Hey Guys, Is there some kind of group chat for incoming interns at Pinterest/Uber/Twitter etc...? I accepted an offer at Pinterest and I want start looking for housing early and I assume it would be cheaper to find house mates rather than living alone? So is there a group chat like that here or on other platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, Reddit etc...

    ^ do this since you're a winter intern. You'll get a really nice corporate housing.

    Go with corporate housing. It’s a much better intern experience than using the stipend to find your own housing.

      really, can you tell me why you think that? Tbh I would love to the corporate housing but I don't really dig the thought of sharing a bedroom with someone else lmao

      You won't. You're a winter intern. There are only like 6 to 7 of you. Every winter intern I know got full corporate housing

      Sharing a room isn’t bad it’s only three months. When I interned all of the corporate housing interns were close: hung out on weekends/after work at the corporate housing and also walked to/from work everyday. The interns that found their own housing were more detached from other interns

    Blind not very good for interns tbh. I suggest asking your recruiter about it.

    Yeah corporate housing really isn't the best if you value privacy, but was worth it for me bc of the convenience. Finding housing for the summer is hard, and near impossible this early
