    I have been working at Glassdoor full-time (More than 3 years)


    3 years later and I still feel so lucky to work here! My HR (People) leadership team supports me and constantly pushes me to grow. My goals and the goals of my teammates are clear, and we are encouraged to help each other and teach each other along the way. My opportunities feel endless here, there is always something new and exciting to work on around the corner. The benefits are extremely generous: free healthcare for employees, catered lunch every day, an onsite gym and locker rooms, Chariot to take you over the Golden Gate Bridge, and the best view of the Bay right outside your desk window.


    The only constant here is change. If you can't roll with the punches and adapt to new processes, leadership, opportunities or whatever it may be, you might not enjoy the environment here. With that said, these changes teach us to be resilient and adaptable - both invaluable traits to learn in the workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to us like you already are. The surveys, the Huddles (all company meetings), and the constant communication from Robert all help to make us feel like we are in this together.

    Average Interview


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


    Kudos Glassdoor!!

    Very Straightforward and smooth process:
    1.) Initial phone call with recruiter. Basic questions that you would receive on a typical screening call (Background, why Glassdoor, why sales, etc.). If you pass this round, you will hear back relatively quickly on if they want to bring you in for an on-site interview.

    2.) 3-30 minute interview with one SDR and two SDR managers. All three were very relaxed and informal. They are really just wanting to get a gauge on your personality and the kind of experience you would be bringing to the role. Bring your energy and enthusiasm because they want to see candidates with an upbeat attitude and high energy.

    3.) Final Interview: Panel Interview (3 SDR's and 3 SDR Managers). Starts with a 10-15 minute informal powerpoint presentation on yourself, why Glassdoor, why sales, etc. At the end of the presentation they may ask you about 3 or 4 questions pertaining to your experience, presentation, etc. Overall interview was roughly 30 minutes.

    Overall: The interview process with Glassdoor was one of the more organized and enjoyable interview experiences I've had with any company. Each person I interviewed with was personable and pleasant, and nothing that I was asked was anything too stressful or difficult to answer. I think ultimately they really want to see if you would be a great fit and a team player on the SDR team. The recruiter out of the Chicago office James was helpful throughout the entire interview, and he will help you thoroughly prepare for each part of the process. Unfortunately, I was not offered a position this time around, but would certainly welcome the chance to interview again with a few more years of experience under my belt. Glassdoor truly seems like an awesome company!
