    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Groupon.

    Interview

    Applied online and received an email from the recruiter to set up a call. The recruiter was very friendly and described the role in full details. Then she asked me simple background questions to which I thought I gave pretty good answers. She said she was interviewing a couple of other candidates and would get back to me once she is done with them. But I have'nt heardb back from her for a week. After a couple of follow up emails she sent me a reply saying they chose to move forward with another candidate.

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Contacted by recruiter followed by phone interview with manager and then quick turnaround to onsite interview. Interviewed onsite by 5 people. They were typical fit interviews with several case questions sprinkled in. The team is friendly and seem genuinely excited about their work, although the one red flag I got was that there appears to be a lack of business process standardization resulting in frequent fire-drills and/or longer hours. Offer was made within a week, but declined due to better fit and benefits from other companies. Overall, a very positive interview process.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Groupon (Chicago, IL) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I was first sent an email saying that my resume had passed their initial disposal process, and would move to the second round where I would have a phone interview, then after the phone interview, I was told that I would receive an email 2 weeks later telling me if I had made it through that round. I then received the email and was told I did not make it past that round.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at Groupon (New Delhi (India)).

    Interview

    Interviewed for a B.A role with the Products Team in Delhi,
    Process takes about 10 days & the organisation has a clearly chalked recruitment plan with 3-4 stages of discussion culminating to an offer.
    The process usually starts with the HR & moves on to Managers & Senior Managers from within the Team who try to identify your cultural and professional fit and ultimately to the CEO himself. I personally found the process very transparent & the interviewers are eloquent about work , vision & your role within the team, so don't hesitate to ask questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Since I was being interviewed for the Products Team, the discussion was very focussed on the productisation value chain, wherein they try to analyse if you identify with their business model. One or few stages will be consultative with market sizing & estimation questions and towards the end more focussed on the role itself with operational discussions about troubleshooting & identifying bottlenecks in the product lifecycle. Importance is given to previous work, so be conversant and know what you have done professionally in and out   Answer Question
