    Account Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wayfair (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I had a phone screening and then a few weeks later had an in person interview. I was given a tour of the office and then had a 30 minute interview. I was interviewed by more than one person and it was panel styled. It was intimidating but nothing I was asked was too difficult. My only complaint was that when I walked in I had to check in with the receptionist. I told her I had an interview and she looked up at me and said "Sh*t." She didn't say hi. After swearing at me she confirmed my interview and just told me to take a seat, it was weird. Overall it was a smooth interview process and they got back to me quickly.

    Carrier Performance Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Interview

    Applied online and was contacted within 2 days for a phone screen. Initial phone screen discussed basic qualifications and the company. About a week later another phone screen was scheduled with a "senior" manager. The manager first advised that she did not have a copy of my resume and began asking questions relating to an analyst role, even asking if I had programming experience. This was for a management role but no questions were asked in regards to those skills. Senior manager was cold and quite awkward. I received a rejection email a few days later. I'm the future please advertise roles for what they are, don't ask for management/transportation experience if you are simply looking for an analyst.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you have programming experience? (No as I did not apply for this type of position and my qualifications/experience were discussed during the initial phone screen)   1 Answer

    Recruiting Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Wayfair (Boston, MA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Given this is an entry-level position I was not expecting a difficult interview. My process included a 30-min phone interview in the morning and received my offer later that afternoon. My interviewer was lovely and explained everything the position entailed and what was to be expected of me. Questions were situational and did not require much thought. Never went in in-person but given I got hired as a temp, they are able to easily let me go if I was a poor fit (hoping this will not be the case).

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Wayfair (Boston, MA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and within a few days received a follow-up email from a member of the in-house recruiting team. We scheduled a time for a telephone interview which got a little botched up on their end. (I guess she didn't notice the time zone listed after every proposed time.) I finally connected with the recruiter and she asked the usual questions, including salary history. A few days later I received an email stating I made it to the next round of interviews. The recruiter requested dates and times for an interview with the hiring manager, which I provided. Never heard from her again.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wayfair (South Portland, ME) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied for b2b sales position in Brunswick Maine. Simple online system to schedule an initial phone interview. Simple enough. Got several reminder e-mails. At time of call waited.....and waited....and finally 20 minutes later the phone rings. Total disrespect. I had a finite amount of time, so we had to keep things brief. After a few minutes she revealed the salary, which was pitiful. very unorganized and unprofessional. I am glad I did not invest any major amount of time.
