    Le processus a pris +8 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Pinterest (San Francisco, CA (États-Unis)) en octobre 2018.

    Entretien

    The interview process was very drawn out. I had initial phone interview with HR in mid August. After that I had to wait 2.5 weeks for next phone interview with hiring attorney. After that i had to wait 3.5 weeks to go in for interviews with 4 people. After that waited 4 days for feedback and it was a no go. They asked me a lot of questions how I would implement processes, nothing unusual.

    Did a interview test that has to be done in python, you can find the question if you google it. But they give you a week for it, so even if you don't know python you can figure it out.
    Then did phone interview, and then a full day onsite.
    I really liked the people so it worth interviewing there.

    Entretien

    A manager at Pinterest saw my profile on LinkedIn and reached out to me to have a chat. After we met up and talked, he set me up with a recruiter to arrange a phone interview with one of the engineers. During the phone interview, I was first asked about my background, then I was asked to write some code using collabedit, and finally I was given the opportunity to ask some questions.

    Entretien

    The process took a little more than a month. There was one phone interview, where there was a discussion about past projects and a small coding problem. For the on-site interview, I met 4 people.

    1. Discussion on past projects. One algorithm question related to a data structures.
    2. Object oriented code design question
    3. Algorithm questions on arrays and tress.
    4. System design question.

    The people there were very nice, and the interview was smooth.

    Entretien

    The whole process took about two weeks.

    1. Apply online
    2. Recruiter call you for 45min - ask you about your experience and what you want to do. She will check with hiring manager to see if there is a match. All companies does this step. However, I think its waste of time. They should start with Tech phone screening.

    3. Tech phone screen ~1hr. (First 45min talking about your experience, last 15min for coding)
    4. onsite interview (coding only)

    Questions d'entretien d'embauche

    • Given an input string and a dictionary of words, find out if the input string can be segmented into a space-separated sequence of dictionary words. You need to output the minimum number of words.

      For example,

      input: "aaaisaname"
      dict: ("a", "aaa", "is", "name")

      output: "aaa is a name"

      Wrong output: "a a a is a name"   7 Réponses
    • Print a N x M matrix in diagonal from the upper left to lower right. However, with the following caveat. It's easy to just show the input and expect output.

      matrix:
      a b c
      d e f g
      h i j k

      output:

    • Split a sentence into words (even though Pinterest is written in Python, they don't want you to just use Python's split function, but use a lower level language like C to take less memory).   2 Réponses

    Painless process. The recruiter was available and helpful throughout.

    The interview questions ranged from hands-on coding, to algorithms, to architecture, to UI. Difficulty was above average, similar to a Google or Apple on-site. Stay focused, don't panic, explain your thought process as you go, and make sure your grey matter is well rested beforehand. The questions aren't insanely difficult, but they have pitfalls and traps, and getting a correct answer isn't the only thing that matters.

    All the interviewers were super nice and went out of the way to answer questions I had about the company. Make sure you have thoughtful Pinterest-related questions to ask and new ideas to share. They are getting a read on your preparation, thought process, and priorities when doing the reverse interview.

    • Enumerate all NxN grids that can be composed of valid English words. Architect a chess program. And an amusing question about finding "happy" numbers.   3 Réponses

    Négociation

    Base salary was a bit low, but they offered a stunning amount of equity. Don't bother negotiating if your only reason is "just cause." I had two other offers with higher base and commensurate equity so they were willing to wiggle a bit on the base/equity to increase my comfort level. Superb offer if you are bullish on the future of Pinterest, they are clearly looking for long-term, invested employees.

    Interviewed with them at a University Recruiting Event. Met with one of their new engineers and answered one question. The interview lasted about 30 minutes. The interviewer was really nice and did a good job of exploring various ways we could optimize the solution.

    J'ai postulé via une recommandation d'un employé. Le processus a pris 3 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Pinterest.

    Entretien

    Hiring process overall was pretty smooth. Fun phone screen. Had some delicious (albeit short) lunch there. Interviewed with five people, mostly amicable and interesting. One was open-ended about previous experience, one was architectural, and the rest focused only on scholastic algorithmical experience and O notation with a bit of data structure.

    This was all in a couple of weeks from first sending in a resume and getting a feel for positions from the recruiter.
