I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at LivingSocial in June 2010.
Interview Details – Early days super sessions, flown in, grueling 3 stage interview. Not sure if this is the process anymore.
Interview Question – What merchant would you sign up first? View Answer
Negotiation Details – Professional. No options, the offer was as is.
I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at LivingSocial in July 2011.
Interview Details – Interview process was much like a cattle call, being moved from one interview room to another for approximately 5 hours. Process could have been performed by one individual with some business knowledge and over the age of 30. Being a District Manager for a competitor and being over the age of 40 with 20 years experience being asked basic questions by kids in their 20's was insulting. I couldn't believe I was actually asked by someone interviewing me what B2B was. I wouldn't have hired that person for a receptionist position yet she was interviewing me. Out of the 30 individuals that interviewed with me only 3 where called back for second interviews, all under 30, except me, with very little experience. Seasoned sales people should not waste their time if they are over 35 interviewing with this company.
Interview Question – I couldn't believe an early 20 something female was asking me what B2B was on my resume. As a former District and Regional Manager for GM I was shocked and saddened I was wasting my time with interviewing with them. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I prefer to work for a company that has experienced management personnel in their ranks. Although I know this company is young and growing I did not wish to be the father of my employees.

Interview Details – I applied and was contacted within three weeks of applying. They asked me to come into their main offices in DC which are spread all over the city, so I ended going through three buildings over the course of interview. First they give you an impromptu tour of the grounds, then you interview with the head of the department that you're working in.
Interview Question – 1. What do you want to be doing in the next couple of years
2. Do you have any experience with customer service

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at LivingSocial.
Interview Details – I had an initial phone interview. Follow up by a in office interview with the sales manager. I was unimpressed in his demeanor. When I asked him what were the principles of the company, he could only name one. The recruiter wanted to give me details on the interview, but only 4 hours before the interview.
Interview Question – Besides starting your own business, what was the greatest thing you have ever accomplished. View Answer
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at LivingSocial.
Interview Details – I got an email for a phone interview about a week after I submitted my resume and cover letter. Interview went fine. Recruiter asked about my background and then some questions related to the position. Told me she'd let me know if I was chosen for the next round the following day, and then didn't. I followed up via email two days later, and she said "we think you're overqualified but we'll let you know." Haven't heard from her since. I just read the employee reviews and am kind of glad that this didn't work out.
Interview Question – No difficult questions, really. It was just a scoping out call. Answer Question
