    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.
