    Customer Experience Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Groupon (Chicago, IL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The 3 people who interviewed me were very nice. However they were not organized and the interview was all over the place.

    It didn't take to long. The first was the boss the second was the assistant and third was the other person with the position I interviewed for.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Groupon (Chicago, IL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screen, then Skype with hiring manager, then in person with 7 people. Very focused on the business oriented questions with the senior leaders and other partners asked more behavioral questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you had to deliver difficult news to a team and how you made sure it was heard. Tell me about a time when you had to turn around a low performer. Tell me about a time when you had multiple competing priorities and how you kept the team on track to deliver. Lots of business/hypothetical questions from those involved - how would you approach this etc.   1 Answer

    Visual Designer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Groupon (Chicago, IL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Two sets of phone interviews with a rotating roster of hiring managers and department managers. Absolutely amazed that I flew through the last round of interviews to be told I would be contacted for next steps. I followed up with a thank you email...then nothing. TWICE. These are kids with no concept of professionalism and follow-through. If I'm not qualified that's fine, but I don't think it's asking too much for employers to have the decency to let candidates know one way or another where they stand in the process. Very disappointed with Groupon's lack of professionalism.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Groupon (Chicago, IL) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, received an email the next day to set up a phone interview. Phone interview was straight forward about my experience, talking about the position and compensation. Came in a few days later for an interview. Met two different managers that interviewed based on my ability and experience in sales. I had none. Emailed a follow up that night, didn't hear anything until a week.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Groupon (Chicago, IL) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Was emailed about potential fit. Thirty-minute call was straightforward, and the recruiter was stoic but positive. Was thrown off after not making it to the next steps, as I thought the call went well.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Groupon (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Not a very good interview process. Any company that makes their candidates go through 3+ rounds of interviewing says a lot about how the company is run. Also not afraid to leave their candidates in the dark for weeks.

    Business Development Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Groupon (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    My on-site visit consisted of a tour of the very cool office, two interviews with team managers and shadowing of a person in the position I had applied for. They were very relaxed and made small talk with me before asking situational questions in my interviews. Really cool environment, very young.

    Business Development Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Groupon (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Fairly straight forward process. The first round was at my university as Groupon was there for a career fair. Second round was on sight at their headquarters in Chicago, IL. Their headquarters are super fun and vibrant and seems like a good, collaborative place to work. They want to get a feel for your personality and for your work ethic. Because the job involves a lot of cold calling, they're interested in how you handle rejection. If cold calling is a deal breaker for you then this may not be the position for you.
