I have applied for eight jobs through Glassdoor. The company sends me Job listings quite often. I have had two interviews with a couple of banks due to the fact of Glassdoor referring me. I haven’t been hired yet but staying optimistic I will find the correct job for me through this company.

Here at glassdoor you can apply with ease. You get to know more information of the company that you are applying for from reviews to expected salary. These information helped me a lot in my decision making.

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.

This company only posts positive reviews, even if they know these are fake reviews (ex:non-existent company location, non-existent positions). I posted an honest review about my experiences with my previous employer. A few other employees did the same. Everything was written in a professional manner. The next thing, all those reviews got deleted. Instead, the employer hired some unknown individuals to write fake positive reviews about the company. Not only these reviews were fake, they included fake location and fake job titles that never existed in the company. I notified Glassdoor about fake reviews. They answered that those fake reviews are fine, since they don't violate Glassdoor's community guidelines. Glassdoor deleted all honest reviews and kept all fake reviews.

I decided to try advertising for a position that was free, but quickly changed to $250/mo for a single ad - more money than many other places I use. The resumes and spam that ensued yielded zero qualified candidates. It was a mix of people who don't live in the area or just don't have the skills for the job, which were succinctly outlined in the ad. I would compare it to craigslist in terms of quality of applicants, but of course that is much less-expensive. Also craigslist generates more applicants overall. Also, when sampling searches to see what job-seekers see, I realize the site's search will invariably include jobs entirely unrelated to one another - and to the search terms - so it would be sort of a fishing exercise for the right candidate to find the right job.

Glassdoor posted a profile of my company which matches in name only. Posts do not match the services we provide. Salaries are not even close to the salaries we pay. There is no mechanism to correct false posts. Posts are contradictory and probably created by Glassdoor staff. I wrote complaints to the management which were totally ignored.

Do not make a decision to work for a specific company based on a Glassdoor review. I worked for the most toxic company you can ever imagine working for. I left a detailed review which I later saw was removed. The company originally had an average of 2 in reviews. The reason they even reached 2 was that the CEO left a positive review himself. There were other negative reviews, in addition to mine. They were all removed, I noticed... And replaced with positive reviews which I could see were made by management.
I mean, just from the text itself, I could point out who specifically wrote them. We're talking about reviews warning people to stay away from such a toxic company... The toxicity level reached the point where an employee reached such a level of depression that once they weren't working there anymore, spent a year in bed, unable to even look for a new workplace- putting the family in horrible financial state. Yet, Glassdoor deleted these feedbacks of REAL employees and approved FAKE feedback from admin. Shame on Glassdoor. If you're looking for real reviews, don't rely on Glassdoor.

I have left reviews for multiple companies and they have a method to keep your negative ones off. First they say the review is not valid (how would they know), second they will say you're a competitor of the company, lol, like seriously, so they take down your reviews. Then you have to PROVE you were an employee of said company. I’ve done that every time showing actually pay stubs, review never appears again. What a scam, GLASSDOOR IS CLEARLY THEY GET PAID BY THE COMPANIES TO TAKE DOWN NEGATIVE REVIEWS ESPECIALLY “STERN AT HOME THERAPY” so that's where their loyalty lies. Certainly not with the truth!! I will post this everywhere so people know how fraudulent their practices and company is!!

I have tried to complete my Glassdoor profile for over an hour. No clear direction of what is remaining. As I believe it is complete. But, the site keeps asking me to complete my profile and doesn't allow me to apply to jobs through the site because again it thinks there is more for me to add. The biggest problem is when you try to call them, (help resolving this) they only have 3-4 selections on their automated phone system and guess what... no selection to talk to a live person. But an automated response to go back to their website... What a crazy system.

My review of former company rejected (with no explanation). I read their rules and followed them. I did, however, post a negative review about a former employer (company) which is, "Engaged," which now makes me suspect they are afforded certain "protections" for associating with Glassdoor. Essentially Glassdoor sales are in a complete conflict of interest with their espoused goals of transparency. I can only conclude that if they have been that corrupted already, their future is not too bright. I don't trust them at all.

I would not use this unreliable website to apply for jobs, or read about company's reviews. They ONLY take positive reviews and ignore lukewarm/negative reviews, so then to attract more companies to use their website. But if you're an individual employee, you'll learn that they only allow biased reviews.

I am tired of constantly seeing repeat job postings listed as NEW. These same positions and companies were posted as far back as 30 days. You get all excited thinking there is a new opportunity but it's just Glassdoor fishing for more. I also don't agree with some of their salary scales. One particular specific management position had a range from $55K-128K. Hard to believe there would be a 70k range in scale. I think it may make some of the applicants overshoot their expectations for salary demands!

I signed up for a free trial as an employer to solicit loan officers through Glassdoor.com. I received 6-10 resumes all of which did not match the criteria of the job description I posted and, in emailing them to cancel my free trial on schedule (I could not electronically cancel, and this was confirmed by calling a sales associate there) at firstname.lastname@example.org, they billed my account anyway. I've tried to contact Billing two further times for a $249.00 credit, but they don't reply… Even after emailing, and their auto reply says 'give us a few days to reply as we're quite busy'.
If they advertise in advance that they offer a free trial, yet they will bill your credit even if you cancel on time AND it is very difficult to get a hold of Billing, what is the value in their ad showing it is a free trial. Ziprecruiter.com canceled my request on the spot via email. Buyer beware of Glassdoor.com. Again, Glassdoor.com is very problematic and nearly impossible to reach as far as any form of reasonable customer service.

I only awarded one star, because zero was not an option. The 7 day trial advertising was deceptive and misleading. We paid $350 after only 7 days, which is not long enough to evaluate an ATS, because the advertising made it seem as if the trial lasted for 30 days. However, we also posted the same jobs at the same time on Indeed, and filled all 4 jobs through Indeed. The quantity and quality of responses through Glassdoor were awful. The building of the employer branding profile was glitchy and didn't work. We couldn't add pictures or update anything within the profile. As a pseudo-ATS, which this is at best, the functionality leaves a lot to be desired and cannot compare to Indeed in any way, shape, or form. Glassdoor's developers need to go back to work for 6 months at minimum to fix all of the glitches. Their "recruiting solution" is every bit as reliable and trustworthy as their employer reviews. Pathetic! Avoid At All Costs!

I have used other career sites and Glassdoor hands down has a more user friendly layout. I like that you can see reviews of the companies you might like to apply for. Once you click on the job you are interested in it brings up reviews, salaries, etc. Also, jobs seem to be most current unlike I have found with other sites.

Job Free Advertising Offer - You would think an organization that is a review platform, would be careful about how it conducts itself. The FREE advertising offer trail for 7 days is not genuine, it trips into an automatic charge. They tell you clearly states you will be charged, do not be tempted. A number of years ago I paid to run an executive CSO, then suddenly found 4/5 years later they ran the advert, I had senior candidates applying for a job that did not exist, which is illegal! I emailed them asking for an explanation, no response. ROI is not there, even what I thought would have been a free advert did not yield a result, which ended up costing me as they deduct payment...no invoice, no confirmation as it might alert you to their unprofessional methods.

We all know subscriptions are not easy to cancel when you get free trial with it. In Glassdoor if you see the option "Post Jobs Free" it's fake, because before publishing the job you have to subscribe a plan, then you can get free trial for 7 days. So technically it's free, but if you're unable to cancel the subscription, you will be charged.
