    Software Engineering Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Glassdoor in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewer sounds sleepy and tired, every time I finished my talk I need 3 secs to get the response. He finished my interview in about 15 mins and let me ask questions. Anyway, as a company for users to evaluate company and prepare interviews, I expected glassdoor to have a more professional interview.

    Update:
    Actually I got the second round interview, maybe my interviewer is just tired, or there is some signal problem.

    Another Update:
    The interviewer of second round interview is really nice. And I got the final round interview. But I just have no time to finish it. The overall interview experience is pretty good.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Glassdoor in March 2016.

    Interview

    It was a brief phone interview that lasted about 15 minutes. She started by asking me some basic questions about Glassdoor, then told me about the internship and asked me for relevant experience. After I got through my chatter, she opened it up to questions. I asked a few, but nothing too wild since it was a screening. She told me when she would be in contact with me again.

    Channel Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Mill Valley, CA (US)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Mill Valley, CA (US)) in December 2015.

    Interview

    I was referred to the position by a current employee at Glassdoor. I sent my resume to the Hiring Manager and had a brief call. I also had a short call with HR. After that I was set up for my first set of in-person interviews. I met with different levels of people from different teams. This took approximately 3 hours. After this process I was asked to create a presentation on myself and why I think I would be a good candidate for the role. I presented to about 8 people. It wasn't too difficult and the attendees ask questions throughout. I will say it is a bit distracting that some are looking at their computers and typing when you are presenting. Lastly, I had to take a "personality test". This is actually a personality test and a bit like the SAT. There is a LOT of math, so give yourself plenty of time to take it. Oh and brush up on your algebra before starting. After this, I actually received an offer fairly quickly.

    Operations Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sausalito, CA (US)

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Sausalito, CA (US)) in February 2012.

    Interview

    While the interview objective was for the purposes of vetting, it was a rapid fire screening with no opportunity to ask questions or participate interactively. The interview was conducted by the CEO who (while pleasant enough), was rushed and impersonal. He would have been better served by having an HR generalist read through questions and capture responses. Disappointing as this type of phone screen doesn't provide for enough input or feedback to reveal skills, cite characteristics and core competencies that would prompt further exploration . . . wasn't a fair assessment.

    IT Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Glassdoor in January 2017.

    Interview

    Initial phone call with internal recruiter. Recruiter (on speakerphone in an echoey room) asked some questions including current salary, and then basically told me I live too far away, and that their max salary was far below my current, but suggested I could still speak to the hiring VP if I wanted to. Followed up with a couple of emails, never heard back. Rather surprising since I was an internal referral from one of their executives.

    Interview Questions

    • General background questions. The type of questions led me to believe the recruiter didn't really understand the nature of the position or my experience.   Answer Question
