    Senior Engineering Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter on LinkedIn and the tech stack caught my attention. After a call with the recruiter, I was asked for a technical phone screen. The screening question was a good mix of algorithms, data structures and design.

    After clearing technical phone screen, I was invited for on-site interviews. There were 6 interviews excluding recruiter. I requested to spread the interviews over 2 days which was accepted.

    Interview Questions

    • Algorithms and data structure related questions. Pretty straightforward DFS, backtracking and Sets.   5 Answers
    • My people management style. Challenges faced in my (then) current role, was asked to provide examples etc.   7 Answers

    Senior Business Operations Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mill Valley, CA

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Mill Valley, CA).

    Interview

    Rigorous process and positive experience. Recruiter screen, phone interview with case + behavioral questions, excel/PPT homework assignment, then an on-site with three cases and an additional behavioral experience. While the process was time intensive, in my experience, it was on par with the level of investment required for BizOps roles at other tech companies. I appreciated how the process enabled me to meet various people at different levels across the team, which helped me assess whether the team and role would be a good fit for me.

    Senior Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor in January 2020.

    Interview

    Karat interview and then call for onsite. Onsite interview never materialized as they deliberately kept postponing . Then they converted onsite interview to virtual interview and then 2 days before the interview sent a mail that position was filled. Meaning all along they were waiting someone to accept the offer while wasting other candidates time. Would not consider this company again.

    Learning's from this: Ask the recruiter how many other candidates they are interviewing and get to know the stage they are in. (What applies to candidates holds good for companies as well). This is one interview where I wish I had failed in phone screening itself !

    Sales Development Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Chicago, IL) in January 2020.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter to do a video interview with pre-recorded questions to get an understanding of my personality and why Glassdoor. I then had a phone interview with the recruiter which was really more like a conversation about the role which I loved. I then was brought into the office for the onsite interview where I met with two managers and two people currently in the SDR role. I was then brought back the following day for a final interview with an SDR Manager in which I did a cold call simulator. I felt pretty confident about the interview and everyone I interviewed with/met was wonderful. It was one of the best-interviewing experience's I have had. Unfortunately, Glassdoor decided after my interview process to hold off on bringing on another SDR at the time which was unexpected. I wish that was not the case because Glassdoor seems like a really great company to work for. Aside from the last-minute change of direction with their hiring needs, it was a great experience and my recruiter Nate was wonderful and so quick to answer any questions I had. I wish every company did interviews the way Glassdoor does.
