    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    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.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Groupon.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Received email from a recruiter to discuss the position. After the 30 min conversation it was decided that I come in to interview with 2 managers. (Before I go any further make sure that the recruiter is working in the same department as you're applying for.) I applied for a Sales role and the recruiter stated that she worked in a different department. Should've left the interview when she stated this. Managers asked basic sales questions. About work history. Waste of time.

    Applied online on a Monday. They contacted me Tuesday for a phone interview which was Friday. Very basic resume questions. Had the inperson interview the following Thursday, got offered the job on Friday. Very laid back. I think most of the interview was me and my questions.
