    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Groupon.

    Interview Details

    Applied through a career fair. First, received a call from recruiter which was asking about my resume and was very general. Second, I had a technical interview on coderpad (an interactive tool similar to hackerrank). The question was pretty easy but the interviewer was not that helpful. Later, I was called for a second interview with a team manager which was generally asking about my experiences and background.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied online – interviewed at Groupon.

    Interview Details

    Asked about passed experiences and some general questions. The questions are quite open, including character, and hobbies. Overall, it was very positive and nice experience. I wish that I have had more industrial experiences and less schooling! :) There may be other rounds of interviews and more technical. The interviewer was very nice and professional.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Groupon.

    Interview Details

    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.   View Answer

    Software Engineer Interview

    Interview Details

    The first round is on-campus back to back interview with two interviewers. One is Software Engineer, one is PM, both of them asked technical questions. The first interviewer asked me the object-oriented design concept and how to know if a linked list has a loop. He also went through my resume and asked me some details about my projects. Another interviewer asked me how to find all permutations of a given array. Even though I gave the correct answer, he seems like more interested in how I explain my logic.
