    Digital Marketing Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at LivingSocial.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted through email after filling out an online application for a initial phone screen. The process took a little over a week to schedule. The recruiter who called me for my phone screen interview might have either called me on her mobile phone because her voice sounded so muffled. I could barley understand what she was saying at times and her questions were not all that great. I am not sure if she was really prepared for the interview. She might have been sick as well because she was coughing throughout the whole interview and again she was very hard to understand over the phone in general. It wasn't her English skills, it was just her general way of speaking was very mumbled and hard to understand at times. Typical situational questions were asked and questions about your experience mainly were the focus of the interview. They might need to hire a better recruiter because she was one of the most bland recruiters I have ever dealt with.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Interview Questions
    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.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed 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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at LivingSocial.

    Interview Details

    Went through 4 Interviews. First was a phone screen with a recruiter from home office. Pretty standard questions, nothing too difficult. Then I had to prepare for a role play interview with the same recruiter. Also very standard stuff and the recruiter gave me great feedback. If you move on you are sent to home office in DC for a round robin style interview. Here you will do a role play for 3 different managers. The next step is to speak with someone not in the sales department. Personally, I think this is a waste of time but is easy and is the last step.

    Interview Questions
    • They rely heavily on the role play scenarios. Be prepared and think outside the box.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They offer a very competitive comp plan, but the culture of the .com world, your comp plan you have when you start will change multiple times over the course of your time there.

    Marketing Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at LivingSocial.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted 2 days after submitting my resume. I had a basic phone interview with HR, who told me more about the company than asking me questions. The questions were basic, mostly about my experience and why I wanted the position, but HR was a little stumped by the questions I asked them. They did, however, discuss salary + benefits in the first interview which was a little odd since they were not yet offering me a position.

    After the phone interview, I went in for an in-person interview a week later with a couple of managers which felt more like a meeting and a scope-out than an interview. I then returned the following week to meet again with the managers and had to do a mock pitch of selling the brand to a merchant. Went back again for one more "meeting" and am waiting on offer.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing difficult or unexpected- but be prepared for a mock sales pitch, which they seem to do with every candidate.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    No need to negotiate, They offered a very competitive package.
