my time and did not receive an appropriate response. Even if they were to reach out now, I am so turned off I'd rather stay where I am because I'm not confident this company has their act together or is respectful of their candidates time.
Interview Question – Tell me your best clean joke. Answer Question
The process took a day - interviewed at Glassdoor in February 2012.
Interview Details – 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.
Interview Question – What operational challenge did you overcome? Answer Question
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Glassdoor in July 2011.
Interview Details – Met with one sales manager who asked me questions about my sales process (prospecting, approach, closing ratios, follow up). He liked what he heard so he turned me over to another sales manager who put me on the spot to sell him on what I had been selling just prior. A quick role play later and they asked if I could come back in a couple of days and meet with the VP of Sales.

Interview Details – Glassdoor does not have any recruiter for hiring software engineers. I applied online directly on their site and got an interview call within 2 weeks of my application. There was an initial phone screen conducted by a senior engineer at glassdoor. The initial phone screen was ok but the engineer liked my problem solving skills and i was called onsite for the interview. I had 3 technical interviews and 1 interview with a product manager. I found the place to be really exciting and people there were really nice. I got an offer the very next day. Meanwhile, I had 3 other offers as well. I really liked glassdoor but I was not sure about commuting since it is 50 miles away from where I stay. After giving a lot of thought about it and after talking to the VP of engineering and the CEO, I was convinced that this is a place where I would have a great learning experience. I decided to relocate and join glassdoor and accepted their offer.

Interview Details – When the recruitment intern from GlassDoor.com called and asked if I was interested in having a 30 minute phone interview the following Monday, I said "YES"!
I LOVE glassdoor.com, and am a user and thought "How cool! Wouldn't it be great to work for a company that I already believe in and subscribe to!?"
Then I went to www.glassdoor.com and read some reviews of the company. OMG! Every reviewer entered a five rating... across the board! Everyone who works there LOVES, LOVES, LOVES IT! Who could not resist wanting to work for this incredible company!?
Then I read some of their press and I thought to myself "Wow, so much solid funding from so many reputable VCs! "Usually I steer against start ups, but this sounds too good to be true! "WHERE DO I SIGN!?"
So Monday came. My interview was scheduled for 2:30pm. At 2pm, my work phone rings. A young man introduces himself. He is with glassdooor.com. I'm happy to hear from him, but ask if I got the time wrong, as I had thought our interview was scheduled for 2:30pm. He puts me on hold. He comes back and apologizes "You're right, it's for 2:30pm. Here is my cell phone number, call me back here at 2:30pm." "Will do!," I promise.
Ring-a-ding-ding. It's 2:30pm. I'm calling. Once, twice, three times. Nobody is answering that cell phone number.
Odd, I think.
I call the Intern/Recruiter. Tell her about the mishap. She reschedules us for 2:30pm the very next day. He will call me, she assures me. She has all my contact info. I'm psyched again.
Next day is Tuesday. It's 2:30pm. No call. Now it's 2:40pm, still no call. You guessed it, 3pm comes and goes.... and noooooo call.
I went home that night a bit discouraged. I had been so excited. Such a cool job! Such a cool company!!!!
I make some dinner. I walk into my home office. I pick up my messages. Mister GlassDoor had called me at precisely 2:30pm. I check my email. Mister GlassDoor had emailed me there at the same time as well.
Odd, i think.
I write back to Mr. GD. "I'm so sorry I missed you! However, you wrote and called me at home. I'm at work during the days!"
No future calls. No future emails. Nothing.

It is a culture that treats you like an adult. They expect you to come in and work hard because being a newer company we can have a direct impact on Glassdoor moving forward. But is very relaxed atmosphere as well. A break room with tons of food to snack on and breakfast is provided daily. Also there is a grill outside so you can bring in your own food and get to grilling for lunch. There is a lot of room for professional development and growth. Glassdoor provides a lot of transparency in the company, which is important because that is what we do for our career community. There is an open door policy where you can walk into any of the execs office and talk with them about pretty much anything. I also like that the company is really cohesive and there is a lot of collaboration across many departments. Everybody wants to see the company grow and become a market leader. There are no egos here which can be a problem with many start up companies. I would say Glassdoor has already been one of the most enjoyable experiences of my professional career. I can not wait to spend the rest of my career with this company.” – Full Review
