I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wayfair in August 2012.
Interview Details –
I applied for the position through my university's career portal. The first interview was a phone interview with a member of HR. He mostly asked about stuff on my resume, and other HR/fit questions.
The following week I was invited for an in-person interview. It lasted about 2.5 hours in total, and consisted of 4 interviews. First was a 2 person case interview with the Manager and Senior Analyst. The case wasn't that bad. He gave me a spreadsheet and asked for me to describe the scenario/strategies involved, and their results. Then more generic questions about the case.
The next one is 1:1 with another member and another mini-case interview to basically test your basic algebra. He was very nice.
Then a 10 min interview with the VP. Only fit questions here.
It ends with the HR guy again. All in all they were very nice.
I was told that although my performance in the case interviews were positive, there were other candidates who fit more with the firm... Generic stuff.
Interview Question – Why do you want to work for online retailing? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Wayfair in September 2010.
Interview Details – Phone call involves a "walk me through your resume" standard question, and then a mini-case talking about general SEO. Second round interview was just a bunch of skills tests about whether or not you can do algebra on the spot to figure out some common scenarios. Also did a market sizing question and a regular non-numbers type case. Consisted of three, two person interviews. Employees seemed generally dry and bored with their work. After you do some of these cases, you might be pretty bored too. Having fumbled a case, not surprised I wasn't offered a position.
The process took a day - interviewed at Wayfair in November 2009.
Interview Details – A week after sending my resume I called to confirm they received it. The manager said she had not looked at them yet, then later that night the HR representitve emailed me to set up a phone interview. I had a phone interview later in the week. It was mostly asking questions about what I had on my resume, including past experience and projects I had completed in college. The next day I got an email to set up an in-person interview in Boston. The interview consisted of three groups of people (future peers, managers, and a VP) of asking very similar questions. Also, there were two seperate skills tests focused around Google AdWords concepts.
Interview Question – Do you prefer team work or individual work? Answer Question
I applied online - interviewed at Wayfair in October 2012.
Interview Details – After submitting my application online, I was contacted for a phone interview then brought in for an in-person interview. The in-person took about 3 hours. It started out with a brief conversation with a recruiter followed by 2 case studies and a 1:1. Throughout the entire process, employees were enthusiastic and answered all my questions. Seems like a great place to work at! Good luck!
