    Completed the application online and received a follow-up call a few days later to schedule a phone interview. During the interview, the interviewer was negative and short with her words. My interview lasted 20 minutes. Do not choose the 1pm time slot for interviews.

    Application Details

    I applied online. 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 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.

    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.
