Though Groupon culture is best witnessed in person, wearing goggles to shield your eyes from sparks, we’ve asked a few of our eclectic, hard working employees to answer a few questions about what makes them tick.
Name: Sarah S.
Department: Customer Service
Other Talents: The Shock T’s
**What’s a typical day like for you?**
I get on my computer and start answering customer service e-mails and requests, then I get on the phone for a couple hours to do the same. I eat lunch with my friends, then I go back and take e-mails the rest of the day.
**How high can you jump and why?**
9” in my heyday. Pole vaulter.
**What have you learned since working here?**
I’ve learned that working in a chill environment is not only do-able, but it’s beneficial. I rarely run into problematic people, and everyone seems to want to their job well and have a good time. It’s really nice.
**Which non-Chicago landmark do you wish was in Chicago?**
A huge ski lift
**What was your best/memorable experience so far with this company?**
Probably when our president, Rob Solomon, led us all in a toast for Cinco de Mayo. I was pretty new, and was like…okay, cool. This place is cool.
**Which movie villain could you beat in a fight?**
That snotty girl in “Clueless”
**What should people know about Groupon?**
Groupon cares about their customers, all of them, and we’re not out to hurt anybody.
**Go ahead and make up a Shakespeare quote.**
He doth weep as though seven score crows did fall from the heavens.
**What do you like about working here?**
I can be nice to people who come to me with problems. My co-workers and manager are my friends and they’ve got my back. And the Vitamin Water is pretty great.
**Which karaoke song do you love but can’t sing well?**
I sing every song well.
