Vibrant company with young, hard working professionals
Area Account Executive (Current Employee), Chicago, IL – November 19, 2014
A typical day at Groupon involves the entire sales process. You have the opportunity to generate leads, evaluate a prospect, discover pain points, create/propose a solution, and close all in the same day.
I have learned and honed my sales process skills while working at Groupon. The most important quality I have developed is my ability to be consultative – more... in my sales approach.
Management allows autonomy provided that you deliver on your monthly goals.
Working at Groupon allows you to interact with incredibly intelligent and driven young minds. Having the opportunity to see strategies and ideas from so many different perspectives really helped me grow as a salesperson.
The hardest part of the job is finding the opportunity to grow based on the tools provided. The newly adopted business strategies have made it difficult for less-tenured representatives to find success.
The most enjoyable part is the culture at the office. The young professionals you get to work with on a daily basis make it easy to come to work every day. – less
Product sales (Current Employee), Petaling, M10 – November 6, 2014
A cultural company that includes workers are friendly. The most enjoyable part of the job is they will give the chance to let you involve in a event, give you a chance to organize a event with your teammates.
Picking and Packing (Former Employee), Columbus, OH – October 31, 2014
This place made you want to come to work. They played music and allowed you to enter a sweepstakes every so often. They would give away awesome prizes. I liked working with the staff and seeing new product on the floor.
If upper management didn't suck, this place would be great.
Inside Sales (Former Employee), Chicago, IL – September 19, 2014
Pros: free drinks and coffee, chances for free lunches, the culture.
On the phones, in front of a computer all day. Job amenities were great, colleagues and people are great, but some of the management is pretty horrible. Aside for a select few exemplary individuals who supervised the individual teams, upper managements could care less about their employees as long as they are making money. Have been discriminated and – more... singled out, and also felt under-appreciated for work. The best part is the overall environment with the people you meet. – less
Senior Regional Operations Analyst (Current Employee), London – September 15, 2014
As a new starter business, Groupon has been constantly chaging and evolving. This has helped me to develop and improve new and existing skills and has given me the freedom to work on my own and with a team. Team has been great to work with and is always encouraging personal growth. I look forward to working with a diverse group of people.
Very laid back and caring when it comes to rude customers
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Chicago, IL – July 8, 2014
Pros: internet access all day
Cons: temporary position
I generally like working for groupon. You have your call quota to make for the day. However, its alot of the same work. I'd like to change it up. As a temporary employee though an agency, theres a disconnect between full-time employees and temp (part-time) workers.

Group Fitness Instructor (Former Employee), Chicago, IL – May 16, 2014
Working at Groupon as a Group Fitness Instructor was fun for me. They like the way I kept things fresh and tried new things everyday. They were also very grateful for the knowledge I'd share keeping it very simple to understand.
