    Interview

    two rounds, both are technical, they use PHP so mostly focus on PHP. Unfortunately I didn't have much experience on it so they seems like not even want to continue the interview. Also included questions about protocols and network, and SQL questions like join, how to create two tables

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Wayfair (Boston, MA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    40 minutes long interview with three different individuals. each individual was an expert in their own field (Email Marketing, SEO, Digital Marketing). they all had questions from their own fields. But what seemed to be the most common through out was how to minimize the expense and maximize the brand reach. They were really working hard to get someone who can give new ideas about how to retain a customer.

    I went in for to their Boston offices. There were three half hour interview sessions, the first interview I spoke mostly about my resume and qualifications, the second had mini scenarios they asked me to analytically solve, and the third was a big case study that involved spreadsheet and data. It was all pretty straightforward. Everyone there was very nice and professional.

    Copywriter Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Wayfair (Boston, MA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Applied in early February; to my surprise, I heard back almost a month later. I conducted a phone interview with the talent acquisition specialist. Five days passed and I was invited for a on-site interview. Met with the copy manager, associate creative director, and copywriter and traffic associate to go into the details of the job and my background. Very relaxed and comfortable. I was emailed a copywriting test to take as a next step the evening following the interview, and had 48 hours to complete it. This is where the biggest disappointment came--you submit the work, but receive no feedback. I did not get a follow-up about whether or not the company would move forward with me for 18 days. When I did, it was ultimately a stock reply saying, " At this time, we've determined that your skills and experience don’t match this role quite as well as some other applicants." Bummer after the long wait.
