    Account Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Chicago, IL) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Initial phone screen with recruiting manager, who asked detailed questions. Next, a phone screen scheduled for 30 minutes with a hiring manager who was 15 minutes late. The call seemed totally irrelevant - he said at the beginning it was just to make sure "we're on the same page" and set up a presentation.

    During the mock presentation, I was given materials to prepare and mastered the scripts and materials they asked of me and added some of my own styling. Despite having a very successful track record in sales, the role players went out of their way to be disengaged and unexcited during the presentation, and afterward gave feedback that I should have asked "what they enjoy most about working at their company" and "didn't ask open-ended enough questions" that were "yes or no" despite none of the questions I prepared could have been answered with a yes or no and were more to dive into their strategies for recruiting and branding.

    They were on their computers the whole time and only reconnected during the interview to look up every now and again.

    I was also told some of the language I used was the most "softball/layup sales language" imaginable despite the fact and they overlooked all other positives of the presentation.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Glassdoor.

    Interview

    Phone screen with the recruiter, then 2 phone screens with directors on the team (case-based), then a take-home case assignment, then a full day of onsite interviews.

    This was one of the more rigorous interview processes I went through during my MBA recruiting process, but it gave me a good understanding of what the day-to-day work would actually involve. Everybody I spoke to seemed both really smart and really passionate about their work, and it was ultimately those conversations that led me to accept the offer.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mill Valley, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Mill Valley, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Witnessed one of the WORST experiences

    I was reached out by a recruiter, who seems to have joined the company 6 months ago according to his LinkedIn profile, after submitting my resume online. The recruiter was extremely unprofessional and clumsy, to say the least.

    Let me provide more details. He sent an email via Jobvite to schedule an initial call. On the day of our scheduled call, the recruiter forgot to call. I follow-up with him via email in half and hour to check to what happened. He did not reply the same day and sent an email a day later saying "I was in a meeting and forgot my laptop to track time for our scheduled call. Can we talk tomorrow afternoon?". Although he apologized and later asked me to provide him my availability for next day, he wasted my time. I still gave him the benefit of the doubt and again sent my availability for the following day for the afternoon. Little did I know the recruiter will again waste my time and not confirm the call, even though he was the one who informed he is available in the afternoon and wants to talk.

    Nonetheless, he sent me an email late night the next day AGAIN apologizing and asking to schedule the call for next day. Remind you, this was the 3rd time he was scheduling the call. This time he did call, but sounded lost or disconnected from the beginning of the call. Usually after the call, I follow-up with the person with a thank you note, but with him, I did not as I knew working with him would have been a nightmare and if a company promotes such sleazy practice I am better off with a different employer.

    Advice to the HR team:
    I would suggest please hire experienced or professional recruiters, who know what they are doing. Recruiters are the salespeople for the company to pitch prospective candidates the company culture and hire the best talent in the market. If the recruitment team treats candidates the way this recruiter did, the company will instantly be discredited.
    Please RESPECT someone's time and have the courtesy to follow-through scheduled appointments.

    Overall, a very comprehensive process that gave me a good idea of what I would be doing in the role. I got to meet a lot of faces that were not on the immediate team.

    Sales Development Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Chicago, IL) in September 2017.

    Interview

    Thorough but awesome process. 3 brief phone calls, which were all very conversational and mostly just about background experience and why sales, an in-person interview, also very conversational and easy going, and a final presentation with a Q&A after. Young and great people that were very fun to talk to. Recruiting coordinator, James, was really helpful during the process and super nice! Make sure to sell yourself on why you want to work as an SDR and why Glassdoor. They are looking for motivated candidates who are driven by competition and working on a team. Definitely recommend the process to anyone looking to work for a growing company with a fun company culture!

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Chicago, IL) in September 2017.

    I applied mid-September, and the entire process took about 2 weeks. There are 5 parts to the interview process:
    HR phone screen
    hiring manager - phone interview
    remote screenshare presentation about Glassdoor (30 minutes)
    in-person meeting with 2 other hiring managers
    an in person meeting with sales director

    It is by far the most strenuous interview process I have ever undergone, but it was worth it. Great company, culture and salesforce. My recruiter was awesome! He gave me complete transparency through out the entire process. You go J!

    Director of Product Marketing Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Mill Valley, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Glassdoor, let me start my saying that it is NOT cool if a candidate has to wait till Wednesday afternoon to know the outcome of a nearly full day of interviews completed on Friday. Especially when someone has invested as much work and love into the process as I did. I almost wish I hadn't interviewed because the process weakened the Glassdoor brand for me.

    My process involved: Phone round 1 followed by Phone round 2 followed by in-person round 1 followed by in-person round 2. And I suspect more rounds if I had cleared that one. The past Product Marketing leader had apparently set a bad precedent on many fronts.

    After I finished the process, it was clearer to me why they hadn't been able to close the role for over 4 months. The process had several kinks right from the recruiter-Glassdoor communication, to internal PM-PMM leadership dynamics, to the fit of the role within a very entrenched team culture. There were several inconsistencies in what I heard from individual team members and it seemed like a process to weed out, not include in.

    I urge Glassdoor to evaluate their own hiring process and do a better job of follow ups.
