    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pinterest.

    Interview

    It was smooth. There will be an online coding assessment, then a video interview. The video interview will also be a coding challenge, and I was asked two questions. The second question was just a brief explanation on how I would approach the problem.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Pinterest in February 2021.

    Interview

    I was interviewing for this role and had a wonderful experience from the start. I had a phone screen that went great and then a google hang out with the hiring manager. I was then told I would be going to the last round which typically was a on site. However, with covid it would be virtual. It has been over a week and I have followed up twice via email my recruiter and coordinator. I have not heard back.

    Marketing Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Pinterest (San Francisco, CA (US)) in February 2021.

    Interview

    Was approached by a Product Marketing Manager from Pinterest via email. The person said I was a potential candidate that would qualify for a contract position in the Marketing Team.

    I was not given a phone screen with the hiring manager and immediately given a take-home exercise; I was given a 3-day deadline. After sending back the exercise, the hiring manager stated that the team would review my test and follow up afterward.

    Few days pass, and I did not hear a response back. Naturally, I sent an email as a follow-up on the process of my exercise. Several days later the follow-up email, I received a rejection notice from a "No-Reply" email with a Recruitment Team signature. The notice did not indicate why my application was rejected or any feedback on what I could have improved in my exercise.

    Overall, this experience has left me feeling robbed of my work. I believe this sort of behavior from the hiring manager was very unethical and unprofessional. I will no longer apply to Pinterest positions again.

    I applied online and was reached out to in following weeks. The process was pretty typical - introductory screening, an interview with the hiring manager, and a case study. Had I moved along, there would have been a presentation and review of the case study.
