    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Wayfair.

    Interview

    The first step was a phone interview with two managers in the dept you're applying for. It was a very relaxed conversation about the job and your experience. Then the next step was going into their Boston offices, and I had four 30 minute interviews. Two of them involved case questions and the other two were just conversations. The case questions were current problems that they were working on, and they asked me how I would go about solving them. Overall, a really good experience.

    Interview

    First Round was primarily a case interview on campus

    Second Round was a superday at their offices, interviewed with 3 team members, 2 of which were case interviews and one of which was behavioral.

    The first case was fairly basic, a bit more quantitative. The second case asked more about qualitative factors.

    Overall the process was fairly straightforward, they put you up in a nice hotel that is very close to the offices.

    Interview

    I met with the marketing manager and assistant marketing manager of the group to which I was applying. They were friendly and professional. The interview process was very standard. Standard questions about work experience, interest in working at the company, career goals, etc. I received an offer within a couple of days of my first and only interview. I found there was little room for negotiation on salary, but I was able to get them to boost their initial offer, and I accepted the job.
