Employees rate Mill Valley 1.4% lower than the overall average
I have been working at Glassdoor full-time (Less than a year)
I enjoy working with a team that pulls for everyone's success.
The on-boarding process could be a little more streamlined.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Mill Valley, CA (US)) in September 2017.
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.
