Today marks the start of Women's History Month. To honor the month and celebrate International Women's Day, Pinterest has launched a brand new Pinterest Shop collection featuring 25 women-founded small businesses and hundreds of products all made, designed or imagined by women. Additionally, throughout the month of March, Pinterest has created an International Women’s Day fund and will match donations from employees to nonprofits helping women succeed like the National Domestic Workers Alliance and the Global Fund for Women. Because when women succeed, we all do. "Around the world, working women were the most affected by changes we saw in 2020 and so we launched the International Women's Day Shop as a way to support and show our commitment to small businesses. Pinterest has always been the place to be inspired and discover new brands. We are thrilled to give these women-run businesses a platform to shine.” - Aya Kanai, Head of Content and Creator Partnerships 📰 Read more: https://lnkd.in/gfetfXi 🛍️ Get your shop on: https://lnkd.in/e_FBZGr 💖 Donate: https://lnkd.in/gxDQXW4

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pinterest (United States) in Oct 2020

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter about a week after applying online. The process started with a 30 minute phone screening with the recruiter. The phone screening was very basic (tell me about yourself, why do you want to work here, etc.). At the end of the phone call, the recruiter said I was moving forward to another phone interview with a Sales Manager. That phone interview was about 30 minutes. I was asked more technical questions (tell me about a time when, etc.) as well as questions about Pinterest specifically (how would you describe the platform to someone who doesn't have Pinterest). A couple weeks later, I received an invite to meet with 4 team members over video (usually onsite, but because of COVID it was on Google Hangouts). Prior to the interview, I was given an Excel document with data and was tasked to put it into a presentation and relay the data to an Account Manager (acting if they were the client). Each person had different questions and themes (i.e. first interview was how I work in a team, last interview was specifics to the vertical I was applying for). I would say that some of the questions were challenging, but if you prepare tactical examples you should do fine. I got a call from the recruiter about a week later and he went over my feedback from each interview which was super helpful. I got the offer about a month after I applied.
