    Contracts Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA (US)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Wayfair (Boston, MA (US)) in April 2011.

    Interview

    The interview took place in a conference given that everyone in the office just had a desk as their work station, including the CEO. It is a very relaxed and easy going environment. The interviewer listened and questioned about career objectives to see if the position will be a good fit. The interviewer clearly thinks highly of the company and is willing to share the current status of how the company is doing. In the end, I was told I was over qualified for the position and it indeed seems like this company attracts mostly young and fresh graduates and they are hiring.

The Final round interview event was much of the same except for a case that you received where you would have to identify trends within a sales spreadsheet given to you.
