    Recruiting Coordinator Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Wayfair (Boston, MA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I submitted my app on 9/27 and received a follow-up email 5 days latter requesting a phone interview. After completing the initial phone screen, I was invited for an on-site interview where I met not only the recruiting team lead (whom I did the phone screen with), but other team leads/managers in the Talent Acquisition Department. I had a final round phone screen with the Senior Associate in Talent Acquisition since I was unable to meet him during my on-site interview. Less than 10 minutes after the last phone screen I was contacted to schedule a follow-up and given an offer 4 hours later. The on-site interview process was a great opportunity to chat and connect with the team face to face. It was also really nice to get a peek inside the office and culture of Wayfair.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wayfair in October 2017.

    Interview

    I only got to the phone screen portion of the process , however the recruiter told me she would be back in touch either on Friday and the latest Monday. I never received a follow up call or email. I sent an email to follow up and never received a response. Left a very negative feeling towards the company.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Wayfair (Orem, UT) in October 2017.

    Interview

    After applying I received a call for a phone interview. The call went well and the recruiter was very professional. After the phone interview I was invited to take an online assessment. The assessment was a little nerve racking only because it is timed and you don't know whats coming. But It was fairly simple. Next was the group interview. And then the one on one interview.

    Interview Questions

    • Most of the questions are behavioral based. Tell us a time you had to think out of the box to help a customer. The thing that really bothered me was how unprofessional the interviewers were. The first part of the interview was conducted by two women. Both who looked like they just rolled out of bed. Messy hair and crumpled clothes. But they were friendly enough. The second part of the interview was conducted by a woman, who was late because she was getting herself a big gulp. And a man who had only been working for the company for 6 days. When I asked him a basic question. He was not able to answer me. Because he had not had enough work experience. I was a little surprised they would have him preforming the interviews. But over all he was very nice.   Answer Question

    Senior Recruiter Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Wayfair (Boston, MA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Interviewed with a team of 4 recruiters/ recruiting managers. Walked me through the teams that are currently in place. Asked a lot of questions. Each round was repetitive. Huge office in Copley- growing very fast.

    Took 9-10 days to send me a basic message saying they don’t want to move forward. Was very disappointed they should of sent a more personal message instead. I spent almost 3 hours there.

    Product Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Wayfair (Boston, MA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Starts off with a phone followed by another phone interview with a manager followed by in person 4 hour interview. The interview questions themselves were easy. 2 people do behavioral type and 2 cases. The cases a fairly straight forward but they are grading you on a easy medium and advance scale. They look for very specific answers.

    Company itself seems great my bad experience is related to the interviewers. 2 were very uninterested and clearly didn’t want to be there. They were cocky and not engaging. Bummed I wasted so much time.

    BI Team Interview

    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Wayfair (Boston, MA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    phone screen by a recruiter, phone case interview, onsite behavioral and case interviews with 4 people.

    the behavioral and case questions were fairly straightforward.

    positive impressions:
    nice office location

    negative impressions:

    every single one of my interviewers was late
    some of them were barely making an effort to speak
    it felt like none of them really wanted to be there
    it seemed like they had no direction and were going around in a daze
    my recruiter even confessed he was having difficulties locating rooms around the office...

    my experience made me think that wayfair will not last long and the people working there are not happy - they definitely did not seem to be engaged with their work...

    also it looked like wayfair employees are mediocre, not driven and feel threatened if a strong candidate interviews there... the pace seemed very slow...
