    I worked at LivingSocial full-time (More than 5 years)


    Lots of freedom, great benefits, fun work, and very little micromanaging.


    The marketplace is growing more difficult as merchants and subscribers are starting to lose interest in daily deals.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at LivingSocial.
