I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor in Jun 2022

Interview

A recruiter reached out to me and initiated the conversation / process via email. From there, they provided me a background on the company, the role and what they were looking for. We then discussed my background (current / prior projects & programs). The recruiter was very transparent about the organization, compensation, benefits, and the interviewing process (feedback, loops required, debriefs, feedback I received post-debrief, etc.). I had a conversation with Engineering Leads, Product Leads and even peers on the PgM team at Glassdoor. What I enjoyed most was the conversational element and the transparency that everyone had. Everyone was very warming, welcoming, and every encounter felt like a true conversation. It was very nice to witness everyone's transparency about the company (+ future of the company), benefits, perks, and reasons why they really enjoy working at Glassdoor. Everyone truly embodied the company values. For the first time in my interviewing experience, I didn't feel like I was the only one pitching myself throughout this process. Everyone was enthused to discuss why they love GD, the perks, frequent company holidays, ERGs, and how nice and warming all of their peers are. My hiring manager was extremely candid, warming, and throughout my interview, I gained a lot of context surrounding the org, their leadership and strategy. Beyond everything, I was able to tell that my hiring manager would be an amazing lead, mentor, coach and someone who I would want to work with which really helped me when making my final decision.

Interview process took weeks for the technical round , went well but then no response for weeks and then just said NO without any feedback. Don’t expect any feedback, they just say Yes/No. Very unprofessional.

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor

Interview

The first call was great! The recruiter was amazing at describing how the call would go and how long it would take. She was very good at putting me at ease as she walked me through each portion of the call. I let her know that it was the most professional screening call I'd ever had for a position opening. The second interview was a zoom call with one of the team members for a technical screening. He was very courteous and professional throughout the call and was also easy to talk to. The recruiter was again very helpful at explaining the when/where/how/why prior to the interview. The third and final step in the process was a panel of zoom call interviews with the Director, another team member, the leader of a related team, and a member from a related team, finally finishing up with a recap with the recruiter. Each individual was friendly, open, honest, and up-front about what they were interested in knowing. They were professional and courteous throughout each of the calls. I received prompt and glowing feedback from another recruiter shortly after my final interviews, but with a caveat that they had not yet interviewed enough people to make a hiring decision. That threw me for a loop a bit and at that point I had written the position off as unlikely. A few days later the original recruiter reached out to me to keep me in the loop and let me know they were still considering me and wanted more information regarding my pay and other requirements. She apologized for my misunderstanding, that I thought I was out of the running, and let me know I was very much still under consideration. After some back and forth regarding the position and pay we came to an agreement and they offered me the job which I promptly accepted!

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Glassdoor in Sep 2022

Interview

The interview process entailed a recruiter phone screen, and interview with the hiring manager, a presentation of past work, and interviews with Design and Product. Overall, everything was super smooth and I always felt like I knew where we were in the process. Whether or not I got an offer, I was going to write this review. I am a firm believer that recruiters are the face of a company and a reflection of the organization—they can truly make or break the experience and perception of the brand. Britney Martinez was so communicative, transparent, and collaborative throughout the past few weeks—exactly what a candidate wants and needs. As a naturally curious person, I Britney endless questions about the company and the role, and she answered every single one, and if she didn’t know the answer in the moment, she was honest about that and followed up with an answer in a timely manner every single time. I felt so confident that nothing would fall through the cracks. Some will say it’s just a recruiter doing their job, but I’ve worked with many recruiters and very few people do the job as excellently as Britney.

Interview

I met with the recruiter first over a phone call and she told me that I would be meeting next with the hiring manager. Instead, I met with another manager and at the end she stated that I would be moving to the next round. Instead, I received an template that I would no longer be moving forward. Given Glassdoor's transparency, I requested feedback with no response.

I interviewed at Glassdoor

Interview

Not sure if the disorganization and discourtesy [to follow up] was unique to the recruiter or a reflection of the organization's culture. - Had a phone interview with the recruiter, but I couldn't hear half of what they were saying because they were in a very noisy environment (it honestly sounded like a party was happening in the background). - Was told that the next round would be a Zoom meeting, but a Zoom link was never set out and instead it defaulted to another phone interview which resulted in the interviewer's tardiness due to the mix up. - The interviewer seemed to suggest that I'll be speaking with the team in the next round of interviews at the end of the conversation - And then they ghosted me despite follow ups requesting status and feedback.

This was the first stage of the interview so it was a 30 minute phone call with a recruiter. Overall incredibly informational and the recruiter was very transparent. They discussed with me the company's missions, the role description, salary range of role depending on location, and what the interview process looks like. They also asked a couple background questions about experience and academics.
