    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    Interview

    Recruiter was quick to get back to me. Phone screen and then 2 rounds of in person. The in person interview was a little intense as you meet with different managers from different teams and they assess where you would fit best.

    Associate Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Wayfair (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    A couple of calls and then in-person interview. Generic get-to-know-you interview questions. They are looking for analytical people and will present typical business cases for you to solve. It wasn't overly difficult but felt very corporate.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wayfair (Boston, MA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Got an email the next day asking for my availability for a half hour phone interview. I give it and me and the recruiter agree for a date a couple days in the future.

    The day comes and I wait over half an hour. I get no call. I email the recruiter asking if I'm still under consideration and he said he had to leave the office early. I received no email notifying me of a change in his schedule, which is what I'm used to. Instead I wasted time expecting a phone call that never came.

    We agree on another date in the future. The interviewer was 20 minutes late but did call me. Seemed extremely uninterested over the phone. What was supposed to be a 30 min interview turned into more of a 10 minute conversation, perhaps because he was late and didn't want to waste time on the interview.

    Asked me 2 easy questions (What do you know about Wayfair, explain your most recent internship experience in some greater detail) then asked if I had any questions.

    Got a generic rejection email a couple days later. No idea why I got rejected, but I have never encountered such unprofessional behavior during a job search.

    Product Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Wayfair.

    Interview

    As most of the people mentioned in their reviews, the interview process is completely broken. The recruiters are highly unprofessional. I went through recommendation of a Director and it took recruiter 1 month to make an introductory phone call. Even though the recruiter promised that he will get back to me in next few days, it took him 1.5 months to get back to me. I have to go back to my connections again to get their help in moving forward. Finally, I was put in touch with another Director, who was mostly clueless about the position. Not to my surprise, the job description that was shared with me was from PM role and the interviewer told me that he is looking more for a GM/Category Manager role - much more senior than my experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Wayfair (Boston, MA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Brief phone screen followed by an in-person interview with 3 different pairs of interviewers. The panels were broken down in the following order: situational, case study and personality/culture fit. Pretty straight forward.

    Never heard back one way or the other, but it was still a smooth process regardless.
