At Wayfair, we understand that for candidates considering joining our team, a large part of that consideration is weighed by how they perceive our company culture and whether or not they feel represented in the workplace. It’s important to us that all of our employees, and future employees, feel like Wayfair is a place they can be themselves. In pursuit of that goal, we offer candidates the opportunity to meet with our Culture Ambassadors outside of the formal interview process.
Connect and converse
As candidates move through the interview process, they’re also given the opportunity to connect with one of our Culture Ambassadors for a confidential conversation on company culture, values, diversity, inclusion, or any other topics they choose. These conversations are entirely confidential and serve as an informal, personal way for candidates to have genuine discussions with Wayfair employees and to ask them questions they may not normally feel comfortable asking in a formal interview setting.
It’s also a great opportunity to connect candidates with Wayfair employees who may have experiences similar to their own. By the end of these conversations, our goal is for candidates to feel that they have an accurate understanding of what it’s like to work with us and are fully equipped with the information they need to make their decision.
Who’s eligible for the program?
In short: everyone! Our Culture Ambassador program is available to any candidates who are interested in learning more about Wayfair’s workplace culture generally or about diversity, equity and inclusion topics specifically. When they are invited to a formal interview, candidates can also opt-in to be connected to, and have conversations with, designated Culture Ambassadors within Wayfair. If they’re interested, we schedule a time for them to connect and let the conversations go from there.
If you’re considering applying to Wayfair and are curious about our company culture, our Culture Ambassador program may be a great way for you to get the answers you’re looking for and the most out of your experience as a candidate.
