Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at PNC Financial Services Group (Clarion, PA) in March 2015.

Interview

Group interview session lasting about hour. There were 12 in attendance. The recruiter and several managers from near branches asked questions. This was a very uncomfortable setting for myself. After the group setting, the recruiter and managers left the room to discuss who was getting a second interview. The recruiter returned and she dismissed us one by one. I had a second interview immediately following, but was told that the position was no longer open and would not be filled.

Your qualifications will have been reviewed to determine if you are a possible fit with for the position and then the interviewing process begins. You will receive an email invitation to attend a group interview. They will give you details about the PNC In-store brand and a minute overview of traditional banking. You quickly learn that In-store Financial Sales is client acquisition and broad product knowledge as well as guiding the customer to review information further with someone else on the career ladder! If you succeed at the group interview stage then you are connected with a branch manager who promptly interviews you to within the same week or following week. (calls you within max 48 hours or group interview results which is usually 48 hours also). I was asked about my career path choices and presented with an vast array of options and even the hope of a mentor to help me successful transition on the career ladder to my next position. The company s very upfront with you that PNC In-Store Financial Consultant is a one year commitment. I have previous financial advising experience so the position is a way for me to get my foot in the door quickly with the company and relicense. The final interview is with a regional Sales & Marketing manager who does a phone interview. This is a 3 interview process to be hired into the PNC In-store Financial Sales Consultant position.
