I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group.
Interview Details – Got an initial telephone call from a Junior Recruiter, just testing my interest and scheduling time for a telephonic with the senior recruiter. No technical questions just checking if I am still interested, and employment status.
Next up a more senior recruiter did a telephonic interview lasted about 30 mins. Gave and overview of the company, the group and what they are looking for, and the rest of the questions were more conversational as to why I am looking to move etc.
She was the one who remained in touch with me throughout the process.
Next up a 1 on 1 with my Boss to be. Was technical as well as general, lasted about 1 hour. Gave and overview and in detail about the group in particular and normal interview, asked questions like how to calculate EPS and EBITDA etc. Nothing out of the ordinary.
Next up another interview with 3 other senior members of the group. Lasted about 2 hours. Going over my background, again technical questions.
Lastly met with the MD and my manager to be again, I knew its all good by then.
Next day recruiter came back to me with the offer.
I pushed back and negotiated on a couple of things like salary and some other things.
Joined the firm in 3 weeks.
Interview Question – Advisor: "Why didnt you ask me what I hate the most about my job?" View Answer
Negotiation Details – The offer was already 25% more than what I was making, but still I was able to end with 30% more, so not bad. It was easy, the recruiter asked me what would be the final point I would move at, I gave her a number and she made that happen.
