Classic bait and switch.
Online Chat Representative (Former Employee), Tempe, AzOctober 9, 2014
Pros: cheap lunches, good pay, good benefits
Cons: poor training, too much emphasis on sales, not enough support for employees.
First off, when starting the company, they will tell you it's mostly tech, with a little bit of sales. They're lying. It's sales with a little bit of tech.

Then, it gets better almost immediately, especially when you get your first pay check, and then the first bonus once you get the hang of everything.

But, that is only a short relief. Then you start – more... seeing the company for what it really is. The constant push for sales gets old, you want to help your customers, but you can't, because if there's not a sale to be made, they want you to keep the contact as short as possible.

There are a few tech dedicated departments, but they mostly deal with internal escalations, never the public. They got rid of the Online Support department, which was dedicated tech support via email, and switched to chat/phones only.

I don't see the company continuing its success in the future. Especially if they don't start treating their employees better. And yes, the fancy new buildings, and benefits are nice. But, that doesn't make up for barely functioning computers, barely functioning internal tools necessary to do your job, nor, the way you are treated unless you are the top sales person on your team. – less

Ok place to work
Tech Support/Business Consultant (Former Employee), Tempe, AZJuly 30, 2014
Pros: great pay and compensation
Cons: favoritism among supervisors with certain employees
I worked for GoDaddy, but the supervisors were so overwhelmed with a big team, I was not able to get the weekly 1on1 to improve my skills that I should has received, so I made a lot of dumb mistakes that could have been avoided if I had the 1on1 weekly support that I should have received like everyone else.
There is a lot of favoritism at the company – more... and exceptions of rules made for certain employees that was somewhat unfair.
Great benefits and compensation, contests, and pay rate. – less

Work hard / Play hard
Office Manager (Former Employee), Greenwood Village, COJune 3, 2014
Pros: benefits package, 401k, employee outings
Cons: increasingly corporate/investor focused (less fun)
The autonomy and creative opportunities where the highlight of working at GoDaddy. I was given leeway to improve the office environment, to work on PR projects, assist personnel in other departments, cross-train, and to grow with the organization. It was a memorable career experience that I would love to replicate in some manner in the future.

New leadership needs to understand the domain knowledge and experience of existing employee based cannot be replaced with new recruitment over night just because they are hiring in the Silicon Valley.

Inbound Sales and Technical Support Representative (Former Employee), Tempe, AZJanuary 21, 2014
Pros: pay, benefits
Cons: high stress, high turnover, high sales quotas
You may be hired as a "customer service rep" but don't be fooled. All this company wants you to do is sell- and if you don't you can kiss your job goodbye. Training is a joke. You are not taught enough about the products they sell nor are you trained in sales tactics. Management is always changing and forget about advancement unless you can sell extraordinarily – more... well- which again you are not told this is part of your job responsibilities nor trained in. This company boasts of being the biggest and best at what they do but it is just a matter of time until their bubble bursts. Look elsewhere for a job. – less

Bait and Switch Tactics
Hosting Support Agent (Former Employee), Gilbert, AZMay 19, 2013
They will first reel you in at the first interview (group interview) of talks about your first year making "only" 65K-85K and your second year a little over 100K. You go through a group interview, take a test, they immediately weed out half of the people right there. You then take an interview date and time and have a one on one interview. If they do – more... hire you they schedule you for a training class that starts about a month out. The lies continue the first day of training where they have people come in telling their stories of success and how they have a GED and make "well over six figures". You go through 2 weeks of training, then take a final, if you get less than 75% then they axe you right there. After that you go on the phones for two weeks and really get a taste of what the job is going to be like. If you can last that amount of time (and they decide to keep you) then they put you on a team in which you do not know if will have your job in two weeks. You could be the top performing individual for 15 years and if you have a bad pay period say bye bye. The people that do make good pay (it is not even close to 100K, I knew the top performer and they made 48K last year) end up leaving anyways. They kept getting sued by former employees so now they have a "personal improvement plan" structure in which not only do you have to make sales but meet other stupid goals such as "I will consult on every call" and if the management "feels" that you did not consult then they can "legally" fire you. – less

Internet Sales and Support Consulstant (Current Employee), Hiawatha, IowaMay 7, 2013
Pros: excellent compensation/benefits
Cons: sit down all day
I've really met some amazing people at Go Daddy and I have been influenced by the positive culture created there. The most enjoyable part of the job is speaking with customers about their businesses and hearing the excitement about gaining an online presence with their business. The hardest part of the job is being on the phone all day. I really enjoy – more... working with people face to face so it is difficult to be on the phone all day long. – less

Fun and challenging but well worth the work.
Sales & Support (Former Employee), Scottsdale, ArizonaMarch 8, 2012
Pros: fun, good pay & benefits, customer oriented
Cons: 24hr company with odd hours
Go Daddy has a very laid back environment that keeps everyone going. There were many days that I did not feel like I was at work.
