    Interview

    The process was pretty simple and quick. The recruiter knew a lot about the team. Then it was all google hangout interviews with the team. Everyone was pretty laid back and working from home.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at LivingSocial (Washington, DC) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview lasted about an hour. I had two meetings back to back, each with two managers. As far as interviews go I felt it was pretty reasonable. It was challenging as all interviews are, but definitely not overwhelming to too intimidating.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at LivingSocial (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    This was a several-hour process, whereby my 4-5 people rotated into the room and asked different questions. While many focused on my previous experience, there were also many cultural related questions which were meant to see how I would fit in within the department and company as a whole. The people were all friendly and all of the questions were pretty typical interview questions, nothing supremely unique

    Interview Questions

    • How do you handle working with a partner/business who is disappointed or wants something different than what LivingSocial is willing or able to offer?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation - was a "take it or leave it" offer

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at LivingSocial.

    Interview

    Much like everyone describes here, come ready for a mock pitch. It was a one-stop interview and i met with 2 managers. Wear a suit/ dress your best. It was pretty casual on their end, they couldnt answer many of my questions. Nor could they stop watching the world cup game going on behind me.

    Interview Questions

    • Q: are you willing to come on as an associate, and ramp up to sales exec?
      A: NO

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at LivingSocial (Washington, DC) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process took awhile. I applied for the position and was contacted almost a month later. We had a brief phone interview, where we talked mainly about the position, salary, etc. and then they set me up to come to the office a few weeks later. There, I met with 4 different hiring managers. Not too difficult of an interview process. Found out a week later if selected to move on.

    Interview Questions

    • Is it ever ok to bend the rules, and if so, explain a time when it is ok. Why do you want a sales position with LivingSocial? Tell me about a time when you were really successful achieving a goal, and then tell me about a time you completely failed at achieving your goals.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at LivingSocial (Washington, DC) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Interview went well. They verbally offered me the job the following day. Took them five weeks to follow up with me only to renege on the offer (They just hired a new VP of Marketing and she decided to turn the senior manager role into two coordinator positions). Unfortunately, I stopped interviewing with other companies because of the verbal offer. Based on the post-interview experience and speaking with former Living Social employees, I now know it was the best thing that could have happened for me and my career.
