    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – 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.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed 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 – 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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed 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.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Groupon (Seattle, WA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Recruiter sent mail via LinkedIn to seek me out. Tried to arrange a phone screen which took over 2 weeks to get organized once I was able to get in touch with recruiter. Phone screen setup through jobvite service. Interview coordinator was slow to set up phone screens or to reply to mail. After phone screen, no response, but I contacted them via jobvite service and within an hour I got a form letter saying that they weren't going to offer me an opportunity to interview in person.

    Inbound Sales Representative Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Groupon.

    Interview

    Was basically a conversation, no technical questions or sales scenarios. They didn't pry to much into experiences either. Almost felt like a rush event for a sorority, just wanted to see if I would fit in with the culture. As long as you mention liking money you get hired, even though once you get hired you come to realize no one who started after 2012 makes any sort of money here. At least you will learn a lot. Almost good to think of this place as an extension of your college education.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Groupon (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty easy and took about 2 weeks. I first set up an phone call with the recruiter which went really well. She was very nice asked me about my current job and my interest in Groupon. After that I then was scheduled for an in person interview with two of the Sales managers. It was very unorganized and the people who I was originally supposed to see ended up having meetings and they just grabbed two other Sales managers on the fly to interview me. They clearly just wanted to hurry up and be done with it because one of them especially kept looking at his watch like he had no interest in being there or really getting to know me. I felt it was a waste of time. Would not recommend this company.

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Groupon.

    Interview

    The HR process moved quickly but the organization is so fragmented in its culture and work ethic that they "forget" to attend an interview meeting. They are always late to meetings and do not provide immediate or timely feedback. This is not a professional workplace, I would probably call this an ad-hoc revolving door.
