    I worked at LivingSocial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Above average pay for Tucson Opportunity for OT Initially was a fun environment Great benefits with multi-level plan Excellent 401K matching

    Cons

    New CEO ruined morale and productivity tool a plunge 8-18 hours mandatory OT weekly Supervisors who are unfit to be in a supervisory role

    Advice to Management

    Employees aren't slaves. By removing all of the fun events and treating employees like chattel, it took only a month for me to go from managing up to 900 cases a day to not caring about my productivity at all.

    Production Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at LivingSocial (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    This was a several-hour process, whereby my 4-5 people rotated into the room and asked different questions. While many focused on my previous experience, there were also many cultural related questions which were meant to see how I would fit in within the department and company as a whole. The people were all friendly and all of the questions were pretty typical interview questions, nothing supremely unique

    Interview Questions

    • How do you handle working with a partner/business who is disappointed or wants something different than what LivingSocial is willing or able to offer?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation - was a "take it or leave it" offer
