    Interview

    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.

    Interview

    Phone interview first, then 4 different Interviews with managers, pretty laid back. Asked a lot of what if questions. Then sit with a sales person and shadow them for an hour.

    Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Product Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at LivingSocial.

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at LivingSocial.

    Interview

    Applied on their website- took a few weeks to hear back. Had 2 short phone interviews with HR and then a Skype interview with my potential managers. HR was really helpful and great to work with and the interviews were casual and not intimidating- basically just talked about my interest in the company, background, and what I could bring to the role.

    Inside Sales Associate Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

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

    Interview

    Fairly easy. Meet with four people - groups of twos. They run through your resume and ask about yourself. Ask why LivingSocial, and what is your take on the product. Each interview they say should be 30 minutes each, but they are definitely both shorter.

    Senior Marketing Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at LivingSocial (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I had an hour phone call with a recruiter, then coffee with the manager of the position. After these initial screenings I had an interview at the headquarters with the SVP of the department. After I passed that, I went through a "super day" which consisted of 7 or 8 half hour interviews plus a presentation. The last interview was very long and the presentation was nerve wracking but not that bad. All in all, the HR and recruiting really stood at to me as stellar and I was impressed with the entire experience.
