    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.

    (Translated from English)

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Groupon (Paris (France)) in February 2011.

    Interview

    J'ai postulé sur le site Internet de Groupon.fr. Après une semaine, j'ai reçu un appel d'une femme très agréable membre de l'équipe de recrutement et nous avons convenu d'un rendez-vous pour une interview. Le jour de l'interview, j'ai rencontré le Manager en charge des Ressources humaines qui était très désorganisé, impoli et arrogant puisqu'il est arrivé au rendez-vous avec 15 minutes de retard et ne s'est quasiment pas excusé et a continué de répondre à son téléphone pendant l'interview.

    Nous avons principalement parcouru mes expériences passées et quelques questions sur Groupon et le business model de l'entreprise. Pas plus de questions difficiles que cela.

    Je pense que je n'étais seulement pas la personne qu'il recherchait.
