    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Wayfair.

    Interview

    Wayfair has some of the worst recruiting practices out there. Multiple recruiters at the company have reached out to me and all of them have blown off the initial call, only to reach back out and do the same thing. No regard for people's time or for the candidate experience.

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Wayfair in February 2017.

    Interview

    Focus on tech questions and case study questions, won't thoroughly go through your resume. They will let you introduce your past experience and ask a lot about the projects you've done before and then go directly into tech questions.

    UX Designer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Wayfair is engaging in the common practice of using interviews to get steal free consulting from prospective applicants. The company asks applicants to review its website and explain in detail how the applicant would improve on page of the UX including research. Regardless of whether or not the company chooses this applicant, it retains all of the solutions. It was a very disappointing experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    I had a great initial phone screen with the recruiter. He seemed extremely interested in me and said I would be a great addition to the team. Next I was given a design challenge related to their company and given a deadline of a week. After that, I followed up and they kept me on a string for a month. I kept asking if there were any updates to the process and finally gave up, until a month later the recruiter called and profusely apologized for the lack of updates. He said they were going through a reorg and figuring out which roles they needed. I decided to give another chance. They then scheduled a second phone screen with a UX lead. The interview went very well. After that, they ghosted?? I followed up once again and not a word. Overall very unprofessional and honestly straight up rude. I do not recommend.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Wayfair (Boston, MA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through university recruiting and had the second (final) round at their HQ. First step was a short case + short behavioral with one person. Second step was 45 min each of case and behavioral with different people. They put a lot of emphasis on their case interviews. The calculations/problems are pretty easy, but make sure to explain your thoughts thoroughly and give your reasoning for any answers. I had never done a case interview before and was ultimately not offered a positionbecause I didn't explain myself well enough. Process was a pleasure overall.
