Glassdoor.com and Jobschmob.com are Fun

I’ve recently stumbled over a couple of new sites that I need to add to my Job Site Resource page. They are Glassdoor.com and jobschmob.com. Both, if anything, are entertaining. But perhaps in the coming contraction of jobs they are worth something more than a few chuckles.

Glassdoor.com
This site offers employees to rate the place of employment. The data entry part is pretty thorough, but not too time consuming. It allows for some free flowing opinions as well, so that is good. There is a salary function that allows you to select your company and input your statistics and then after a couple of days of review you can see yours and others as well. All in all, it is a good site for someone who is curious about a certain company and a certain role in the company. One downside is that is still pretty new so some companies don’t have much in the way of reviews or salaries. One final note, this site is the ultimate “why didn’t I think of that?”

jobschmob.com
This site is a little bit more tongue in cheek than Glassdoor.com. It provides its users an opportunity to vent about their bosses, their coworkers, their company, and so on. It is geared towards humor which is good because the target audience – the miserable – loves company. I guess the site is a little bit like theonion.com but with more real life stories. I recommend this site as an occasionaly diversion or after a bad episode with your boss (someone certainly has it worse).

About benleeson
My name is Ben Leeson. I currently work for a large financial company in IT. I went to school at Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY. I graduated with a B.S. in Business Administration concentrating in HR. Professor William Brown taught me and I enjoyed his classes; even acquiring an appreciation for just about all things HR. I didn’t pursue a job in that field after college but I’ve kept up with it. This blog will further my fascination with all things HR. I hope to grow my knowledge of the area through thoughtful writings and spirited feedback. I will attempt to have a fairly routine style so anyone reading can come to expect certain segments. Please excuse my incorrect grammar and occasional misspelling.
