Holland Dombeck McCue A.I., Google for Jobs, Holland Dombeck 2 Comments

Two topics that have been gracing the HR and recruiter headlines lately – for better or worse are Glassdoor’s sale to Recruit Holdings and AI. For me, Glassdoor is a partner I love to hate.

Glassdoor. The talent acquisition site all HR professionals and leaders love to hate.

Let’s face it. HR pros have a long history of being uncomfortable with sites like Glassdoor.com. After all, the only people that use Glassdoor.com and sites like it are disgruntled ex-employees that you fired, right? Wrong. It was wrong 5 years ago, and it’s horribly wrong today.
