    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wayfair.

    Interview

    Recruiter cold emailed me 4 times over the course of a month about an opportunity. I finally bit and responded. Over the course of about 2 weeks, went through a series of interviews.
    #1 - call with recruiter to go over role and see if it would be a potential fit. #2 case interview about customer returns. #3 four part final interview: firstly a case study about OTD (cost an performance), second behavioral interview (team building, culture, communication, persuasion), third behavioral (how you measure success, KPIs, data) and fourth behavioral (engineering: relationships/partnerships with teams in the past, tradeoff decisions).
    After spending many hours meeting the team and going through the interview process, was disappointed to be ghosted after the final round.

    Interview

    Three hour coding challenge and then two rounds of technical and one behavioral. Interviewers were really nice and the process was pretty quick. Ask for hints if you’re stuck! The whole process took a couple of weeks. Overall, very enjoyable experience.

    It was very easy. They ask standard behavioral questions. They use the Star method. Look it and be prepared. Be very upbeat, positive, and enthusiastic. Also be very honest as they are will counter some of your answers. It was a panel interview.

    Senior Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wayfair (Boston, MA (US)).

    Interview

    Worst interview experience I’ve had in a while.

    The recruiter barely went over the job and asked me to go through my resume. Once I was done she asked me if I had any questions? She did not ask me any questions. I asked a few questions and when I was done she was already ready to tell me I didn’t meet some of the qualifications like leadership experience.

    I repeated what I said when I went through my Resume and managed Managers and individual contributors.

    It was a total waste of time and preparation on my part and needless to say will never accept any interviews nor apply at Wayfair ever again.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Wayfair.

    Interview

    Received coding quiz invite and attempted immediately. Finished SQL Codility quiz, which they gave 2 hours but can be done within 1. Then I received an email just 2 business days after, said my profile seems fit but they have finished hiring for the season, which is unreasonable and a waste of my time. My experience is inconsistent with the others Glassdoor intern review.
