    Community Operations Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dublin, Co. Dublin
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pinterest (Dublin, Co. Dublin).

    Interview

    Shortly after I submitted my CV, I received a response from the recruiter inviting to proceed with the interview process. The first step was to submit a writing sample. When applying for a language role, this would be in both languages (English + x language).
    Next, phone call with a hiring manger and an on-site interview.
    During the call, the questions were focused on my readiness to do monotonous work, experience working in a team and general understanding of the role.
    Heads up: while most Pinterets-scale companies would hire vendors to do similar work, Pinterest is hiring people full-time to do the job. With that in mind, the job itself is monotonous, with little career opportunities available and people hired have often little to no experience.
    On-site was with 3 or 4 different people, each focusing on different areas like Problem Solving, Team work, Culture, Critical thinking. I met one of the future teammates, the hiring manager and one manager from the XFN team.
    As mentioned, the questions were focused on my ability to deal with the big amount of monotonous work, ability to work independently, previous experience working in the team, and general getting to know you kind of questions. It is very important to provide examples to the questions asked and show interest in the role and the company by, for example, asking follow up questions.
    Some of the questions seemed to be vague and irrelevant. For example, "How would you describe Pinterest with three words?", "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?" and lastly, the classic "Why should we hire you?" question. But it depends on the interviewer.
    Overall, it was a very pleasant experience. I was greeted by one of the team members, shown around the office, offered snacks and drinks. All people interviewed me were nice and easy to chat to and seemed to be genuinely interested in me as a person. The recruiter was very responsive, provided all the preparing materials.

    Interview Questions

    • 1. How do you keep yourself entertained when dealing with a big amount of monotonous work?
      2. How do you keep the quality when dealing with a big quantity?
      3. In a work environment of written communication only, how would you effectively communicate with users (older, not technically savvy users)?
      4. Do you use Pinterest, if yes what are you currently pinning?
      5. How do you deal with conflicts at work?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation for that role. Offered salary was 15-20% higher that the average for similar position.

Company Updates

  • From intentional self-care programming to enhanced mental health benefits, Pinterest has been taking steps to empower employees with resources to do their best work and reorganize their lives to meet today's unprecedented needs. Our CHRO Jo Dennis reflects on the team's approach.

  • COVID-19

    As we settle into our new normal, we are supporting our team members with useful resources and an open dialogue. This month, we launched Pintentions, a four-week, self-care initiative with a deliberate focus on Pinployees and their well being. Each week our leaders are sharing collated resources and best practices focused across four pillars: prioritizing, controlling, connecting and learning. The goal is to help employees simplify and streamline work while connecting in a meaningful way. We’re in this—and we’ll get through this—together.
