    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Groupon in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Questions
    • After a month on the job, will you be in the top 20%, the middle 60%, or the bottom 20%? What would you do if you were in the bottom 20%?   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Groupon.

    Interview Details

    Was first emailed by HR to do a phone interview. Did an interview a day later and was asked basic interview questions. Like why do you want to work for groupon? Tell me about yourself? etc. I then scheduled a phone interview with the supervisor of the Getaways department. My interview with him was the next day. He asked me to explain my resume, why groupon? what made you apply for this position? etc. He said the HR woman would email me about further steps. She called me about 1 week later to tell me that the position had been filled and thanked me for my time and would keep me in mind for any future positions.

    Interview Details

    Apply during campus career fair. Two rounds back to back interviews 45 min each. The first round went well, the engineer was friendly and the question was pretty easy. The engineer of the second round was not patient, seems not interested in anything I said. Didn’t solve the second question.

    Interview Questions
    • String, int and map were encrypted in some rules. The question is to decrypt a string based on those rules and return a map. Should write helper functions and keep calling them as looping through the string.   Answer Question

    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.

    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.
