    Digital Experience Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a year or more - interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    PNC contacts me every few months about positions available. The first few times they stated they would setup an in person interview and I never heard back. Finally, I wast contacted again and the initial reviewer only wanted to talk about the benefits of my current employer and how to qualify a salary range without even getting to the interview. I had a couple phone interviews and then received an in person interview. At the end of the interview I was told I would get a test for writing a small web app. I had not heard from anyone for approximately a week, then I received a rejection e-mail. The HR representative could not give me a straight answer what happened that we went from "we'll give you a test" to "sorry, you are not qualified."

    I had actually attended a PNC networking event where one executive claimed he put in 300 resumes before he was considered at PNC - 300?

    I had remained in contact with the recruiter and stated that perhaps my skills weren't as advanced as what they were seeking but would probably fit in as a Product Designer or Manager for their CMS systems. I currently do a little of both. A response that said she will look into it. I have had no contact back.

    To put this into context, I have had companies like Amazon contact me, yet I am not qualified for PNC?

    The constant calling for a position and then dead ends lead me to believe one of two things about PNC, they either do not have a quality recruiting structure or they are just qualifying a position to insource or give to a cheap novice that eventually does not work out for them.

    Let's see how many times they contact me in the next 6 months for the next round of phantom positions.

    Interview Details

    Internal interviews are based on behavioral questions instead of experience and education. Pay not competitive versus other financial institutions. Once an employee I believe behavioral questions should be limited and more based on education and experience.
