Diversity Programs & Initiatives

Within Pinterest, we foster inclusion and belonging in many ways:   Pinterest Pinclusion Groups

Our Pinclusion Groups focus on advancing belonging and inclusion. Representing populations that have traditionally been underrepresented in our company and our product, these internal affinity groups include members and allies who are breaking barriers and raising awareness within our company and in society. Pinclusion Groups are employee-run groups that bring together diverse people through community-building, professional development, recruiting and offering product insights to make Pinterest a more inclusive platform.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview
    Application

    I applied through an employee referral The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Pinterest (San Francisco, CA) in May 2022

    Interview

    The process took about 4 weeks. I submitted an application via someone I know at Pinterest who referred me, and the recruiter called about a week after.
    The first call was pretty standard, and was told I would be speaking to the Hiring Manager, which was a few days after the initial call.
    The interview was pretty standard- I talked about my experience, my interest in Pinterest etc. About a week later I was told I would be moving forward to the final round. The final round consists of 4 interviews, all people you would likely be working with. One of the interviews is a case and the questions are behavioral and each interview focuses on one specific area (I.e. Building Capabilities). The case is presented as if the person interviewing is the client. Although it is a lot, and you spend a lot of time preparing, everyone were super nice and the interviews still felt conversational. Everyone seemed super genuine and was interested in hearing about my experience, thought process etc. After about a week, the recruiter called me to let me know I got the job.

    Recruiter communicated well with me throughout the entire process, and the interviews felt somewhat challenging, yet friendly. I still felt I could be myself!
    Interview

    How do you handle ambiguity in the workplace? Why Pinterest (vs. other social media channels)? Have you ever had to convince a client to change a campaign KPI? If so, how did you approach that?
