    I worked at LivingSocial full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Livingsocial was a great place to work. The people really make the company. Passionate and fun. One of the best work experiences I've ever had.

    Cons

    Leadership took big bets, which didn't always pay off. There were several rounds of layoffs, which brought down the "fun" factor.

    OUTSIDE SALES Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Buffalo, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at LivingSocial (Buffalo, NY) in June 2012.

    Interview

    I received a call from a recruiter who must have seen my profile on LinkedIn. They were very professional, did a standard interview, followed up by two mock sales pitches for the position. After that I was referred to a LS regional sales manager and then flown to Washington DC for the interview.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you use a needs based selling approach.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    It is a package deal, take it or leave it. They can be accommodating on the start date.
