Diversity Programs & Initiatives

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

Our Pinterest Communities focus on advancing belonging and inclusion. Representing populations that have traditionally been underrepresented in our company and our product, these communities include members and allies who are breaking barriers and raising awareness within our company and in society. Pinterest Communities 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. Meet them in our .css-1h8fl5g{width:100%;height:60px;position:absolute;bottom:0px;background:linear-gradient(to bottom,rgba(255,255,255,0) 0%,rgba(255,255,255,1) 90%);}

  1. Finance Analyst Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pinterest (San Francisco, CA)

    Interview

    First I had applied to the position 2 months prior, which is not a strong way to start.

    They started with a virtual interview and moved to a case study. They took forever to respond approximately a week and a half for both (only because I reached out). The case study took hours to do and they rejected me after. I spent hours and waited patiently and they couldn’t even send me an email stating they rejected me. If you’re going through the process and they are taking their time and you have other offers, take the other offers.

    They need to change their HR processes to respect the candidates more.
    Interview

    Describe yourself and walk me through your resume.
