    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at National City (Cincinnati, OH) in April 2008.

    Interview

    Overall pretty good interview experience. I initially got the interview by applying through my college's website, and then had a phone interivew followed by a weekend long interview process. The phone interivew was a typical behavioral interview, so definitely good to be prepared beforehand.

    The actual in person interviews were conducted over a weekend, with a group of people. The first night consisted of a cocktail party, and then the formal interviews the following day. Expect to interview with at least 3 hiring managers throughout the process.

    Investments Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at National City (Cleveland, OH) in April 2008.

    Interview

    Recruiter was very thorough, prompt, and explained accurately the process. The interviews with management seemed very general. They would not offer specifics as to obstacles to success, impact of PNC purchase, and balance of responsibilities. After doing some additional research, I found that the position's responsibilties were quite different from the description I received. I felt misled.

    I generally liked the people with which I interviewed, but didn't feel confident in their ability as leaders.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions were very basic interview questions. Nothing in depth at all.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at National City in January 2008.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter on the phone. He explained the general information of the job title. He also went over the salary expectations. I met with two managers one on one, they described the job requirements, which ended up being far from the truth. It was not their fault but what upper management made them say.
