Glassdoor Economic Research has unveiled a new report showing that difficult interviews lead to more satisfied employees later on. Based on more than 150,000 pairs of interview and company reviews shared on Glassdoor from the same individual at the same company, on average, a 10 percent increase in interview difficulty leads to a 2.6 percent bump in employee satisfaction later on. This finding is consistent for employees in the six countries we examined in North America and Europe. Learn more in the full study and on the Glassdoor for Employers blog.
