Branch Financial Sales Consultant Interview

Anonymous Employee in Alpharetta, GA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PNC Financial Services Group (Alpharetta, GA) in May 2015.

Interview

Applied for a position in Alpharetta, GA. The hiring process was drawn out way to much; by far the longest process I have ever experienced. I first applied 2 months ago and received a phone call by the HR recruiter shortly after. Two weeks after the initial phone screening, I was set up for a interview with the Branch Manager. Keep in mind that this is essentially an Front-Line employee position, unlike any other bank, I had to interview with the Regional Manager. For what reason? They claim she is hands on and wants to know everyone. The Regional was on vacation the following week so I had to wait 1 1/2 weeks before I was able to interview with her. After this interview, she then wanted me to drive to another branch to meet a different Branch Manager; different than the one I originally met with. This whole process not to be offered the position. The hiring process was completely to drawn out and a lot of wasted time to not be offered a position. This definitely sheds a negative light on wanting to work for this company in the future. Probably would never apply for PNC Bank again.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at PNC Financial Services Group (Wilmington, DE) in January 2015.

    Interview

    After I applied, I was contacted by a recruiter and had a brief phone interview. She then set up a group meeting interview, consisting of 8 other recruits. It was a straight forward process that only took about 2 weeks due to an emergency re-schedule on their part. I was "offered' a position higher than what I originally applied but unfortunately the position was filled internally before I could begin. Now I am in a holding pattern, hoping that another similar, position will open. The recruiter has been very good about keeping in touch although it is a bit frustrating to wait.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at PNC Financial Services Group (Canton, OH).

    Interview

    Submit application and resume online. If recruiters are interested, they email an assessment to you. Questions are generic personality trait questions, capacity and ethics questions. Recruiter contacts you by phone for a phone interview. More like a conversation than an interview. They will set you an appt to meet the branch manager and have a face to face interview. Recruiter calls after face interview to make salary offer.

    Interview Questions

    • "Tell me how you would deal with an angry customer" "tell me about a time when you turned a bad interaction into a positive experience"   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Extremely tough negotiators. They like to use the line "but this is the salary everyone starts out at in this position"
