    Analyst Interview

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me over LinkedIn as I was not actively looking at the time. I did one phone screen, a one hour case study, and then five hours meeting six people at their offices in Boston, MA. Interview questions were behavioral in nature, with a few math related questions. It was unclear what they were looking for. Recruiter paraded me around the office, where I got some weird looks from current employees. I though the interview itself went exceedingly well, but ended up not getting an offer. The recruiter sent a generic email thanking me for the time but refused to offer feedback in a timely manner. I felt led on and that they were wasting my time. I would not recommend people interview here.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Wayfair (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Multiple phone calls, skype case (terrible idea), long wait time before hearing about next steps. Then it can all come down to one question that you answer wrong and BAM done for a whole department.

    I would waste my time again, I also understand that the woefully underpay even after you make it through the crazy interview process (and devote a lot of time to them).

    Interview

    The recruitment representative was very friendly and took the time to describe the role and the responsibilities. However, she spoke very quickly, therefore making it a bit difficult to follow along. She did not ask any generic questions (why Wayfair, what do you know about Wayfair, how does your experience/skills align with the role responsibilities, best traits, etc.) She asked a lot about my knowledge and comfortability with data analysis.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Wayfair in December 2017.

    Interview

    After receiving a request to interview it took a week for the recruiter to respond to me to set up a phone screen. The email they use to correspond with people is not through a Wayfair account, just shows they do not want to develop relationships with applicants.
