Interview Question – What makes you cool? View Answer
Reason for Declining – I declined because the interviewer came in wearing a torn tee shirt and swim trunks. The conversation revolved around how the people at Groupon are "just cool, man" and where the employees go out to drink after work. I was extremely unimpressed with lack of professionalism and the attempt to appeal to my "lazy college student side".

I remember leaving feeling like all my questions were very challenging and interesting and that all of my interviewers were very warm, welcoming, and considerate.
