Lol wayfair recruiter reached out and I ffered me 45k base (1 year exp). I said you have to at least double it

Associate 1 hit it pretty well. Seems like generally a toxic culture. Amazon can afford to work their employees as they strive for innovation but wayfair seems to just operate poorly.

I also got a low-ball offer from wayfair, they offered 20% less than I’m making in current role

Thanks for the post OP. Recruiter reached out to me as well. Interested in the pay increase if anyone has an idea.

Personal experience aside be careful. Friend used to work there. Stingy and not the most ethical company. He was in sales, top salesmen, 1M+ sales from undergrad, but they lied about his commission % when they recruited him. He was thinking of suing after he left, but decided against it

OP what level are you at EY?

No sure about SM level but for associates or senior associates you’ll likely have to take a pay cut

Recruiter emailed me from there, too. They’re really hitting us up these days!

Why the low ball offers from WayFair? Recruiter said there experiencing growth, doesn't that mean they should pay more?

I mean my offer is 60 k more than I make now all in. 200k Vs 140k. Not sure why you are getting lowball

Maybe I should have gave the recruiter give a shot 😥.

EY OP, my friend tells me they really offer a super wide range. Part of the reason for the toxic culture they often bring in consultants at a more senior level, pay them a lot, but make it nearly impossible for internal employees to reach the same level. 60k more could be worth it, but you should consider B4 > wayfair overall as far as companies are concerned

I'd love to hear about what people are doing to stand out in providing feedback for candidates who made it to the final interview stage but did not make the offer.

The “Sunday Scaries” seem to b in full-effect 4 me right now. I like the firm I work 4 but I’m underpaid by at least $40k. I’ve been casually interviewing elsewhere the past few months but haven’t received any offers. I’m leading a team @ work of colleagues who’re more senior than me & having trouble seeing/understanding the next steps I should take. The “not knowing what to do next” makes me feel far less confident in my abilities & that I wouldn’t be able to “cut it” at another firm.
