    The recruiter Audrey rescheduled my initial phone screen four times. Two out of the four times I was notified 15 minutes prior to my scheduled time she was not going to make it. She was very unresponsive through emails, I had to follow up with her multiple times and would take her days to respond.

    Category Associate Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Wayfair in November 2020.

    Interview

    Lets just say I am very disappointed in Wayfair. The recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn to discuss a few open positions they wanted to place me in. I had a 30 min phone call with the recruiter, who then set up the initial case study interview. After the case study happened (I think I did well, but honestly received 0 feedback), I was told the position had internal interest and they have to interview all of them first. Fine by me, internal promoting is a great practice, but why are you wasting my time if you reached out to me. After another week and a half of waiting, the recruiter passed me off to another recruiter to see if another position was open. There were some other spots open, so the recruiter set up three additional interviews (2 behavioral, and 1 more case study) over the course of 3 separate days. After I finished the interviews, I was told to wait another week just to get a phone call saying everyone really liked meeting you but we are moving forward with other candidates. What baffles me is the fact that I didn't even apply for these positions, and they strung me along keeping my hopes high throughout the entire month and a half long process just to be told no.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wayfair (Boston, MA (US)) in November 2020.

    Interview

    Recruiters were very clear regarding timeline and next steps after each interview (3 steps: initial recruiter call, technical case study, final onsite over two days with behavioral and technical days). They give you some information about the technical case so you can prepare for it, which I found very helpful. Overall a very good experience.
