        Job seekers looking to narrow their search results have limited ranges in the search categories. Although you are able to search by distance from a city; the option goes from 15 miles, to 25 miles, to 50 miles, to 100 miles. That may be realistic when you are searching in the middle of Montana where drive times are less than one minute per mile. However, when driving in congested areas, like Atlanta, where 1 mile may take you 3-5 minutes, expanding your search radius from 25 to 50 miles could add hours to your commute. There needs to be a condensed range on the scale. Likewise, the salary filtering is horrible.

        If I start a brand new search, only entering Atlanta, GA as my location, I am shown 81,000+ jobs. The salary range defaulted to $3K-$531K. If I try to change the salary range, Glassdoor only allows you to slide a scale which leaps from a minimum pay of $3K to the next option which is $135K! How does that make sense? I'm looking for jobs that pay between $80K-$120K. How do I do that? In summary, this site needs a lot of help on its ability to allow job seekers to apply filters for finding the correct job, with the correct salary range, within the correct commute, for their unique situations. Until they do that, I'll have to stick with Indeed and a few other sites.

        I recently started an account on Glassdoor to hire employees, but I never had a chance to finish the post and later forgot about it altogether. Until I received a charge on my account of three hundred dollars that I never approved (knowingly) and they did have 6 resumes when I went back to check. Of course the applicants were not what I was looking for. To me this site has bad business practices by undermining and scamming money from people just looking for help. I recommend Indeed or at the very least, the better option would be to cold call people in your community because this site is here to take money from as many people as possible before the jig is up. Don't fall for their deception. Good luck out there!

          Had an account on Glassdoor for maybe 3 months, Would not let me access my account until I posted a salary or wrote a review, tried and tried to leave a review of past employer and Every time I hit submit, an error message would pop up and not let me Post, Error messages kept popping up even though everything was correct! This site is slow and real hard to navigate, Don't waste the time!

          Jobseekers beware and don't open this door! Glassdoor requires that you sign up for other multiple services and job websites in order to progress in the job application process! Then when you finally get to the submit an application section it displays a "sorry we are experiencing technical difficulties" message which kicks you off the website! I clicked no on the furthering your education sections but I am receiving constant calls from college placement services. Many hang up the instant they identify me providing no service at all and the others rudely hang up the instant I point out that I am already enrolled in a college!

          I never did get to submit an application for the job I clicked on to apply for after uploading my resume. The jobs they sent as a match we no match and hours away from where I live! I asked to delete the service and profile and while it confirmed that I had unsubscribed it again went into an error state when that request was being processed! The calls and emails won't stop and they have been no help at all!

          I wrote two reviews on Glassdoor's website for two of my employers, one previous, one current. Both of these were immediately removed. When I asked Glassdoor why this occurred, they told me I broke the following community guideline: "Each individual is allowed one review, per employer, per year, per review type."

          These two reviews are my only reviews, so this guideline was clearly not broken. Furthermore, they told me that my account is "compromised" and any reviews written in the future will be removed. What is ridiculous about this is that they told me there is no way to fix this. They made a mistake and have no process to remedy it, which is ridiculous.

          Glassdoor is not only unethical in how they charge people high fees without notice, but they claim to NEVER remove any reviews for any reason, but my former employer SimpleBet in New York has clearly been getting them to remove very important reviews. There are people trying to warn the world about what a scam this company is and prevent people from falling into their trap, and Glassdoor is removing these? How about some ethics!

          I am a poor college student trying to find employees for my startup. With no information or warning, I was hit with their most expensive charge, $245, and left with no way to dispute it. It is IMPOSSIBLE to get a hold of them via phone, email, or contact form. DO NOT USE.

          Unauthorized charges. Had to dispute as fraud. This company is garbage. Stick with Indeed. They charged me $225 then refused to refund me. I emailed them and they were completely uncooperative. Do yourself a favor and don't deal with these people. They don't understand customer service.

          Entered all data for a free trial job posting including my credit card before I realized that beyond the free trial I would be automatically charged fees I thought too high. Despite quitting the web site without authorizing charges, somehow they went through anyway. I never again visited the site or reviewed any of the 7 candidates that applied, which they acknowledge, and did not know I was registered until a $225 fee appeared on the credit card. I immediately deactivated the account, 3 days after the charge but they will not credit me. Beware!

          Companies influence Glassdoor UK to remove poor reviews - how they do this, well, nobody knows for sure what would induce Glassdoor to comply. Maybe everybody is just being nice. Once Glassdoor have reached their understanding with the organization concerned, they either reject reviews until they are edited by the user to make them more palatable, or they state that they are rejected outright owing to 'violation of community guidelines'. No further information is given other than a statement that 'we reject reviews if we have reason to believe they are bogus'. As a result, the whole picture of UK businesses is grossly distorted.

          The staff who review the posts are just robotic yes-men/women, who disregard any questions you have with their bland statements. After all, they can hardly defend the indefensible, can they? Furthermore, when you get a Glassdoor account, you will receive swathes of irrelevant job alerts and high percentages of jobs on the alerts are out-of-date. The reason for this is that advertisers know they are a joke, so they have to 'pack' their job content with old material in order to look viable. The whole site is in fact one very large joke. My advice would be to not bother using them and to research companies independently through networks. These people preach impartiality, but do not live up to their end at all.
