I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at LivingSocial in June 2011.
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
3. Are you willing to work late? (they work in shifts there so some people end up starting and ending working alot later) Answer Question
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.

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 – mock pitch Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at LivingSocial in May 2009.
Interview Details – Rigorous interview process, but impressed with the entire outfit. Upon uploading a resume to their website, if you're a good candidate, you will be contacted by phone to setup an initial interview. Once I passed that interview, I was flown to Washington DC (on their dime), placed in a nice hotel, and shuttled to the Living Social home office along with a van load of other candidates. Once there, you are put through a private interview. If you make a good impression, you then sit through a group interview. If you still make a good impression, you are given the opportunity to present a mock sales presentation and closing. Final selections are made after you go back home.
Interview Question – Mock presentations are always nerve wracking. Study up on the company and prepare something ahead of time that you can adjust if necessary. Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at LivingSocial in September 2013.
Interview Details – It was so quick! Someone from HR contacted me to set up a phone interview. The interview took about 20 minutes, with the last five minutes consisting of me asking my questions. A few days later I went into one of the DC offices to do an in-person. They told me to dress business casual and bring copies of my resume. I interviewed with three separate managers for about 30 minutes each. They all had their own copies of my resume, so I didn't need to hand any out. The atmosphere was very laid back and they allowed me to ask lots of questions. They were mostly trying to learn more about my work history and make sure I was a good fit. Therefore, they didn't ask a lot of questions like, "Tell me about a time when..." (though there were a couple). The questions were mostly, "I see X on your resume. Tell me about that."
Interview Question – Tell me about yourself.
How did you come across the position and why do you think you are a good fit?
Tell me about a time when you worked with a difficult client or coworker.
