    Interview

    I applied online and got contacted by a recruiter about a week later. Overall relatively easy interviews. I talked to two sale managers via Skype as I lived far away. There were some behavioral questions but really easy going and easy to talk to.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Groupon (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    In-person inter view was very unorganized, with several people in and out, seemingly unaware they had an interview that day. They had several people having to jump in with no information.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Groupon (Chicago, IL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    A recruiter emailed me the day after I applied, I had about a 45 minute phone interview where they asked simple questions about my background and why I would want to work at Groupon. I was then invited in for an interview where I got a tour of the office and met with 2 different managers. The first person I talked to was harsh and aggressive, however, I think he was being that way to make sure I could handle the position. The second person I talked to was very helpful and we got a long very well. I left the interview feeling indecisive about the process but was offered a position the next morning.

    Easier than I thought it was going to be. basic interview questions. Was interviewed by two managers. Asked you basic math questions. Also asked situational questions. First there was a phone interview, then onsite interview followed.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Groupon (Chicago, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Standard pattern: 30 min phone call discussing my background and why you want to get into sales, followed by an hour-long (2 x 30 min) interview at the company headquarters. You clearly need to have an understanding of how Groupon works, and why it would be beneficial to a company. They want to know if you can easily explain how a company would make money, what the advantages are, and how you would handle a potential client that continues to say no.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Groupon.

    Interview

    Before completing your online application, you had to write a mock email to a local business in order to persuade them to advertise with Groupon. This went well for me as I had gotten a call less than 24 hours later. We set up a phone interview for one week later. The phone interview took about 20 minutes.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Groupon (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Very detailed, it will usually take around 2-4 interviews to get an offer. Definitely understand how they price their deals and what the concept is behind this. Know how to sell that pricing concept to a new client: you're covering their cost of goods, this is a marketing strategy to get people in the door and to try the food, etc

    Interview Questions

    • They will run a scenario with you. It shouldn't be difficult if you understand how they create their features for a deal. Just make sure you know your basic math skills and you should be fine.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Groupon.

    Interview

    Applied online. Received email from a recruiter to discuss the position. After the 30 min conversation it was decided that I come in to interview with 2 managers. (Before I go any further make sure that the recruiter is working in the same department as you're applying for.) I applied for a Sales role and the recruiter stated that she worked in a different department. Should've left the interview when she stated this. Managers asked basic sales questions. About work history. Waste of time.
