Overall, I thought the process was fair. I got the offer, which was nice. I think they chose me mainly on my previous background as a Market Strategist at Groupon.

I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at LivingSocial (Washington, DC) in Jun 2016

Interview

I interviewed twice over the phone, once with HR and the other with the managing director. It was smooth and effective. However, in-person was a different story. I met with a panel of many people, and I was not impressed with the "talent." Incredibly, the person who was being sent packing was part of the interview process. She claimed that I would be "replacing" her, notwithstanding the fact that her title was completely different than the one which I was interviewing her and she had immigration problems. It was obvious that most of the personnel are not educated or trained in business. However, I did meet with the CEO and was impressed with him and his ambitions for the company. I think he's very talented and smart, and should hire more MBA's.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at LivingSocial (Washington, DC)

Interview

One of the best interview experiences I've had in my career. I credit this largely to the recruiting staff who were responsive, informative, very positive and enthusiastic about the company , and successfully coordinated the entire experience with feedback at each step. Starts with recruiter phone screen, then skype/google hangout interviews with peers/hiring manager, in-person interviews with larger team and presentation to panel of stakeholders. Great for determining skill set and culture fit.
