If anyone has done an interview at Wayfair before, please give me some hints or advice. It's for the algorithm and analytics teams. I didn't get alot of traction job searching when I graduated last semester but I'm glad things are turning around. Thank you :)

They cancelled interviews twice at the very last moment for various reasons, then sent me a message telling that they are moving forward with other candidates. Needless to say it seems a bizarre and irresponsible way to handle candidates since we also have to free our time for such meetings, plan and prepare for them.

Ridiculous experience. Their case studies force candidates to solve cases or business problems they would never have to do in the roles they’re hired for. Place is run by a bunch of consultants trying to do marketing. Stay away!

I interviewed at Wayfair

Interview

Interviewed with the recruiter which was a pretty standard process. She asked background questions and did an excellent job of explaining the role and company culture. She also explained the next steps and rest of the interview process. I received an email 3 days later requesting to fill out my availability over next 7-10 days to schedule an interview with the hiring manager. Over 3 weeks have now passed with no interview scheduled. I’ve followed up by email (no response) and a phone call (was told I could edit my availability and that the hiring manager had been out).

Interview

First interview with HR was simple, the person asked couple of basic questions, she changed the meeting two times. Second Interview with the manager of the area, He asked about background and asked if we could change to spanish as it was a position for the spanish market, my native language is spanish so everything was good, then he asked for my nationality and lost interest as I'm from latin america. I got a surprise someone asks for the country where you are from as the position requires the language only and not nationality.

Process started with initial phone screen. Then a merchandising project, followed by additional rounds of interviews over video. Phone screen was typical questions, however, it took a long time to be able to get responses regarding the project follow up and when the project was missed being sent over email, I did not get a response back as to fixing the problem or moving forward.

Interview

The girl that interviewed me was perfectly nice, although she seemed very unhappy at the role and company while trying to sell it. She asked me a bunch of questions unrelated to the job description (of which I had prepared for) and then I was rejected. All in all it was a lackluster experience. I don't think I would've accepted had I gotten the job based off the feeling of the interview and interviewer alone. I got this feeling it seemed a bit like a prison.
