Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PNC Financial Services Group.

Interview

Received an email stating they would like to set up a phone interview, then had a phone interview several days later. The phone interview is about 20 minutes in length. If you meet the criteria for the position, they will then set up another phone interview with more in depth questions. If you pass that interview, they will then set you up on either a one-on-one or group interview. The group interview is not as bad as you think. They are just looking for how you interact with the people who are going up against you for the position. Having a good personality and being sociable is KEY!! You want to stand out in the crowd, but not try to seem like you're trying to take over the room. It has been my experience that being respectful, personable, funny and attentive are the best attributes. Discussing all of your accomplishments does not seem to hit very well with the interviewing panel. It makes you look like you are trying to 'look' better than everyone else, when they want you to 'be' better by showing your personality and passion for the position.

Interview Questions

  • Would you rather be a book or an animal? Which one and why?   Answer Question

Negotiation

The first offer was very low. I came back with a very high counter offer, so we could meet in the middle. I accomplished getting what I needed/deserved at the time. We went back and forth about 4 times.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at PNC Financial Services Group (Sterling, VA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Helps to have an "in" as there are many applicants. Make yourself different from everyone else, as you will have a group interview. PNC is all about adding value to their clients, and that starts with the client-facing staff, which is the position you're applying for. Uncovering needs, positioning yourself as a financial expert, and offering solutions to those uncovered needs is the name of the game.
