I have a job interview coming up. I met the CTO at a networking event. The work seemed interesting and seemed to matter, so I figured, "Why not?".
However, on researching the company on Glass Door, about half of the reviews refer to 80 hour work weeks, high turnover rates, and a general "sweat shop" approach to the software development process. The other reviews are glowing, but feel kind of fake. I want to be wary of sites such as Glass Door and go into the interview with an open mind, but I also don't want to get suckered into a sanity draining environment.
So the question is: How can I find out if a company is a sweat shop in an interview?
