    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    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.   4 Answers

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Chicago, IL (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process at Glassdoor was really positive overall. I applied online and within a few hours was asked to schedule a phone interview with a recruiter. This was mostly just the recruiter giving me additional information on the position and what it’s like working at Glassdoor, pretty simple. After that, I was asked to come back in for an in person interview with SDR managers and 2 current SDRs. This was more of a structured interview, 30 minutes with each manager individually and 30 minutes with both SDRs at once. The third and final round was a 15 minute presentation to a few SDR managers. The presentation was a final way to sell myself to the team, and to express my abilities to do the job. Overall, it was a great process. I felt well informed the whole way through, and the team was all super nice!

    Product Designer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (San Francisco, CA (US)) in November 2019.

    Interview

    I was first contacted by the recruiter after having my friend refer me for the role, and then was forwarded to setup a call with the HR manager quite quickly, and after that was quickly invited to interview onsite for the role. Throughout the entire process, the recruiter was very attentive and constantly checked in on me as well as supported me through asking how was the call with the hiring manager and also keeping me pumped up about the opportunity which was great! I have never been through an interview process that felt so personable and it really helped me ultimately decide to accept the offer to work with the company. As for the onsite, I first met with the recruiting coordinator who showed me to my interview room and helped me setup my laptop to do my presentation via Zoom and give me the schedule for who I would be speaking with that day. I noticed the structure was different from the one that was sent to me beforehand, but I figured things can always change up but don't think it made the experience negative in any way. I then met all the people who would be talking with me that day (hiring manager, PM, engineer, other designers), and presented my work for the first half of the hour. Then, came the whiteboard challenge portion which was unique because the interviewers played roles of stakeholders from one of the few design challenges they allowed me to see prior to the interview day and pick to solve. Afterwards, I had a free lunch with the PM and hiring manager and then had 3 1-on-1's with an engineer and the other 2 designers which were all great conversations. At the very end, I met with the hiring manager one last time who then saw me out and was reached out to by the recruiter a few days later to be given the verbal offer! Overall, the entire process took a little over a month from when I first got referred.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (San Francisco, CA (US)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    Recruiter screen followed by phone interview and onsite. They focus on culture fit a lot and be prepared to answer of lot of questions related to that. Onsite was 2 coding and 3 behavior rounds. The weird part was the hiring manager kept asking me names of previous managers along with when I worked with them. Even though I was uncomfortable sharing that information, he kept on pushing me to disclose that.

    Front End Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (San Francisco, CA (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Overall great experience with Glassdoor and the 4 step interview process.
    1. Introduction phone interview. From the very beginning the internal recruiter was very open and encouraging. She laid out what to expect and showed interest in my own expectations and goals.
    2. Karat technical assessment. After the phone screen was a technical interview with a third party interview platform, Karat. Over a recorded video conference with another engineer, I was asked a few open ended questions about React and JS. We then proceeded to work and talk through a technical coding challenge over a shared screen that had multiple iterations. I heard back from the internal recruiter who then helped set up the next interview and also provided the team's feedback on the recorded Karat interview. No other company I had interviewed with up that point had offered feedback so freely. It was refreshing and helpful. She also gave me a heads up on what I would most likely be tested on with the next technical interview, namely CSS.
    3. Technical interview with internal engineer. Great opportunity to talk with someone I would be working with at Glassdoor. It was easy to work with this person on the technical challenge, as they were curious about my approach and reasoning behind certain decisions that I was making. It gave me a sense of the culture at Glassdoor in working with the other engineers.
    4. Onsite interviews. The 5 hour onsite included multiple rounds of technical and behavioral interviews. Many of the technical interviews focused on open-ended, practical, white-boarding scenarios on topics such as web layout, React component design, and data fetching. While I am confident in my programming capabilities, I appreciated that at no point was I expected to whiteboard perfect code, they were mostly concerned with my approach and reasons for each decision. Each interviewer was easy to work with and eager to answer any questions that I had for them about working at Glassdoor. I was able to eat lunch with several of the team that I would be hired to work with, which was an excellent opportunity to talk about tech interests, Glassdoor culture, and get a feel for the general team vibes and excitement that they had for the product they were working on. The interview with the Product Manager was also very insightful into the product vision and was mostly focused on my experience working with others, challenges that I have faced, and how I have overcome them.

    At the end of the day, I had come away from the experience confident that I had been given a a great opportunity to show my strengths and how I could be a good fit for the team, while at the same time, having learned quite a bit from all of the interviewers whenever there was any knowledge gaps. I really got a feel for how Glassdoor encourages learning and collaboration within teams and across the organization.

    Follow-up: The internal recruiter was very communicative and set expectations about when I would hear back and what an offer might include. She followed through in a very timely manner (1 business day) with feedback and an offer! No unpleasant surprises, thorough details, and a reasonable time frame for my response.
