Right now, I would say that you need excellent sales skills for most positions, and if you are joining a technical team, make sure you are an exceptional coder or systems engineer.
The culture is sell sell sell and pretend like nothing is wrong in the work place. Meetings are awkward and several times a employee brings up concerns about something we are rolling out but gets completely shutdown and your voice is pretty much not heard. Maybe someone is listening but to me it felt like there was a gag order or something.
How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at GoDaddy? What are the steps along the way?
For me getting hired was fine. There was nothing strange just good questions about qualifications and your standard interviewing questions and was professional. Sometimes it feels like an interrogation but not here.
The changes that took place in regard to providing technical support pivoting to 'just sell them something' made for a lot of conflicts toward the end of my employment.
If you were in charge, what would you do to make GoDaddy a better place to work?
Having a dedicated department that were made available technical support agents on the phone would bring in quality talent and give the whole company better optics on how GoDaddy operates can be the most effective public relations tool available.
