Find Your Next Opportunity
Our six-month internship programme is designed to help you understand what working as a full-time employee is like. You’ll be assigned real projects, work with your team and contribute directly to your team’s goals and objectives. We hire interns year-round and are open to student and graduate applicants from bachelor’s and master’s programmes.
As a working student, you will be working part-time on a dedicated team while pursuing your studies. You’ll gain experience and insight into your team’s day-to-day responsibilities while supporting them in achieving their goals. You must be enrolled full-time at a university and available to work 16–20 hours per week. We hire working students year-round for our locations in Germany.
No matter what role or tenure, interviews consist of behavioural questions and scenario-based questions. Behavioural questions are specifically-designed questions inspired by the core pillars against which all Wayfair employees are assessed: We Drive Results, We Win Together, and We Are Always Improving. Scenario-based questions are used to assess how candidates might operate in a real-world setting. Here are some tips to help you prepare!
