    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Groupon (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Laid back interview. The hiring manager had on jeans and seemed more nervous than the interviewee. But once you all loosen up it almost seems like a coffee brunch amongst friends.

    In-person inter view was very unorganized, with several people in and out, seemingly unaware they had an interview that day. They had several people having to jump in with no information.

    Interview

    Rushed and quick. The lady that phone interviewed me spoke a lot and was loud, and didn't ask me a lot of questions. I've had better phone interviews from other companies this week.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    The role and career opportunity wasn't very clear. I had other interviews that I felt better about, so I decided to move forward with another company

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Groupon (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Applied through a school program, so I submitted my resume through them, waited about a month and got an interview. Scheduled it with recruiting via email, went to Chicago headquarters and interviewed with four people at varying levels in the department. The interview itself took about two hours and I didn't see any of the office but the room I was interviewing in and the lobby. Heard back from them two weeks later.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Groupon.

    Interview

    I applied online and was quickly contacted via email by two different people in HR--one to ask my availability and another to schedule. I had one technical phone interview in which the interviewer seemed rushed and uninterested, then received a sympathetic 'continuing our search' message from HR the same day.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Groupon (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    When I arrived it was at least 7 other people in the lobby waiting to be interviewed as well. When it was my turn my name was card and I was led to the interview room. I interviewed with a woman and then with a man. The interview lasted around 45 minutes. I received a call back but I wasn't able to answer when the lady called and I was never able to reach her afterwards so I just assumed I didn't get offered the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Groupon (Chicago, IL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    A recruiter emailed me the day after I applied, I had about a 45 minute phone interview where they asked simple questions about my background and why I would want to work at Groupon. I was then invited in for an interview where I got a tour of the office and met with 2 different managers. The first person I talked to was harsh and aggressive, however, I think he was being that way to make sure I could handle the position. The second person I talked to was very helpful and we got a long very well. I left the interview feeling indecisive about the process but was offered a position the next morning.
