    I worked at LivingSocial

    Pros

    I have to say that every job that i have interviewed since leaving livingsocial in 2012 has been very impressed with LivingSocial on my resume. It has helped me find new opportunities! The offices in Washington DC were so much fun. Everyone was positive and contributed to the start-up culture.

    Cons

    Low base salary of $40,000 for outside sales position. Never ending pressure to get more businesses to run deals when the last deals you signed up weren't performing as promised. Some politics with the traffic controllers.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at LivingSocial.

    Interview Details

    This should be titled the "interview nonexperience." Got an email from the DC HR office asking for my availability for a phone screen. Dedicated a time window outside of work to "chat." Scheduled and confirmed a phone screen (count: 3 outgoing emails regarding a phone screen -- way to allocate resources efficiently rather than picking up that phone.) On the day of the scheduled phone call: no one calls. Lolz. Followed up twice--no reply. Perhaps someone from the HR got involved in a long ping pong tournament or got injured riding a scooter through the office. If latter is the case, I really do wish them a speedy recovery.
