Walking through the doors at each Glassdoor location, the view may be different but the feeling is the same: pride.

We embrace emotional intelligence here, and that means hands-on training to develop the tools you need to connect with colleagues through relationship building and constructive dialogue. Our employees also receive three days a year just to volunteer, and while benefits like 100% paid health premiums enhance the experience, it’s the work we do and the people we work with that we like best.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    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.   3 Answers
    • My people management style. Challenges faced in my (then) current role, was asked to provide examples etc.   1 Answer
