Glassdoor Review:

Glassdoor is among a handful of national online job boards, where you can find and apply for jobs in virtually any industry. You pay nothing to find or apply for jobs and/or set up a profile that will help you find positions that are relevant to your interests and experience.

How it works

If you want to search for jobs on Glassdoor, you’ll need to register, providing your name and email address. The site also will occasionally also ask you to review either a current or past employer to maintain your free access to the site.

Glassdoor uses worker reviews to create employer ratings and salary estimates for each of the companies it lists. These reviews can provide a glimpse of salaries; working conditions; management; and other interesting details about the company you’re applying to work for.

Valuable info

We think these reviews are so invaluable that we’ve excerpted some pertinent comments from them in many of the company reviews on SideHusl. It is definitely worth checking the site’s company profiles before you take a new job.

Glassdoor also has a nice blog that highlights best employers; how freelancers can set a competitive pay rate; things you shouldn’t say in a job interview; etc. All of these factors make it an excellent site for job seekers of all types.

Looking for work

Once registered, you can search for jobs by title and city. If you find a job you’re interested in, you can usually click through to apply for that job directly on the company’s website.

If you want, the site will also ping you if there are new job listings that meet your criteria.

Remote work?

That said, by the time an opportunity gets listed on Glassdoor, it is sometimes a little stale.

And this site is not well suited to finding remote and flexible opportunities that are SideHusl’s focus. You can put “remote US” as your location when searching, but you’ll get very few hits.

Consequently, Glassdoor falls slightly short of SideHusl’s top rating.


This is a great site to seek full-time, in-person work. But it’s not a great place to look for remote jobs. It simply doesn’t have the right sorting functions.

Better sites to find remote jobs include Indeed and FlexJobs. Indeed is another free job board. FlexJobs is a curated job board for flexible, part-time and remote opportunities. But it charges a monthly membership fee. You can sign up with FlexJobs here.
