straightforward, easy. Asked me pretty standard questions and the recruiting process itself took about 3 weeks. Talked to 4 PMs and the recruiter was consistently in touch and very reachable.

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Groupon in Nov 2022

Interview

1er entretien RH de présentation. Entretien assez basique mais clair et sympathique 2ème entretien avec potentiel N+1, questions liées davantage au poste. Entretien commence 10min en retard car il était au téléphone, semblait occupé à faire d'autres choses durant une partie de l'entretien, s'excusait de devoir répondre à d'autres choses importantes, etc. Incohérences entre infos données par RH et par lui Il m'indique être intéressé par mon profil et que j'allais avoir un 3ème entretien avec N+2 mais je n'ai jamais été recontacté par quelqu'un de l'entreprise. Ghosté après avoir pris le temps de faire 2 entretiens avec eux. Puis reçu 1 mois plus tard un questionnaire d'enquête expérience candidats.

Interview

First round is a Problem solving round and second is the Hiring manager round. Interviewers are very friendly but one should thread with them very carefully. Do not overshare your personal experiences. I have cleared first round but failed in Hiring manager round as I overshared and it was used against me

Interview

It was pretty easy. There was a call with a recruiter that included some simple questions and felt more like conversations and then an in person interview with the manager(s) in the Groupon Chicago office.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Groupon (San Francisco, CA) in Aug 2022

Interview

I went through 4 rounds of interviews with Groupon only to be rejected after the 4th round. HUGE waste of my time and effort. The team I met with made me feel so sure I was going to get the job offer, so the rejection completely caught me off guard. First of all, it took a week for me to hear back after the 4th interview and I even had to follow up with the recruiter myself only to get no immediate response. They were not clear about the timeline of the interview process after the 4th interview so I was left waiting with no idea if there would be a fifth interview or a job offer after it. The critiques from the recruiter were that my energy and enthusiasm came off as "overconfidence" and that I did not stop to listen to what the interviewers had to say. I completely disagree with this critique because the structure of the interview was meant for me to be the one talking the most... The interviewers would ask me a question and I would answer it, and they didn't make any effort to make it feel conversational at all. Not only that, but the fact that they dragged me along through 4 rounds of interviews only to reject me in the end for that reason is absurd. They should've rejected me after the first interview if that was really the case. I think it's also worth noting that I'm a female POC. I have no idea whether this was a conscious or subconscious factor in their decision to reject me, but everyone I talked to on the team was Caucasian. Whether this was the case or not, I can't help but feel this way as there really didn't seem to be a valid reason why I didn't get the offer. Overall, I am very dissatisfied with my interview experience at Groupon and would not apply here again nor recommend anyone to apply here either. Please do not waste your time .
