    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Groupon (Chicago, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for online for a front-end developer position and heard back from a technical recruiter about a week after the initial application. I was asked for availability for a phone screen and then heard nothing for another week. Once contact with the technical recruiter was reestablished I was bounced to a recruiting coordinator to schedule a phone screen with a developer. Once the time for my phone screen came I received no phone call. After waiting half an hour for the phone screen to begin I attempted to get in contact with the recruiting coordinator who had scheduled the phone screen with no success. Four hours after I was supposed to have the phone screen the initial technical recruiter reaches out to reschedule.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Groupon.

    Interview

    Sent resume through an employee referral link. Had a phone interview maybe a week later. Phone interview went very well. Went in for a face to face interview at 4:30pm a week later. Met with my recruiter and had one face to face interview that went well. Sat with an employee to listen to calls for about 10mins then had another face to face interview. That interview was ok. Wasn't as fun as the first one. I kinda felt I may not have gotten the job based off the vibe the second interviewer was giving me. A week later got the "we decided not to move forward email. I think I would've gotten the job if I would've had just one interview with the first interviewer.
