    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at LivingSocial in October 2013.

    Interview

    The initial interview is covered by an HR person who spends 20 mins on the phone with you before passing on to the hiring manager. The response time is poor and I found the HR person to "spring interviews" on you--like, are you available for an hour tomorrow? Then the response time to your questions or scheduling can be days or even beyond a week before a response. Currently still interviewing.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing too out of the ordinary for a sales role position. Very curious about the flow of a mock interview...   Answer Question
