Mission: The place you start when you want to buy just about anything, anytime, anywhere.
Everyone loves to ask us what it's like to work at Groupon. With offices in 16 countries, sometimes it can be hard to describe, so we asked our staff. Here's what they said:
Groupon is a global leader of local commerce and the place you start when you want to buy just about anything, anytime, anywhere.

Advice to Management
Good to see that new higher management is really focused towards getting employee feedback and ensuring each and every comment is read and being actioned.
I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Groupon (Chennai) in October 2018.
Interview process is so quick. They won't make the interview candidates to wait so long. Results will be disclosed immediately. First round is GD. Shortlisted candidates will be moved to Second round which is Versant test. You need to score at least 58 to pass the test. Post the test, there will be ops round and then HR round. Manager and HR are very friendly.
