    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at LivingSocial (Washington, DC) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Initial Phone Screening. Then In-Person interview with three associates within the finance and treasury team. The office was very lively and up-beat, which I expected nothing less from a consumer tech company such as LivingSocial and the interview was straightforward asking you of your background, where you want to be in 3-5 years from now and chit-chatted about your opinions on LivingSocial's business model and future. The process took about a month.

    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.

    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.

    Production Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    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

    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.

      A: NO   Answer Question
