    ACCEL Mortgage Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    First round of interviews were on campus. They basically see if you are qualified for the position, can speak to your experiences, and have a genuine interest in the company / program. If selected, the second round is in Chicago. Structured very well, the "super day" is meant to see if you are ready for the position and how well you compare to other candidates.

    Interview Questions
    • Standard questions, just trying to see your past work experience and if you would be a good fit for not only the company but also the position.   Answer Question

    Corporate & Institutional Banking Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    This was probably the most disorganized interview process I have ever been through. First round was a short phone screen in which my interview called me almost 20 minutes late. Fairly standard STAR-type questions, and she let me know it would be 3-4 weeks till I heard from them. Ended up being two months, when I was invited to interview at Superday. The planning for Superday was extremely haphazard; I kept having to remind HR that I needed travel booked, itinerary sent over, etc. I only got travel booked three days before I was supposed to leave, and I had to call the hotel to get my confirmation sent to me because no one from HR did.

    Superday was fairly standard, with a small and awkward mixer the night before and a series of interviews the next morning. The interviews were short and relatively easy, but the interviewers were unfriendly and skeptical of everything I told them, despite it all being true. I also was not told the business line I was placed into until Superday itself, and it was something that I was completely uninterested in but was not able to change. I left with an overall terrible impression of the company.

    Personal Banker Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Process:
    1. applied for Personal Banker Position, passed online assessment
    2. month later has been contacted by recruiter and offered Universal Banker position
    3. next day applied for universal banker position, few days later emailed recruiter to check on the status of application but received letter stating that position has been filled.
    4. after 1 week applied for Personal banker position in a different location, never been contacted but received a letter stating that they have decided to go forward with other candidates.
    However, i am young professional with excellent reputation at other financial institutions, excellent people, customer service skills and with a proof of high goals achievements.

    Opinion:
    recruiter is very unprofessional person, never responded to my email, did not ask any questions during a phone interview, was talking to me in very unprofessional manner or maybe she was uneducated. In my opinion PNC should not hire recruiters like her if they do not want to have any bad Company reviews......By the way check on youtube the hiring process for Heineken !Its amazing!!!!!!

    Had a first round interview on campus. The interviewer was really nice and had a great conversation. The first round is very basic questions. Nothing technical just behavioral. That to not really it more of just a relaxed conversation. Know your resume well and have good stories to explain your experiences.

    Financial Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    My initial contact with PNC was a phone interview with the H.R. Department. I interviewed for different positions. 2 In-person panel interviews and then a final interview over the phone.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked me to Role Play which was no big deal, but unexpected. PNC did not disclose that it did not pay the Financial Specialist position commission on the managed money investments unless they had a series 65 or 7. (other financial institutions in this market do and PNC does pay other similar positions on managed money sales with out these licenses). Make sure you get clarification of the compensation program. It really varies greatly.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They said there was no negotiation and the base salary was fixed. However, my co-workers did negotiate and did receive higher salaries. I would recommend holding out, they are desperate to fill positions.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 days - interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group in December 2011.

    Interview Details

    They had a meet and greet mixer before each interview. One 2:1 interview and then a superday. Typical for a bank I feel like. PNC was great, if I had the choice to work for any bank I have intereviewed with it would be PNC. Everyone was very nice, no one made you feel like you were being interrogated, the interviewers were respectfull and up front about everything as well.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group in November 2011.

    Interview Details

    The first interview was held on campus and it was pretty informal. They genuinely seemed interested in getting to know me as a person, only talked about one thing on my resume, which was a Sales job I had back in high school. The interview only lasted about 15 minutes so I wasn't sure what to really expect. I got invited to their Superday in Chicago and this consisted of 3 interviews throughout the day. Each interview was designed to test a certain trait/ quality about you communication, analytic skills, leadership etc. These interviews were also pretty casual and the interviewers seemed very friendly.

    I was able to ask for a two week extension on my deadline to accept the internship. If you have other offers pending, I would just ask them as they seemed pretty understanding.
