    I have been working at Groupon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Good reward system,
    - Team work: Productive work atmosphere among co-workers,
    - No need to be politically correct. As a sales rep you can be yourself.
    - Good school for newbies in corporate sales.
    - You get help from your manager to make sure you reach your goal.
    - You will get the feeling that you get to impact your environment around you. Challenging but rewarding job.
    - I personaly think that Groupon is a huge stepping stone in my career generally.

    Cons

    - Heavy workload to reach your goal
    - You constantly need to renew yourself. You cannot rely on your past achievements. Working at Groupon is a marathon not a sprint.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Groupon.

    Interview

    L'entretien s'est déroulé en 2 etapes 1 er entretien avec le manager et le second avec le directeur commercial, approche tres convivial et sympathique dans l'ensemble, apporte peu d'importance sur le parcours et le profil du candidat mais sur la connaissance que l'on peut avoir du groupe et de son mode de fonctionnement, il faut etre prêt a savoir presenter les différents caractéristiques de l'entreprises, business plan, cible, etc ...
