Coupons.com Incorporated is the leader in digital coupons, including online printable, social, mobile and loyalty card promotions. The company is the driving force in transforming the multi-billion dollar coupon industry and ushering it into the digital world. For decades, the Sunday newspaper has been the dominant distribution method for coupons, but as the reach of the newspaper declines and a growing number of consumers are online, more and more consumers and brands alike are looking to digital. Today, Coupons.com and its digital coupons network is far and away the largest provider of digital coupons.
The company’s goal is to provide coupons everywhere a brand has the opportunity to interact with a consumer across the digital domain. Coupons.com is not only shifting the multi-billion dollar Sunday coupon insert market online, it is also expanding both the supply of coupons, by using the power of the Internet to lower the cost of entry for coupon issuers, and increasing the demand for coupons, by introducing a whole new consumer demographic to coupons via the Internet, social media, and mobile phones. Coupons.com already enables clients’ coupon promotions in web pages, email campaigns, social media initiatives, mobile devices, store kiosks, shopping carts, consumer electronics and more. The company intends to expand that reach further across the digital landscape—anywhere there is a digital connection to consumers creating a digital marketplace where brands, retailers and consumers can connect at every step along the consumer’s path to purchase. The possibilities are endless…

Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferNegative ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. I interviewed at Coupons.com.
I went through 3 phone interviews, 1 with the recruiter and 2 with the hiring manager, each was about 45 minutes. The first phone interview with the hiring manager was about my job experience. The second phone interview with him was a bunch of problem solving questions. I'm not sure why this couldn't have been done during the phone interview. I was then asked to come for an on-site interview. I interviewed with 5 different people. 4 of the 5 people asked me more problem solving questions and 3 of them asked me to write a SQL query. I felt like they should have planned ahead of time so they weren't all asking me the same things. The interviewers were not interested in trying to sell me on the job or the company, they only wanted to quiz me. I was completely turned off by this. None of them seemed happy or passionate about the company or what they are doing. Nobody tried to connect with me on a personal level, which was very off-putting. I was asked to come in for another on-site interview, but declined because I was not interested in working with this group. My advice to this group: Realize that you are also being interviewed. Try to make some sort of connection with the interviewee because you want to find someone you'll enjoy working with and seeing every day. Try to coordinate better. People who are interviewing are usually taking time off their current job to jump on the phone with you and taking half a day to come for on-site interviews. It would be nice if you respected this and tried to use the interviewee's time more efficiently.
- Write a SQL query. Given the online customer funnel, choose a section and discuss how you could increase conversions. Answer Question
