Application

I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group in May 2015.

Interview

I was called by an HR manager about 3 or so weeks after I applied. We arranged for an interview within the next week or so. I meet with three managers who were all looking for a new team member and they explained what they did was asked which description I liked best. They asked about my work history and what I liked to do. I asked about corporate culture and mentioned I preferred a cooperative environment. I later suspected that question was what got me the job. Right afterwards I was asked to submit some more online documents, mostly verifying the information from my initial application. After about two or so weeks (which I think was longer than normal because the higher manager was on vacation) I got called for a second interview. Second interview was with one manager, higher than the last three. He asked similar questions and released me before the time was up. The next day I was called with an offer. Had to get drug tested and submit more online documents for taxation purposes.

Interview Questions

Negotiation

I was told I was being offered the high end of the available salary and could not negotiate. It was a good offer so I took it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group (Pittsburgh, PA).

    Interview

    Consisted of HR phone interview, then Manager interview, then an in person interview. Total process took a month. All the interviews were very friendly and enjoyable, but there is A LOT of sitting and waiting around for them... They are not specific with when you will hear from them. That is the hardest part of applying with them in my opinion.

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group (Pittsburgh, PA) in October 2009.

    Interview

    First round interview was on campus and was behavioral. They were just looking to make sure your personality fit with that of the bank. The second was an all day event consisting of 6 interviews with different managers from different lines of business. A few interviewers asked situational questions but the majority were again behavioral. Everyone was very nice and relaxed. I received a phone call 2 weeks later with an offer for a business analyst position.

    Reasons for Declining

    I asked for a different position and all they had was business analyst. The salary was disappointing considering what they pay their business new hires.

    Interview

    Asked basically fit questions, extremely generic HR interview.. I did not want to change my school schedule so i declined the offer and went elsewhere. Basically they will ask you about your schooling, previous work experience... some time where you had to deal with a problem and solve it or tell them about a time you worked in a team. Not so much info on actual job details or what will be needed.
