Digital Marketing Manager Interview

Digital Marketing Manager
San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at LivingSocial in March 2014.

Interview Details – I applied online and their recruiter from the East Coast office contacted me. We spoke for about 30 minutes. She was flat and didn't know much about marketing. She told she would follow-up with me the week after. She never contacted me! I sent several follow-up emails and I never got a reply. A poor experience and unprofessional. Not impressed.

Marketing Consultant Interview

Marketing Consultant
Dallas, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at LivingSocial.

Interview Details – Very quick and easy. Phone call with 1-2 recruiters, face to face or phone call with your direct manager and final phone interview with regional manager.

Interview Question – Typical interview questions   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – You can negotiate. They always offer $40,000 base but negotiate, especially if you have advertising experience and connections in the community because you will not make much in commission. You're paid based on how the promotion sells and people use Groupon rather then LivingSocial.

Marketing Consultant Interview

Marketing Consultant
Seattle, WA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at LivingSocial in January 2012.

Interview Details – Called by a recruiter. Called by manager. In for a role play. Sent home with homework. Called again by recruiter. Hired and flew to DC for week of training. Nothing complicated or out of line. They turn and burn so many sales people it is a cattle call.

Negotiation Details – Standard

Market Programmer Interview

Market Programmer
Washington, DC

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at LivingSocial.

Interview Details – Applied online and had a phone interview the next week. Came in for an in-person interview the following week and met with some of the team, then two managers, then someone in HR. Everyone was very friendly and no questions were very hard (more like "What are your strengths/weaknesses?"). They really look for culture fit above prior experience since the job is so specialized.

Interview Question – Favorite Movie   Answer Question
