Campus & Early Career Programs
At Wayfair, our behavioral interviews consist of behavioral questions and scenario based questions. Behavioral Questions are specifically designed questions inspired by the core competencies against which all Wayfair employees are assessed: team building & culture, innovation & results, critical thinking, and communication & persuasion. Scenario-Based Questions are questions used to assess how candidates might operate in a real-world setting. This is oftentimes the best way to understand a candidate’s skills and experience.
It’s an opportunity for you to understand how we approach, analyze, and grow a category business at Wayfair. We’ll bring you a business scenario relating to a specific Wayfair category to see first hand how you tackle a problem.
Technical interviews are a way of evaluating how you are able to "think on your feet” and showcase your technical and problem solving skills.
Ask clarifying questions and take some time to collect and organize your thoughts before answering.
Provide specific, concrete answers as opposed to broad generalizations.
Be prepared for probing questions that will encourage you to dig deeper.
Keep in mind how different metrics connect and influence each other.
Come prepared with pen and paper to take notes and complete calculations (you will be permitted to use a calculator) for your case or technical interview. *EU roles* depending on the team/role you are interviewing for, we will let you know if you are allowed to use a calculator.
Come prepared with questions for the last few minutes of the interview – we’re always happy to chat!
