    Full Time Bank Teller Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PNC Financial Services Group in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    Honestly, the interview process is very long. It took about 2 months total from applying to receiving the job offer. I originally applied for a Part time teller position. First, about a week after I applied, I was sent an email to set up a phone interview. The interview took about 10 minutes and the lady was very nice. It was basically a prescreening call and she asked general questions revolving around the pay scale and my sales experience. She then emailed me two assessments and I did those. About 3 week later, the local recruiter for a group interview contacted me. There were 3 other girls who where there with me. The interviewers consisted of the recruiter, her assistant, and one of the branch managers. I had a second interview with the branch manager and they said they would contact me with their decision. About a week later, my recruiter contacted me and she offered me a Full time teller position that was closer to home than the part time teller position. I interviewed with that branch manager on a Monday and the following day I was offered the Full time position.

    Customer Care Associate Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at PNC Financial Services Group in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I submitted an application and didn't hear back for a long time- at least a month. The recruiter then messaged me saying that my info had slipped past, so I'm not sure if that is a common experience. Anyway, I had a very basic phone interview, and was invited to apply for a different position. About 2 weeks later I went to an in-person group interview at one of their Customer Care Centers. It seemed like the candidates were extremely varied for the position. I sat next to a lady who had 30 years of experience and someone fresh out of high school. Be prepared to talk about yourself, a little about your background and why you are interested in PNC in front of all the other candidates as well as various managers. We were then split up into groups of 4 and interviewed simultaneously with two members of the staff. Everyone in the group answers the same questions, so it may be helpful to assert yourself and answer the questions first or second if you already have an appropriate answer prepared.

    Interview Questions
    • Many of the questions were typical interview fare, although some seemed negative-multiple questions about mistakes you've made in the past, stuff like that. I think the point is that they want you to show how you learned or grew as an employee and how you resolved the issue   Answer Question
