    Inbound Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Groupon in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    The process took a little longer for me, they said I would start in August and interviewed me in April. Turns out that I ended up starting in June. They asked me easy questions, like what motivated me, how I handle rejection, what I would say to a merchant with objections, etc. My in-person interview was fun, I loved the office and was welcomed by everyone. Was asked more difficult questions, but none that I did not know because I researched the company...know the CEO, but that should be a no-brainer...Heard back with an offer a day later!

    Interview Details

    Relaxed method, interview is about determining if the job is a right fit for you and if Groupon is right for you, they take anyone and take lots of college students who have little sales experience

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Groupon in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Had an initial phone screen, which went pretty well. It was your typical phone screen. Then since I was interviewing from the west coast, I had two Skype interviews. They went pretty well and wanted to get to know me before they asked me situational questions. All in all, just be yourself and you should do fine.

    City Manager Interview

    Application Details

    interviewed at Groupon in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    My interview was really about culture and skills fit. Making sure I meshed with the upper mgmt team. There was no serious quant questions or deep dive into specific situations. Though keep in mind, I have been told that others were given much more stringent interviews. But the main concern was how I would fit in the Groupon ecosystem.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Groupon in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    They moved very quickly in the interview process. It was a matter of 2 weeks from initial contact to an offer letter. The final interview was done over Skype and was very laid back. All people that I spoke with were super friendly and helpful. Not only did they make me feel at ease but they also made me feel like I was talking to a human, not someone reading questions off of a paper.

    Interview Questions
    • There were really no questions that were unexpected. The normal interview questions but mostly just personality questions.   Answer Question

    Nothing about the offer was negotiable.
