Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PNC Financial Services Group (Hazel Park, MI) in February 2014.

Interview

The total hiring process took just under 2 weeks. I had initial contact with the recruiter who asked me conflict resolution questions, questions about sales plans and setting goals, and questions about how I would manage a branch. After speaking with her for just about an hour she told me that she was sending my information forward to the hiring manager and that the interview would be a panel interview with the Branch Manager, Regional Manager, and 2 other partners. I was to create a business plan for the branch and to have 4 copies ready for my interview. The panel interview was very laid back, but formal. I brought 5 copies of my resume and business plan in the event of an extra person on the panel. Many questions from the phone interview with the recruiter were asked again. Many how would you make this plan, how would you speak to this employee kind of questions. There seemed to be more of emphasis on how you fit with the team as opposed to every little thing that you knew about that particular branch.

Interview Questions

  • Please give a time when you had to create a sales plan. What did you do, what steps did you take, and how were you able to ensure that your plan was working?   Answer Question

Negotiation

There was no real negotiation. The offer was everything that I expected it to be with title and compensation.

    I told them I wanted more money but was turned down. Every other company met me in the middle but PNC will not budge on branch position salaries that are offered. They wouldn't work with me the first time I was there and was offered a promotion either.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at PNC Financial Services Group (Stirling, NJ) in December 2008.

    Interview

    Already employed as a teller supervisor in the branch which had the assistant branch manager open position; current branch manager at the time recommended my promotion and an interview with the regional manager followed shortly thereafter. Actual interview was very typical of banking interviews in which behavior-based questions dominated.

    Negotiation

    Not in a position to negotiate based on my lack of experience in management; was happy to accept a promotion with the intention of seeking a raise in a year
