    Glassdoor Recruiter Insights: 6 Things A Job Candidate Should Never Do

    I've been in the recruiting business for a while now, and have seen almost everything in the realm of good and bad candidate behavior, but some common themes do emerge. Here is some bad behavior that I've run into in the recent past. Think about your job search experience; are you guilty of any of these?

    We're #1! Glassdoor Tops The BarkPost Best Offices in America, According to Dogs List:

    Here Are The Best 8 Offices in America, According to Dogs - BarkPost

    25 minutes ago We all know what humans think are the best places to work. But what about the dogs? We decided to poll the canines and ask them where their favored 9-to-5s were. Excluding our office (because frankly, it's so pawesome, it would be unfair), we combed the nation and asked the pooches in the cubicles who had the doge life at their company?

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 full-time (more than an year)


    This company is truly doing something to make the world a better place and I'm honored to be contributing to the mission of helping people everywhere find jobs and companies they love.

    Aside from all the awesome perks like a gym, catered lunch, unlimited vacation and the ability to bring my dog every day, I just love being at Glassdoor. I'm consistently in awe of the good ideas, smart people and a lovable culture we have here.

    One program I'm particularly impressed with is the extensive leadership training everyone goes through. It teaches us how to successfully communicate with one another. I've implemented learnings from this training in to other elements of my life and it's tremendously valuable.


    The performance review process is wanting. After a performance review, regardless of whether or not it was positive, I always feel worse about my job. Compensation and titles are also a problem, based on recent new hires I know I would have a higher salary and title if I were recruited here recently or to a different team.

    There are two companies within Glassdoor: the B2C side (the darling) and the B2B side (the one with a bit of a rude culture problem).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that all members of the leadership team continue to respect the Glassdoor values. I believe this is the key to continuing to cultivate the tremendous culture we have here.

    Senior Web Developer Interview

    Interview Details

    The process kicked off with an e-mail asking to set up a technical phone screen. I was extremely excited to speak with Glassdoor as they were one of my top companies I was pursuing.

    The phone call was scheduled for mid day. I received the call nearly 40 minutes past the time we agreed on (I had given up on the phone call by that point). The interview was off to a rough start.

    We spoke about my background for 10 minutes and then dove right into the technical part. What I wasn't prepared for was what was to come next. I've had many technical interviews on the past. I enjoy them. I look forward to them because it's an engineer's time to shine.

    For the next 35 minutes straight I was bombarded with question after question about the most intricate parts of css and html. Things like list out every possible unit of measure in css. List out every single html5 bracket. Define for me semantic html.

    For 35 minutes straight and without a second gap in between I was bombarded. By the end of the interview I was so off balance from what had just happened. I could hear she wasn't pleased on the phone. I apologized for being a bit frazzled and reiterated my excitement for the opportunity at Glassdoor.

    I hung up the phone and took a minute to think about what had just happened and realized... I just spent 45 minutes talking to this woman and she literally has no idea whether or not I can code. What I was quizzed on was my ability to regurgitate information from MDN. If this woman has been allowed to head up the interview process for any significant time I can't even imagine how many talented engineers have been screened out of the interview funnel because they don't remember that a pica is a unit of measurement in CSS.

    Having not heard anything for a week after the phone screen I didn't have high hopes but I still sent an extremely enthusiastic e-mail thanking this woman for her time and explaining that I was beyond excited about the position. I also apologized for being caught a little off guard with a few of the questions as I prepped for a different interpretation of the job.

    I received a canned e-mail about 3 minutes after my e-mail was sent rejecting me.

    I cannot even express in words how put off I was by this process.
