Merchant Development Representative
If there are two things Paige is passionate about, it’s competition and dogs. Lots and lots of dogs.
What do you love about working at Groupon?
I liked when they announced President’s Club (Groupon’s top sales rep competition) because no one was expecting it. The office was pretty quiet on this particular day (which is rare I know!) and all of the sudden there was Mexican music blasting and people were running around in sombreros and outfits to announce the winners of it!
Who inspires you?
Honestly, there are way too many people who have inspired me in my life to pick just one.
What was your first impression of Groupon?
I kind of felt like I stepped into another world when I first went on my office tour. I absolutely loved everything about the office and I knew right away that it was going to be a fun place to work.
What’s your favorite Groupon story?
I’m not one to brag ever, but this story is too funny to pass up. My good pal Griffin & I were neck and neck for contracts in the GroupOnboarding program (the 12-week training program for Sales). Towards the last few days he was ahead of me and on the last day of the program, a merchant signed my agreement at 4:47 PM. Griffin was so mad that he went back to his desk and kept calling out in hopes to get another contract back! He didn’t and we ended up tied and we beat the old record and made a new GOB record for most contracts closed!
“I love the office environment and how friendly, outgoing, and laid back everyone is. It is a great, challenging job but we are all constantly being rewarded.”
Are you involved in any organizations within Groupon?
I’m a member of Women@Groupon. I love meeting new people here at work and being involved with a women-focused group. In college, I was able to meet a lot of people through my involvement with different clubs and activities, so I felt like this was a great way to get involved.
If you could do any other job for a day, what would it be?
I would be a veterinarian. It was always my dream job and to be honest it still is. I just would be too sad on a daily basis if that was my job to help hurt or injured animals on a daily basis.
What makes Groupon a unique place to work?
I love the office environment and how friendly, outgoing, and laid back everyone is. It is a great, challenging job but we are all constantly being rewarded. I work with a lot of cool, young, and fun people. The office is a great place to be and I really like how there are no cubicles (yuck!)
Tell us something random about you.
I’m totally, completely, and utterly obsessed with dogs. Honestly, if I’m not watching dog videos on the internet, I’m either looking up future breeders, talking about my own dogs, or showing people pictures of my dogs. They are perfect.
