Our 2014 "Glass-doers"

Summer interns at Glassdoor aka "Glass-doers" are given the opportunity to learn in a hands-on environment working on real projects. No getting coffee'll be doing real work that makes a huge impact on the company and helps people around the world find the jobs and companies they love.

Check out what our 2014 "Glass-doers" had to say about their experience:

"Working at Glassdoor as a summer intern has given me the opportunity to learn from the best and confirm my decision to pursue my chosen career path. Plus, I have learned so much in the past 12 weeks that I¹m excited to go back to school and apply my new skills in a classroom setting. I am definitely a Glassdoor fan!"

Sarah Stoddard, PR Intern

"This internship has helped me learn what IT is all about and how to get started in my IT career. In school, it will help me because I can fix my computer whenever it crashes. It can also help me when others need help fixing their computers."

Sheldon Smart, IT Intern

"My internship at Glassdoor has helped me understand what a startup environment is like and I believe this will help me in the future because I plan on creating multiple startups, so it is nice getting experience with this kind of working environment early on. Reading all of these reviews on different companies has helped me understand what suitable working conditions are and what makes people happy in a workplace. This knowledge will help me hopefully create a fun and enjoyable work space when I create my first startup. Working at Glassdoor has also helped me by teaching me how to manage my time more wisely in order to meet the goals of each day. This skill should help me manage my school work better, once the new school year starts in late August."

Saahil Saini, Content & Community Intern

"Glassdoor has helped me develop the skills I need to work as a vital member of a team. I enjoy time spent cooperating with my fellow co-workers. Working at Glassdoor has taught me the patience I need to complete certain tasks. I am able to focus my attention to my daily goals while maintaining an enjoyable internship experience. My time at Glassdoor will provide me with quality experience working at a startup which I hope to pursue later in my career."

Noorisingh Saini, Content and Community Intern


"My internship at Glassdoor has opened my eyes to SEO optimization and the power of partnerships, which has given me a solid foundation of business development. My experience at Glassdoor parallels my interests at school as my major is Technology, Culture, and Consumer Behavior. Glassdoor has shown me how technology can shape culture, and in our case jobs and employment."

Kirsten Craig, Business Development Intern

We respect and value the intelligence and dedication each person brings to the company day after day. We strive to create an environment that is open and flexible to the needs of individuals. Here, it’s not just about the time you put into your work, but more importantly, about the quality of work you produce.


There are six core values that serve as a compass for our actions here at Glassdoor:

  • People Matter: value & respect each individual
  • Integrity: always do the right thing
  • Accountability: say what you will do, and do what you say
  • Passion: be committed in heart and mind
  • Ownership: treat the company and its resources as your own
  • Leadership: shape a better future

And, to make sure that it’s not all ‘work, work, work’, we blow off a little steam at monthly deck parties and quarterly off-site company events. You’ll also find some pretty active employees who bike to work, form company soccer teams or get together for hikes and runs on the nearby trails. Oh, and did we mention Bagel Wednesdays, Donut Fridays, and the healthy snacks that we stock in the kitchen? 

Plus the Glassdoor Culture Committee, made up of employees, helps to keep Glassdoor a best place to work. Part of the Culture Committee’s job is to help organize our quarterly awards program, The Smashies, in which employees nominate and select their fellow employees who exemplify the best of Glassdoor.

    I have been working at Glassdoor


    I've worked here for some time now and I really appreciate all that Glassdoor has done for me. They have provided me with extensive training, were patient and fully supportive with my development, and have a genuine interest in my progression. The personal growth I've made in the past months is truly incredible and all the credit goes to the Management team at Glassdoor. They have given me skills to pay the bills!! And the culture....


    The job is very demanding with high expectations and big quota. Getting along with management is important because being a politician bodes well in the office. But realistically these are issues that you will find in any and every tech company. I hate to make Glassdoor sound perfect, but it truly is a great place to work and is a special thing to be apart of.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Glassdoor in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    The process took less than two weeks, only because it was right around the New Year. I was contacted pretty quickly after applying and spoke with a Manager on a Tuesday. We had a great conversation about my experience and the role. I was followed up with on Monday by a recruiter who talked to me about the interview process and asked how my previous conversation had gone. She also asked some questions about my background. I went in for the in-person interview the next day and spoke with two people- conversations were great and they both seemed to want to be sure I had the capabilities, but also that I would be a good fit with the team. Two days later, coffee with the first manager I spoke with which was a good conversation, and covered a lot of situational questions to see how I handle things and prioritize. Last step was a presentation the next morning. I had asked for pointers and knew overall what they would be looking for- it was just my job to execute and show them that I had the skill. I was offered the job later that day and accepted. There was a lot of follow-up from the recruiting team along the way and everyone was very pleasant to speak with. Questions asked were relevant.
