Customer Service Representative Interview

Customer Service Representative
Boston, MA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wayfair in September 2013.

Interview Details – I had a phone interview followed by a face-to-face interview about a week later. The phone interview was about half an hour long and I was told some basic information about the company and was asked about my resume. The in-person interview was with two employees, who took turns giving me info on the company, asking about past work experience, and asking how I would respond in certain scenarios. For example, what would I do if a long term customer that the company does a lot of business with wants to return an item that is nonreturnable? How would I handle an irate customer? They also asked behavioral questions such as what my biggest weakness is, what motivates me, etc. This lasted for about an hour and a half.

Interview Question – Not really difficult but kind of odd "What would you do if you were talking with a customer and you heard a dog barking in the background?"   Answer Question

Systems Engineer Interview

Systems Engineer

I applied online and interviewed at Wayfair.

Interview Details – Let me put it in two words: it sucks. First of all, if you are driving, they don't reimburse you for the parking cost. Most company reimburse for travel cost. Second of all, the interviews are college grads or people the doesn't have much experience themselves. What a waste of time.
