    Digital Experience Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I interviewed 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.

    Project Manager III Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied for the job and a week later heard from the HR Recruiter. She asked basic questions about my project management experience, specifically asking if I had ever managed a project End-to-end and what my experience was in Estimating and budgeting projects. I was then brought in for a day of 4 30 Minute interviews. 1 with the hiring manager, 1 with a Senior Manager within the same department, and 2 interviews with Project Managers on the PMO team. Interview questions were pretty basic behavioral questions relating to my experience in Project management and Process improvement efforts. Here's a sampling of the questions asked between the four interviews:
    - Tell me about a time you had to come up with a creative solution?
    - What's the project you are most proud of?
    - Tell me three things that are important to you about where you work
    - How do you manage organizational change?
    - What did you chose to attend the undergraduate college you went to?
    - Tell me about process improvement projects you have worked on and what tools you used?
    - What training have you had in Lean Management and Project Management?
    - Tell me about a time you had to deal with a difficult sponsor or client?
    - How did you manage risk in your other projects?
    - What is your management style?

    Continuous Improvement Process Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Pittsburgh, PA
    Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at PNC Financial Services Group in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was first contacted via email by a recruiter to gauge my interest. As we progressed to the screening call I found her to be very east to work with and she was always responsive to my questions.

    A phone interview with the department head followed and then a panel interview. The panel interview consisted of 5 people in the room and another 3 on the conference call. They did a good job of making the situation as stress free as possible.

    Unfortunately, the original recruiter went on long term leave on the day after my panel interview. The recruiter that replaced her made no effort to let me know of next steps or if I didn't get the job. To this day I have never heard back from anyone at PNC in any format.

    Overall, it was a good experience except for the lack of communication after the interview.
